Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have enjoyed writing stories and poems of my own for quite some time now. Stories were somehow left behind for a while getting back to me when I needed to offer to my artistic expressions a story told in words to get along with and carry the meanings behind different levels and means of storytelling and knowledge of the world. They needed to be alive somehow and, in my personal feel, a story would just do that: light the candle of life inside the core of the work.
As I found difficulty in finding my audience and get some feedback I started publishing online and, one thing leading to another, I ended up discovering 'smashwords' as a place to have my writing 'shipped' to other minds and souls.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing brings relief and joy to me. Every time I write I feel that I am engaged into a new adventure - another story is born and I am the one who has to decide the direction of its events and its heroes.It is fun but it is also a journey to self recognition and acknowledgment of who I became throughout the artistic explorations I initiated. It is a continuous learning about my own self and what it can gather, what I can accept and in which terms, why those terms and not others. It trains and educates me. It makes me want more from myself and ask much more from myself; it also opens the doors to what I didn't quite understand well enough, to what I have to get back at for a second review or a third one, to what I need to reevaluate and to what I should have known earlier.
Constant exploration of the world reflected upon the self, that is what writing means to me.
