‘Writing is my way of giving back to the society..’
Inspired by the circumstances and ignited by the desire to give back, I realised that writing could be my way of sharing my thoughts and learnings with others. I didn’t plan for Fall, Don’t Fail to be my debut work. I thought of starting with a blog or an article, but when I started writing it became clear to me that the content I had could not be shared in an article. So, I continued writing and ended up with a book-length draft.
‘I am trying to balance writing with my professional work..’
Writing is a great form of expressing oneself. For me, it is very liberating as well. The difficult part in my case is to find the right balance between my passion for writing and my passion for the professional work that I do. I love both of them equally and try to give them equal time.
I don’t follow a writing schedule. Writing for me is a liberating experience so I don’t put boundaries around it. When I write, I write for hours and days together and sometimes I don’t write for weeks. But, yes I do keep making my notes as thoughts and ideas come to mind.
I’ve published one book and am working on another three. The good part is that they’re all different from each other in the subject matter.
“We happily live in our myths. When reality hits and breaks these myths, we feel sad and cheated. Then, we accept it, move on and become happy again. In this reformed state we create our new happy myths, which are bound to be broken by a new reality again. This loop is infinite. Sane are those who can come out of this loop to permanently embrace happiness.” - 'Fall, Don't Fail'

Tips and tricks for aspiring writers
I would just like to say that do a good job and do it in a non-compulsive way, which means giving your writing the time it deserves. Be under no pressure to be in a rush. Just focus on the central idea, plot or whatever you want to present to the world, and take it slow and steady.
