Interview with KarmSavi M.S. Gill

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Just before I write either I have a situation where I can not apply my experience, suggestions from others, and sometimes I can not apply facts of life, or I have thoughts but not a situation where I can work on those practically. Then I set down and write. In the former case, I apply the facts, my experiences, and suggestions from others by creating a hypothetical situation and in the later case, I create a situation which fits into those thoughts. That's how I make myself available for a sample (you can call a prototype) to observe the situation as an audience.
What do your fans mean to you?
I personally feel that my writing is directly connected with my fans. We have a connection of 'Eye' and 'Light'. My writing is an 'Eye' and my fans are 'Light'. An eye can not see anything without the light.
What are you working on next?
A message related family, friend, humanity, responsibilities, love, and will of someone to live for loving one's. It is a story of a brother, a friend, a stranger, a lover who individually played their role to maintain humanity.
Who are your favorite authors?
1. Peelu: the first narrator of the legend of 'MIRZA-SAHIBAN' (1981)
2. Waris Shah: wrote Heer [Heer Ranjha] in 1766
3. Hashim Shah: wrote Sassi Punnun
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I read was 'Mirza Sahiba'. It is a love story from Punjab region of India was written by Peelu in 1981. I read this story when I was 12 or 13 years old. This story left an impact on me that how the society and caste became a wall between two people who wanted to live with each other.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I do. I did not publish that story. It is about a woman who left the village with her four children (age between 5 and 15) after her husband was killed by a neighbor. I wrote it in 2012.
What is your writing process?
First I write a very short story of around 2000 words. Then a synopsis of five pages (around 8-10 thousand words). Then slowly I expand each chapter accordingly.
How do you approach cover design?
Cover itself should reveal an idea about the story. It should boost the impact of the title and provide the exact picturization which syncronize with the title itself.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
By profession, I am a material engineer too, therefore, I do not have too much free time. Writing is my passion and hobby. Apart from all this, I like cooking, yoga, jogging and listening to music.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read quotes sometime.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I like e-reading on my laptop.
