First thing, we would like to know about your basic info as a person, daily life, career so far and anything you would like to share about you with your readers.
Your Answer:- My name is Rohit Verma I am a resident of Pathankot, a small but beautiful city of Punjab Which is known as the gateway to the two states of India, Himachal and Jammu and Kashmir. I have been a victim of stammering for many years in my life and have experienced stammering problem personally. With many years of hard work, I have overcome my stammering problem to a great extent.
I wrote many novels or articles about stammering based on my personal experience and made people aware of this problem. My first article was published as Life of a Stammer which was appreciated by the people. After that I wrote several articles on this topic.
The most important one is How to control stammering problem, what is stammering, stammering mythology etc.
Stammering is used to create mockery in cinema, humor and satire, or in any area. That is why I had to face a lot of difficulties and criticisms in my initial days as a writer as well as attacks of mockery and sarcasm from people related to stammering.
2 ) That’s really great; please tell us something about your journey of becoming an author. When you started writing and how was the circumstance? Did any person or situation influenced you to write your debut book or was it your childhood hobby of writing?
Your Answer: My journey as a writer was not pleasant because it gave me a double life. A real life that I lived by living among my family, friends and relatives, and another fictional life that I lived among the characters of my story. I had to make a connection between my real life and my imaginary life, which was a very difficult task.
There is a story behind where and when my writing started. I used to write small articles about the problem of stammer and which I used to send in local newspapers with the help of my friends. One day a friend of mine suggested that why don’t you collect all your articles and publish them in the form of a book.
I liked that idea and I did so. I gathered my articles and stories and got them published as a book. The book was named The Five W in Stammering. This book was very popular on social media Although there were negative comments from some people.
The reason behind this protest was that the problem of stammering is related to the medical profession and you don’t have a medical degree to practice any opinion on this subject. Since I did not Know much, nor did I have any degree related to it because of which I had to stop selling this.
But despite this I did not stop writing and after a few months I wrote a novel because there is no need of any special certificates to write and you can take the story of the novel to any extent according to your imaginations. I did the same and focused the background of the story about stammering.
Today eight of my novels have been published and two novels are almost ready to be publish.
The story of all these novels is based on the life of stammer.
3 ) Do you think someone could be a writer if they don’t feel emotions strongly? Be descriptive please so that our visitors know about you little more.
Your Answer: – There is a writer hidden among every person. All we must do is to find the hidden writer and get it out. Because every person is naturally emotional. The only difference is that people who express their feelings by writing are called writers.
To become a writer, you do not have to take any special type of education. Your imagination power makes you a writer yourself.
4 ) How do you come up with the titles to your books?
Your Answer: It was very tough job for me. Many times, the story of the novel was in the mind but I can’t focus due to title of the story. I spend a lot of time in choosing title because it’s the first impression of the book.
5 ) What, in your opinion, are the most important elements of good writing?
Your Answer:- Writing is an art that cannot be learned by anyone. I tell you one thing that you must have heard that I am learning singing, or I am learning painting, but you never heard that I am learning to write.
To write a good story, you must bring your imaginations to a height where no one other than you can reach. And at the same time, the character of the story must be presented in such a way that the character feels alive to the reader.
6) What comes first, the plot or characters? How do you develop your plot and characters?
Your Answer:- First comes the subject, I have to choose which subject I want to focus my story on. For example, most of my stories focus about stammering, for which I have to create a character Facing the problem of stammering.

And at the same time trying to tell how he spent his life struggling with this problem and how he got rid of his problem.

9 ) And yes, the most important thing we would like to hear from you is what is your message to those new writers who have not yet started their journey of becoming an author? You have been their source of motivation, please convey your thoughts with them.
