Username: Enya Sanders
Name: People know me as Enya, it'll be confusing if I say my real name now XD
At what age did you start writing?
Properly 13, not properly 8
What inspires you to start writing?
It sounds cliche, but my friends and family and all the situations that go on in the world!
How do you beat writer’s block?
I take breaks, I'll leave it until the next day and/or I'll write gobbledygook until I hit a lightbulb XD
Do you consider writing to be a serious career choice?
I'd love to be, but I think it'd be more realistic to just find a place in the publishing industry, so I'm aiming for that!
What advice would you give to a first-time writer?
Remember to read through and read through again, put your heart into your stories too :)
What’s your advice for the next ambassadors after you?
Don't cause arguments, don't be mean to others who don't write as well as you, just generally keep your opinions to yourself and create a positive atmosphere!
What’s your motivation to be ambassador?
When I first came to this site, I had the ideas but I didn't have the flair, and the people on this site helped me so much, so I want to do the same for other people because I know I appreciated it!
What's the most embarrassing moment of your life so far?
Nearly getting ran over by a car in front of my crush (road safety guys)
What's gotten you into writing?
The world, it's just given me ideas that I want to express myself
What's your favorite genre of books and films?
I don't have any favourite genres for either, if I like a book I'll like it regardless of genre haha
What's your favorite film?
The Rocky Horror Picture Show...or High School Musical
What got you into reading?
I had this great reading buddy in year two, who helped me to start reading, and then I just didn't look back haha
What age did you start reading?
Favourite Band, singer?
HIM, they're a Finnish rock band and they're great! And singer, man, Sharon from Within Temptation
El Capitan, Idlewild
What music inspires you?
Mostly HIM! The songs all differ between each album, and the different themes and moods help me feel different things. So if I'm writing a sad scene, I'll listen to a song called Gone With the Sin, as that's super sad
Can you give the new movellians or old movellians some advice?
Be nice! I've said this somewhere else here, but seriously, nobody likes someone who ignores people or takes their anger out on people
Do you have some advice for people who want to apply as ambassador?
I don't think you'll need to write the long letter I did, but just bullet point what you want to say beforehand and then expand on it in the letter
What's your favourite quote?
'You'll never find a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me'- C.S. Lewis. It's in my biography!
Advice for bullied, who gives up fighting to be happy?
I've never really been bullied, but 99% of the time the bullies are doing it out of either jealousy or because they've been told those things themselves, so you have to know it's not like there's anything wrong with you
Best childhood memory?
When I got my Sylvanian Families GRAND HOTEL it was the coolest thing ever
