RibbonOfRain123. All I can say is wow. I’ve only read one of her stories, Pink Cigarettes, but it is awesome! At first, I didn’t think the plot for her story would work, but it did AND IT’S AMAZING! The whole concept of the story is kind of wrong, but that is what makes it work. There is no story like it/ I mean, how many other people would think of such a unique story…that I am currently waiting to be updated, wink wink.
I hope you all love this story as much as I do!
If you haven’t read this, or any of her others you should. You don’t know what you’re missing out on.

Q. How do you come up with the plot for a story? Do you plan or make it up as you go along?
A. Pink Cigarettes just came to me. I think that part of it was because I like to write about people who are misunderstood, which is how a lot of girls feel. When you think of a Barbie Doll, or even when you played with them as a child, one would often think of perfection. Beautiful, rich, happy. But just like you can't judge a book by its cover, you can't judge a person based on their looks. Prostitution was a tricky subject to write about but I didn't focus much on the part that everyone thinks about when they hear the word "prostitute". I focused on the person. I had the idea planned out but I just sort of went with whatever I had written before. It's more fun that way.
Q. How do you decide on a story name?
A. Smoking is a bad habit. The character in my story has a lot of bad habits. Also, I saw a picture of pink cigarettes and I thought they were cute. Barbie’s are beautiful, pink is beautiful. Smoking and prostitution are bad. I don't know, sort of a metaphor? I would never smoke though!
Q. How many drafts of a chapter do you write before posting?
A. It depends on how important the chapter is to me. Sometimes I'll keep a draft and add to it throughout the entire week. Sometimes I'll write something and then decide that it's awful so I'll delete it and start again. But other times, I'll start and finish a chapter within an hour. It depends on how into the chapter I am, too.
Q. Do you base your characters on friends, celebrities or just make them up?
A. I think that it would be hard to create a character without someone in mind. I mean, my characters have never been based off of anyone specific, not one person. Sometimes they are a mixture of people. And they always have a bit of myself in them; that's hard to escape!
Q. Is your story 'Pink Cigarettes' going to have a happy ending?
A. I don't want to give anything away because I'm almost finished, but I think so! I love a good happy ending. Plus, Pink Cigarettes has been sooooo messed up that I'm thinking it needs a good, happy ending.
Q. If you could write a joint book with any author from Wattpad who would it be?
A. Hmm... I haven't thought about this! That would be pretty fun to do. Maybe racingheart? She's a really good author and I've taken the time to read a lot of her stuff, even when I'm busy! Are their any male authors here on Wattpad? Is it weird that I'm yet to come across one? It would be cool to get the male perspective because I suck at that. We could write one of those point of view stories, you know? I'm coming up with ideas!
If I could dedicate this interview to two people, I would. But since I can’t I’ll just write about my second dedication here! Blackrose54, she was the one who got me to read Pink Cigarettes, so without her, this interview wouldn’t exist. I love you! xxxxxx
I hope you all liked this and if you can think of any other Wattpadder’s you would like me to interview, please let me know
