Shreyasi: Thank you so much for inviting me here.

Nita: When and how did you start your journey of writing?
Shreyasi: Thanks to these social networking sites specially Facebook which brought few chances for me to explore this never planned field. My fiction got selected in an anthology authored by Ms. Henna Priya, which was my very first professional writing attempt apart from usual fb posts and notes. Eagerness increases when you taste success and this was how I took writing seriously.

Nita: What inspired you for writing?
Shreyasi: Writing was my childhood dream. But I never thought I can do it. Later, when I saw many youngsters coming into writing professionally, I landed my step.  Fortunately, there were few well-wishers, who guided and supported me throughout my journey. I felt more confident and took the affair seriously.

Nita: Is there any specific genre that you prefer to read or write?
Shreyasi: I prefer reading as well as writing anything motivational / inspirational

Nita: How will you explain your books?
Shreyasi: Well, my books deals with offbeat stories. The reality of life. They can be the stories of any one. I write mostly on/about females. Tells about their lives, conditions and challenges. I dont prefer to write mainstream genre as Love, Romance or Thriller. Market is flooded with them. I like to talk and represent girls, for whom no one cares. So, my pen speaks for and about them.

Nita: How was your book publishing journey?
Shreyasi: Well, so far it's going well. Getting support, help from many new people to make my books reach the masses.

Nita: Is writing your passion or profession?
Shreyasi: I would quote writing as my profession.

Nita:  How did you manage time between your full time profession and writing?
Shreyasi: I follow a definite schedule. Everything is planned. I save time from one activity and invest it in the other.  Writing, I count as my profession, so I give enough and equal important to it like my other profession. But yes, you need to sacrifice personal or social life as youve 24 hours in your cart.

Nita: Best piece of writing advice from you?
Shreyasi: First you need to understand what youre going to write? What will be your final vision of output? What kind of writing style youre possessing? Whats your strong & weak zone of writing? Do not try to copy someones style, develop your own. Your writing style should become your identity.  Always remember, everyone has a story but not all are the writers.

Nita: Something personal about you, people may be surprised to know.
Shreyasi: Hmmmm... I don't think I have anything personal as such to be known.

Nita: Any message to your fans?
Shreyasi: A greatest thanks to my all dear for showing their love and support in my works . I wish you will do the same for "18 Via Teen Be Yourself" too.
