Smashwords Interview

How did your writing journey begin?
I started my career at a law firm as a corporate lawyer. I spent two years there and then a few months more with another Company as their in-house legal counsel. Legal work by definition involves the churning out of long, almost unintelligible pages of prose, day in and day out but that kind of writing can leave you somewhat burnt out. Even though I was quite enthusiastic in the beginning but working gruelling long hours and that too on very dry commercial matters left me unsatisfied and insatiate. I realised that despite being well-paid, this couldn’t be the end all and be all of my life. I considered myself to be a creative person. I used to enjoy writing short stories and participating in theatre in my college days which I certainly missed now. So, I decided to take a break from my job in search of a journey of writing and self-discovery. And I’m glad I have made that decision.
Describe your writing process?
Every day (even on Saturdays and most Sundays), I start my day at around 9:30 a.m. after my breakfast as if I’m going to work. I work on my laptop. I spend a lot of time creating a structure for my book, which consists of short chapter headings, before writing the actual chapters. My family members have been very helpful in supporting my decision to work from home and in giving me useful advice, whenever I ask for the same, relating to the structure, language or the general outlay of my book. I find coming out of the “writer’s block” every day in the morning to be the most difficult part of writing. When you start writing a book, you are not sure how to start, what to write and when to write. I start writing whatever comes to my mind first and then proof read and structure the sentences or paragraphs later.
