Interview with C. Phillip, author of The Last Nautch Girl
Day 21 of #WritingCommunityChallenge (August Instagram Challenge) - Interview your writing buddy!
It is sometimes hard for writers to end a story. How did you come up with such a great ending?
The story ending of The Last Nautch Girl was very very tough for me. I rewrote it multiple times until I was satisfied. I watched a lot of films based on the Indian freedom struggle. I did a lot of research online & offline regarding fight scenes and story endings. Finally, I focused on two things. First, the secret area of the Gold House must be a part of the ending. Second, all characters & story lines must converge & interact with each other. That’s when everything fell into place.
I am having a hard time with my timeline. Do you have any tips or recommendations?
There is much talk about how to name chapters. Do you use the chapter titles as part of your plotting process?
Were there any persons that inspired your characters? Historical or otherwise?
How do you like to read? Audiobooks, paper, hardback, or e-reader?
Do you have any advice for new writers on overcoming writer's block?
