Meet Young Aarthi Sreenivasan - Author of Incredibly Incorrect Impressions

Today we have Aarthi Sreenivasan with us to discuss her book "Incredibly Incorrect Impressions".


Hi Aarthi. Welcome to our blog. We would like to thank you for giving us time. Before we proceed towards your book, can you brief our readers about you. 

Can you tell us your educational background?
I am pursuing an Undergraduate degree in Journalism and Mass Communication. 
What were you like at school/college apart from studies? 
VERY talkative and fond of debates. 
What are some day jobs you have held?
Does daydreaming count? (No, haven’t held any, sorry).
Which author inspire you the most? 
I love reading. Some of the authors who inspire me are Jane Austen, JK Rowling, PG Wodehouse. George RR Martin, Agatha  Christie, James Patterson, Scott Fitzgerald. 
Tell us about your about writing career. When did you start writing? 
The first piece I ever wrote was a one page story, in grade 3. 
When did you decide to become a writer? 
Grade 3. Some wanted to sing, some wanted to dance, I wanted to sit at home and write stories which made no sense. 
What are your ambitions for your writing career? 
I want to write something, which makes someone’s day feel better than it was before they started reading my work. 
How is your day structured to accommodate your writing? 
Writing is unpredictable with me. I might write for hours, or not write at all.  So, understandably, my entire day, when I write, is a chaotic mess. 



Can you describe your current book - "Incredibly Incorrect Impressions" in few lines? What’s it about? 
It is about a person in her late teens to early 20s, with the fears and insecurities of someone who feels the need to make changes, blessed (almost unfortunately) with a terrible sense of humor. Friendship. Humor. Ambition. Family. Love. That’s what this book is all about. 
Give us an insight into your main character.
Aishwarya Narayan, is the kind of girl you would find roaming about your neighborhood, maybe immersed in an interesting book. She is feisty, awkward, horribly funny and has, like every other person, insecurities about her shortcomings and her fears. She’s warm and earnest in her relationships, which is something many people would be able to connect with. 
Where did you get idea for this book? 
Pride and Prejudice was the first literary fiction I had read, apart from mysteries and fantasies. The wit of Elizabeth, the intelligent conversations, the cynical narrative of society, was too good to not be inspiring. 
How much research did you do for this book? 
I had to learn the ways to write a narrative which wouldn’t completely bore the reader. I n a way, I had to fit in random trivia, to show that the narrator too, has a human instinct to them, ie, they get distracted. Bringing in realism to narration took some time. 
Who is your favorite character in your book and why?
I like all of them. 
What was the most difficult thing about writing your latest book? 
Some elements of the narrator was from some of my personal viewpoints of life. Now that took quite a bit of time to get out. 
When your book is planned to release?
Tentatively end of October. 
What are you working on at the minute? 
A fantasy one. 
What are your thoughts on writing a book series? 
I hope the next one I write would be a part of one. 
We are almost done. Before we finish, we would like to know about your experience with Lead Start as Publishing house? 
It was pretty good! Kudos to them for trusting a fledgling teenage author. 
What advice would you give to aspiring writers? 
Please write. Good or bad, cringe-worthy or not, only writing more would make you better. That and reading. 
Is there anything else you would like to add that I haven’t included? 
No, you’re really thorough.
