An Interview with DonatelloCreates
Getting to know the Wattpad authors
I'd have had a lot of feedback and responses for my Wattpad project. The goal is to highlight and represent the different paths and journies we all take as writers, and how they're never the same. I'm a bit behind in posting some of the Wattpad interview responses I've had, but I'm still open for them if you want me to interview you. My Wattpad username is Chloboshoka.
