Who are some of your favorite writers? Or the last book you have read?

Stephen King used to be my favorite writer, I still idolize his writings and his mind but I haven't been able to read his books. The last two or three books I read were all by George Carlin, his autobiography and "When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?"

What would you like to improve with your writing?

My writing skills, my point of view in writing, but most of all: motive. I have been having a lack of motive to write and I wish to be able to write for fun and for a career but I can't seem to find my place.

What genres do you tend to write? For example, paranormal romance, hard science fiction, etc.

Fantasy. Non-fiction. Anything that has a lot of violence, blood and gore, but still write about love and psychology. The main characters of my stories either have a very emotional side or a very humorous side to them. The non-fiction part, I like to write what I have inside my head, what I think about on a daily basis.

What is the best or worst piece of writing advice you've ever been given?

I can't really say, the only advice I have ever really been given is to "be yourself." Which is hard at the moment because I can't really say who I am, or who I think I am.

When participating in small group discussions, do you more often listen or wait to speak?

In small groups of 2-3 I speak up, in bigger than that I listen until I am either called upon or something actually grabs my attention.


My name is Jason VandeMaele. I love to write however I am having trouble finding my motive. I am not much of sci-fi writer but I do enjoy to write fantasy. I love learning and playing video games but I am desperately trying to make my writing work.
