Interview with Shivansh Sarin
Category : Interviews
Today, we have teenage author Shivansh Sarin. Let’s talk with him to know further about him.
Can you please introduce yourself to the world of literature?
I’m a teen looking for a way to express myself. And writing is a mirror of my emotions. I’ve coauthored an anthology of stories and the second book is just a month away. Pursuing BBM in international business and diploma in event management. Writing is an art we have within us, not all realize it.
When did you start writing?
I don’t remember a day when I thought I should start writing, it just happened. I’m not much of a good speaker. Writing personal notes, to diaries, to blogs, now books. It’s been a beautiful journey. I could only feel my interest growing each day.
When you published first?
I was randomly going through few publishing houses on google when I read about the anthology of stories by Artson Publishing House. The theme was real life stories and confessions and I wrote one for the book. The next one is with NAG publications which is the paperback form of my blog.
Describe Shivansh in day to day life?
Shivansh is someone who will be your friend if you have a conversation over calls or messages. But you will realise I’m a very shy person if we meet personally. I prefer appreciating people for everything. You find me giving compliments and praising every form of art all day, every day.
What are your hobbies apart from writing?
Reading is a very important part of my daily routine. I can’t travel without a book in my bag. Also, I like to travel, a lot. When I travel to a new place, I prefer renting a car to explore the place because I believe everything has a different form of charm and I wish to see it all.
Tell us more about your book ?
From the Closet of The Heart – a book of love, gratitude, remembrance, and apologies, is a collection of real-life stories written by writers from the different parts of the world. Stories that are so relatable that you would want to hug the book close to your heart. With this project, we have made an effort to applaud the human emotions…
How do you manage your writing time?
I write when I feel something which I fail to express when I speak. Not being a good speaker this happens very often with me. Also, I write when there is a professional requirement. From magazine, to newspapers and everything.
Your favorite writer and why?
I really like a lot of them. Indian authors are making us proud by their superb novels. And I’m also a huge fan of William Shakespeare. His words has the magic I have never ever felt in any form of art. We have our own favourites, I know people may not feel the same about my interests.
What are your upcoming projects?
My blog is getting published very soon. It’s published by NAG publications, India. The short stories and proses of various genres will now be in your hands in a paperback form. We are also trying for a ebook version of the same. The update will be shared on my social media. So try to connect with me.
Any tips to the upcoming young generation.
Follow your dreams, only then you can live your dream.
