Interview with Apollo

Why Did You Start Writing?
Well, when I was in school, I was very quiet and shy. I also had a stuttering problem and other speech impediments, due to a lack of confidence. My only outlet was singing in the school choir. Soon, that singing, turned into song writing and poetry. I thought I would be the next Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds.

But as I further progressed in school, a career in music seemed to elude me, not to mention I discovered more adult pursuits, like women! I overcame a lot of my shyness, but still had a slight speech impediment. So, I still wrote at times.

As I got older, I became interested in erotica and transformation themed writing. As the internet grew, my interest in it grew exponentially. But, I soon discovered there was a void of the things I enjoyed reading. So, I decided to start writing my own pieces and sharing them. I'm super-critical of myself, so I can't seem to enjoy my pieces like an outsider would. But, I enjoy getting positive feedback from those who enjoy my work.
What is your writing process?
I just sit down and "throw up" all over my computer.

I find that I can sit and write a Social Commentary piece within 30 minutes non-stop. But, for my fiction, it takes a long, long time. The imagery and the storyline and piecing it all together takes me months. Mentally, I find it draining, but very satisfying when I finish them.

I made a rule a few years ago that I will only work on one piece at a time, because I would have 3 or 4 pieces all incomplete and never get done. But, with life's distractions, it seems that they're still taking a while. I'm working on pumping out more pieces on a more consistent basis.
