At what age did you start writing?
I was 4 xD
What inspires you to start writing?
Sad music, films, weird random stuff I see as I'm walking along... (and all the thoughts in my head are very inspiring xD)
How do you beat writer’s block?
Beat it?.. It can be beaten...? When I get writers block, I tend to get really angry at myself and then soon after, it goes away xD
Do you consider writing to be a serious career choice?
Yes, I'd like that. However, I'm not sure I'm good enough for that career:/
What advice would you give to a first-time writer?
Even if an idea seems crazy and odd, test it out and SEE if others like it! After all, the craziest of ideas are the most unique and therefore most likely to catch a publishers eye ;)
What’s your advice for the next ambassadors after you?
Act like a role model to other movellians. Be the one that stops the drama, not starts it.
What’s your motivation to be ambassador?
I guess it started when I started doing mass-ccs of movellas and people were like 'woah' when they saw the CC... and once I'd been a member of Movellas for a while, I saw that people were asking me to read their work, asking me for advice, because they trusted me to do so. I reported Movellas without commenting on them, as to not start drama, and welcomed new users to the site. Then I just decided I was ready to be an ambassador and BOOM, I was accepted xD
what's the most embarrassing moment of your life so far?
...I cry at the most embarrassing so I won't say it... I get embarrassed over everything I do and overthink everything I do so, honestly, there are so many embarrassing moments that I can't really say. Sorry.
What's gotten you into writing?
Thinking 'WOAH I HAVE THIS CRAZY IDEA' and then crying because I couldn't write a film of it, so instead deciding to scribble it down xD
What's your favorite genre of books and films?
what's your favorite film?
...-_- You did not just ask me that. I love loads of films. I'm also a very indecisive person.
What got you into reading?
I've always been into reading. I guess it was those audiotapes my mum used to play me when I was too young to read. They made me smile, so I started reading.
What age did you start reading?
Like nursery age so like 2/3 I guess... xD
Favourite Band, singer?
-_- I have too many.
What music inspires you?
Can you give the new movellians or old movellians some advice?
Have fun - just as long as your impression of fun isn't make others having a not-so-nice time - and have confidence in your writing! You're all epic writers. If no one else believes in you, then at least believe in yourself (unless your story glorifies things that should not be glorified...) Everyone can write - it's just a matter of patience, belief and listening to CC.
Do you have some advice for people who want to apply as ambassador?
If you 'want' to apply then DO apply. Don't think, 'oh no I'll be a bad ambassador' because that could stop the most awesome ambassador from becoming one :/ Also, you should prove yourself by being active, friendly and supportive.
What's your favourite quote?
'Imagination is more important than knowledge' - Albert Einstein.
Advice for bullied, who gives up fighting to be happy?
Firstly, you are awesome. Remember that. Let them think you don't care, even if you do. Because once they start thinking that then maybe you might start not actually caring.
Best childhood memory?
I don't really have one... The only happy ones I have make me sad atm so idk... I loved year one though; that was an awesome year at school, and in general xD
