Where do you work?
On Tell My Tales, a startup I co-founded, I write poetries based on the clients’ characters and stories.
Where did you go to school?
Prasetiya Mulya University, the one Ahok went to. I studied entrepreneurship and graduated with a Bachelor of Economics degree.
Your education background is not literature. Where do you learn to write?
I spent my childhood writing stories; my school years in charge of scriptwriting and copywriting for a youth organization’s projects. Now, I go to workshops as often I could.
I don’t stop there. When I’m not writing, I watch movies and read novels, trying to figure out how they unfold the character development and wrap up the plot. When I poop, I read your Instagram captions (and silently judging the way you write it).
Tell me about your workflow.
I listen to your brief, do some researches (if needed), finish the work a day before the deadline, and edit it before I send it to you on the D-day. I’ll hear what you think about it. Finally, I’ll email you the revision on the next day (or the next couple hours).
Can you give me a writing advice?
If you have general questions on writing (like how do I get off writer’s block and stuff), feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be happy to write an article about it.
Can I have your works for free?
Every time anyone asks a writer that question, a future JK Rowling dies and wastes his/her life doing admin jobs.
Where are you from?
West Jakarta, Indonesia
Are you single?
I’m in a serious relationship.
*Insert a pickup line.*
You should be ashamed of yourself. This is not Tinder.
Are you a dog person or a cat person?
I love dogs, but I identify as a cat person. Like cats, I’m fluffy and I need a lot of me-time.
Tea or coffee?
Tea all the way. Coffee is mean to my stomach.
The best place in the world?
I love the room I’ve stayed in an Egyptian hotel. I could see the Pyramids from the huge window. So majestic.
However, Indonesia will always be my home. Nothing would ever replace that. 🙂
Your favorite book?
I can’t decide between Rick Riordan’s Blood of Olympus and Inheritance by Christopher Paolini.
Your guilty pleasure?
– eating Indonesian snacks, especially the ones with enough MSG to spice 8 Chinese dishes for a family of 5. Example: Indomie, Macaroni Ngehe, etc.
– watching Game of Thrones.
What gets you annoyed?
People only talking to me (or not talking to me) because I’m a woman.
Your favorite time to write?
Late night and early morning. So quiet. 🙂
Power pop bands, like All Time Low and Panic at the Disco.
Hufflepuff. Hades Cabin. Amity.
