How old were you when you started writing? When did you start?

I can't remember an exact age but I used to write all the time when I was younger. I think one of my first stories was about a dog. Then I wrote one for school about a girl with a split life and my first big one was (of course) about vampires, got to about 20,000 words with that then gave up.

What was your first story, could we read it?

I'm afraid not cos I have absolutely no idea where it is or what exactly it was.

What are you working on right now?

Nothing in particular, I'm in a few collabs but they're slow moving. I have a few solo projects but they're not really getting anywhere either.

Where do you get inspiration?

All around me! I people watch sometimes and imagine what goes on in their lives, music gives me a lot of inspiration and of course reading. Movies give me some inspiration although I usually just feel lazy after watching one. Mostly just the people around me and the random thoughts that pop into my head, especially late at night.

When is your favourite time to write?

Definitely at night when everyone else is asleep. Although if I've had a busy day it means that I don't get much writing done cos I'm tired as well.

Do you prefer collaborative works or Solo, do you like both?

I haven't completed a single solo to date, collaborative works are more interesting and they motivate you more I think. Plus you meet some great people through that. 

How did you find Protagonize, are you on any other popular writing sites (Booksie, smashwords, wattpad ect.)

I think I was on Facebook one day and I saw an ad for creative writing and it led me here. So thankful for that ad! I haven't joined any other creative writing sites cos I'm so used to this one and the people on here. 

Anything else that you would like to share about yourself or your writing?

I can get very lazy with my writing and fall into ruts where I don't post for ages. It's sad. :-(

The End
