Q. How do you come up with the plot for a story? Do you plan or make it up as you go along?
A. A bit of both, honestly. I usually get inspires by certain songs so I try and go with that for a while. Then after a while, when I’m really into the story, I make up small plots (on the go) to mix into the bigger plot (of that makes sense at all) :P
Q. How do you decide on a story name?
A. Like a title? Or a name for the character? Well, how do I come up with titles? Most of my titles are very close to the story, not much mystery behind them. I want to pick something that will get peoples attention and make them interested in what that story’s going to be about. For character names, I just google ‘Edgy names’ XD
Q. How many drafts of a chapter do you write before posting?
A. One. It takes me one draft. I take my time to write. Usually a couple of hours. So when I’m done with a chapter, I wouldn’t want to write it out again and again and again. So I just write the chapter down, read over it once and that’s that :P
Q. Do you base your characters on friends, celebrities or just make them up?
A. No, I don’t do that at all. No offence to my friends but they’re pretty boring and really wouldn’t make a great story. My story characters live in my head. Wow, I just made myself sound completely insane (which I probably am). But seriously, I make these little stories in my head of strong girls or girls with not-so-usual problems. And then I think about how their lives would be and their story would unfold. If I’m happy with the mini plot, I scribble it down and make it into a story :)
Q. What made you want to write in the first place?
A. I used to read a whole lot! Even as a child, I just loved reading and I really wanted to be the youngest writer ever. When I was about 6 years old, I started writing stories about sad giraffes and mean monkeys in the zoo. It was proper cute! Then I stopped writing for a while but got back into at the age of 13 when I needed an outlet because I had some s**t going on in my life. Writing has helped me through that :)
Q. What is your favourite genre to read or write?
A. My favourite genre to read would be Romance and Mystery and I guess that’s what I write as well :P I pretty much like a story that has my eyes glued to the screen! :)
