Brian William Waddell


Brian William Waddell is a writer who specializes in arguments. Whether he's making the arguments, or his characters are, they are always engaging and persuasive. When he's the one making the arguments it's usually just a policy decision that hangs in the balance and nobody dies. The same can't really be said for his characters.

Brian is also a poet. When he isn't writing novels, short stories, screenplays, or op-eds, he is usually throwing thoughts into freeform poems. His first book of poetry, Fractured Prose, is available pretty much anywhere books are sold, and his second book, Lines of Advance, is nearly ready.

Brian was born and raised in Fresno, California and currently calls New York City home.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I don't know if I remember the first story I wrote, but I do remember the first book I started to write and never finished. It was a book about a 16 year old boy who is killed in a car accident and is reborn with all his memories in a hospital across town. I was, no surprise, 16 when I started writing it. I think I got maybe 5 pages in. The idea of what consciousness is, or might be, has always been a part of my writing.
What is your writing process?
Generally for shorter works I have an idea, and I sit down and see what spews out of me. Then I adjust and edit it for the rest of my life. For anything longer than 15 pages I do a lot more planning. Character sheets, outline, synopsis, the whole Magilla.
