It is an author’s dream to be able to connect with his or her readers. The below interview is a part of such happiness. This was posted by Invicto books, you can read the post here.
How is your book different than others?
I would say that love for me is not confined to being between a boy and a girl. It is about all emotions that we share in our daily lives. Without love and believe, we can achieve nothing. Love gives us the power to stand even if we fall. I have always believed that when we lose someone we love, we lose them on a bodily level, while their wishes and blessings always remain with us. And God is nothing but the true soul that beats in our hearts, beyond the captive nature of a body. In this book, I tried to weave this belief into a story.
Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?
Things which make me feel good and positive, I pen down immediately. It can be a person’s personality or anything else which stirs good emotions in me.
What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your book?
When I started writing, I felt writing was the most difficult part. I had to be focused on the characters and the plot, etc. But when I finished writing, I came to know there are lots of other things to do like editing, creating a cover, branding about your book and finding a publisher.
What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?
There was absolutely no work schedule with my baby around, I never knew what time I could go to sleep or get up, but I tried to write as much as possible when I had any free time. The passion for writing helped me cut off Television time, mid noon naps, outings and any other distraction. I focused these leisure times to my writing. While everyone played, roamed or watched a movie at home, I preferred writing.
What do you think makes a good story?
A good story is crisp, clear and gives you a positive feeling when you finish reading it. Though, I don’t say a negative ending doesn’t mean it is a bad story. It is just that I believe everything we read, see or do should have a learning experience and a feeling of positivity to it.
What is your writing process like?
With Two Angels, I didn’t have any writing process. The story was clear in my mind, but the one I am writing now, I sketched the plot and the characters before I started to write. So I guess it is quicker than the previous one. Though I haven’t written the plot to such an extent that the creativity gets lost. It is just rough sketch as what the story is about.
What advice do you have for writers?
Write as much as you can. Read it and edit it to your heart’s content. If you feel something is not falling into place or doesn’t seem appropriate, remove it without hesitation, even though it was a tough job writing it. Because what you don’t feel shouldn’t be there in your writing.
How did this story occur to you?
When I was in class 12, one of my favourite uncles met with a major accident and went into coma. While he was in coma, he didn’t respond to anything, but when his wife, my aunt called him once, he opened his eyes as if his heart responded to her call. He didn’t survive, but this has remained in my heart always as a symbol of true love. Once I was sitting idle, it occurred to me that what if my aunt had passed away, what would have happened to uncle then. I didn’t know what I was doing, I just wrote the scene. I felt it literally before my eyes and I cried with it. The pain was too much. Then I felt about writing more about this imaginary story. That’s how Two Angels happened.
What is the book all about?
Two Angels is about all forms of love irrespective of it being from a mother, a friend, a husband, a wife or the love that we receive from an unknown God-sent person. The book is about the belief that love is beyond the cage of the body; it is the connection of a soul. And a person truly believing in love always rises in it, never falls down.
