Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
When I start writing a novel, all I have is a faint idea and bits and pieces of themes. As I plan, plot and write, these bits and pieces start taking shapes. But they still feel like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Every piece, that is, every thought and idea must find its proper place. At first, it really looks like an impossible task. But slowly, the picture starts taking shape. The story becomes clearer and clearer. And then one day arrives when I sit back and look with pride at the picture that I managed to create from various broken bits floating about in my mind. The feeling of satisfaction, the feeling of joy and pride that arises at that moment really makes all the hard work worthwhile.
Of course, holding my published book in my hand or reading words of appreciation from a reader increases this joy even more.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm either reading novels, watching TV, listening to songs or spending time on my smartphone. I love technology and waste away a lot of time surfing the web or trying different apps on my phone. I also have a technology blog called Techn0Treats. It is not a professional blog. I run it only as a hobby and because I love trying out and talking about new techno treats.
