Full EF Talk Interview with @theonlykika, one of the authors of <i>Cemburu Itu Peluru</i>
EF_EnglishFirst: Hi @theonlykika! Hope you are great :) Q1: How many books have you published so far?
Theonlykika: 2 books, "ber317an", a self-published book, and "Cemburu itu Peluru".
EF_EnglishFirst: A talented new writer! Q2: Who are the writers of "Cemburu Itu Peluru"?
Theonlykika: It's a collaboration of 5 writers from @fiksimini community: @LVCBV, @Oddie, @erdiANaJI, @AndyTantono, and me.
EF_EnglishFirst: 5 writers? Wow interesting! Q3: How did you come up with the idea of such a nice collaboration?
Theonlykika: @fiksimini is a twitter-based writing community, but we do connected in real-life too :) The idea was coming from @erdiANaJI, from a supernite talk after a gathering in Jakarta. It's a collaboration of @fiksimini-ers from Jkt, Sby, and Bdg. We want to share the passion of writing. We want to show that writing is fun, everyone can write, and literature is a part of modern lifestyle.
EF_EnglishFirst: Now let's move to Q4: What's the idea behind the book, @theonlykika?
Theonlykika: We want to share that idea is everywhere, and even from the smallest simplest thing. We also want to show that mini can be maxi too! Short but punching, both heart and mind :)
EF_EnglishFirst: A combination of mini and maxi is just cute :D Move on to Q5: What are the main topics of the book? Love story?
Theonlykika: Love? Haha! Not just about that. Also about God, social problems, emotional twist, and others. Some satirical, comedy, also thriller. We want to capture life, the color and the taste. Twisting mind! :p
EF_EnglishFirst: Colorful stories indeed! Now Q6 is from @ruthsinta: What's your favorite story in the book?
Theonlykika: Ah! I love all! :p My favorite is Lelaki di Atap Malam by @Oddie, also "unique" writing of @erdiANaJI. From my own writing, I like Baby Blues, Dispenser Rasa, and the fiksimini of Senyummu di Pigora @ruthsinta.
EF_EnglishFirst: Q7 is from @EttyMenjes: Where did you find inspirations to write your stories?
Theonlykika: Every simple thing, from criminal news, film, friend stories, songs, to my personal experience. But my main interest is human pschycology, human twisted mind, and I tend to exagerate things! :p
EF_EnglishFirst: Haha don't we all? :p Lastly Q8 from @signorinaKaRa: How do you overcome difficulties in writing? I often got stuck!
Theonlykika: Writer's block? Take a break, a deep breath. Do things that you like, shopping or hangout with friends will do. Ideas are there. Around you. They're dying to be picked! Open your eyes, and heart too. Reading books help, but in a process of writing fiction, I avoid reading other writer, to keep my originality.
EF_EnglishFirst: And that was an interesting #EFTalk with @theonlykika, one of the authors of "Cemburu Itu Peluru". Thank you so much for your time, Kika!
