Questions

 

1. Tell us a bit about yourself and your writing.

I've been writing since I was quite young, and it was mostly badly written fanfiction and fantasy stories, but I only started writing poetry since I started college. Even then the poetry I wrote was speculative (fantasy and Greek myth).

I'm an introvert and have a tendency to keep thoughts and feelings bottled up, so when I got into a relationship two years ago and my boyfriend found out how I write poetry, he encouraged me to write about my emotions and thoughts to get it all out, and express myself. So, I did.  Masking it through metaphors, third person and weird imagery, of course. Haha. I eventually decided to join dA, and dare share my work.

2. How do you feel about dA as a literature community?

I was floored by the dA literature community, at first. I wasn't expecting it to be so big and so close knit. It's amazing! There are so many unique writing styles out there, and people explore in their writing, every subject imaginable – no matter how gritty or controversial or surreal. It’s inspiring. KaitForest and :Scarlettletters: never cease to amaze me.

3. What is your writing process like?

I don’t know if I’d call it a process. I just write, then try to make sense of the random sentences and words I’ve spewed all over the page.

4. Are there any authors that have influenced your work?

I was introduced to Carol Ann Duffy in college, so she influenced my stuff back then. I suppose dA authors, especially those on my watch list, influence my work now :)

5. Have you ever written a piece that was "difficult?" Whether because it wasn't ready to be written or something too personal to write about? How do you deal with writing something like that?

I rarely have this problem. The beauty of writing for me is, being able to write about emotional, personal and subjects I find difficult to talk about.

I get writers block, like any other author, but I can broach most matters in my writing and if I do find it difficult to write about, I mask the subject with metaphors.
