Easterine didn’t take very long to finish this book as she writes incessantly until the story comes out in its full form!

The write choice

“However, I let it lie for many months before returning to it. Then, of course, the editing and revising and cross checking of cultural practices, names, etc. took some more months to complete,” she says.

Speaking about her writing process, Easterine says: “When I start a new book, I write for days together. I focus on a single book until the story is resolved. After that, I usually move on to other books and return to the new book with new eyes to revise or edit. I have learnt to give spaces for the story to breathe and take on its own personality before I go back to it.”

Amongst regional writers, she likes Janice Pariat, Robin Ngangom and Dhruba Hazarika along with a whole crop of brilliant younger writers.

“I want to read them all, as they will all become favourites,” she says.

As of now, Easterine is working on a few projects, none of which she chooses to name!
