This is the interview of Yogita Warde, Indian women entrepreneur and author of Saahi & Sudheer, Diya and Post Card ( Every life has a lesson). Let’s learn more about her inspirational journey and her advice for our growing community!
Tell us a little about yourself
Yogita Warde: My name is Yogita Warde. I’m an author. I was born in a small village of Madhya Pradesh named Shujalpur. I started living in Vadodara after marriage.
Three books of mine had already been published, I wrote all of them in my native language Hindi. Also, all of them had been translated to English and have been published as well.
I always had a fond of writing and just like one day I thought why not to convert my thoughts into a book. So, that’s how my journey started and till it had reached to 3 books.
Some of my articles also appeared in magazines and newspapers. I have also received ‘Litfest 2020 Author of the year’ award for my book ‘Diya’ and the ‘Tagore Commemorative Honouree Award 2021’. Everyone’s love and support inspires me every day to write more and more.
When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
Yogita Warde: It always happens that everything is going well in our life and we have everything we want. But we also feel something is missing.
I realized it when I was playing all the roles of my life very well, a wife; mother to two children and having a beautiful family, but I still always felt that I was missing out something in my life.
I always loved writing and my pen fulfilled this dream of mine and from here only my one journey ended and another journey started.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
Yogita Warde: The first time when I consider myself as a writer was the moment when I held my first book ‘Saahi& Sudheer’. That was the most precious moment of my life. As it was from that moment when my journey as writer started.
How many books have you written?
Yogita Warde: Till now I’ve written three books. My first book ‘Saahi & Sudheer’ is a love story, the second book ‘Diya’ was an inspiration from a real life story and my third book ‘Post Card: Every life has a lesson’ is collection of stories of people’s struggle.
All the three books are also available in English. And soon my fourth book ‘Cooker Ki Seeti’ will be released under FlyDreams Publications.
In this book every story is based on the Lockdown situation. Every story in that book was written in the form of play, this book is presentation of my love for theatre.
What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?
Yogita Warde: We don’t have enough time to do things what we like, but if you really determined towards it then you surely force yourself to take out some time for it.
A woman has the responsibility of both her work and her family. I take out 2-3 hours from my schedule to write and some more time to read.
How long does it take you to write a book?
Yogita Warde: It took me 3 months to complete my first book. And almost I completed the other books in the same time. But, I took only 14 days to complete my fourth book ‘Cooker Ki Seeti’. This is the only book which was completed in such a less time span.
When did you write your first book?
Yogita Warde: I wrote my first book in 2018 and it’s first edition was published in 2019.
How do books get published?
Yogita Warde: Books get published in two ways. First is self publishing and the other one is Traditional publishing. In self publishing we have to get our book published on our own, where we have to spend our own money.
Whereas, in Traditional publishing you don’t have to spend any money, your story line should be strong. Here you can also publish your books on Amazon and Kindle free of cost without any extra charges.
What is the most difficult part about writing for you?
Yogita Warde: I barely face any difficulties while writing anything. I can write on any subject and I like to write something different. That’s how I’m currently writing a science fiction and I’m loving it.
The only difficulty I face while writing is to end a book. Because I feel stories never end, they still goes on even after finishing it. So, it is always difficult to give an end to a story.
What advice would you give new writers?
Yogita Warde: I only want to say that whatever you write, do it with your full attention and love. First make your book’s character alive then write on it, it will bring realness to the story.
Use simple language so that the reader base gets increased. Also, remember one thing, you can’t become Chetan Bhagat after writing just one book, you have to work a lot to get in that position.
And lastly, I would like to say that don’t give up, enhance yourself, work on your skills and make yourself better then you already are.
