Interview with Irelyn

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Uhm, the first book I've ever read? In real life? For real? I don't remember... The first book I've read online was on Wattpad. It is called "Kidnapped" by _Ninja_Muffin_. It was an ok story, but it really needed help with grammar.
How do you approach cover design?
iPiccy. Always.
Fast, easy, free.
When I'm making a cover I have to think thoroughly about what the story is about. The cover overlay on every single detail has to look nice and pleasing to the eye (although I overlooked that on a few of my book covers)
The thing everyone should know is that you have to take time making a cover. Never let stress overtake you or your cover is going to look horrible.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Exo, Exo and... hm... let's see... Exo.
They ruined my life, it's a curse.
But for real-life books, I love 'The Selection' and 'The Hunger Games'
Describe your desk
Haha, nice one. I would love to have a desk, but most of my books are written at about three in the morning on my laptop while I'm in bed.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My mind is really, really active. I love being able to go crazy with new ideas.
What do your fans mean to you?
Well, if I had fans. But my fans in Wattpad? My world. I am extremely grateful for each and every one of them
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Um, actually, nothing. I am not a morning person. Especially since I've been diagnosed with PTSD and depression, life isn't as cool and fun as it used to be. I have to drag myself around each day.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Rainbow loom. Call me crazy, it's a great stress reliever. I also love spending my time with martial arts, horseback riding, basketball, taking walks, dancing, singing, and trolling around the internet.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Haha, guess what I'll be talking about. Wattpad time, again. My first book was about a Korean singing group, Exo. Called "The Day I met Exo" it's hovering over one thousand views right now. To you, that may be few reads, but to me it means the world that people read my stories.
When did you first start writing?
I started when I was about five. My first story I've ever written that was offline was "Why Is There A Feather On My Head?" Woe to long, complicated titles. It was about a duck that was born with a feather sticking straight up on it's head. He goes on a quest to find out how it got there.
