@MargaretAtwood I entered the Hulu contest Handmaid's Tale. I have watched the Hulu televised series adapted from your novel by the same name. It is very heart stopping! 
          	  
          	  A few days after I had entered the contest in my city women dressed as Handmaids stormed the state congress building. I have joined up with them and wrote a second entry - a non fiction essay - with photographs of what happened. I wanted to send you a link. Thank you for your visionary novel. https://www.wattpad.com/story/109409129-my-tale-non-fiction-myhandmaidstale

@MargaretAtwood I'm still processing the first time my name and Margaret Atwood appeared next to each other. Oooo, boy, I don't know what to do with myself. I'd have to sit down if I wasn't already. What's the next step? Lay down? Get a tattoo?

Such a huge fan! I know you don’t respond on here but I can honestly say that doesn’t matter. Your work is really inspiring!
          
          Without it my love for writing may not have flourished and I wouldn’t have discovered my love for poetry. When all is said and done though, my passion for poetry is immense and it’s something that’s truly helped me during my darkest times and I fear that without it I don’t know what I’d have done.  So thank you so much!

Yuk baca ceritaku
          Ada NO! Pregnant With You.
          Tapi kali ini mau nyaranin MELIORA nih...
          
          Langsung lihat di workku ya
          
          Yuk baca cuplikan ceritanya yuk...
          
          Sebuah tarikan dirambut Liora membuat perempuan itu merintih kesakian. Ini bukan pertama kalinya pria itu memperlakukan dirinya kasar.
          
          Tapi dirinya belum terbiasa dengan sikap kasar pria tampan yang saat ini tengah menarik rambutnya. Namun jika dirinya mengelak rasa sakit itu akan semakin menyakitkan.
          
          "Dengar!!! Aku yang mengatur. Kau akan hamil atau tidak! Jika kau hamil, kau hanya harus menerimanya!!!" bentak pria itu di depan Liora.
          
          Air mata terus saja mengalir jika mendengar bentakan pria di depannya. Memang bukan sekali ini saja, namun dirinya hanya perempuan biasa yang takut akan kekerasan.
          
          "Dengar, Liora. Kau termasuk wanita yang beruntung masih aku biarkan hidup. Apalagi dengan sikap pembangkangmu! Aku tidak menyukai perempuan pembangkang"
          
          "Jadi dengarkan baik-baik, Meliora! Jangan pernah mengonsumsi pil sialan itu. Jika kau hamil itu karena aku mau! Kau tidak akan bisa mencegahnya. Mengerti!!!" teriak pria itu dan mendorong tubuh Liora ke lantai.
          
          Pria itu berjalan keluar dari kamarnya meninggalkan Liora dengan rambut yang acak-acakan. Air mata masih mengalir di pipi Liora.

Hello! I love your writing and was hoping I could ask you how writing as a career changed your relationship with literature? 
          An hour before my graduation my stepdad (a ghost writer) told me if I write as a career reading and writing will no longer be for enjoyment (this along with many other disheartening things about the topic but I was too shaken to devote them all to memory though they all still effected me). The entire reason I want to be a writer is because, supposedly, if you do what you love it doesn't feel like work. Going through the motions and carrying on in life already feels like exhausting work to me and there is very little I get joy from. Hearing my stepdad say that broke me for a long time. It's towards the end of my gap year (which might end up stretching the rest of my years) and I barely got myself together (well "together" as in I figured out why I found it difficult to leave bed, not as in fixing the reason) last week. It is really important to me that I discover how ones relationship with writing changes when it becomes their career. Thanks for taking the time to read this. ( :
