We are back again with an author who makes his debut in writing field with an innovative thought. Let’s hear it our straight from the horse’s mouth, here’s the chat we had with Vikas Singal.
Let’s start with a formal introduction. Tell us something about your daily schedule and the things which define you and your lifestyle.
Well. I work for Ribbun Software Pvt Ltd as Co-Founder Director. It’s a software venture with my friend Mohit. I normally work till late in the night, so my day starts late at around 9 in the morning. Work is my worship, Writing is my passion.
‘AND… THEY FELL IN LOVE’, tell us something about it.
These short stories are bases on true incidents which happened to me or people nearby me. One day I wrote them in form of stories and that’s how it began.
Why an e-book? According to your experience, how’s the market?
To be honest, I wanted the paper version of the same but the final cost came too high. I did not want my readers to spend 125/- for a 26 page book. So E-Book was a much better and cheaper option.
Your book comprises of three short stories where strangers meet and fell in love. Do you truly believe in it? Have you had a similar ‘real’ story?
Yes I do believe in it. I believe in it that’s why I can write it. Yes, one of the story is quite near to my own life experience.
‘Writing’, what is the importance of this word in your life?
It’s as important to my life as water. The more I drink it, I feel healthy.
How’s the response from the readers and what were your expectations?
So far so good. I did not expect a lot from it. I just wanted to reach the right audience. Still a long way to go!
Are you currently working on a new book? Would you like to share something about that?
Yes, I am working on two projects. One is a collection of short stories and the other one would be my first full length novel. Both are based on relationships.
According to you, what’s the most difficult part of writing?
Do you read? Who’s your favorite author? And your favorite book?
Yes. I read a lot. “Five point somebody” would remain my best book forever. It was the fiction I ever read. Off course, Chetan Bhagat is my favorite author.
What is your advice for young and budding writers?
Write more. Have faith in yourself. Be yourself. Write the way you want to write.
