What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I don't need to be inspired to get out of bed, it happens by itself. Sometimes I get up not-inspired (yet)... So what..

A large screen attached to a note book, cigarettes, on my right there are musical equipments etc, pretty messed up actually.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I'm still growing. But being in Turkey, looks a bit hard, but in fact, it helped me a lot. Here it is a total mixture of every culture. Like a mini, a little bit more eastern New York.
