Why do you like writing?
: I like writing because it can be an escape from reality, and it also allows people into my mind, at least for a brief moment. I usually have a little bit of me in every story I write, but even my good friends can't guess what's real and what's my imagination.
When did you start writing and why?
: I started writing as a hobby and pastime when I discovered fanfictions. I got hooked on Harry Potter fanfiction, and started writing my own, then moved on to original stories. I started writing mostly because I love reading, and I want to have others enjoy what I write.
How long have you been writing?
: I have been writing almost as long as I have been reading, and I learned how to read at about 2 1/2 years old, but I first found out I had real talent for it in the second grade, when I wrote a story from the perspective of a shoe for T.A.G.
What is the best book you have ever read?
: Ah... Overall, I would say To Kill A Mockingbird. Oh my gosh, I LOVE that book, it is FABULOUS!
Who is your favorite author?
: Poppy Z. Brite!! She wrote two novels, Lost Souls and Drawing Blood, and also has a short story compilation. I own all three! ^_^
What is the best story you have ever written?
: That's a toughie. It depends. I write a lot, so I honestly can't say. Currently, I say Painletting is the best, but that's only because that's the one I'm working on right now. Once the novelty wears off, I'll have a different answer.
What is some advice you would give new writers?
: DO NOT DESTROY YOUR WORK!!!! No writing is bad. There is always something to learn from it, always something to build upon. I have an entire drawer filled with rough drafts and random ideas, and it's fun to look back and see how far I have come.
