Interview with AKS

When did you first start writing?
I started writing when I started drawing. As a kid, I always used to draw whenever I got the time and then write something which describes it . (I still do that ;))
I used to create my own comics and then read it and then tear it. Since, I was a lot into reading whether it was comics, newspaper my textbooks of History, English, Hindi or anything that has to to do something with a story, I started having ideas of my own, stories of my own.
Finally, I thought of started writing in 2008 and I started making notes of my ideas for stories. It was 2014 and I was still making notes only. Then I realized that this will not take me further and I will be stuck making only notes. That was the time when I started writing whenever I got the time.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I had three different stories revolving in my mind.I didn't had enough patience at that time to write three different books. Therefore, I tried to combine all the three stories in just a single story and you can see the result and decide for yourself whether I was right.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I feel I am free. I feel the story that I am writing, totally connected with it, like if I am living in the story or it is in front of my eyes.
It's an experience which can't be described but can be felt only.
What do your fans mean to you?
They mean everything to me.I always appreciate the feedback from them.
Also, I am always connected to them. It's great to know that somebody loves your work, your story and appreciates it. It is their love only which keeps me going on further and try new and different things.
What are you working on next?
As I said, when I wrote the first book three different stories were revolving in my mind and currently more than ten stories are revolving in my mind. So, this time I want to focus on a single story at a time. Therefore, these days I am finding it difficult to decide which story it is going to be. As soon as I point on one, I will start writing again.
Who are your favorite authors?
Charles Dickens and Jane Austen
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I wake up to see what's new that life has got for me today. I want to live my life to the fullest with no regrets.
I see my life as my own story and I am the writer or my story. So, I wake up everyday to face new challenges in my life, to live the happiness that is waiting for me.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Being with family/friends or exercising, eating, listening to music, watching movies, drawing,reading.
What is your writing process?
I always make important notes first and when I have enough of these notes, I start writing. Also, I make sure that i am alone and won't be disturbed. Listening to your favourite music while writing also helps.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read biographies of great personalities.According to me, it's a great way of learning good things or achieving success.
