Trishna Damodar

Let’s get you introduced to everyone, shall we?!

Hi, I’m Trishna Damodar. I started my career as a hotelier. When circumstances demanded a change in life, all the paths led me to writing. I am a firm believer in the mantra, ‘love can heal all’. Love to travel, spend time with my family (they are my rock and inspiration). I take joy in the simple things in life. I believe, I am a human being first and foremost, before any of the ‘categories’ such as gender/nationality/caste seek to divide our being.

 What prompted you to pursue a career as a writer?

I began writing in the form of poetry and quotes. Words seemed to web their way into my thoughts, and I felt more at peace once they were out on paper. I feel a sense of joy and peace while creating new characters and stories, and once I was hooked, that was it for me. I felt I had found my calling.

Do you have any special writing habits?

Nothing extraordinary. I only need to be alone, and have silence while writing, for my thoughts to evolve, and reach their full potential.

 When you write a new book, do you already have the whole story in mind or do you elaborate it along the way?

I tend to have a rough idea of the initial plot. As I write, I let the characters and the story take the lead.

 In your opinion what is the best book you have written? What’s your favourite book ever?

Currently I feel my story telling skills in ‘Amma and I‘, are quite good. Although, I have so many more stories to pen down, and it won’t be fair to play favourite as ultimately every story had a unique purpose and intent. My favourite read so far has been, ‘Harry. Potter’. The magical realm, story, and narration had me spell bound.

 How do you feel after writing a book?

Exhilarated yet sad at the same time as a journey comes to an end.
