Hello, Sneha ma'am welcome to Writers Destination!
So, let's start the interview (Sure: Sneha Sah)
Q1. Please tell us something about yourself?
My name Sneha itself means “Love” and this is my purpose to sow seeds of Love in every heart so that there are no lies, no betrayal, no selfish motives only selfless love. The desire to share my story and the story of others who want to share it made me into writing real stories as they leave everlasting impact on the mind of readers. The author of the book “Love never dies” and a banker by profession.
Q2. Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing? What was the hardest part of writing this book?
Description of a scene or a person appearance is challenging for me. I learned a lot from writing my first book that is to include more descriptions so it helps the readers to imagine the characters and scene and they could place themselves in the story. The hardest part was giving it a finishing touch.
Q3. How long have you been writing? How did you begin writing? Did you intend to become an author, or do you have a specific reason or reasons for writing each book?
I started writing in early childhood, contests, assignments as well as the incidents of my life made me into writing. I didn’t intend to become an author. My own love story and stories around me made me write and tell the world that real love stories are stranger than fairy tales. I write love stories and that’s what I am most interested in because every story be it of any genre is incomplete without love.
Q4. How long does it take you to write a book?
I am a banker and my daily life is very hectic so I don’t get time to write every day. Eventually I don’t take writing as a duty, I write when I feel like writing and when the best comes in my mind so it takes too long to write a book almost a year.
Q5. Q. What inspired you to write your first book?
My first book is “Love never dies” I get ideas of characters from real life incidents and I can’t fake a character or build an imaginary one. Some or the other way the characters are related to real life and each of them play a significant role in the book. They should read this book because it has the touch of all emotions, all relations, all ups and downs one can face, moral as well as a lesson, supportive as well as standalone, selfishness as well as sacrifice, innocent and mature at the same time, modern and traditional values both find their place to give readers a full package. Main characters are Nikshay and Mishika, both are opposite, one confused and one determined but as it is said opposites do attract each other, they too were destined to meet. This novel sets a great example for both children and parents respecting each other’s decision and parents should not pressurize them for their status symbol.
Q6. Please tell us something more about your upcoming book? Can you share a little of your current work with us?
My upcoming book is also a true love story. It will take the readers through a lane of memories over a span of time. It will help one find the true meaning of love. The true incidents make readers imagine themselves in the shoes of the characters. I won’t reveal the title now but its full of different emotions, how a simple life was full of adventures and surprises can be felt in these few starting lines:-
“It's been 9 years that I could gather courage to pen it down. There were earlier written scripts, but some pages were burnt in disgust, some lines forgotten in hatred so here to start afresh with blurred memories but a clear picture and equal intensity of pain still felt from the past. This is a story of my journey from teenage to adulthood. Blessed with a good family and good education was happy with small dreams and small wishes fulfilled.”
Q7. What do you consider to be your best accomplishment?
Publishing my book was my dream because from where I come there are less opportunities. I wrote the book when I was 20 but only got to publish it after so many years so getting a platform was my biggest accomplishment.
Q8. What’s something you are really good at that few people know about?
People know me to be silent and serious personality but the ones who are close to me know that I am a good company to be kept.
Q9. Can you share with us the best way to reach you and where to learn more about your books?
I can be reached at Facebook that where I am more active https://www.facebook.com/sneha.sah.16 or
mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The book can be brought at the following links.
Q10. What do you think is the future of reading/writing?
There is tough competition nowadays there are a lot of good writers so to become a successful writer one has to be outstanding and different from others. They should change by the need of the hour and write what people have never read before.
Q11. If you had to do something differently as a child or teenager to become a better writer as an adult, what would you do?
I would read more and have more intellectual conversations and develop a habit of listening and observing. After finishing I go through the draft then and there because that’s the time when everything is fresh in mind and mistakes come in notice quickly also better ideas crosses the mind each time we edit.
Q12. Let me now ask something about myself, how was the interview?? Some thing you want to say about me?
The questions were really good and I liked answering them. I felt you are quite matured in your thoughts comparison to your age.
Q13. What do you like to do when you're not writing?
I like to travel and nothing other than travelling could give more scope and better ideas for writing.
Q14. What is the biggest surprise that you experienced after becoming a writer?
Marketing is more difficult than writing.
I would really encourage writing a book as there is nothing more soothing than to express your feelings through words.
Q16. Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Read, write, travel, there’s no better companion and teacher than a good book. Just want to tell keep believing and keep motivating.
It was really a privilege interviewing you. Hope you enjoyed the interview. If you have any feedback please let me know. I hope I will get another chance of interviewing you in future.
Best of Luck
