I'm feeling a wee bit nosy tonight and I'm wondering who do you consider to be your biggest literary influences?

Mine: Larry McMurtry, Dorothy Allison, Flannery O'Connor, Toni Morrison, Larry Watson, Cormac McCarthy, Katherine Webb, and Judy Blume.

I can't say I write like any famous author... I think my style is a bit underdeveloped right now as well. I'm working on my tenses and plot holes right now, never mind the style. :XD:

Neil Gaiman, Hunter Thompson, and Anthony Burgess with a hint of Margaret Atwood. All over the map I guess.

Hmm...my influential writers are:

Brian Jacques
Garth Nix
Tamora Pierce

and a hint of Lemony Snicket

My inspiration changes from time to time, but usually it's in the form of song or artwork, and when all else fails I look to various mythologies.

Classical mythology can be a great source from which to mine a cool story idea or two. :)

Especially the lesser-known mythologies.

In essence, things that happen to me and somewhat make an impact on my life, or something that I learn of that has the same magnitude are the primary inspirations.

I sometimes let my imagination run how the plot flows.
