About Marlowe, Sr

Well, I don't have much to say about myself. I have been writing since my school days (short poems, stories, etc) but never could make it big in the offline world due to competition. Then later on in my life I discovered the awesome world of self-publishing! It took me some time to get back in gear but hey it was worth it, and here I am!

What inspires me to write? Hmm, pretty hard to answer that one! Hmm, maybe the dream of becoming rich and famous one day! :-) Seriously, although I consider myself to be a jack of all trades, I feel that writing is the only thing I can do, and do well, without any restrictions! There is no limit here that I can't cross, no boss whose rules I have to play by!

I am a slow writer and more of a seat-of-the-pants type! One I am done with my book I'd regret about not having a proper plan or method etc., but when I am about to write my next book I am back to square one again. Creature of habit, you can say!

I pretty much want to slip into my characters, put myself in their shoes and think about 'Hey, if it were me instead of him or her, then what would I have done/said in a similar situation?' That apart, because my characters are pretty multi-dimensional, it takes quite a lot of research before I can sketch even ONE character fully!

Although I've been writing for a long time, I wouldn't have been here had it not been for a friend: she really convinced me (I don't think it was her intention but anyway) to join the world of self-publishing. She is a pretty good writer herself (actually I think a better writer than me) and doing well in the publishing world! I mentioned her name in my book Phantasy because it was she who helped me in the arduous task of formatting my book!

For wannabe writers, I have just one thing to tell them 'Write your heart out. Don't give a damn about what people would say about it!' I believe that the future of self-publishing is bright, although not everything about the self-publishing world is as rosy as it looks on the surface. There is quite a struggle and investment involved ahead, if you really want people to read your ebook, that is!

For me, the quality of a written work is as important as the plot, and this short story was a bit lacking in both aspects. It's poorly written (misuse of prepositions and other grammar errors, as well as redundancy), and there doesn't seem to be much point beyond elucidating a violent and phobic social mindset towards homosexuals.

I think that if the author put some effort and thought into this, she/he could create something interesting. As it currently stands, however, it falls rather flat.
