bio:

Angela Resta (grade 12)

My name is Angela Resta and I am a senior. During my leisure time, I enjoy creating by painting and drawing. I like to journal as well as free write oppose to school work. On sunny days, I go to the beach to swim, read, and relax in the sun.

what is your main source of inspiration?

My main source of inspiration were the fairy tales I used to read when I was younger. I was always interested in the magical aspect of the stories as well as how it was common for animals to be involved in the storyline. I wanted to incorporate both of those ideas into my piece.

What was the most difficult part of your writing process for this work?

The most difficult part of my writing process for this work was figuring out the ending. I wasn’t sure how I wanted it to go, dramatically or more simple. Also, I wasn’t sure how to capture the feel of the ending in words.

What is your ideal writing environment?

My ideal writing environment can be anywhere. From the comfort of my home to the chaos in a school classroom, I can write anywhere. As long as I am in my own head space, the words flow onto the paper.
