ME: Why did you choose your pen name as Darklily???
Darklily:I chose darklily because one
of my characters is a poet/writer, but he's a guy, so Darklily
is his sister and because her personality fits me very
well.Also I tend to try to write darker stories, so I wanted a
name that fit that.
ME: Who inspired you to write at such a young age???
Darklily:As far as what writers inspired me to write when I was young, I would say C.S. Lewis and Brain Jaques, while as for people in my own life, it was my family and my best friend, as well as my teachers. They always told me that I should persue writing, so I did.
ME: Do you remember what your first poem was about???
Darklily:My first poem, as far as I remember was a haiku about squirrels. I don't know why it was aboutsquirrels, I just felt like writing a haiku about trees, so I made it about squirrels.
ME: If you get a magic cap, what will you wish for??
Darklily:I would probably wish for
the Earth to be heathly forever. For me, it's sad to think that
one day it could dangerous to breathe the air and to drink
water, which in some places is true right now.
ME: What are the three things you can't live without???
Darklily:I definitely cannot live without writing, my friends, and my family.
ME: Do you have a pet???if yes what is the craziest thing your pet has done so far???
Darklily:Yes, I do have a pet, a orange tabby cat named Chica. The craziest thing she ever did was probably licking fire. We had a candle lit and she sat there staring at the flame, then she licked it. She has never gone near a candle since.
ME: Which song or singer do you listen to the most when your writing or drawing???
Darklily:I would have to say
Evanescence, their music is just so inspiring and beautiful,
especially their album Fallen.
ME: How is your journey in Booksie so far???
Darklily:It's going good so far, I
think I'm finally getting the hang of things. I had some
problems when I started, like adding pages to my novels and
responding to comments, but I figured it out.
ME: If I gifted you one of the miniatures of 7 wonders of the world,which one would you like???
Darklily:Hmm, I would probably choose
theColosseum, because there was so much history there and
because Ancient Rome is one of my favourite things to
ME: If you had a pet dragon ,what would you name it???
Darklily:I would name itCaedmon,
Celtic meaning "wise warrior", if it's a male, andKyna, another
Celtic name meaning "wise", if it's female. I would choose
these names because when I think of dragons, I see them as wise
and beautiful, but alsofiercecreatues.
ME: What is that one thing that you don't want to change about yourself??
Darklily:I don't ever want to loose myabilityto write, it would be like the end of the world to me. Writing is like breathing to me, I need to do it to survive, or at least to stay sane.
