Let’s dive into the interview with the author to know the journey of “Articulated Abstracts”

Can you tell us a little about your book?

This book contains short stories that are heavy and evocative in nature while showcasing multitude of minute concepts. They vary in tones, some I believe will be relatable to the reader while others quite alien at first.

Is there a specific event that inspired this story or was this an out-of-the-blue idea?

These short stories are inspirations of observations that I have come across in life and thought on the “what if” of.

What got you writing in the first place?

I have been an avid reader of novels and more recently: mangas. Narrative video games and certain long form stories like The Lord of the Rings, the Stephen King novels, Robert Ludlum novels have all inspired me during my childhood. The intention actually was to try and write a long form narrative but I ended up with expansion of an observation and adding my imagination for a shorter format and came up with these.

What was your impression of your first draft when you read it?

Totally excited that this is happening!! Although, there’s a whole lot to improve in my writing but I’m sure Ill keep learning and expanding my writing skills.

Which part of your story connects the most with you? Why?

I think the one that connects with me is The Dream Giver due to it being my observation of an experience. Having said that, I do love each and every story here equally and totally enjoy re-reading them when I feel like.

What makes your book the one to read?

This book due to its observational nature in its writing is quite evocative and I believe that each and every story though short would stick in people’s minds.

What was the best advice you got while writing?

To sit down and finish what I have begun.

Who’s your all-time favorite author? Which book of his/hers made you fall in love with them?

Currently it has to be Eiichiro Oda. His manga: One Piece.
Although, there are lots more that I still love, each for a different reason. Kentaro Miura’s Berserk, J.R.R.Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, Stephen King’s The Dark Half and many more.

What was your most complicated scene to write?

I’d say the Hardest Story for me. That would be The Lanky-Legged Presence due to where its come from for me.

Do you have another plot brewing?

For Sure! I do have plans to write another set of these and expand this. Along with that I do have a novel in writing that I’m writing inspired from a tabletop game that I enjoy.

On that note, we can’t wait for what comes in this author’s story. AMAZON LINK: https://www.amazon.in/dp/9395563850
