How long did it take you to write 701 Life Lessons?

The writing process for 701 Life Lessons was an ongoing one that started from my early youth. The collection and compilation of life lessons took several years to complete. However, the final formatting, editing, and design of the book cover took approximately 1 and a half years to complete. The culmination of this lifelong journey is a book that I am proud to share with others, offering lessons, wisdom, and inspiration to all who read it.

Did anything stick out as particularly chllenging when writing 701 Life Lessons?

As a writer, there are several obstacles that can come in the way of producing quality work. The first obstacle is finding the time to write, especially when balancing a full-time job. It can be difficult to set aside dedicated time for writing, especially when faced with other responsibilities and commitments.

Another common obstacle is losing motivation. Writing can be a challenging and demanding process, and it's easy to lose sight of the end goal when faced with writer's block or other creative challenges.

Finally, impatience can also be an obstacle in the writing process. Writing often requires patience and persistence, and it can be tempting to give up or rush the process when faced with obstacles or setbacks.

These obstacles can be difficult to overcome, but they are not insurmountable. With dedication, determination, and a willingness to persevere, it is possible to overcome these challenges and produce meaningful, impactful writing.

What do you like to do when not writing?

When I am not writing, I am focused on my full-time career as an engineer and am currently pursuing a second master's degree. With my demanding schedule, I have limited free time, but I cherish the moments that I can dedicate to my passion for writing. Writing is an important part of my life and I make it a priority whenever I have the opportunity.
