What is your writing process?
It's a pure confusion!I have few notebooks in wich I write,but with no order...usualy in the same notebooks I draw small pictures,and write the things that has nothing to do with what I write at the moment.I do not belive in order,there is no order in writing-you just take a pen and write whenever it comes to you.
Describe your desk
Who said I have one?!Do you realy belive that every writer has a desk?!If you belive in that you dont't know much about the life...
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
There is no joy- writinig is a fight , a fight with yourself, with your present day, with the inviorment.There is no joy in writing-it's like oxigen,you just need it,you can't live without it.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I have to work in order to survive.I'm real persone, not an paper persone,not a creation of media,or something like that.So,I write when I am not working.That's how I spend my time.Work to survive,and again work because writing is working.
When did you first start writing?
As a childe.I always had a need to express myself by writing.To describe the things around me.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Corruption in a small town,the hard life and the poverty...something about wich writers should write much more.Life is not Hollywood and glamour,nice facec and fashion...for most of the people life is hard and they are suffering.
What do your fans mean to you?
Julia Roberts has fans , BTR have fans, me- no!
Do you think that people should read more serious books?
I belive that.People should read more books that has something to say,like Carver's ''Cathedral'' , or ''An american Tragedy writen by T.Dreiser...
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I read was a Tolstoy's story wich he heard from his nany....from that day I know that stories should be interesting(something that F.M.Dostoevsky said in one of his novels).From that day I am searching for good stories to hear and to write.
