First things first:
TheDarkenedBride we choose you!
Congratulations to TheDarkenedBride for being our September member of the month!
The reason she was chosen:
Though she has only joined the group a relatively short while ago, TheDarkenedBride already caught my eye as a positive force in this group. When browsing through the gallery of lyriclub , I often find her comments on a large amount of the submissions. Her comments are often positive and encouraging by nature and I'm sure her kind comments have made quite some of you happy already.
Thanks and congrats to TheDarkenedBride, we hope you'll keep up your community efforts. namenotrequired
Here is her interview:
What was your original reason for joining deviantArt?
My brother looked for some pictures on the internet and he found dA, so he showed it to me and I was amazed... I decided to join and share my writings and other artwork with the community hoping I'd meet friends on here and get feedback that could help me become a writer So far I'm having fun.
How did you find lyriclub?
I was reading new submissions of someone I watch and saw their lyrics being featured in your group.
How long have you been writing for?
I'm Slovak, in my native language I've been writing for maybe 2 years and in English it's been 6 months.
Your biggest influence?
This is hard to say, I read various genres of books and they all offer a lot to learn but I hope to never follow someone else's style, I like my own I admire Victor Hugo and Oscar Wilde very much, I guess they are my favourite authors.
Musicians/Bands youre inspired by?
I love music, it keeps me going and to me it's a great source of inspiration (it feels very pleasant to be listening to good songs and writing my own at the same time... recently I prefer rock & metal) no matter what my mood is, music makes it better To name my favourite band, that surely is Metallica... and my all time favourite singer is Freddie Mercury.
What do you like to do when youre not writing?
Besides things like hang out with friends etc. I really enjoy my everyday walks (about 10km), that's something I can't go without, the weather outside doesn't matter at all. It might sound funny but I like needleworking (I make clothes, accesorries and toys) and when I'm looking for more of inner peace, I spend time taking care of my citrus trees. What else? I really like watching films but ignore most of the crap on TV, to me that's a waste of time.
Do you have an overall goal with your writing?
I'm planning to study literature (most certainly in Australia to improve my English) and I hope to become a professional writer. It's very different from my actual career but as lately this became my greatest dream, I'm ready to work hard on it. It would be great to hear my songs being performed by good bands and know people read my poems and feel what I felt when writing them.
Whats your favorite food and why?
My favourite food is spaghetti. I don't really know why, I've loved it since I was a kid... I could eat it quite every day. In case ice cream was considered food, I'd have to hesitate between those two, lol
Do you have anything else youd like to share with us?
Maybe the chocolate/almond cookies I baked today or one more day of reckless childhood - it felt great to steal clothes from mom's wardrobe and run around the house like crazy, scream and shout and then come whining when I got hurt and she took care of me... There was nothing to be worried of, only a million of tomorrows shining bright there somewhere far away on the horizon That's what I'd like to share...
