Today we’re joined by Trinity. Trinity is an awesome up and coming author who specializes in fantasy and science fiction. She currently has two books out: What I Have to Say to the World and I am the Snow (both available on Amazon). She has a wonderful enthusiasm for writing and has a very bright future ahead of her. My thanks to her for taking the time to participate in this interview.
Please, tell us about your art.
I am an author. I love writing about many different topics, especially scifi and fantasy. There are some stories I have published myself which are easy to find on Amazon. I also post stories on Wattpad (TrinityAR).
What inspires you?
The thing that inspires me the most is my overwhelming dislike of clichés. I try my best not to use a lot of them unless the plot calls for it. If not that, I would say something that inspires me is historical events and myths. Especially Native American stories, which are used quite a lot in my novels.
What got you interested in your field? Have you always wanted to be an artist?
This is pretty easy to answer. When I was in about preschool, my mom signed me up for this reading testing or something, which revealed that I had a pretty high reading level (at the time, it was about an eighth grade level). My mom also noticed I always made stories with the refrigerator magnets.
Do you have any kind of special or unique signature, symbol, or feature you include in your work that you’d be willing to reveal?
As mentioned before, I use a lot of Native American folktales. They help me develop more of the plot and provide necessary character development.
What advice would you give young aspiring artists?
Not every story needs romance. Most of the time, it’s unnecessary and boring. Also, if an idea comes to your mind, write it down immediately so you don’t forget later.
Where on the spectrum do you identify?
I am an asexual/demiromantic. Probably the only reason I’d ever have sex is to have children.
Have you encountered any kind of ace prejudice or ignorance in your field? If so, how do you handle it?
Well, as supportive as my parents are, they think my asexuality is something that needs fixing or something that they deny exists. It doesn’t matter to me. I know they love me and I am very happy being an ace. As far as other people go, I use sarcastic humor.
What’s the most common misconception about asexuality that you’ve encountered?
The most common misconception about asexuality is when people say “oh, so you’re a plant.” Like, pfft, no, I’m a starfish.
What advice would you give to any asexual individuals out there who might be struggling with their orientation?
Be proud of who you are. Don’t believe the crap that people tell you. Cause, you know, we got preferences, yo.
Finally, where can people find out more about your work?
Thank you, Trinity, for participating in this interview and this project. It’s very much appreciated.
