What are you currently working on?

In February my latest book “A Swing in Heaven” went live. Currently, I am busy promoting it, reviewing feedback and interviews. At the same time, I am brainstorming about my next writing projects.

What’s your career’s highlight until now?

Coding, Innovation & writing. All three of them are passions that turned out in my professions.

What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

I like to travel, listen to music, have deep conversations, reading and meditation.

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I started writing two years ago and that day I realized poetry is something that comes to me from within effortlessly. I draw a drain to my emotions out on paper and it helps me to sustain my mental health

When did you write your first book and how old were you?

I wrote my first book “ Escaping Vapour of Void” in 2019 when I was 24. I am turning 26 this August

Where do you get your ideas?

The curiosity to know me, my emotions, feelings, thoughts, but also society around me inspired me to write something that we all can relate to. I believe in having a positive perspective on life. I wanted to make sure that these thoughts reach out to people and leave an imprint of positivity on them.

Synopsis of A Swing in heaven
“A swing in Heaven is a poetic blend of musings, placid poetries, poetic fables and Honeyed Poetry. Filled with versatility, the poetry pieces swing you through different prospects of life. You swing with seasons and halt with reasons. Wandering through the flowers of fables, you keep swinging till unconditional love brings your heartbeat back to a placid level”, Nitika says.

What is your writing process like?

Poetry flows in my blood naturally. With every thought, poetry flows like a river. It is not process-oriented. My writing is my observation, my experiences and myself.

Have you ever considered writing under a pseudonym, and why or why not?

My pen name is Unutteredemotions, which is my pseudonym. I choose this name because as the name depicts there are so many thoughts dying inside our heads, so many emotions that remain unexpressed… I want to bring out all the hidden ones so that the heart remains open for all the upcoming god has designed for us.

What do you need in your writing space to help you stay focused? 

Alone time and rattled thoughts. I love music but not during writing as I need silence to concentrate.

What is the most difficult part of your writing process? 

Compiling my segregated musings to form a book is a difficult process for me.

What comes first for you — the plot or the characters — and why?

Characters come first to me, based on their characteristics I develop the plot.

SimpleHealth

How did you come up with the title for your first book?

When you read the book you swing with the season, halt with reasons, dance with emotions and with every poetry piece you will be left with a smile on your face. Positivity will fulfill the voids of your heart. My latest book is filled with optimism. So, “A Swing in Heaven” suits my poetry set to the core. You will swing in the serenity of heaven too.

If you could meet your characters, what would you say to them?

“You had a great impact. You rock”.

How do you want to help moving humanity forward?

I believe that having a lot of money is not my cup of tea. I just want the amount of money that fulfill my needs and the needs of people around me. If I see a needy person I just want to help, If I am unable to do that it will be my biggest regret. I love helping needy people and hope to do the same thing in future to keep humanity alive.
