Hmmm. Two years ago I began writing in the summer...it didn't last. I spent every second with either friends or in some sport so I haven't written since then, but I love to write. I've never really been much of a reading type; not that I don't like reading, but that I don't know what to read. I draw my inspiration from things I read, shows I watch, and just about everything else that exists. However, I want to get back into writing seeing how my gf is going away for college next month... Anyway, I think that in order for me to improve my own writing I should get into reading a lot more than I have and since I don't know the first thing to look for I was wondering if anyone could offer suggestions? I like fantasy, but not something that every character is a different kind of creature. I like it to be somewhat realistic but more out there than possible. I guess I'm looking for something that's basically a cross between anime (for the unique and inspiring magic/techniques) and something like the Final Fantasy games. I prefer action/adventure types.
