What inspires you to write?
Writing inspires me to write. The pleasure of putting your imagination into word or in the words of Ernst Hemingway: to bleed, motivates me to write.
Tell us about your writing process.
I first set an outline. I should know the ending as soon as I start, but it’s not rigid. I am always flexible with my outline and ending.
Then I make up characters. Generally inspired by observing people around and sometimes by the demand of the story. I also introduce few characters with the intentions that the reader should feel connected or simply to add humor.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I listen. While writing I prefer to set the characters in my mind and I imagine myself standing there listening to their conversation. This also helps me to understand at what parts the conversation is interesting and at what parts it’s getting monotonous.
What advice would you give other writers?
Write drunk. Edit sober.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I’ve published my book on Amazon’s kindle store. The sale of the book is great there. Simultaneously, I am also looking for a publishing contract to avail the book in a paperback format.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
e-book industry is the idol candidate for the publishing industry. It may be a Smartphone or a Kindle device, their portability and ease of access are unmatched. But at the same time, the smell of a new book can never be replaced!
What genres do you write?: Fiction, Romance, Young adult, Humor, General
