All of us are writers, some mere diary writers whereas others who're really born with principally primarily maybe primarily in all probability probably the most ingenious minds.
Can you ponder a world without our writers, authors, composers, poets? What if we did not ever get to gauge poems, the prose which has contributed to fairly a bit in making our childhood days principally primarily maybe primarily in all probability probably the most collaborating ones.
Let's come forth to get additional insights from the lifetime of some phenomenal writers. What conjures up them and one in every of many many finest methods they modify into one is one drawback we on a regular basis shock. One such creator, creator, and composer is Diwakar Pokhriyal, Author of “There is a poet in everyone", "Sapne, Sach aur Udan" and many more.
Time to get inspiration from options to some questions answered by an eminent creator, that now we have on a regular basis been questioning about-
Q1. Tell us a bit about yourself.
Well, I am just a common writer, who writes because he loves to write. I have started writing when I was in class 9th (in the year 2000) and published my first poetry book in the year 2011. Since the publication f 1st book, the sense of belief has developed to such an extent that the writing is continuous and has become an integral part of life.
Q2. How did publishing your first book change your process of writing?
Coming from a middle-class family, and no one around in a creative field, it is really hard to believe that a student who is not so bright in studies can write a book, leave alone publishing one. When I held my first published poetry book in 2011, it was like a dream. It was like; an impossible has turned into possible. And when something like this happens, the belief in you becomes so prominent that it starts creating magic and the same happened with me.
Q3. If you could tell your younger writing self, anything, and what would it be?
Keep Reading and Keep Writing, and write your destiny irrespective of the known and unknown judges around you.
Q4. What does literary success look like to you?
Success and failures are relative. They are based on one’s perspective. For example, for written publishing, 1 book will be a success whether the book does well in the market or not. On the other hand for someone writing a book is a failure if it sells only 10 copies. For me, I would like to thank God for all the literary achievements I have till now. Because when I see a child who is in 9th class and had no idea about writing and publishing with no creative person around him it has to be a success (or even more than that) if his name is in LIMCA BOOKS OF RECORDS.
Q5. Does your family support your career as a writer?
As none in my family is from the creative side of the world, hence getting support for your creative endeavors is a challenge and I have faced it a lot.
Q6. What one thing would you give up to become a better writer?
There are lots of things we need to give up to become a ‘Better’ writer because the word ‘Better’ is a relative term. If you compare yourself with yourself then it is a never-ending process. If we compare ourself with others then also it is a never-ending process because success or improvement is not in the hand of a few. So the process is on, it all depends on how badly you want to move ahead in the journey of becoming a better writer.
Q7. Who’s your Inspiration in the literary field?
I have been reading comics, poetry, and storybooks since my childhood and as I went to college and started writing more seriously, I have started reading Novels. So I love to read suspense, thriller stories more as it creates suspense and hooks the reader. Any good story, poem, web series, movie, etc, that hooks me will be good for me. But I should mention that Neelam Saxena Chandra Ma’m has been a real inspiration and a creative guru to me and I have learned a lot regarding writing and publishing. She has been a great teacher that has helped me in improving my writings and to develop a new perspective towards it.
Q8. What kind of research do you do, and how long do you spend researching before beginning a book?
It depends on the subject. The research will include reading about a certain event or condition or person. As a writer, we relate every incident, experience, discussion as an inspiration or base work for a story. Hence research work and its time depend on the genre and the plot that the writer has in mind. So there is no hard-fast rule, but certain research is definitely required.
Q9. What’s the turning point of your life when you realize you want to be an author?
During my Post Graduation year (2011), a thought crossed my mind to see whether I can be a published author or not. That was the turning point as I published the first 3 books during my Post Graduation only.
Q10. How long on average does it take you to write a book?
It depends on what am I writing. For a poetry book, I can finish in a week, A short story collection may be in a month or two, and a Novel in 2-3 months. But there are no hard and fast rules and it also depends on the theme and subject of the book.
Q11. What are your favorite literary books?
I read books of various genres and like a lot of books. As told earlier that I started reading comics first and that too mostly action. But I also enjoyed comedy and other books. I have read books by Harivansh Rai Bachchan Ji, Gulzar Ji, Ruskin Bond, Munshi Premchand, Poems by Foreign Authors, etc. In present times stories and Poetry by Neelam Saxena Chandra, Joygopal Podder, Amish Tripathi, and a few more authors.
Q12. Why have you selected to write in this genre?
I always wanted to write a Novel that can reflect the true mindset and people around us and how one can overcome fear and follow his or her dream. This Novel also reflects that life is not only about achieving your dreams but a lot more than that.
Q13. Do you hide any secrets in your books that only a few people will find?
Yes, there will always be some truth hidden somewhere in an artistic manner.
Q14. Do you view writing as a kind of spiritual practice?
Writing is the best healer for someone who feels alone or is a kind of an introvert. It gives way to emotions and helps in evolving an individual.
Q15. What’s the best way to market your books?
In today’s world, there is a lot of ways to market. One can choose the internet, blogs, pages or marketing groups that help in the promotion of books. Apart from the agents that help in promoting your book in offline stores, there are literary agents that help in the marketing of your book online too. So all in all there is no 1 way, every author needs to understand his or her target market and pitch the book accordingly.
