Extra, Extra: Interview with the Authors
Q1: Do you love writing?
tuNGaw-GiRL says: Well, I love to write. Definitely!
Q2: Why do you write?
tuNGaw-GiRL says: Before, the reason why I write is because I'm so EMO back then. LOL. I think that was in high school. Not exactly a pretty story, is it. Then again, looking back, I guess the main reason why I write is because I want to express myself through writing. I'm not exactly outspoken; used to keep everything inside. The only thing that keeps me from going insane before was writing. And I think that still apply nowadays., Only I'm not EMO now. LOL.
Q3: What is the history of your pseudonym?
tuNGaw-GiRL says: I decided to make tungaw_girl as my pseudonym because the pseudonym of my favorite artist in Questor is 'Tungaw'. I thought it sounds cool despite its true meaning. I improvised it and made it tungaw_girl, since I'm a girl.
Q4: What can you say about your first entry in FFnet?
tuNGaw-GiRL says: My first entry? It was 'Here Comes the Dead' for the HOTD fandom and honestly, I'm really satisfied with it. It was challenging, considering the kind of anime HOTD is. But the moment I posted it, it felt good. It was a great feeling of accomplishment. Truly, it is.
Q5: How do you fight writer's block?
tuNGaw-GiRL says: I'd stop writing for the meantime. I don't think something good will come up if you push yourself so hard to write even if you aren't in the proper frame of mind to actually write. Then, I'd just find something that could make me smile or do something that could entirely make me feel good. Like, sleep, for example. Or eat, or watch an anime series. Then, I'll think over petty things, deliberate on it in a deeper sense and that's when I find the inspiration to write again. You'll know what comes next. _
Q6: What are the things that gives you the inspiration to write?
tuNGaw-GiRL says: Mine would be, well, ANIME. LOL. That, and those creepy sense of logic that really makes you think so hard and so deep. I love to write complicated things; those that makes you think of its plain meaning on first read then later makes you realize that it actually pertains to something else. Yes, I'm actually complicated.-laughs-
Q7: How do you feel when readers compliment you about your teamwork with tuNGaw-GiRL/ JasMyr?
tuNGaw-GiRL says: Definitely honored! It is my first time to join in collaborations and honestly, I'm a bit anxious. I'm not exactly an expert in writing and I know that there are people who excels more in it. I consider Jasmine as one of them. When I read their compliments about our teamwork, I was overwhelmed and very proud. She is a great partner.,
Q8: Where do you get your ideas for a story?
tuNGaw-GiRL says: I get them from experiences. Not necessarily my experiences but could also be from people who are close to me. Also from the books I read.,
Q9: How does it feel not getting any reviews?
tuNGaw-GiRL says: -shrugs- Disappointing? -laughs- Disappointing in the sense that, it makes me doubt the quality of my entries. But not to the point that I actually brood over it. I understand that we cannot please everybody with our works. We have our own preferences, after all.,
Q10: What can you say about flamers out there?
tuNGaw-GiRL says: Flamers, huh? Er...people who doesn't have anything better to do? People who seeks attention? People who are envious? You pick.,
Q11: How did you discover FFnet?
tuNGaw-GiRL says: Now this is one question I really find hard to answer (since I can't remember now how, indeed, did I discover FFnet). One thing is for sure, though. I'm really fond reading fanfictions even before. It could be that I was browsing for a good fanfic to read and came across the site, bookmarked it, made an account and...viola! FFnet member!_
Q12: Would you pursue writing?
tuNGaw-GiRL says: By 'pursue' you mean actually make it a career? Well, not really, since I already have my career (being a teacher, that is). But expect me to still continue writing, even if it takes me a couple of months or even years to finish one. -laughs-
Q13: A question from Iris Petals; how do you guys feel working together?
tuNGaw-GiRL says: Enjoyable and very inspirational. Working with Jas-chan is truly very fun. Oh and also very insightful. I don't think I could ever work with other collabs as good as I do with Jas-chan.,
Q14: Another from Iris Petals; how come you guys found each other?
tuNGaw-GiRL says: What was that again that brought us together? A post about a 'banana'? And our being both 'Bisdak'. LOL. Is this such a good answer, Jas-chan? -laughs-
