Guest post by Amit Sharma, author of False Ceilings #TheBookClub

Today I’m hosting author Amit Sharma on my blog. Amit Sharma is the author of ficition novel False Ceilings and is here talking about keeping secrets!

Since your book is about secrets, can you share one secret that you held on to for long in your life?

Over to Amit.


Ok, here is something I have never talked about. When you think of becoming a writer, everyone believes that you are eventually doing it for fame and money. I admit that both of them are important and attractive, especially if you want to be a full-time writer. I will be lying if I say that I do not want either of them. I like fame, but not the one that is too commercial. I like fame when it is meaningful when it comes with respect to your art. I like fame which comes as a peripheral attachment and not something you have worked consciously for.  Ditto for money. I believe you lose direction if you are writing with fame and money as goals. They cannot be at the crux of your writing process. You must write because you love writing because you love creating new worlds. If you are good, the rest will happen on its own.
