Author Name: Analise Paone
Story Title: The Other World
A girl stumbles into an alternate scary world through a blue glow and meets all the classic monsters.
What inspired you to write this story?
I love to watch scary movies like Poltergeist and read scary books like Goosebumps. I love scary stuff so I thought to myself, “yeah, I should try that.”
How long have you been writing?
I came up with story ideas when I was 6 years old, but I didn’t have the time to write them. When I turned 7 years old, I started to write poems, and when I was 8 years old, I started writing short stories and stapling the pages together and showing them to my family.
What genre do you usually write in?
Horror, comedy, and non-fiction.
What are you working on right now?
I’m working on my first comic book and trying to work on more non-fiction stories and poetry.
What advice would you give to new writers?
Come up with an idea and write it on paper first with a pencil so you can erase your mistakes. If you don’t know how to end a story or get stuck on a part, ask someone to help you. Also, put a lot of details and make your story will make sense.
