How did you come up with your username?
It's a songtitle and it also refers to a scar on my knee. When I touch the scar it feels like one touches velvet. So there you are.
Do you favor stories or poetry? Or rather a mix of both?
It all depends on my mood. Usually I favor stories, but some days I enjoy poetry too.
Is writing a hobby for you or are you planning to go professional?
It's definitely more then a hobby. It's my passion. I write whenever I've got time on my hands. As for going professional ... I don't think I'm currently good enough, but maybe someday I'll try.
Would you tell us about your current project?
My current project has the working title 'Little Do You Know' and it's a multifandom fanfiction, but the main character is a girl of my own making. I have written 35k words for the main story without an end in sight and have plans for currently 14 side stories.
What's your favorite book? Or your favorite books, if there are more.
Favorite book ... puh ... good question.
I guess the ones I've read most are 'Interview with the Vampire', 'The Vampire Lestat' (both written by Anne Rice) and Susan E. Hintons 'The Outsiders'
Do you like to have a plan or are you a discovery writer?
I usually know where I want to go with my story, but the way to the end is something I discover while writing. If I plan out too much of the story I usually lose interest.
What genres do you enjoy to read and write the most?
I enjoy reading romance, drama, sometimes humorous stories.
As for writing I have an affinity for depressing stories with a happy end, I think. But sometimes I also write romance/fluff stories. Depends on my mood.
How and when did you first discover your passion for the world of literature?
I was four, when I started to read with the assistance of my parents. I always loved to listen to them read to me and when I learned to do it myself I was immensly proud.
And I loved to tell my own little stories. I started to learn how to write around the same time I started to read and as soon as I knew enough I began to write down my own stories.
