1.) Tell us what a day in the life of Perci T. Brooks is like.
2.) What made you want to start writing?
The author R.L. Stine. I read his books when I was younger and I wanted to do that. I also wanted to write like him, but it never came out right. So my sister noticed I write young adult. So that’s in the same area as him.
3.) When writing, do you prefer silence or some kind of background noise?
I prefer to have background noise. Either the TV being on or listen to music.
4.) Morning person or night owl?
Mid-day person with heavy leanings towards night owlery.
5.) Do you prefer to have a schedule or wing it?
I like to wing it.
6.) When you have downtime from writing, what do you like to do?
I enjoy reading (that includes also reading manga), cross stitching, hanging out with my sister, talking to my girlfriend, listening to music (such as Adam Lambert, Queen, Gackt, Dir en Grey, Super Junior, NU’EST, SHINee, Malice Mizer, Versailles, Jupiter, Kamijo, Moi dix Mois & many more) and playing with my cats.
7.) Do you make an outline or just write?
I make an outline. I need to make notes for the things I write. It’s better that way for me.
8.) What advice would you give aspiring writers? Never give up on your dream. No matter what others may say.
9.) How do you come up with your ideas? I can easily get inspired by what I listen to and most of the time something just pops into my head. I just go with it.
10.) Do you like to base your characters on pure fiction or is there a little of real friends in them?
Most of my characters are pure fiction and a select few are modeled after some of my friends.
11.) Do you have a favorite author and why?
I got a few of them. 1: R.L. Stine, the man opened my eyes to writing and all I did was read a few books of his Fear Street books and that was what I wanted to do. I wanted to be an author like him, 2: Stephen King…The man got rejected so many times and he never gave up. He’s such an inspiration and 3: Lynn Flewelling of the Nightrunner Series. Her main 2 characters Alec & Seregil end up together as male/male couple and that inspired me to get mine published, because I wasn’t going to do it. I thought people wouldn’t read what I write.
