First of all, I’d like to thank you all for the questions you sent and the awesome support you show me day by day. It truly has a special meaning for me.
Also, I know this was supposed to be a 500 followers Q&A, but in like FOUR DAYS since I asked you for Q&A questions on June 2nd, THE COUNT HAS GONE UP TO 700+ OF YOU AND THAT’S TRULY INCREDIBLE!!!
Again, thank you so much!
Okay, now let’s get started with your questions:
@t_astrid asked: “What is your melody?” I think my melody would either be Paganini’s La Campanella or Mozart’s Divertimento. For anyone who doesn’t know classical music: as a violinist, I can guarantee that in general playing Paganini is VERY hard.
Though once you overcome the (many) technical difficulties, La Campanella sounds really good and fun as well. The same goes for Mozart and his phrasing: you absolutely CAN’T play Mozart without phrasing, so that’s the big difficulty of his pieces.
Applying the melodies to me personally, I could say that even if I’m very reserved or even distant at first, once you get to know me you understand I’m actually pretty fun to be around; that’s why I think these two pieces represent me the best.
Besides, in Italian “Divertimento” (Mozart again) means “fun” (n.) (for any of you who don’t know yet, I’m Italian), so I think it fits perfectly.
Thank you so much for this question, @t_astrid: sharing with you my passion for classical music was truly great and I’m happy I could do it thanks to you! Now, here’s your question:
You’re living in a dream world where everything’s perfect and everything keeps going following your expectations. Eventually, you notice that you’re living in a world that is actually not real.
You have a choice: do you wake up and go back to the real world or do you keep on living the illusion, constant that you’ll deluding yourself your whole life? (Stay with me until the end of the Q&A, so that I can explain to you all what to do with these questions)
@kevenadams asked: “If you could write only about one thing for the rest of your life, what would that be and why?”
(SORRY IF I COULDN’T REWRITE THE QUESTION EXACTLY HOW YOU HAD ASKED IT, BUT I COULDN’T FIND ANY OF YOUR COMMENTS BACK ON THE Q&A POST ANYMORE.
PROBABLY THE ACCOUNT HAS BEEN DELETED OR SOMETHING, OR MAYBE IT’S JUST A BUG. EITHER WAY, I’D LOVE TO GIVE AN ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION ANYWAY)
I’d choose allegory: you can write anything — stories, poems — through allegory and be able to deliver a message just as powerful and truthful as a story/poem written realistically could do. Besides, you can write about any subject through allegory and everyone might get a unique, private message from what they read.
Personally, I feel the most comfortable when I write down things allegorically, and I believe being comfortable with what I write should be a must if I had to pick only one thing I could write about for the rest of my life. So, that’s definitely it!
Thank you so much for this insightful and fascinating question, @kevenadams. Here’s your question (in case you’re still out there): If you could give only one last, meaningful hug, who would you give it to? Why?
@shadowdream asked: “Your works are beautiful, deep and insightful. Is writing a career goal you would like to pursue, or is there something else in mind for you?”
First of all, thank you from the bottom of my heart: your kind compliments mean a lot to me. Essentially, I write to inspire, both me and whoever might find my poems/stories relatable. I’ve started writing at a very young age, so it’s now become like breathing to me. I couldn’t exist without writing.
Besides, my biggest dream as a child was to become a writer. Still nowadays, if I ever was lucky and talented enough to hit the publish market, I’d definitely be happy to make writing a full- or even simply part-time career!
Thanks so much for this meaningful question, @shadowdream. Writing this answer was beautiful and meaningful to me: I’m glad I could share with you a bit more about what writing means to me. Here’s my question for you:
“If you could have only ten minutes, right now, to spend alone with God, what would you ask him and why? What would you talk about?”
@sugar_cupcake asked: “What could possibly make you angry? Fave music genre/artists/songs? Morning person or ‘I want to sleep mooooore’ kind of person? Top 5 fave movies?”
