A few days ago, we interviewed our Author Shubhada Marathe. Through this interview, we came to know a lot about this amazing person.
We talked to Shubhada and tried to know about her true self and her thoughts via this interview.
Shubhada Marathe has a beautiful personality and a vibrant aura. She delivered this interview in a very interesting manner.
Through this interview, we came to learn more about her. We hope to explore more about her in our coming interviews.
Here are the excerpts from the interview:
What motivated you to become an author?
I was truly motivated to write because I wanted to share my thoughts and ideas on the subject I was interested in. By this I hope to interact with others similarly interested. Writing was an avenue to express myself and weave a story on the subject I like.
Do you think someone could be a writer if they don’t feel emotions strongly?
It would be a trifle difficult to write without emotions and feelings .To experience the mental makeup of characters the writer has to enter into his character’s persona. So having a sensitive mind does help in writing novels. Maybe not be very true for non fiction writing.
What else do you like to do other than writing?
Apart from writing research papers, I read a lot – all genres. Enjoy travelling and music.
Did you come across any specific challenges in writing? What would you do differently the next time?
The challenge in writing this novel was to fictionalise real people – people I had met and talked to. I was not keen on identifying them. In my subsequent writings I may find a way of fictionalising places and people.
How did you come to know about the Blue Hill Publications and how was your experience with it?
I researched on the net and found Blue Hill Publications to be highly rated by many authors.
As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?
I always wanted to write and began by writing poems when quite young. I had a flair for language.
What advice do you have for writers?
My advice would be to begin writing by having a clear outline. Chapterisation also if possible. Then the development of the plot is well defined and can be made interesting. This way every chapter end ensures that the reader continues to read with growing interest – a page turner novel.
Where is your favorite place to write?
My favourite place to write – My garden with laptop on a little table in front of my chair.
Who are your favorite authors? What do you like about their work?
My favourite authors are John Donne, Saki, Rumi, Emily Dickinson and Somerset Maugham.
What are you trying to achieve with it?
I am trying to write what I have experienced and seen. Writing is a way of moving ahead in life.
We would like to thank Shubhada Marathe for taking out time for this amazing interview. Blue Hill Publications wishes her all the best for her future endeavors.
