Tsana; His familiar career started from writing words that flow in his mind about someone's uneasiness in his social media and he is also actively writing stories on blogs. however, it didn't last long because one of his readers or fans suggested Tsana to write her story on Wattpad. At that time, Tsana began to often write her stories on Wattpad and unexpectedly the writing that she often called R Titik Sedu started many fans who liked her story. Tsana also did not expect her story to attract one of the editors to become a novel, even one of the stories was glimpsed by the director, whose work, Gezz and Ann, will be shown in all theaters in Indonesia in early 2019.

As in chapter 25 "The sailor cracks his own ship" page 302, the main character named Binta orders a close friend named Nugraha to eat fast food in the form of cheese burger when in fact Nugraha doesn't like cheese, but for the sake of someone he loves is willing to eat it Cheese burger. To love someone who does not have the same feelings as us, there must be more sacrifice and not despair, whatever the obstacles and obstacles in front of the eyes are still being hit in order to conquer someone's heart. More or less like that Tsana describes the sacrifice and struggle to conquer the heart of someone who is trapped in his past.
A person who is trapped in the past cannot move to a new life or what is often known as “Can't Move-On” is often encountered in this life.

A person must be able to move on from his past without sacrificing anything about himself, this book is suitable for consumption by teenagers to adults. Because, our moral message must open a new page of life with a new story and it is enough to make the past story part of the sweet twists and turns of life. As experienced by Tsana, being a writer of a romantic genre book has made Tsana understand more about the processes and sacrifices in the love story.
