Techgoss, a tech news portal, has a rather long interview of me. It is so long and comprehensive, I should copy most of it and use it for my ‘about’ page!
TG: For someone coming from a tech background, to delve into writing, how was the acceptance by editors of various magazines? How did you face rejections (if any) and how did you grapple with that?
AB: No one ever asked me about my background; I guess it doesn’t matter much as long as you can weave a good story. The hard part was always to get an editor to listen to you and have them read your story. The next step is not so much hard as the first step; so rejections did happen but [were] few and far apart. As far as I know, few travel writers really face rejections. If you have managed to get an editor to say ‘send me the story,’ it is like a battle nearly won.
