Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
There are a lot of different perks that one gets from writing. However, I think the ability to express myself without having to speak is important to me. As an introvert, talking about my feelings doesn't come easy to me. Writing gives me a platform where I can express what I am going through without having to utter a single word.
What do your fans mean to you?
I don't view my readers as fans, I see them more as companions. They are going through everything I have gone through alongside me and that's important to me. They are making their own memories while reliving mine and that's the only possible through their dedication.
My readers are what inspire me and help me grow as a writer. They are constantly having to witness me changing as a person and a writer. However, they still continue to support me. My readers are my muse.
