Writing for me is a form of therapy and I think it’s an important medium of communication. What are your tried and tested remedies to cure writer’s block? In order to cure writers block, I often go to museums for a quiet stroll or a walk near water (beach, lake, pond, or fountain). What is your favorite time to write? I am very disciplined, either I write between 9am-5pm or between 10pm -1am. What’s the best piece of writing advice you’ve ever received and would like to impart to other writers? James Patterson, once told me, he “writes all day, Monday-Friday”, and I took that advice back in 2018 and cranked out three books that year. I think having a disciplined writing practice is very important. What excites you most about being a writer in today’s age? The most exciting thing about writing now is the amount of people you can reach through social media and get immediate feedback from readers.
