Question 1: Please let us know something about you?

Author: He is an author, an educator, social media strategist, a  technical geek, Copywriter, editor, content strategist, singer with many dreams. He is an engineer by profession graduating from Amity Unversity Mumbai with a knack for telling stories, a flair for detail, and a hint of humor. This is his first venture as a author and writing a book was always on his bucket list. He has been writing from a very early stage of life who  had started visualizing different work of art from his school days.

Passion and diligence are two traits that he  believe most reflect him as an individual. It is his belief that this is the key to being successful in any endeavour that one set’s their mind to. He love to generate new ideas and devise feasible solutions to broadly relevant problems. He enjoy embracing the lessons learned from failure, stand up and continue to grow. He is a city dweller who loves to travel, partake in outdoor activities, and find new adventures along the way. When I’m not on the job he loves working his way through every recipe in the family cookbook, and indulging his  love for seeing new places.  In a nutshell, my passion for creativity and constant learning is accompanied with the thrill of production.

Question 2: What encourages you to become an Author?

Author: My motivation is the idea that somewhere, someday something I write will make a difference. I have read books that have altered the course of my life, and I hope someday to deliver a book that does the same for others. I do have one book published, and the feedback I’ve received has been awesome. One guy told me it did change the course of his day after reading it, so that was cool. Ultimately to me that’s what it’s all about. Where can I inspire, where can I make a difference, where can the words I write open up a world of possibilities for somebody else?  A writer can get encouraged from anything, the range is so wide, from a nuance to a huge event.

It could be the fall of hair on somebody’s shoulder, or the rain that dances on the window sill, could be anyone’s ill-timed laugh, or having a loved one cry. It could be missing someone and hating someone else, the leaves on the trees or the kids that climb the same. It could be a cloudy sky adored with flecks of light, or it could be the anger that broils after reading a news article, it could be their playlist or a book that makes them think or even a TV series, a random quote even.

It’s just the matter of sparking an epiphany and the writers work their way around it. As for me one thing that motivates me and will always motivate me is passion.And I believe it drives most of the writers .Writing is a tough craft. It can be very frustrating at times. But it comes for most writers I think, from a very personal spot. They write because they have something to say. Something they cannot express it otherwise.

If a person is not passionate about his craft, either he was forced to do it either he does it because he has no choice. Simple as that. I think money and fame often motivate people who put themselves before their work. But usually writers don’t expect to be rich and famous all of the sudden, it’s a result of hard work and a bit of luck.

Question 3: Tell us something about your published book. How you started writing and the inspiration behind it?

Author: For starters my  book is all about how love incidents happen in a person’s life and what hardships he had to face to regain his true love is heart-throbbing. It is in one way a heart crumbling tale that will bring out the inner emotions of the readers. It is a tale of love, friendship, pain, suspense, lies and much more. This novel will grip you to your seats.

I have been writing from avery early age maybe in my school till I remember so and English being my favourite subject maybe this is what led me to write this novel. While Love That Never Happened  is a work of fiction, the inspiration stemmed from the experiences of some people I knew growing up as a child who went through the unfortunate reality of breakups, losing of their dear ones, unsatisfactory live, set of lies, broken friendships, pain of losing to ownself etc. These stories have stayed with me throughout my life, and knowing how important this topic was because of my personal connection with it inspired me to keep on writing even when it was emotionally difficult.

Firstly as writers/authors, we bring ourselves to the page – ours strengths and weaknesses, beliefs and judgments, fears and demons. Insight into the similarities between us and the story we craft benefits both the story and the individual. 

A second source of inspiration to me is my love of series writing. I enjoy having an established story world in which I can continue visiting my characters. Writing a series means we have many variables already in place when we start writing a new book – the setting, the recurring characters, and the voice. That’s when real creativity can come into play as we come up with new situations and conflicts for the characters to face.

Thirdly, a large source of inspiration are my readers themselves. They encourage me, chide me when I haven’t lived up to their expectations, and offer up ideas. The way that my characters have become real to them so that they want to spend more time with them helps keep me focused and motivated as a writer.

Question 4: What is your current goal in writing career?

Author: As a writer, I have many varied goals when it comes to my craft. I won’t lie; money is an excellent temptation Supposedly extrinsic motivation causes a person to be less creative than intrinsic motivation (writing for enjoyment, self-expression, etc.) so I always try to focus on the intrinsic rewards of writing rather than the extrinsic rewards. But I’m not entirely successful.

I hold the belief that writing is the easiest way to change the world. It’s a quick and easy way to spread your message to millions of people, especially with the Internet. Anyone can do it. It’s not limited to a particular set of people. This isn’t to say I want to change the world with my writing, but the power my words have certainly imbues me with a respect for the craft and a motivation to do what I can.

For some of my stories, I write them as I’m watching the events play out in my mind, like a movie. Consequently, for some of my stories, I think it’d be incredible to see them as a movie, just to watch my imagination come to life. So getting certain stories made into films is another goal.

I think another goal for me is just getting something in print. Being able to write and publish a story, so that I could go to a library or a bookstore, find my book, feel the pages, and see my words in print. And this  would give me the most tremendous feeling of satisfaction. Although it is small, I think this goal is one that is first and foremost in my mind.

I have lots of goals, sometimes one will motivate me more than another. Every writer probably has different goals, but the important thing is to keep writing.

Question 5: Achievement So far?

Author: This is a very interesting question yet a tough one for me to answer but I believe  my greatest accomplishment as a writer is that I wrote a book and got it published that has touched people’s hearts. I believe anyone can write a book but few people can get it  published ,and should always believe in one self and should be proud of what they have written.

Question 6: What you love to write the most. What is your favourite genre in writing and reading?

Author: I like writing Fiction novels because it allows me to share what’s inside to those on the outside. Writing allows me to be connected to other souls. Writing is as basic a need for me as breathing. So what I like about it most is that writing is part of what keeps me alive. I write absolutely every day, regardless of how I’m otherwise feeling. Being able to write does not seem to depend on my mood or my other responsibilities. I sit down and words just keep coming.

I make a point of writing by hand on at least some days of each week, even though on those days and others, I mostly type. It is my habit to write at least one piece each day that requires me to learn something new. Even if that “piece” is just a few paragraphs, I find ways to incorporate something I’ve just learned. Sometimes, however, what happens is that I verify or clarify something I already thought I knew before committing that to “paper.” It never hurts to double-check! Instead, I start responding to a question of my own or related to something someone else has said or asked, and that sends me off to investigate. I’m one of those people who clarifies her understanding by writing and editing. 

I’m an incessant reader: I more or less always have a book at hand—sometimes more than one. My favorite genre is mysteries, I love a twisty plot and tend to pit my wits against the fictional sleuth to see whether I can figure out the solution before anyone else does. I read a lot of other fiction (novels and short stories) and a fair amount of non-fiction as well—history, biographies, classic horror  and true crime

Question 7: Are you writing other books as well, let us know about the same.

Author: Yes I am writing 2 more books out of which one is a Horror Gothic and the other on is the sequel of my previous book “Love That Never Happened” that will be published by Septmber 2020 so guys stay tuned.

Question 8: Many authors and readers will come across this article. What is your message to those readers and authors? 

Author: A beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset. When you wake up, take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive and healthy. The moment you start acting like life is a blessing, I assure you that it will start to feel like one.

Time spent living is time worth appreciating.”
