So yesterday on the November 14th 2017 Instagram reached 100k reads. 100K!!!!!! THATS CRAAAAAAAAAZY! I just want to say a huge thank you to you all for taking precious time out of your lives to read my fic on Harry Styles on my small little corner or the humongous internet. You have no idea how much that means to me at all. About ten months ago I was in a really dark place and had nobody to turn to so I was thinking what could I do? How could I make myself happy or feel better about myself and also not feel alone? I saw others writing stories like mine and some completely different that were long and addictive and my love for reading a writing wasn't going anywhere so I thought 'why don't I start writing something that will make me happy? I don't care if it gets 2 reads in the world or 1 million. Writing and reading makes me happy and I won't feel as alone' So I planned the characters personality and a tiny bit of the story for months then on August 30th I published the first part and I wouldn't change it. Here we are a few moths later on November 15th (as I'm typing it up) about to let you guys get to know me a little better so, I am going to give you a few basic facts about me before I answer your guys' questions!
So, hello my name to you guys is just R because I don't want to give my full name away just yet. Not yet, but soon. I am fourteen years old being born on November 3rd 2003 and I am from a small town in the middle of England. My favourite school subjects are English, Media and History and the book I am currently reading and would recommend is called 'Eat Love Pray' please go out a read it IT'S AMAZING!!!!!!
Okay so my first question from you guys is from @cheve51603 and it is 'what is your favourite song from Flicker?'
Lovely question love, although the whole album is ABSOLOUTLY WONDERFUL and all the songs are amaZING, I think I have to go with the song 'flicker' because it's so beautiful and heartwarming and makes me want to cry every time I listen to it. Wei I know but it's just one of those song where you listen to it and you end up crying. Plus when the album was released at the time I had just lost a friend (who was a boy) who I liked but it turned out he didn't view me as a friend and was using me for homework answers that whole time and I was so sad and I related to a couple of the lyrics like 'when you feel your loves been taken' or the chorus in general and the lyrics 'never knowing what you're thinking' but most importantly the bridge of the song 'and I want this to pass//And I hope this won't last//last to long' those lyrics stuck out to me. But now I have moved on from him and have my eye on someone else...
The next question is a fantastic question asked from @littleblkdress and it is 'did you plan that Melissa was going to be a traitor from the beginning or it came up to you in the middle of writing? That was a grand plot twist.'
first of all thank you for complementing the plot twist I really appreciate it. To answer the question sweetie it's a little bit of both. I always knew I wanted Katie and Melissa to have a HUGE fallout but I didn't think it would be to he extent that it was. At first it was just going to be Kendall and Harrys old management who planned the car crash but my fic was lacking drama and I felt like people were getting bored so I thought it out and was changing my mind constantly to the point where I just wrote that Melissa was apart of the plan and published it, that way their was no turning back. All I'm going to say though is that wasn't the last of Melissa you're going to see...
My next question is from the lovely @skylar_olivia_allen and it is 'what is your favourite song from Harry Styles?'
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH HOW DO I CHOOSE!?! It really depends on my mood to be completely honest. I love them all! When I'm happy or in a decent mood I typically go for more upbeat song like 'kiwi' or 'Only Angel' or 'Woman' but if I'm in a sad or not the best mood I listen to 'Meet Me In The Hallway' or 'From The Dining Table'. At the moment it is either 'Kiwi', 'Only Angel' or 'Woman' but I LOVE THEM ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL! Thanks for your wonderful question though hun!
Another question from the same person is 'will you make a second question for Instagram?'
Honestly I don't know. I want to but I don't know how. I was thinking of not doing a sequel not like an Instagram layout but instead writing chapters of this book but in more detail if you know what I mean. From the moment Katie's first song is to whatever the ending of Instagram is going to be. What do you guys think? let me know if you like the idea! but this isn't ending yet. Oh no, it's only just beginning...
My next question is from my wonderful friend Alex aka @princesslarryniam and it is 'where did you get inspiration for this fic?'
Lovely question gorgeous! I get inspirations in many ways all very different. From Instagram books similar to my own (check out the reading list for my favourite Instagram books) too how my emotions and feelings are at that moment of time I am writing too the smallest things like a photo or even a song lyric. Remember this, Inspiration can come from many ways, once you've found your muse for it keep it and never let I go. It will take you far and to wherever you want to go. With inspiration you have the world in your hands and can conquer it with whatever you do in life. It allows you to be as creative as you want to be but most importantly it allows you to be who YOU want to be.
My final question is from @SNander14 and it is 'what made you want to make a Harlena fic? (I mean Selena as the main girl) I've always wondered why people ship him and Selena. As far as I know the only interaction they've had was at the awards where they handed Selena the award'
Amazing question! Obviously the only thing Selena has to do with my fic is the appearance of Katie and a few of Selena's songs. Selena Gomez is one of my female idols (along side Taylor Swift) she is such a strong, beautiful and caring woman who deserves the world and more. She has and still is going through so much and has so many talents which is why I chose her to be Katie and which is why she's one of my idols. Obviously now Selena' songs hasn't got as much involvement in katie' second album. Instead Katie's second album is going to be Reputation by Taylor swift with Bad Liar and Fetish on it as well so uh yeah hoped that answered your question as well as I hope it did!
Now for the announcement! My second Harry Styles FanFic is coming out two days after Christmas which is December 27th! It's called 'Polar Opposites' and is about a kind loving but broken trainee English teacher called Valerie and Cold mean but broken CEO called Harry Styles. I honestly cannot wait for you guys to read it and hopefully a few of you who read this one will also read Polar Opposites! But with that comes some changes. I'm going to finally have an upload schedule once that's out and (hopefully) I will stick to it. I will upload a chapter to Instagram everyday but Wednesday and Thursday and upload a chapter of Polar opposites every Thursday. Wednesday can be my day off where I can relax and spend extra time on school homework! I hope you guys are as excited as I am!
And that's where sadly this post comes to an end :(((((((((((((((((((((((((((((
Thank you ALL so much for 100k reads and here's to hopefully to many more in the future.
Sending all my love, hugs and kisses to you. Enjoy the rest of your morning, afternoon, evening or night and I will see you next time! BYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
