Anand: Writing is a part of life, which can explain feelings and thoughts on paper. It is not easy to write a book because it takes a lot of patience and courage. If you write any kind of book then you have not enough time for nonsense gossip. It makes you productive and can imagine whole characters in your imaginations.
You can put your sorrow on paper, which can not be shared with anyone. You feel burden-free when you put down your thoughts on paper. Writing makes you unique from other people. If you have, any story then pens down on the paper and make your mind to show your hidden voice.
Read maximum books, which improve your skills and knowledge for writing a good novel. Emphasize your vocabulary, which polishes your book.
Ravi: Where do you write?
Anand: I love to write at my desk place where my backgrounds are energetic and inspiration for my writing and working on my dreams projects.

Ravi: Where do you get your ideas?
Anand: I would like to say thank God for giving me immense power of imagination and consciousness. I deliberate on which scene I am in the mood to create the draft. Finalśly, I prepare the draft and design a rough plot of a story.

Anand: It depends on what I am writing that could cause the difference in my energy levels. When I write something, I’m passionate about like my book series or short stories or poems I get a boost of energy. This is likely due to the increase of adrenaline I get from being excited about working on a project I’m passionate about.
