Writing 101: The Creative Process

Whether you are writing a novel, poetry, an essay, or the menu for your restaurant, one of the biggest aspects of writing is immersing yourself into the creative process. Everyone’s process is unique and different than others. For instance, I like to either put on some tv or blast my spotify music  to get into the right head space. The first step in beginning your writing is to find whatever it is in life that inspires you, that gets your creative juices flowing, and delving head first into that pool of creativity. Lesson of the day to all you writers out there: find your inspiration, develop your personal creative process, and immerse yourself completely!

Who is Anthony Avina and Avina Vlogs?

Hello there, my name is Anthony Avina, and this is my personal blog. I used to use this blog for the magazine I write for as well, but I now have a separate account for that and will be using this blog as my own personal blog. In this blog, I will have a variety of posts, from videos, music, photos, and thoughts I enjoy, to my own personal photos and videos, to insight into my life, to my writing process and filming process, to whatever else catches my fancy. Before I begin, I thought I’d introduce the world to who I am.

My name is Anthony Avina. I am 24 years old, and was born and raised in Southern California. I lived in California until I was 13 years old, and then my family and I moved to North Carolina due to my dad getting another job. We spent 8 long years in NC, and although I have nothing against the state or the people within it, I am a California kind of guy, and NC just did not feel like home. In 2012, we moved back home, and have been living here since.

Here are a few facts about me, some obvious, some not. I am a big guy, both in height and weight. Although I’m losing weight for health reasons, I am not and will never be a super skinny guy, and I am proud to be a big guy, despite what some other people in the world may think about my size. I do not enjoy discussing politics or religion, because I think people should focus on the kind of person you are rather than what religion or political party you are associate with. I will just flat out say for this post that I am not religious. I am not an atheist either, but I do not believe in organized religion. I respect everyone’s right to believe whatever they want to believe, and I accept everyone for who they are. However, I do not care for anyone who hates, discriminates, or put down people who don’t believe what they do, so if you don’t care to associate with me because of that, I understand, and wish you well.

I am a huge fan of all forms of entertainment, from books, music, television, video games and movies and YouTube! I am not a huge fan of country music, reality tv, documentaries, but all other forms of entertainment I love. I don’t hate anyone who likes the things I dislike, I just personally don’t care for them. I am not a huge sports guy, but occasionally I’ll watch hockey or basketball. I am a huge horror/sci-fi/action genre fan of all forms of entertainment, and I confess that I am a big time hopeless romantic, and find myself drawn to love stories often.

I am a writer for an online publication, On Request Magazine. I write reviews, previews, and more for the magazine, covering music, television, movies, games, books, YouTube, conventions, concerts, and more! I’ve been writing for the magazine for over 5 years now, and I’ve loved every single moment of it.

I am a huge supporter for equal rights for all. I constantly bring attention to causes that I support, from the rights of anyone to love whomever they choose, to racial equality and gender equality. I also will probably speak about causes that I support, from raising awareness for mental health to other health related organizations.

The biggest part of me that I want to make known is that I am a writer. I’ve been publishing books online on Amazon Kindle for five years now, and I’ve recently begun publishing paperback books as well through Createspace. I write mainly novels, short stories, novellas, poetry and more in the horror/science fiction genre, intermixing my stories with romance and action often. I’m hoping to meet some people that will be interested in working together to delve into adapting my stories and scripts that I’ve written into videos online, as well as comic books and other forms of media.

I just wanted to introduce myself and showcase who I am as a person both personally and professionally. I will post often on here, and I hope you guys will come along with me as I post. I am also a YouTuber myself,, with a modest but growing audience right now. I will be posting my videos on this blog constantly, as well as photos and video from my social networking, and I might even put up excerpts, poetry, and more of my own personal writing. Thank you guys, and I look forward to speaking with you all. I hope you all have a great night, and I’ll see you in the next blog!

Anthony Avina
