Smruti Ranjan’s Answer

1. What got you interested in writing? You can say that one can blend all the emotions that come straight from the heart, and write it on a piece of paper. in this form of self - communication, no one will have the prejudice that someone will judge. You blend your emotions into beautiful tales, that would probably rip off your heart and you write, hoping that someone out there can feel it, feel that pain which you have been carrying for so long.

2. Is there anything you find the most challenging about writing? Yes, the content, the emotions that flow down so fast. It indeed becomes difficult for me to capture all that in writing.

3. 3. What's your favorite aspect of writing? Me personally I love seeing the progression of my characters and the world I created, as well as where the story goes. I love to connect with the nature and try to write.

Hello, Orion,

I love these questions, but I wonder what your answers would be. Is writing a passion of yours, a curiosity? It is both for me. Writing has been a great friend and healing tool in my life. I am actually in a Ph.D. program studying story and how stories heal us, and how we share stories through writing, art, voice, and movement. Although in earlier cultures, we shared them around campfires and memorized them because we did not have an alphabet or writing tools. But stories can either keep up trapped in trauma or help release us from it. I find stories fascinating and enchanting.

The most challenging thing about writing is writing. You must get your butt in that chair and do the work. The next challenging part is listening to yourself or your characters and not the outside world. As writing is an art form - an ancient one and political groups often try to control artists. They try to make them feel afraid to write what their soul is screaming --- but choosing to ignore the outside world can be tricky, and writers and artists sometimes cave to pressures.

My favorite aspect of writing is the truth that comes out of my being - my truth, not the world's, not my parent's, not my friend's, not my partner's, but mine. I get to see the mirror of myself in my writing and in my characters, and in this, I learn about myself and my place in the world and how I treat myself and others. I love the growth writing allows and guides me toward.

I hope this helps you on your path...

Fernando’s Answer

1. Curiosity as to how the stories I grew up with were written and why the authors chose to write them that way. I was also driven by wanting to see poorly written stories with good concepts get written competently. Honestly I have boundless curiosity when it comes to narrative and both the hows and whys that go into them.

2. Overcoming writer's block and the process of editing/proofreading.

3. Brainstorming and mapping out the story beats and character personalities.

Just a heads up if these questions are asked during an interview remember to be honest. Don't answer as if you're trying to be someone else or someone that inspired you, be yourself first and foremost. Never be afraid to further elaborate and always remember to be passionate when talking about what you care for.
