  • Where are you from?

I’m from Norway.

  • Why do you write? 

As an introvert, I have found writing to be an effective tool for sorting out my thoughts and making sense of my emotions. Writing provides me with a space to process my thoughts and feelings in a way that feels natural and comfortable for me.

In addition, writing gives me the freedom and peace that I need to express myself creatively and authentically. Through writing, I am able to explore new ideas and perspectives, and connect with others in a meaningful way.

Overall, writing has become a fundamental part of my personal and professional life, providing me with an outlet for self-expression and helping me to navigate life’s challenges with clarity and purpose.

  • What do you write about? 

I write about personal development, personal growth, and self-improvement. My focus is on life lessons and inspiring quotes that encourage readers to reflect on their own experiences and to strive towards their personal and professional goals. I believe that everyone has the potential to grow and learn, and my aim is to provide the tools and inspiration to help my readers do just that.

  • Do you have a specific writing style?

Yes, I do have a specific writing style. I strive to be inspiring and witty in my writing, capturing the reader’s attention and engaging them in a unique and meaningful way. I believe that writing can be both educational and entertaining, and I strive to find that perfect balance in my work.

By incorporating humor and wit, I aim to make my writing more relatable and enjoyable for the reader, while still conveying important messages and insights. My goal is to create a writing style that is both informative and inspiring, leaving a lasting impact on the reader and encouraging them to see the world in a new and exciting way.

  • What are obstacles that come in the way of writing? 

As a writer, there are several obstacles that can come in the way of producing quality work. The first obstacle is finding the time to write, especially when balancing a full-time job. It can be difficult to set aside dedicated time for writing, especially when faced with other responsibilities and commitments.

Another common obstacle is losing motivation. Writing can be a challenging and demanding process, and it’s easy to lose sight of the end goal when faced with writer’s block or other creative challenges.

Finally, impatience can also be an obstacle in the writing process. Writing often requires patience and persistence, and it can be tempting to give up or rush the process when faced with obstacles or setbacks.

These obstacles can be difficult to overcome, but they are not insurmountable. With dedication, determination, and a willingness to persevere, it is possible to overcome these challenges and produce meaningful, impactful writing.

  • What’s the most memorable thing asked/said by a reader about your work?

As I just published my first books, I have not yet had the opportunity to receive feedback or questions from readers. However, I am eager to engage with my audience and learn more about their experiences with my work. I believe that feedback and dialogue with readers is a crucial part of the writing process, and I look forward to the opportunity to connect with my audience in the future.

  • How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing for 4 years now.

  •  When did you first realize you wanted to become a writer?

When I published my first books.

  • What is your work schedule like when you are writing?

When I am writing, I follow a structured work schedule that allows me to be productive and efficient. I utilize the Pomodoro Technique, which involves breaking my work into focused 25-minute intervals, with short breaks in between. This helps me to stay focused and avoid burnout, while still making steady progress on my writing.

In addition to the Pomodoro Technique, I also try to write a minimum of 200 words every day. This helps me to build momentum and maintain a consistent writing pace, even when faced with distractions or other challenges.

By adhering to this work schedule, I am able to stay focused and productive, ensuring that I am able to make steady progress on my writing projects. Whether I am working on a longer-term project or simply jotting down ideas and thoughts, I find that this structured approach helps me to stay organized and motivated, and produces my best work.

  • What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

My interesting writing quirk is that I bring a modern and innovative perspective to my writing. I strive to bring fresh ideas and unique viewpoints to my work, making it both engaging and thought-provoking for my readers.

  • How long does it take to write a book?

That depends. It can take a day, week, month or year.

  • Do you have suggestions on how to become a better writer?

As a new author, there are several key pieces of advice that I would offer. Firstly, it’s important to be an avid reader. Reading extensively will not only help you improve your writing, but also give you a better understanding of your genre and the market you’re entering.

Another important piece of advice is to experiment with different writing styles. Don’t be afraid to try new things and see what works best for you. This exploration can help you find your unique voice and style as a writer.

Finally, it’s crucial to find your genre. This will allow you to focus your efforts and hone your craft in a specific area. Understanding your genre will also help you target your audience and market your work effectively.

In summary, my advice for new authors is to read a lot of books, explore with writing styles, and find your genre. By doing so, you will be well on your way to a successful writing career.
