What's been your biggest influence in making you a better writer?
I would have to say that my biggest influence has been Raymond E Feist and Piers Anthony. Two very amazing and very talented writers in and of themselves. I love reading anything that these two have written, and I love the economy of words that is part of their style (Unlike, say, the Wheel of Time series 0_o).
So that is what would be my answer. Well that, and my own brain. Stupid creativeness.
