Interview with Aniket S Sharma

When did you first start writing?
I started writing when I was in the second year of my college. I started with some prose and poetries in Hindi and English. My writings were published in the college magazines and this encouraged me to write more. After completion of my college, the interest of writing didn't go away and I continued to scribble the diaries and later started a blog
What motivated you to become an author?
I am a regular blogger and the content writer. My blogs are being appreciated by many people and then I thought of compiling a book of my scattered writings
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords know the nerves of the readers and the authors. They are like a bridge between the two and help the readers to filter out their interests and at the same time they also help the authors publish their books to different distributors at the same time. Smashwords certainly has changed the way of stereotype publishings and they are doing great job in encouraging new authors to get their content published. I wish them all the luck.
What do your fans mean to you?
For me they are like my friends who are always there to support my work, encourage and motivate me.
What are you working on next?
I am working on my next book on business analysis. The idea is drafted and the outline is designed. I hope to get the final version soon. Certainly I need your wishes.
Who are your favorite authors?
I read non-fiction and books on professional development more. In that genre, I appreciate the writings of Eric Papp, Debashish Chatterjee, R GopalKrishnan, Debra Paul and others.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Every night when I go to bed, I make plans for the next day. I set time-table and devote a set time for writing, as I am not a full time author. This helps me in jumping out of my bed as soon as the alarm rings. By the way I am not an early riser..
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I wrote my first story for a story-book competition when I was 10 years old. It was a naive writing and It didn't get published in that story-book.
What is your writing process?
I believe in thinking of the title of the book first. When a raw title comes to my mind and I think I can write content around that I start framing outline for that. Later I try to divide the idea into different chapters and start writing content related to the chapters and then I compile the different chapters into a single book. Sometimes I need to do some rearrangements in the chapters but its to maintain the rhythm of the book.
What do you read for pleasure?
Well, I like to read poetries and light-hearted content in my native language to feel good and to remove the pressure.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle while travelling. At other times I read PDFs on my laptop.
