Teen Writers' Magazine

I can't thank movellas enough for the opportunities and inspiration I've had since joining the site! In 2014 I managed to win a place in an amazing writing Masterclass (and private interview) with the bestselling author of the 'Uglies' series- Scott Westerfeld- when he came to London on a 2-day tour... a massive, massive thank you to movellas for that truly inspirational experience <3 We asked him as many of your questions as we could, so now I'm excited to reveal all the advice we managed to squeeze from what was genuinely one of the most exciting days of my life. This magazine also contains a bunch of other things to do with writing, reading and movellas. Ever wanted access to all of Movellas an secrets, top tips and guidance in one place? I hope this helps :D *I'd also like to give a big thanks to my wonderfully supportive and friendly movellians that have helped with this: HeartTaunter, Raven711, Writer_Girl, Jade.P and so many more! :)


17. If You Could Write A Story Based On Your Life...

Uniqua Niques: If you could write a story based on your life, what would the title be and what would the main character (you) be like?

Scott's answer: Ah, I don’t know. I think… you’re asking me to describe myself as I would write myself, which isn’t necessarily me because not all characters are necessarily real people. The fictional character that I try to be is a kind of trouble maker, truth-teller. I’d say the things that are more or less true but most people don’t say or haven’t said in exactly that way before. In a way that’d make people think a little harder, to push buttons at the risk of p**sing people off. I’d be trying to say things in new ways or to up-end people’s views as much as possible. To rewire people is what I’d be trying to do. ‘Rewired’ would be my title.
