Hello, lovelies! Welcome to Interview FoxSeat with guest author Vatasescu Ana-Irina
She enjoys reading and writing, and she also loves psychology and philosophy. She currently published her first book, “Temple of my heart”. It’s a poetry book, a representation of a beautiful love story. She found her passion for writing during high school, when one of her teachers made her participate in a writing conquest, telling her “I know you can do it, because I know you. You just have to believe in yourself. Give it a try”. She gave it a try, and she won the second prize. She kept writing and kept participating in conquests, and kept winning prizes. That was a lesson for her. “You can do anything you set your mind to, as long as you believe in yourself and your dream. So believe in yourself, believe in your dream, and work hard for it, you will get there!” – that’s what keeps her going
Book Sample: “Temple of my heart”
“I heard your voice as I was crying serenades on my knees
It assuaged my heart, giving me shivers all down my spine
And silencing the lugubrious sound of lovelorn rhapsody from my ears.
It felt surreal as your ethereal beauty was melting my glacial heart…
Like an ice cube forgotten on the sun’s eyelid… what a torture!
I felt paralyzed as your eyes were absorbing me into their greatest depths
Magnifying my emotions while our lips were sealing into an immortal kiss.
Oh, sweet scent of my eternal love! ”
Why do you write? I write because it’s something that I absolutely love to do. I can’t imagine myself doing something else, this is my calling. I have so many things to share with my readers!
When did you decided to become a writer? At the end of highschool I decided that this is what I want to do, after winning a lot of conquests.
How long does it usually take you to complete a book? Well, I can’t say for sure, I think maximum one year. I am a perfectionist when it comes to my writing, I don’t like to rush things.
Do you have a special time to write or how is your day structured? I write all day, but my favourite time to write is during night, that’s when I write best.
Do you listen to music or watch TV/movie while you write? I always listen to music, it makes me concentrate better, especially when I am listening Pink Floyd. I absolutely love them!
What have you written? I published only a part of my poetry, but I also like to write short sci-fi stories, short love stories, and currently I am working at a novel.
Any advice for aspiring authors? Yes, work hard, publish, and don’t give up! You can do anything you set your mind to, as long as you believe in yourself and your dream. So believe in yourself, believe in your dream, and work hard for it, you will get there!
What is the hardest thing about writing? For me, writing is an amazing journey, I enjoy the ride to the fullest.
You mentioned you’re writing a new story. How about a teaser? It’s going to be a unique love story and I can’t wait to finish it and share it with my readers!
What do your readers mean to you? My readers mean a lot to me, I see them as friends and I enjoy chatting with them, getting to know them, and also letting them know me.
