A Diary that turned into a Fan Fiction – Interview with Madeline Iverson
It’s been a while since fan fictions became popular. Today it is easy to find them but sometimes hard to find a good one. Time To Begin is a great Niall Horan’s fanfiction that was chosen by our team as the Ebook Of The Week. Today we have a special interview with Madeline Iverson that sometimes go by Maddy and other times go by Alyssa, a 14 years old writer from Minneapolis, USA.
How long time did you take to finish your ebook “Time To Begin: Niall Horan fanfiction” and what inspired you?
It actually took me an entire year to finish it. One night, I was beginning a diary so it started off as my diary. But as I was writing it, I realized that it would make a pretty good fan fiction! I went through and edited it and decided to put it on another platform. Widbook came later since I found it about three years after
Why did you decide to publish it on Widbook?
I put it on Widbook because I wanted more exposure and for more people to experience the story.
How did you started to write fan fiction?
I started from reading and actually liking the band (surprisingly) and I decided that I wanted to write a book. It was mostly from me being angry at whatever the main character did or the author’s horrifying grammar. It gives me the option of a fictional world in which I’m dating Niall Horan which sounds pretty good!
Who are your favorite authors?
I know that I’m like a million other people, saying that my favorite author is John Green but it’s true! And my favorite book by him isn’t even TFiOS (it’s Looking For Alaska, in case you were wondering!) so I feel like I (sort of) have the right to say it. My favorite Widbook author is Bel Watson though. I haven’t read all of her books but I’m working on it.
If you could change something in the world, what would that be?
If I could change anything in the world, I would make it possible for anyone to change anything about themselves. Even how they look and act. It would be something like Sims where you could change your hair color, eye position, and basically make yourself a different person. I think it would enable people to be happy with themselves instead of them saying they’re happy when they’re really just putting up with who they are instead of doing something about it and changing themselves for the better.
