“Writing is a kind of revenge against circumstance too: bad luck, loss, pain. If you make something out of it, then you’ve no longer been bested by these events.” ― Louise Glück
Fierce women in fiction have always fascinated me. Especially those struggling against patriarchy. One such book I recently read was In The City of Clouds by Sweta Rani. The female protagonist in this book left me inspired, despite her many flaws.
Here’s my short review of the book.
After reading it, I reached out to the author asking her if she would be my guest on the #AuthorCollaborative. Before we got on to conversing about our books and writing, she read Love (Try) Angle and here’s what she had to say about it.
Today evening, we got on Instagram live together, and discussed everything that we possibly could, about our books.
My set of questions to Sweta were the following:
Among other things, Sweta wanted to know about my books and writing too. So her questions focused mainly on these things.
After an informative and exhaustive discussion on women in fiction, writing about patriarchy, and other exhilarating topics, we went on to the rapid fire round.
The fun went on as Sweta fired her questions on me as well.
It was an informative and fun session that helped me learn a few things about fiction writing.
