How was your experience when you came to know that you were selected for “The Forgotten Life”?
Victory Dance, My experience was a first. I dreamed of publishing since the day I started writing, like almost 6 years now. And a year back, I wished and almost challenged myself to get published before 2016 and here I am, publishing on the first day of the year.
What is unique in your story?
I guess the emotion is unique in my story. Moving on is a hard part of your life and asking your loved one to do that by being a part of ‘His forgotten soul’ is definitely hard for the both the people.
How is the feeling of getting published?
Butterflies in tummy?! I will say it is a mixed feeling, you are happy, scared and excited. But I guess you overcome it when you have paperback in your hand.
Any tips to unpublished and aspiring writers?
“All best writing have to start somewhere.” This is the quote I always followed. And I still do. There is nothing wrong in scribbling a page or even a book with you writing in it. Just what you need is ‘Faith’ and dedication.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years in the field of writing?
Having more paper under my pen, touching lives of people through my writing across the globe. Sharing the knowledge, emotions and ideas through my work in best way I can.
How was your book publishing experience?
Amazing, Write youth and Author ink publications have been very supportive and inspiring by guiding me through the process. I am also honoured to have got a chance to know all the other writers and share our ideas.
Which genre do you prefer for reading?
I don’t have a specific genre. I read what interests me. Sometimes it be Teen Fiction, Paranormal or Romance.
Who is your Ideal author?
Hard question. Dan Brown, John Green, J.K.Rowling, Ruskin Bond to name a few.
What are your hobbies except for writing?
Reading, Fencing, Swimming, Dancing. My mom made sure I have a variety of interests!
Do you prefer work over writing or writing over work?
Both. It depends on my mood, situation. I cannot have myself writing during exam, can I?
I have stepped in the field I always wanted to, so I will always make ways for myself to be in it and make a name out of it.
