Interview with Blogger Vaishnavi Vasudevan

Hello friends, today we have Vaishnavi with us. Let us talk about her blog and hobbies.

Can you please introduce yourself to the world of literature?

My warm wishes to each and every one and first I would like to thank Prabhuprasad sir for giving me this opportunity. Well I’m from an Orthodox Brahmin family, my dad is from Ranchi and my mom from Chennai and I was born and brought up in Telangana.

I’m pursuing my Bachloer of Business Administration from Hyderabad. I’ve started writing my blog in 2015. I’ve done my schooling here in Telangana, this is the place where I’ve found myself.

I’m an animal lover and foodie too. My mom is the most important person of my life.

Vaishnavi Vasudevan

When did you start writing?

Basically I’ve started writing since class 5. My first poem was on mother that was the first time I got appreciation for my work. After my schooling I couldn’t write much but in 2015 when I lost my dad, that was the time when I started writing again, and here I found life in writing.

Why you want to write?

Well, most of my writings are on depression, love and thriller. Writing is my life, I’m nothing without it, it made me what I’m today and in simple words I write to live.

Describe Vaishnavi in day to day life.

My day starts with my dog waking me up; he’s the one who completes me after writing. I go to college, I don’t like speaking much, I always prefer to be alone, but I’ve some friends who are very sweet. They’re my blessings. I spend most of my time with them when I’m at college, I prefer going out only with them often but once I reach home I don’t talk to any of them. I read a lot; I’ve a mini library at my home.

What are your hobbies apart from writing?

Apart from writing I love to read, paint and sing (though I’ve a bad voice). I also love travelling alone.

Tell us more about your blog?

I’ve started my blog in the year 2015, though I used to write but I never thought of creating a blog until one of my friend suggested. I’ve named it “the watcher of your dreams” which I got inspired by a novel.

How do you manage your writing time?

I don’t have any fixed time for writing, whenever I feel like scribbling words I do, I don’t think where I’m, I just open notes in my mobile and write. Whatever I feel I just write.

What do you think of modern day relationships?

To be honest I don’t believe in love and relationships, I feel like people now a days just don’t know the value of true love, but it’s their perspective how they see a relationship. We can better name it lust rather than love.

How important physical intimacy is in a relationship?

It depends on the couple, whether they’re okay with physical intimacy. It depends on their likes and dislikes and their seriousness about their relationship. If your partner is not serious about you and you are very serious about relationship then I strictly advice to talk with your partner before taking your relationship to next level.

Your favorite writer and why?

J.K.Rowling, she’s my inspiration to write fiction, and I also read books of Paulo Coelho, Agatha Christie, Robin Sharma, and sometimes I prefer Novaneel Chakroborthy and Durjoy Datta.

What are your upcoming projects?

Well, I’m planning to write a novel based on romantic thriller. This book is my dream project and I’m sure people will love this.

Any tips to the upcoming young generation.

Just “believe in yourself”, do what you love.

Vaishnavi in one sentence.

Imperfectly perfect.

Book interview with Shravya Gunipudi

Hello friends, today we have a gifted author Shravya Gunipudi with us on board.

Can you please introduce yourself to the world of literature?

A Chartered Accountant by profession, and an author by passion, I love to taste a bit of everything in life. Well, except dancing, of course! I love DIYs and am obsessed with being organized. I was the college topper in my intermediate (CBSE) and was a district level sports player. Additionally, I am also a public speaker and that has helped me a lot in overcoming my insecurities.

When did you start writing?

The first ‘published’ work of mine was an article about rain in a newspaper called ‘Deccan Chronicle’. I was eight years old and that article also got me my first 100 bucks!

When did you publish first?

At a slightly serious level, my first publication was a poem in IIM-C’s anthology called ‘Persona’. This was almost three years ago. Now, I am a part of 17 anthologies and have my very own novel called ‘Turning Back Time’.

Describe Shravya in day to day life?

In my daily life, my best friend and my worst enemy is TIME. In a single day I travel 40 kms, work 10 hours a day, squeeze in a workout, read books (mostly to review), manage my blog, edit my manuscript (Hint: Second Novel!), make something crafty and do my daily chores. It is hectic, it is tiring, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

What are your hobbies apart from writing?

I love to make stuff. Decorative items, amateur paintings, crafts and anything of that sort. When I go to any store and see something I really want to have, my mind doesn’t think ‘Can I buy this?’… It wonders, ‘How do I make this?’. Or maybe, I am just cheap! But, yes. That is my hobby.

Tell us more about your book?

Turning back time is a mixture of genres. Its recipe has romance, drama, tragedy, psychology and a hint of mystery in it. It didn’t take me long to write because I knew in my heart how I wanted it to work out. That’s very rare for me. Generally, I go with the flow and see where that takes my writing. But with this one, I was sure. Everyone can relate or connect to it in one way or another.

How do you manage your writing time?

