Interviewing with Reila_pollie by DayDreamingNinja
When did you start writing?
19 November 2009
What do you find the hardest in writing?
Writer's block. When I'm stuck. That's when I go crazy!
How did you come across Wattpad?
A certain book from my school library two years ago. I finished reading book 1 and wanted to read book 2 so I went to search for it. That's when i found wattpad! Unfortunately, I was unable to continue reading book 2!
Do any of your stories have incidents based on you personal experiences?
Nope. Just purely fiction. It could happen anyone though! Some parts can be real in life though it doesn't happen to me! There are moments in the story where it happened to some of us or wishing it happened to all of us :') . Since the genre is romance, I always find it interesting how two people in a relationship were able to overcome many obstacles that comes in their way. I try to make my stories likable but my writing needs to be improve as I have only learnt how to speak and write in english for only six years!
Would see writing as a pastime or as something you would do as a career?
Well, writing is more of a hobby of mine. Just like how I love listening to music. I wish I could do it as a career but I feel that my writing isn't enough to satisfy people once it is published, like it won't sell well so.. like I said, I still need to improve! So that I can write like a real writer..
Which of your characters is your favourite?
My favourite is definitely Leah Valley and Stephen Tylline in It's A Love/Hate Thing, Honey. I don't want to show favourism so I would say, all of the characters in my stories! They are great characters. If they were real people, I would say to them that they did a good job playing their role!
Do you ever get negative feedback? How do you deal with them?
I did get negative feedbacks the first few months I become a writer in wattpad. When they say that I have spelling or grammar mistakes, I try to fix it. But when they say that they didn't like the way the story turns out to be and wants me to write the next chapter of what they want to happen, I wouldn't do that. There's always a reason why there's a cliffhanger. There's always a reason why I wrote it. If I write what they want the next chapter to happen, it would spoil the whole story! I write with a lot of twist that makes people want to read it more.
Are there times when you just want to give up?
YEAH! There are times when I don't feel like writing because of writer's block. There were a lot of update delays because of school. School is my first priority so I want my fans to understand that. Because of their support I never gave up. I'm really grateful for my fans because they never gave up on me.
Are you a bad-ass chick or and goody-two shoes?
A little bit of both! I was always late for my lessons and sometimes skip them way before! But, right now, I'm not. I go to my lessons on time. I haven't had a single detention since I was 13! because of late homework. I'm not the rebellious type so you could say that I'm a little bit of both. When I was a kid, I was Ms Goody-two shoes.. always out of trouble and no criminal record whatsoever! Hahahah
What do you think of your own writing?
To be honest? I don't know. I consider myself as a girl who's always in the middle of everything. My test scores' never high not lower. I was born in the middle of the year, June and the almost the middle of the month, 20th. Basically the middle of everything! So, I would say that my writing isn't professional but its not an amateur either!
Do you have any new novels coming up?
Yeaaapp! A lot! Look forward to it!
How do you come up with your story ideas?
I daydream a lot. There's magazines, music, TV and so on. All of my stories are fiction, as I mentioned before!All of the non-existent stories are stuck in my head and I cant wait to take them out!
What advice would you give to aspiring writers?
There are threefold.. One - New ideas must be written down so that you dont get writer's block. Two - Don't give up. Lastly, Three - Write only for yourself... not for people! Write whatever makes you happy. Writing exist only for us to vent all of our emotion that's been building inside! But try not to take it too far as it could really make things go wrong~!!
What is the one thing you would do before you die?
Oooh, that's tough. Umm.. Doing things without regrets, I guess. Life is too short, after all.
Could you tell me some funny experiences you have had?
I remember in drama class when I was about 12/13 years old, I ran across the room really fast when everyone was clearing the floor. I slipped and fell as I slid across the floor! Everyone was laughing and so did I! It was embarassing but it made everyone laugh!
Do you plan out your stories or just make the plot up as you go?
I always make up the plot as I go but sometimes I write my ideas down to help me plan out a new chapter.
Did you ever think that you would become such a popular author?
NO! Definitely not! I never thought there would be a lot of people suppoerting me for my stories! I feel so lucky to have them, not only as my fans but as my friends!
