What inspires you to write?
I believe that finding inspiration is a function of habit. Over a period of time the mind gets trained to seek its own inspiration. I consciously seek inspiration from things around me, from discussions with the people I meet, or by simply observing them, from the places I travel to, or from ideas that might have resided in my mind for some time.
Tell us about your writing process.
When an idea strikes, I frame it in my mind quite like we do on a whiteboard…Once it is around 60 % formed, I write it down and develop it further.
What advice would you give other writers?
In my writing journey I have learned that whatever a person writes should have some value to the reader in terms of a unique emotional appeal or utilitarian or functional value. Good writing requires creative blending of good language with a logic, both put in a proper framework.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I started writing poetry on my blog mainly out of interest. The excellent response that I got from the readers, some of whom are themselves exceptional writers and authors inspired me to compile the poems into an anthology and publish the book ‘Lei: A wreath for your soul.’ I felt that the book would make a good gift and wanted to publish it before the festive season sets in. So I went for self -publishing to quicken the whole process.
One needs lots of patience, persistence as well as business acumen to be a writer.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
The readership of ebooks is likely to increase all over the world with the use of smart devices increasing by the day.
What genres do you write?: Motivational, Nature and Spirituality
What formats are your books in?: eBook
