Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk.
It used to be a mess, but nowadays it's considerably tidy, but... full. To the brim. A Cintiq 13HD to my left, currently covered by a Peter Pan-themed Disney Store towel that I use to protect the screen from dust and the sun. It reads "Think of a Wonderful Thought." Then, in front of me, is my computer screen, which has an Ahsoka Tano Funko Pop standing at the base. To the left of the screen there's a collection of books, a Blue Yeti microphone, a desk lamp, and a small whiteboard I use to write down tasks I need to keep track of.
To the right of the screen is a Playstation 3 and a Wii U. I don't have the stand to prop up the Wii U properly, so it's squeezed in-between the Playstation and an upright board at the edge of my desk.

It might appear messy to some, but at least now all the tech on my desk serves a purpose. It used to be just a mess of random stuff and garbage, so it's an improvement on my part.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Probably my ambition. I have a strong belief of "If I can dream it, I can do it". I've spent a lot of time wondering who I am and what I want with my life, and although I am still not entirely sure, it's starting to become clearer to me every step of the way.
