Do you pull inspiration on characters from your daily life? If not where does your inspiration come from?

What's your favorite holiday, and how do you celebrate it?
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse.

Which character most resembles you?
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.

Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

* When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

* Do you read and reply to comments of your readers? Does a bad review affect your writing?

What drives you to write?
What was the book that started it all for you?
What is the goal that you have for your book(s)?
You supports you, meaning who has your back?
What quote drives you to go forward?
What is your favorite genre?
Who are your favorite characters that you have written and why?

Which is your favourite book?
When people say you've changed, it just means that you have stopped living your life, their way.

Has anyone else had this problem and if so how did they managed to get it converted. I've been pulling my hair out. I even called Amazon and that was a serious waste of time.

Please advise, Thanks!
You might want to try other apps. I got ereader prestigio free on play store. It reads many different kinds of files. There is also a forum here about that. Try searching for it. It's a great help.

Are you widely-read? They say in order write well, you have to be a great reader as well. If so, who is your favorite author/s or what kind of books do you read? Is it the same kind of books that you write?

I have to read all replies to make sure I will be asking a different question. Whew!

This is an interesting question. And if I may add, do you do anything for a living aside from being a writer?

I want to know the inspiring or motivating factor that lead the author to write this book. And 2. Does he have the idea of the book as a whole or does the idea or inspiration comes as the work progress?

Daylights Savings Time: yay or nay?

If your novel is ever adapted, what actors do you want to portray your characters?

If you could write a sequel or prequel to a classic novel, what would you choose and why?