The same way I manage to brush my teeth, bathe or every single day, no matter how late I am. When something becomes a part of your life, you don’t have to ‘make’ time for it. But, I think one gift I am blessed with is the ability to find ten minutes somewhere and just make it work. I don’t need peaceful surroundings and hours of time to write. It just comes to me.

Your favorite writer and why?

Sophie Hannah is amazing. She knows how to play with readers’ minds. Her mysteries are truly mysterious and that inspires me. Her books will be 400 page or more and still won’t fail to impress you. As an author, she is my standard. As a reader, she is my inspiration.

What are your upcoming projects?

I have my second novel coming up soon. I won’t be revealing its title yet. I want to play with that part a bit. I am very excited about this one because it leans towards the genre of mystery and romance. It’s a risky shot, but it wouldn’t be worth the excitement if it wasn’t, right?

Any tips to the upcoming young generation.

I am hardly qualified to answer this question because I’m in my early twenties, myself. But here are a few things I have learnt. Find balance, not excuses. Focus on quality, not quantity. Let the tears out every once in a while. And finally, do what makes your heart happy.

Shravya in one sentence.

Calm on the outside, a storm on the inside.

Thank you Shravya for your time. I hope you will be an inspiration to the millions soon.

Book Interview with Jyoti Patel

Hi readers, today we have Jyoti Patel on board. She is young and energetic girl from the city of Hyderabad.

Can you please introduce yourself to the world of literature?

I’m a student pursuing second year of graduation. I have been the contributing author and poetess to anthologies. Few years ago, I found an online platform to read amazing books and to share my short stories, poetries and novels. This gave me the chance to publish my works online, which can be available to a wider audience. The votes and comments came flooding in, not immediately but from next few days I’d never experienced anything like it before. Each day I woke up to messages of encouragement from readers wanting to know “What I’m writing next” & saying “How inspiring my books are” So, thats where my writing journey has been started.

’Sensation of a Soul’ is my first solo book. I express myself a lot through my words which I may not dare to share with anyone.

When did you start writing?

I was writing since the age of fourteen, probably. But I remember writing poetries and short stories on the backside of my school notebooks. I always had this urge to write down my feelings into words from my late childhood days.

When you published first?

I began writing my first book with the pen name ’Jyotipatelammu’ on an online story telling community. It gave me the chance to publish my works online at the age of fifteen.

In the year 2016, Three of the anthologies I have been contributed have been released. And ’Sensation of a Soul’ has been released on September 15th 2016. When I was a girl of seventeen.

Describe Jyoti in day to day life?

You will either find me reading or writing all the day.

What are your hobbies apart from writing?

I’m a singing, cooking & reading enthusiastic. Travelling, music & photography ardent.

Tell us more about your book?

’Sensation of a Soul’ book consists of forty three poems and eight short stories. The affecting poems and captivating stories in this book share the theme of relationship, adoration, passion, love, hope, faith, desire, dreams and life. Every poem and story in the book is close to my heart and each character is dearly loved. Gladly, my readers have loved the title, cover of the book very much and they say“it goes greatly with the content of the book” The words in the book give the vitality of strong and deep feeling to reader’s soul. I think, believe and hope that “Sensation of a Soul” book gives the noble warmth of feeling, spirit and courage to all the readers.

How do you manage your writing time?

There isn’t any particular time of the day that I write down my ideas. I’m a deep thinker, I get ideas in middle of the nights or early in the mornings, when I’m alone or when I’m around people breathing down my neck. I always keep a book and a pen with me. And if we really want something, we will make time for it; In spite of everything.
Your favorite writer and why?

I’m a voracious reader and adore my collection of books. I read alot at times and sometimes, I just dont feel like too. I’m not a fan of anyone but yes, there are so many writers, authors or poets whose books I always enjoy reading.

Chetan Bhagat, Durjoy Datta, Anuj Tiwari, Savi Sharma, Sidney Sheldon to name a few.

What are your upcoming projects?

Currently I’m working on my next book. The title has been decided few days ago and it is ’Two Hearts, One Soul’

Well, let everything else be a revelation for my lovely readers.

Any tips to the upcoming young generation.

’Just write’ You can achieve anything in the world.  Start writing what you want too. Sit down, relax and let the ink spread on your palms. Appreciate the people who criticize you. If writing is still in your mind after people try to pull you back or laugh at you.  It is definitely worth writing to inspire the many in this beautiful world. Confidence and commitment are very important.

Jyoti in one sentence.

A simple girl from Hyderabad, who believes that she has been sent to this world to make it more beautiful and more amazing.

Would you like to say something to your readers, fellow writers or to anyone who is reading this?

My heartfelt thanks to all my readers for their love and support, those who are connected to me on social media. You all mean a lot to me.

Stay connected and keep smiling. I love you all. You are all amazing.  Thank you.

Well Jyoti, I must also say thanks to you for connecting with our readers and all the best for your future.
