Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Vanshika Prusty. Vanshika is an author and she’s written the book Rebel.
Today this post is all dedicated to Vanshika Prusty in this post you’ll find the interview, where you can find her and the book and a giveaway! This post hasn’t been all written by me so for more info check at the end of this post!
Her book is a dystpian young adult and science fiction.
Arvenig: “Hi Vanshika! How do you develop your writing ideas?”
Vanshika: “Most of the time, the ideas are influenced by outer environmental or emotional factors, and then those ideas are then broadened while I am trying to sleep at night.”
A: “What are your writing goals for the next year?”
V: “My goal for next year is to finish writing the second book, my first crime novel and my first fantasy novel and get at least one of them published by the end of 2017.”
A: “From where have your recently drawn writing inspiration?”
V: “For the new crime novel that I just started writing, I was inspired by a show called ‘Bones’ which is one of my favourite shows of all time.”
A: “What character would you most like to be stuck in an elevator with?”
V: “I would most like to be stuck with Lucas Kate in an elevator because of how he can make any situation seem optimal to be in even if it isn’t.”
A: “Where do your characters come from? Do you draw on real life? Do you create character profiles?”
V: “My characters are either people I would like to meet in real life or people that I know of. Sometimes, I put in one of my own characteristics in my characters as described by my friends and myself.”
A: “Talk about your plans for the future and how you hope to get there. Do you have a specific plan? Or are you going where the wind takes you?”
V: “I want to become an anthropologist, more specifically a forensic anthropologist, as well as a respected writer and after maybe a few years, I want to go back to university to get my degree in Law.”
A: “What is your mission as a writer? What do you hope readers will take away from your work when they read it?”
V: “My mission as a writer is to tell the world what I perceive as equality and justice and the importance of rebellion that has a purpose to revolutionize the world our world into a better one for the future.”
A: “What advice do you have for aspiring authors?”
V: “My advice to aspiring authors is that even if a whole group of people tells you that you’re not worthy, you are, and all you need to do is find a new group that will forever love you and respect you.”
A: “Do you agree with the adage “Write what you know”?”
V: “Yes and no. I believe that people should use what they know as a basic structure to build interesting and fascinating hypothetical stories of what they want to know more about.”
A: “Describe yourself, your favourite character and your book, each in 5 words or less.”
V: “Myself: Too scientific to be liked.
Characters: Diverse group of sarcastic people.
Book: Alternate realities of good situations.”
A: “Respond to criticisms you’ve received of your genre or your work.”
V: “Usually, I use the constructive criticism to help me write better, but when the criticism isn’t constructive and made solely to hurt my feelings, I try my best to ignore it.”A: “What are your 5 favourite words?”V: “My 5 favourite words are: Be faithful to your thoughts.”
A: “How has your writing career changed in the past year?”
V: “I started 2015 thinking I could never be a published author, especially from Rebel and the idea of being published still overwhelms me all the time. So, my writing career has changed vastly over the past year but I am happy that it did.”
A: “What book are you reading? How did you choose it?”
V: “I am currently reading Cinder and I chose it because of how many people I love loved the book.”
A: “Choose a character of yours to represent each of the four seasons.”
V: “Lucas would be a great way to represent all four seasons because Lucas can be kind and warm and refreshing like Spring and summer, and he can also e cold and brutal and harmful like august and winter, but he is only cold and brutal when the ones he loves or his survival are at stake and I find a kind of beauty in that like I do in winter that most ignore.”
