1.How does an idea come for a story come to you?
I have seen micro-tales gaining immense popularity in the recent times, especially on social media.I thought that I could write them too… So I penned down a lot of thoughts relating to the daily lives of people, and converted them into micro-tales.

16. I’m 17 now.
3.Is this your first book?
Yes, kind of.Well, I had put a few stories on kindle once and then removed them later.
4.What is the story in ‘Minced Bits’ about?
Its a collection of micro tales on different topics. So each tale is around 20-50 words.
5.Why did you name your book as ‘Mined Bits’?
I named it ‘Minced Bits’ because it is a collection of very short pieces of stories.
6.What do you think is more important- the words used or the feelings?
Both are very important. Nobody wants to read a book with incorrect language! Words used should be simple, yet effective.Feelings in the books are the reason why people read them! So yeah, both of them are very important.
7.Is there a particular time of the day when you write your ideas?
When?Nope. There isn’t. As soon as an idea comes to my mind, I try to note it down somewhere, and then execute it later.
