Q: What was the hardest part of writing your book? When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
A: The hardest part of writing, for me, is finishing a story. I wrote many stories and, in most of them, I got to so intricate plots that I question myself: “How on Earth can I solve this?”
I first realized that I wanted to be a writer in my childhood. I had many dreams, some achievable, some impossible—most of them related to Arts. One of them was writing.
Q: How long does it take you to write a book?
A: If I can have a full-time dedication, it will take one month, two months. I did the experience. With the present circumstances of my life, much longer.
Q: What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?
A: Every moment is important, when you have a job and a family to take care of and you are studying at the same time. Nights and early mornings are fundamental. Nowadays, I almost don’t sleep.
Q: What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
A: I cannot force myself to write; it is something that comes spontaneously. Sometimes, I wake up in the middle of the night, with my mind full of ideas, and I can’t rest until I put them on writing. I start writing and the night flows away. Sometimes I’m working and spend my breaks writing, because the ideas appear in my mind and are so quick that I can’t let them run away.
