Interview with Pragati Sidana (Foodforsoul13)
Today we have a budding writer or some might say a Poetess with us, Pragati Sidana sole admin of Foodforsoul13 Instagram account. Her profile suggests that she is a weird girl with even weirder thoughts. I’ve known her for more than a couple of years now, and I think she is a very sweet and charming girl and she is not weird at all. 😜
So, I asked her a few questions on, how her journey has been on Instagram until now. It’s been less than a year, and she is doing pretty well. Let’s jump straight on to the questions.
So Pragati, How is to be a raw writer amongst the thousands of other Indian writers on Instagram?
To be very honest, I didn’t know there were so many people who are into writings until last August when I started my page on Instagram. I was on Instagram before but didn’t know about the writers much.
And sometimes I feel like people are joining writing community not because they are a writer, or they wanna be a writer but they are doing it under peer pressure. But it’s my opinion I can’t tell much.
When did you get to know that you were in love with words?
I was 11 years old; I had a diary because I had a hobby of writing but not anything fancy just some memories. I used to note them down so I don’t forget any moments in my life. But one day I was sitting in my cupboard (my favorite place to write) and I wrote a poem, I lost that diary but I still remember few lines from my first poem.
Do you search for difficult words or synonyms in order to make your post look good?
Duh, yeah I do. There are people with such fancy lines that I sometimes don’t even understand their post.
What are your future plans? Are you planning on taking a step forward and writing a book?
I was writing a book but somehow I am not doing it right now. But yeah in future I will write a book. I have a story but I don’t think so it’s good enough to get published. So till then, I am going to read a lot so that I will create a beautiful piece.
Do you try to follow other people in order to gain followers on Instagram?
I don’t but I let a script do that for me, I am clever ain’t I?