“What could possibly make you angry?” Anyone who knows me also knows that I SELDOM get mad; like, very, very rarely. Even when people bother/annoy me, I mostly end up frankly telling them what’s wrong and what I honestly think, maybe abruptly too, but never losing patience.
Honestly though, I REALLY lose my cool if people eventually take it out or hurt on the ones I love, their dreams, passions, ideas, beliefs, etc.; only at that point, you’d really know what it means to have me get mad.
Fave music genre/artists/songs?” Fave music genre is classical music: anything composed by Mendelssohn, Mozart, Bach, even Vivaldi and Paganini, you can be sure I’ll LOVE it. My favorite pieces from each of these composers are:
Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E Minor (first concert I’ve ever listened to and thanks to which I fell in love with classical music), Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (you know it too, even if you don’t remember the name; trust me 😉),
Bach’s Violin Sonata No. 1 in G Minor, Vivaldi’s Four Seasons (these, you’ve at least heard them once in your life, or anyway you know they exist. Everyone does...), Paganini’s Caprice 24. Basically, speak classical music — or books, anyway — to me and I’ll love you forever.
Thinking about modern artists, I’d say my favorite ones are Alan Walker (my favorite songs from him are “The Spectre” and “Lost Control”) and Imagine Dragons (though I don’t all their songs and hits): I particularly love “Natural” and “Rise Up”.
“Morning person or ‘I want to sleep mooooore’ kind of person? (yup, I counted all the ‘o’s in ‘more’ and afterwards, my eyes started seeing ‘o’s everywhere. Let me know if I got the number right, because I honestly don’t know 😂)”
Definitely morning person, though I love sleeping. When I was little, I remember I used to be the ‘I want to sleep more kind of person’, but it eventually changed with time.
Honestly, even if I finish studying very late / even if I go bed at 2 am (yeah, it happens a lot), I could never wake up after 7.30 - 8 am, unless I was really tired. Like, DEAD tired. But even in that case, the latest I could wake up would be at 9/10 am.
“Top 5 fave movies?” 1 Gladiator (it’s one of the very few that managed to make me soak up in tears) 2 Harry Potter (I’ve grown up with the books and the movies) 3 MERLIN BBC (tv series) 4 Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them 5 Maleficient
@sugar_cupcake, thank you so much for all the questions you’ve asked. Answering all of them was really fun! I had a very great time! Now, here’s your question:
If you could get anything you want by making a simple wish to a falling star, what would you choose? In exchange for your wish to come true, though, you’d have to give up on one of your most precious possessions / dreams / friends or family.
Would you do it anyway? If yes, what would you wish for and what/who would you let go of for the wish to come true?
@rottweiler_18 asked: “If you could go back in time, what would you change or add and why? If you had 1 million dollars, how would you spend it? If you could change one thing in this world, what would it be? If you could live anywhere, where would it be?”
“If you could go back in time, what would you change or add and why?” I’d start keeping a journal way earlier. To keep track of who I was as a child. I think I started when I was about 11 or 12 years due to an assignment my Italian teacher had given to the class.
Ever since, I could never stop journaling and writing my thoughts and feelings down on paper. I think that if I had started earlier, I could now go back to those diaries and journals and read me as a child, my memories, my days,
even the things I didn’t believe to be so important, because in the end, as you grow up, you start realizing it’s those little, daily, “unimportant” things that you’ve now lost that should have mattered the most.
“If you had 1 million dollars, how would you spend it?” I think I’d spend a part of it for me and my family, to get us what we’ve always dreamt of. Personally, for example, studying overseas or at a more prestigious college/university once I get older,
The rest, I’d give it to charity or to an organization who fights against climate change and pollution or discrimination in any way (whether bullism, ethnicity discrimination, gender discrimination, etc.).
“If you could change one thing in this world, what would it be?” I’d change pollution: I’d make it as if it were impossible, no matter how much technology and progress, for our Earth to get sick and for our environment to possibly ever die out. That would be awesome.
