Congratulations for your book “Blahman and The Attack Of The Wicked Zombies” and for all the lovely reviews! How are you feeling?
I have no words to define my happiness, I feel like I am on top of the world.
Apparently the ecstasy requires endorsement and recognizing my efforts and showing such a kind gesture of warm wishes made my day (and he smiles..) I am also thankful to all my readers who have loved me throughout my journey so far and sincerely hoping to receive such a marvelous support and encouragement in the future as well.
Kindly acquaint our readers with your 2nd book.
The book “Blahman and The Attack Of The Wicked Zombies” is the second edition of the entire series I have planned for my superhero Blahman and his adventures.
Well, this comic fiction book is about two best friends (Aven and Steven) and a superhero Blahman. These friends are committed to protect the world from Zombie Apocalypse. There are several characters that play their role in helping and obstructing their endeavors in numerous ways.
I have already received great response from the readers and for the new ones, I am sure with great story line, tons of illustrations (comics) and lots of tongue-twisting situations will keep everyone on their toes.
What was most challenging part of writing this book? And what was the most fulfilling?
I am a young writer (only 10 years old), so obviously compared to any veteran writer, in the world of creative writing – I have to face bigger challenges in terms of writing consistently compelling storyline, intensely connected chapters and needless to mention that illustrations not only need to be relevant but also extremely hilarious.
Being a critic to myself, I always try to check on my writing that is it worth reading my own book, let alone read by others.
It is an amazing experience seeing your creative work comes to an exciting end – you will forget all your pressure and pain but only self-fulfilling feeling stays with you that yeah – you have done it. I do not think that anything in this world can get you that kind of feeling.
What is unique about your writing?
Well, there are many veteran writers in the field of comic book writing, and I respect them a lot and get inspiration from them as well but I guess my unique point is: I need not to think like a kid – well, I am a kid and I anyways think like a kid. So the adventure, the imagination, the illustrations etc are automatically aligned with kids’ mindset. My ideas just flow and my writing puts them into words, story and illustrations more effectively.
I truly believe that my tender storyline, the thought process, the illustrations – all of them – will bring connectivity to the kids mind and heart more easily.
What are your future plans? Would you like to turn into a full time writer?
(…he smiles and the eyes sparkle…and very quickly one word he said: “Of course!”.
This has been my dream to become full-time writer. In fact, my elder sis Shrieya and my parents has been positive towards my thought process already. I feel so blessed having wonderful family, friends and of course – readers (.. and he smiles again..)
Would you like to share some writing tips?
Ah.. That’s the hard part but will share my way of writing comic fiction books…
Well, to start with, I would say that as a writer, you should know your genre well and what will appeal to your audience. Second, always try to surprise your audience, create conflicts and of course the resolution. Third, remember to be meaningfully funny. Forth, be observant and learn from your surroundings, I am sure there is more fun around us that go unnoticed and the last, be self-critic.
Well, let me thank-you for inviting me here. It was pleasure talking to you.
