INTERVIEW OF Olga_GOA :)
1. Introduce yourself
2. When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
When I read Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James. I decided to create my own dark love story and start to show people my world of love.
3. How long does it take you to write a book?
First book I wrote 1 year. Another 6 months. It was not so easy start to write first book but soon I get used to my fantasies and wrote how I wanted ;)
4. What is your work schedule like when you're writing?
5. Have you participated in any contest? (Even outside wattpad) did you win in any?
Yes, I did. I was rewarded as NanoWrimo Winner 2015
On Wattpad I won The Best Mythology villain story contest in April 2016.
6. Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?
I get my imagination from my real life, my private experience; some ideas come from my wild big world of fantasy ;)
7. When did you write your first book and how old were you?
I started to write in 25 years old. My first book was about love of poor girl and rich man. I left it for awhile but hope to return to is soon when I finish "Fateful Italian Passion" series.
8. What do you like to do when you're not writing?
Listen music. It gives me so many ideas and romantic moments while I'm writing. It really helps me to move on and improve my skills as a writer. J
9. What does your family think of your writing?
My parents say I shouldn't give up if now it's really difficult. They advice me to believe in myself because writing's road never was so easy. All writers went through such hard time. It's trial for their nerves, their language and fantasy. I should teach people by my books do listen to their soul mate and own heart. My books are more than just romance. They teach you how to love and how be merciful to anyone.
10. What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?
Wow, such smart question. ;) I learnt to be patient. I'm not so patient person in my real life but books teach me to be so. They teach me how to correct expressing my emotions and become a positive person in a life.
11. How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
I have written only 3. Just edit some of them and write another. I hope people will like them all when I'd publish them. Which is my favourite book? So hard to say, I love all my books. Mostly of course I love the first book because I put so many emotions and memories which I experienced in the trip to Italy which I visited in 2011.
12. Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they?
As a writer I would advice to create unique original stories. I read so many books sometimes and see the same plot line. I don't like it at all because it seems as I read same book but written with another style. So guys, be inventive, be original and people will love your books more than others and read it fully. I'm sure of it. Of course all writers who lived before us in 19-20 century wrote a lot of romantic books and maybe we repeat their thoughts, but it doesn't mean we shouldn't write. To be great writer means to find own style of writing, express own emotions in new way and create new scenes of romance or fantasy, doesn't matter what genre you prefer.
13. Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say
Sometimes my readers are sleeping and sometimes awakening in reading. I think it depends on their life. We are all so busy, and sometimes we want just relax and don't do anything. But I'm glad that people find time to read my books and not only first 5 chapters but more. I'm happy to hear when they ask me to update as soon as possible. The best thing that readers made for me: they sent me pictures from their life which reminded them my characters or situations from my book. The best thing was when they asked me to write POV from my main characters. Its best reward and it means people want to read my book! I really thank them and appreciate their love. Thank you, guys.
14. What do you think makes a good story?
As I said before the good story means original plot. If a story doesn't have it I don't think people would interest in it. Of course a book has to be written in a hooked way and not boring. People will for asleep on boring books ;)
15. As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?
I wanted to be a pilot, veterinarian and ballerina. I always loved these professions because they remind me my passion about animals' life, the sky and art. Also I wanted to be a singer. I finished music school and love to sing and play on piano. But who knows maybe someday my dreams will come true: D
16. Who are your favorite writers in wattpad?
