Interview with Remy Zins

What motivated you to become an indie author?
My experience of life has left me with a lot to share, but few people to actually share it with. By writing, I put what I have learned in telling situations, which allows me to share my life experience with my readers in an entertaining way.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being able to surprise the reader with new ideas as well as share succesfully my life experience.
What are you working on next?
A novella about what the world could be like if human beings did not need technology to create wormholes.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am a math teacher. Sometimes I take a mid-term leave and go travel to Asia. I practice a lot of personal development.
What is your writing process?
For a complex project, I use Randy Ingermanson's snowflake method. If you don't already know it you should probably google it.
Describe your desk
A very simple school table with just my computer and a few papers on it.
When did you first start writing?
I truly started writing when I was about 20. I already had some ideas, but no methods. I keep what I produced back then under the rug.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it was telling a dream, rather a kind of Kafkaesque nightmare inspired by the artwork on Tool's album Aenima. The dreamer would awake and follow someone outside his house, and then wake up again. I erased all logical explanation to leave it to the reader, in the style of David Lynch.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read mainly science fiction short stories, the kind of texts I write myself.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Generally I use my computer.

Such were the last moments of the fortunate age when I still believed in the distinction between past and future, when I still lived with the lightheartedness that brought me the ignorance of my death's exact moment.
