Are you having fun reading the interviews? Well, @priyreflects, @ashwini_menon and I are having a great time knowing authors and how their mind works!!
Today, we are meeting Ruchi Nasa who believes life is too short to hold any grudges and silly egos. (And wiser words were never spoken!) 🙂
Dr. Ruchi Chopra Nasa, is a Pathologist by profession and blogs at https://thevagabond.me/. She is a voracious reader and has been published in various online magazines like Woman’s web and Beyond Borders.
Let’s learn more about Dr. Ruchi and her book ‘That Year I Found Me’
The main character in your book Neha undergoes a life crisis on a couple of occasions – when her spouse cheats on her and when she realises that she wants a change of profession. Have you written it from a personal experience or did you see someone going through such a situation?
We see so many Nehas around us struggling with work-family issues, marriage, in-laws and so on. It’s only that most of us do not try to acknowledge. The character draws inspiration from many such situations I have keenly observed.
Should the partner be forgiven for straying in a relationship? Your personal thoughts on this subject.
In today’s hectic lifestyle, straying is not uncommon, it could be as harmless as sexting to a full blown affair. If my partner is as repentant as Akash and genuinely loves me and tries to seek my forgiveness, I would forgive him.
What message do you want to convey through your book – That Year I Found Me?
Love yourself first and always go with your gut instincts. Life is too short to hold any grudges, so break your silly egos, forgive quickly, trust slowly, love truly, laugh as much as you can and do everything that makes you smile.
Was it difficult to write a book along with the demands of your profession and home front?
Yes, it was difficult to write, but thanks to Blogchatter and the wonderful people I met especially Sonia, Varad, Sayan, Jai, Akshata, Tina. They pulled me along when I felt like quitting.
(Aww, ain’t that sweet!!)
What nuggets of advice would you like to share with full time professionals who would also like to write books?
Write it decreases stress.
Where do you see yourself a year from now as far as your writing journey is concerned?
Hope to come up with another one.
(Will definitely wait for it, Ruchi. Good luck!)
Who supported you in your endeavour to write the ebook?
My lovely readers, my hubby and my son.
How do you overcome writer’s block?
Music and a long walk.
Share tips on publishing and marketing your ebook.
I am still a beginner, learning day by day. My book is now available on KINDLE. I am still learning about Marketing.
Throw some light on how you research while writing.
I try to read as much literature available on the subject as possible.
