Why did you decide to be engaged exactly in this activity? Tell about it.

I consider myself a person with a multifaceted character, I do several things professionally. But if we talk specifically about writing, I see it as an opportunity to inform the reader about various topics, as well as to grow and develop, exploring and acquiring new knowledge.

 

Does your profession have advantages or disadvantages?

The advantages of writing can be listed endlessly, for example, it helps both me and the reader in solving problems, it allows acquiring knowledge and share them, and it even helps to relax and reduce stress. On the downside, I think that it is the impossibility to address discuss delicate issues such as religion and gender diversity since these topics happen to be the cause of controversy very often.

 

What was the first obstacle you faced?

When I first started writing articles, I did not always manage to express my thoughts concisely. But gradually, without realizing it, I perfected this skill and reading other more experienced authors really helped me in this. I tried to follow the style that I thought was best for a particular topic, and I also tried to use the appropriate figure of speech.

 

When did you get your first results? What were they?

I got my first positive results when I was in high school. I have always had the best marks for essays, and teachers often asked me if adults were helping me write these texts. It was so nice to answer this question in the negative!

 

When did you feel a breakthrough? What was it like? Describe your emotions.

This happened when I heard positive feedback about my texts, not only from teachers, as I mentioned above, but also from my friends and family. They praised me and said that my writings bring something positive into their lives. Knowing that you are helping people by doing what you really like is an invaluable feeling.

 

How much time do you spend on your work?

I spend about one hour to writing articles, because, as I mentioned earlier, only imagination and basic knowledge are not enough to write a quality article. You need to spend a lot of time to study the topic. No one will want to read your articles if you write about everything that comes to mind without supporting arguments or, even worse, if you give false information in your articles, unless you, of course, do not write scripts for science fiction or mini-stories, which is also very exciting, but that's another story.

 

What advice helped you to find a way out of difficult situations?

The most useful advice about difficult situations that I was given usually came from my family, and most often from my wife. For example, never give up and always look for a solution, no matter how difficult it may be, and think outside the box. This advice has helped me to find peace after another storm.

 

Haven’t you got disappointed in your profession? Did you want to change your sphere?

If there is one thing I am sure of, it is that I will never be able to stop doing what has brought me so much pleasure, joy, and experience. On the other hand, I would certainly be disappointed if I wrote for someone special, and this person would not appreciate my work or would say that it is written terribly.

 

Do you think that a man can achieve success only in one sphere of activity?

I think it depends very much on the person and his goals in life. Personally, I believe that you can succeed in anything you want. The main thing is commitment and discipline. A good example of is Bruce Dickinson, lead singer of Iron Maiden band. He is an honorary doctor of science in music, businessman, professional swordsman, pilot, history teacher, producer, screenwriter and, plus, the man who beat throat cancer.

 

What would you be able to give up your business for?

To be honest, I wouldn't be able to give up this business, because even if I stopped getting paid for it, it would still be more than just a job, it's a passion, and it's for life.
