The Movellas Interview Diary

I took this off and I'm putting it back up again (Nov, 2015). Enjoy! - Here you will find interviews with some of the most talented on Movellas. They will tell you about their likes, dislikes, favourite authors/books, weird talents, goals, ambitions, celebrity crushes and much more. Oh and they will also shed some light on the much debated and controversial question slash topic or whatever you wanna call it, that has been discussed since the dawn of man: is it okay to turn your underwear inside out so it can last a little longer... okay, maybe not that last one...


12. Skylar Black




Name: Skylar

Age: 18

Your best piece of work on Movellas: My best piece would probably be Fiery Girl, a story about a girl trying to learn who she is and discovers a deadly secret in the process. I loved writing it and quite a lot of people loved reading it too. My most recently best piece would be its sequel Daughter of Fire. 

Likes: Reading, writing, animals, NCIS, Sleepy Hollow,  Charmed, Marks and Spencer cookies, Youtubers Shane Dawson and Destery and most recent is the Desolation of Smaug. 

Dislikes: Exams, rude and mean girls and those who constantly brag about their weekend or moan. 
Favourite singers/bands: Breaking Benjamin, Shout London, I Divide, My Chemical Romance, Three Days Grace, The Cab and many more. 

Favourite Authors: James Dashner, Tera Lynn Childs, Michael Crichton and Janet Evanovich
Books you recommend: Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs, Legend by Marie Lu and The Maze Runner series. For older readers who are sixteen Stephanie Plum series. 

What makes you stop reading a book: If nothing happens in the middle or if the main character complains too much. The main character being too dependent on her love will make me close the book immediately. 

What makes you read a book more than once: The main character and the themes of the story especially supernatural elements. If the plot has jokes that make me laugh each time. Many of my books have dog ears as I have read them many times.

Do you have a weird talent: None that I know of. 

Celebrity Crush: Destery from the YouTube channel Capndesdes as he is the type of boy I prefer.




Hi, how are you doing today?

Good. Looking towards to summer. 

When did you start writing and what made you want to write?

Probably when I was nine. I wrote my first supernatural story and printed it off. I was so proud but now I cringe when I read it. I write because I have always had a big imagination and I want to express it through my writing. I love creating new worlds. 

What made you want to join Movellas?

I had entered a writing competition and didn't place. But I want people to see my writing and see what people thought of it. After a while of searching I finally found this website. I had a look at some comments and seeing how nice everyone was. I decided to join. 

Have you had writers block? If so, how do you deal with it?

I do sometimes. It is very annoying when I have the start and end of the story but not the middle. I usually listen to music or watch a film and the inspiration begins to flow again. 

What do you think is the difference between a good story and a great one?

A good story is one where I like the characters but I wouldn't read again. A great story is when I love the characters and easily picture the world that the characters live. After finishing the story I want the author to continue or I come up with my own continuation. 

Choose any one of the stories you've written or read on here... once you've done that, can you list a few actors/actresses who would play the characters if it was to be turned into a movie?

Fiery Girl turned into a movie would be epic! For the main character Dawn would be Michelle Trachtenberg. I know sheis 28 but she has that youthful appearance and could easily play a teenager. Ashley Greene as Jenna/Lucifer.  Meghan Ory as Helena. Michael Weatherly as Angelo. Julian McMahon would play Core the Demon King. 

What do you think is the best thing about writing?

Creating new worlds. Also deciding what personality you want the characters to have. Whether they are good or evil. 

If you were to go to an isolated desert island for 9 months and could only take three and a half things – what would would you take?

My IPad with wifi, a water bottle and a giant bag of popcorn.

What piece of advice would you give to aspiring authors around the world?

If you love writing then don't let others stop you. Keep writing as it will improve over time. 




Candy or Chocolate?

Chocolate definitely.

Cats or Dogs?

Cats actually scare me as I have no idea what to do around them. So dogs.

Rain or Snow?

Snow as I love having snowball fights. 

Rich or Poor?

Rich only because then I could go Universal Studios in Florida and to see the Everglades. 

Coffee or tea?

Neither I'm a hot chocolate girl. 

Sunshine or Rain?

Rain especially when I have to stay in.
