Interview with Bangambiki Habyarimana

When did you first start writing?
In high school. I wrote poems and short stories and published them in my school bulletin "The Ray". Since then I continued to write and publish on different website on the web including my own blog.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing for me is education in itself. There is no more effective way to stay updated on the subject you love than writing about it.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
It helps me to distribute my books to different channels, and control it all in one dashboard. I highly recommend any indie author to use Smashwords.
Who are your favorite authors?
Guy de Maupassant, Montaigne and Sartre
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend time with family and friends. Watch movies and TV to refresh my mind.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I search them using google. Though most of my books now come from Gutenberg, Wikibooks and Smashwords.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I wrote a bad play named Homo Homini Lupus. I forgot about it and it got lost!
What is your writing process?
I go to my computer and write anything that comes to my mind on the subject without editing and looking back to what I have written. When the flow of ideas stop, I save it and take a rest. Next time I do the same until I feel I've written all I could and then go back to edit. It's in editing that the best ideas appear. The book starts writing itself and I end up with a completely new version and ending than what I originaly thought.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
It was a philosophical novel by Sartre which set in motion my rebelious independent thinking in motion.
How do you approach cover design?
I am poor at designing. I know a good cover is essential to an ebook so I enlist the services of professional designers when I can.
