AUTHOR, MUSICIAN AND BUSINESSMAN, MOSES TALKS ABOUT HIS MOTIVATING BOOKS.
Being a writer comes from different reasons, for you, is being a writer a gift or just something that anyone can do?
I believe that writing is what anyone can do. It doesn’t have to be a gift, it only needs hard work, a lot of research and being clued up on what happens around us, life in general, being observant and open minded finding broad information and not limiting yourself.
What gives you inspiration for your books?
Simply motivating people, helping them mend their relationships, focus on their goals and live happy lives.
Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
I could say finding the right headings for chapters, you always want it to be great and interesting.
Now, I’m throwing this one in for our aspiring writers. Did you come across any specific challenges in writing NOT EASY BUT POSSIBLE? What would you do differently the next time?
Yes there were certain times I found it hard as I wrote about reality, what happens on a daily basis in people’s lives , at times I would listen to people’s Problems and I had to sit down and try to come with solutions, the most difficult part is to try and come up with a solution.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
To be a greater being and motivator than I was yesterday, striving to be the best whatever the challenges may be.
LETS FIX IT is quite loved by many young adults, how did you come up with the idea for the publication?
I used to update statuses on Facebook about relationships, marriages and life in general and one of my followers just said ” why don’t you just write a book” and looking back on all my everyday updates they could fill up a book, that’s when I went along with the idea.
When you develop subject matters, do you already know what you will emphasise on before you begin writing or do you let everything develop as you go?
I sit first and brainstorm, so by the time I start writing I already know what I will emphasize on.
We live in a country whereby many young people feel failure is the main thing holding them from prosperity. According to you, what is failure?
Failure is nothing than a learning curve that shows you to do it with a different approach the next time.
Who are your favourite authors?
Steve Harvey and Chinua Achebe.
Have you written any other books that are not published?
Not at the moment as I am concentrating on my music career at the moment and the release of an album this year.
What do you think about the eBook revolution?
It is a great and exciting revolution, especially for upcoming and unknown authors.
What has been the best compliment to you as an author?
“You have saved my relationship” and “I am stronger than I was before because of you, your writing keeps me going”. This is what I get most of the time, then I know I am on the right track.
If you could have been the author of any book ever written, which book would you choose?
Act like a lady, think like a man, Steve Harvey is great Author and it is a great book indeed.
What advice can you give to someone who’d love to be a writer?
START NOW, be creative, think broad, research and read different books you will be surprised how it will develop you in different aspects of life.
