Yesterday, we did an exclusive interview with our Author Satyendra Kumar Choudhury, where he talked about his journey so far and shared insights about his life and interests. We asked him a few general questions and he politely answered all of the questions and won our hearts. Satyendra has an amazingly positive personality.
The interview was amazing and we learnt a lot about Satyendra.
Through this interview, we came to learn so much about this amazing person. We hope to explore more about him in our coming interviews.
Here are the excerpts from the interview:
What motivated you to become an author?
The story itself. The story written in the book is my own story. I didn’t want this story to stay buried in some pages of a diary. I can say this with surety that there are thousands of people around the world who have same sort of stories which they have buried within them due to the fear of society or something like this.
Do you think someone could be a writer if they don’t feel emotions strongly?
Now a days everyone writes something but a one becomes a writer only when they are able to present their writing in front of the people, and if I talk about the emotions it is same as a pen with ink inside it without which it is impossible to write anything. These emotions are the only thing which gives us the courage to pen down our story on a blank page.
What else do you like to do other than writing?
I like to read good books and explore myself. By profession I am a journalist. I like watching thriller films. So, whenever I get time from my work I go and watch some thriller movies.
Did you come across any specific challenges in writing? What would you do differently the next time?
Yes, of course! When i was writing this book, after 12-15 pages i started feeling that I cannot write further. Though, i had the concept clear in my mind, I was not able to understand how to write or what to write. As, being a new writer in this field, I used to get confused that I should not write something wrong because of which I can became a laughing stock among the readers. Next time, before writing my second book I will beforehand plan the whole concept properly. So, that I will not face the same problem again.
How did you come to know about the Blue Hill Publications and how was your experience with it?
Of course from the internet, at that time I was researching about many publishers. Their name, their policies, the reviews they got, etc. and during that I came to know about ‘Blue Hill Publications’ through a blog, and through the reviews written in the blog I came to know about their way of work and their website which was really genuine.
As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?
In childhood, I used to think that I will work in CBI, IB when I grow up. I will have guns; will get the opportunity to face new challenges every day, but slowly and gradually with time, my mind got attracted to some other field.
What advice do you have for writers?
Never give up. Even when you feel you can’t think straight or write more, keep the effort going on, you will be able to figure out your writing piece should end.
Where is your favorite place to write?
I like to write in quite rooms or some outdoor place like park. I prefer writing late in night or early in the morning where there is no sound except my own thoughts. And if I get a cup of green tea or coffee with it then it is a cherry on the cake.
Who are your favorite authors? What do you like about their work?
Nikhil Sachan and Vinayak Sharma are my favourite authors. After, reading their books, I got to know that to write something you do not need the knowledge of great words, rather we can write a story with normal language, which can be the way we talk every day.
What are you trying to achieve with it?
Right now, I don’t have a correct answer for this question because this is my first book and through this book I have tried to showcase my story in front of people and if I got love and support from the people, maybe I can become a good writer. Till then, let’s see what happens.
We would like to thank Satyendra for taking out time for this amazing interview. Blue Hill Publications wishes him all the best for his future endeavors.
