Questionnaire with Lovita J R Morang
  1. How did you first get involved in with writing, are you an imaginative person?

I started scribbling poetries in my school days. Now have 25 anthologies of short stories and poetries, shared space with renowned and celebrated international poets like Ruskin bond to Gulzar.

My creative thoughts are the spirited-river that keep the fire in the wind flaming.Imagination is the sole gateway to realities.
Scripting for my films helped me in trans.creating, further into existential poetries and short- stories.
Yes, I can feel the spark, I can imagine as a child I used to consciously and unconsciously would observe my father writing.
Most of the time, when I gazed at him as a child of six-seven years. I see him writing. He loved writing and maintaining diaries.

2.       What do you find most challenging about your writing?

Challenges are the ingredients, the life-force of writing. Words tumble down, rushing like the torrential mountain rain, and it's the mountain rain that becomes the river. I find and discover and create words from this ocean of rivers.
These challenges are life-giving. Life nourishing experiences of love and longings and of belongs. 

3.       What do you do when you are not writing?

Once the writing is an addiction, I trust, it swallowed every space of the universe. Even if you are not typing or writing words. Mind and thoughts continue to write. It's a river that knows not how to not flow. And as a filmmaker, when I am making film, I trust is am writing on par, parallel. Call it "Parallel Writing ".

4.       Where do you see yourself in the next 6 months, and 5 years down the road?

A good artiste's evolution, metamorphosed into a good filmmaker, a poet and a writer and an unconditional lover of mankind.A beautiful life lived.

5.       How do you keep coming up with material/content for your story? 

The world I am, surrounded with are natural. It's the nature's power and the names of the trees, mountains, rivers, names of each beautiful people I encounter are the "organic contents" and plots in my story.

6.       Any specific tips you have for new writers who want to make it big in the world of published books?

Yes, life is a brilliant writer, we have not realized that we are not writing. Or not yet awakened to consciously and with consciences to take up the mighty Weapon-The Pen.cil. "A drop of ink makes a million think."  Hence, start thinking about the drop of ink, dear youngsters and aspiring writers.

7.       What’s the best thing a writer can give to his readers?

Stories and words that nourish their thoughts, mind, and life. Make them read life and start loving, start believing.

8.       A lot of people are interested in writing for the money earning potential. What are some tips for people interesting in making money from writing? What are some realistic expectations in regards to what can be made?

Money makes the world go round and words go around, beautifying, nourishing.Don't ever dare think that writers eat words. They also feel hungry and have mammoth responsibilities. 

I don't know yet how to earn money by writing books, by writing film scripts I have earned well. And I convert my writing into films, films into projects. And, my bank is balanced.I asked my fellow writers, about earning through writings. The reply is " good author need to be a good bookseller too"And, I don't see myself as a bookseller.  But yes, my writings have kept my love alive. 

No matter, people may not read your writings but creative world hardly survives in a lower dimensional world of thought. I didn't mean. One need to be an intellectual. Intellectual can be pseudo. But I trust every human being are born intelligent. Their intelligence needs to be nourished or else it wanes.

The journey of money making through writing.  I trust the writer ought to know the psyche of the market. If books need a market then mind should be prepared for the market.  Writers as"Market-oriented or mankind-oriented"

That depends on the psyche of the writer.where they desire to positioned themselves. Hold on the water, to stay calm or hold on the hat to get into the tricks of the trade.The economic game theory in terms of Literary pursuit. The question is do you desire to be the best seller writer/author or a merely celebrated author.

9.       What motivates you most in life?

Right from the origin of species to their survival. Everything that exists. The beauty in the interdependence of life-forces. The process of natural selection to conflict of contentiousness, intrigue me.
Everything that breathes motivates me, right from the breathing stones, to breathing, mountains to rivers. I could sense even deadness breathes that quite beautiful and motivating.Life is a perfect "good cinema", conceived, created, produced, directed by God.

10.   The majority of the readers tend to take sides due to religion and such other considerations.

Let the division bell rings appreciating the diversity of beauty. Be a lover of this magnificence creation.

11.   What is the story behind the name of your book?

It's all about love discovered throughout painstaking living yet it splits in the forks of the road. Take the high Road and drive safe, even if you are driving life on the right side. Turns and twists of roads are accident prone. My stories say if you have discovered roads of life. Be a good lover. Be a good driver. Drive away the evils. But mind you statutory warnings "evils are an important part of the pages, we may not be on the same page. 

12.   What are your views on increasing plagiarism?

my God! Where are you, so lost. You had to steal air to breathe. Nothing is all gone with the wind. You too have a heart. Don't give another heart attack. Create your own child. Give birth to your own child. If you cannot then, copyright fully get inspired and start writing.

Plagiarism is for plagued thoughts of plagued mind. Those who have beautiful mind would be inspired by great writers of the world. Like RabindranathTagore to Leo Tolstoy to Fyodor Dostoyevsky to Amartya Sen to Charles Dickinson.  Aren't the great writers of the world and the organic love of the universe enough to create your own book. Start now. Wake up in the morning and feel that life has just begun, hence, no copy and paste. Begin to write the original and be a product possessor and creator of the original copy.