“If you could live anywhere, where would it be?” I’d live within the pages of a book: I’d love to live in the Harry Potter universe. Ever since I was little and still now, just like many others, I believe, I’ve been waiting for my Hogwarts letter to arrive.
Besides, even before reading Harry Potter, I already enjoyed reading, but after reading the series, words, writing, books became my life reason and passion. To me, they are something I would never be able to live without, just like water and air.
Anyway my Hogwarts letter still hasn’t arrived, unfortunately. That’s why, if I had to pick anywhere to live, I’d pick up Rowling’s Harry Potter novels. I’d love to experience the thrill of receiving that letter, of attending Hogwarts, of learning magic, but even more, I’d love to live in the book universe that has taught me the most.
Thank you, @rottweiler_18, for your amazing questions: I’ve had a really great time answering them. Thank you! Here’s my question for you:
“You go through a terrible accident and everyone thinks you won’t survive the night. The only way for you to is if the doctors cut off both your arms and legs. They do. When you wake up, everyone calls it a miracle, but you have to learn how to live with no arms and legs.
So, now you have no arms and legs, but also no health complications (whether mental or physical) due to the accident; you are still able to see, hear, talk, breathe. Despite everyone thinking this is a miracle, do you feel blessed or cursed?”
@queenoctober asked: “Favourite type of pet? Favourite foods? What can always cheer you up? If you could have any eye color, what would it be? Where did you find out about Commaful? Inspiration behind username?”
“Favourite type of pet?” I particularly like horses (when I was little, one of my biggest dreams was to give horse riding a try), parrots, dogs and cats. Yep, I’m pretty much an animal lover: I just can’t help it, but find them all cute and adorable!
“Favourite foods?” Pizza, croissants, chocolate, handmade cookies and cakes! 😍😍😍
“What can always cheer you up?” Either journaling (helps me cope with unspoken feelings or something I haven’t dealt with yet) or playing in a loop a song I got hooked to, singing and dancing to it as well. Personally this one has never failed me!
“If you could have any eye colour, what would it be?” If I could, I’d exchange my hazel eyes either with amber eyes or with green eyes. Wonderful eye colors!
“Where did you find out about Commaful?” It was about two months ago, if I’m not wrong, and I was reading something online about Wattpad. Then, I stumbled upon an answer (on Quora, I think) where they suggested some alternatives to Wattpad.
As soon as I read about Commaful, its gifted writers and welcoming community, I fell in love with it and wanted to give it a try as soon as possible. So, basically, after reading that answer, I downloaded the app and got started with posting an allegorical story about ‘unicycle’ (theme of the daily prompt that day) that same evening.
“Inspiration behind username?” Well, to understand where my username comes from, I’ll take you back to 2017. At that time, I had just started my journey on another social media (We Heart It), where I am known as KGirl as well.
Basically, my username is @kgirlucandoit: We Heart It is a social media made for people to inspire others, rather than becoming their “influencers”, and I was searching for a social media where I could find content that would inspire myself, rather than others, at first.
That’s why my username (@kgirlucandoit) was chosen more as a motivation for myself than for others. With time, my community on there and I, of course, eventually started identifying myself with it: I write and post content on there to inspire, as well as I write and post poems and stories here for the same reason.
Now, for Commaful, I would have rather chosen something like @kgirlucanwriteit (which is my Wattpad username, bu the way, though I don’t post there), but I wanted to avoid confusion for anyone of my We Heart It followers who might come over here, search for me and never find me, so I simply sticked with @kgirl.
Besides, I didn’t find it proper for a writing community to have a user named @kgirlucandoit, which has got nothing to do with writing, reading and stuff, so once again, I decided to stick with a more generic @kgirl. Maybe in the future I could really change it to @kgirlucanwriteit; we’ll see...
Thank you so much, @queenoctober, for your wonderful questions. And a kind shoutout to you, as well as to @shadowdream again: you’ve been two of my first great friends on this platform and supporters as well. Here’s a question for you:
