Indian writer Interview - Rishikesh Upadhyay

What is your writing process like?

Well, As you know it’s very hard to get yourself or anyone back in that zone of thinking about the imaginative world or idea that's in your mind. During the day, I work at a local government college, and by night I pour my imagination and ideas out onto a page. I believe in and write.

How do you process and deal with negative book reviews?

I leave the reviews for the readers since they are to help them decide if a book is a good fit for them or not. I try to analyze and learn from those reviews and feedbacks. And, negative feedback is awesome since it improves us a much better writer.

What advice would you give writers working on their first book?

This is a good Question! Be ready for a lot of rejection. Don’t worry; never give up. But, think before you start writing anything! Make writing a hobby or passion, not for earning money. Revising and polishing your work before submitting it is also essential.

How many books have you written, and which is your favorite?

I have many written books and articles that are available now in Google scholar and other leading online book stores. I want something that educates me, and better yet, teaches me something good. I pick those books by the author rather than the content sometimes. And the best stories have something to say. That’s important to me.

What inspired the idea for your book?

I’ve always been an avid in teaching and research. It’s not possible to say where inspiration comes from? Well that is largely a mystery. Simply, I just love to write, learn and teach. From there, it just took shape.
