Thank you for taking out time for us Aaksa, and readers Aaksa is a young writer who has written her debut novel in her college days. And she has written this novel over a period of four years. Her manuscript was her diary, her old notes, some withered papers, tissue papers and what not. Let’s now jump deep into her experiences with writing. Team Ink Welcomes you Aaksa.
Q. When did you first realise you wanted to be a writer?
To be honest, I never knew I would become a writer. Although, this was something that I discovered when I was in 11th Grade that I could express through writing and I felt good when I wrote.
Q. How long does it take you to write a book?
This is my first debut novel, so this book took me four years to complete because I was in college and in between classes and exams, it was hard to catch up on it. But it was always on my mind. So I wrote whenever I got time, while a bus ride home or while sitting alone in the library in free time.
Q. What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?
So my way of writing is different, as I am a working professional. So while I am working I don’t write. But once I am in my corner at home. And I know it’s “me time” then I let my thoughts flow.
Q. Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?
Ideas just usually flow in because I think a lot. Sometimes while reading. Sometimes, some things happen in life which is unusual, so I build my thoughts around the same., and often I just dream and they help a lot.
