There is one thing that I learned from a video interview of Ray Bradbury, that you should write with joy, and have fun while doing it, thus you can send the same feeling towards the reader. Here is a little bit about me : I am a 22 years Romanian student at the Faculty of Foreign Languages, in Bucharest. I study English and Chinese. Though I am a girl, my latin handwritting is indecipherable, but I write beautiful in Chinese. I like to read and write, and I would like to share my thoughts through writing; and I hope you will have fun reading my story.

Story: Project - The End of All Things


Each week authors will be given a new question to answer which will lend additional insight into their story and writing process. Do you have a question you'd like to see the authors answer? Tweet it to @aNextAuthor!

What is the best writing advice you've ever heard?
If you don't have inspiration in one day, don't force it. It is something beyond our control, and when it comes you will know.
When you start a new story do you prepare an outline in advance or do you just jump right in?
Why wait for something? I just get right on it. I write with as many descriptions as I can, so that my message can be clear.

Welcom to the contest. Your story is interesting. It certainly has one thinking about the consequences of their actions. There are a few mistakes; extra words or typos. If you read through again and submit another version they will still swap it out for you before the end of the week. Some good ideas in there. If you have the time please read my story 'Drift Away' and leavea a review to let me know if you liked it.
