To the Point -- A Quick Chat with William D. Prystauk

William Prystauk is a man who gets to the point quickly, as you'll see below. So let's just honor that and jump right in.

Tell us a bit about your latest work.

Horror fantasy with a female lead.

What are the themes and subjects you tend to revisit in your work?

Bisexuality and BDSM - and dramatic horror. 

What would be your dream project?

One that I'm paid for in advance with free creative reign. 

If you have any former project to do over to make it better, which one would it be, and what would you do?

Make any of my short stories stronger. I've only written one that "worked" and it will be published soon. The others are missing something I can't seem to find.

What inspires you to write?

All of my ideas. I'm blessed to have so many, but having enough time to complete them is always the driving factor.

What writers have influenced your style and technique?

Henry Miller, Muriel Spark, Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Marquez and Burroughs.

Where would you rank writing on the "Is it an art or it is a science continuum?" Why?
Mostly art. Science comes into play with syntax.

Any other upcoming projects you would like to plug?

Working on a couple of feature length script ideas besides the novel. Again, there just never seems to be enough time in the day.
