Kritika’s Questions

1. Do you search for difficult words in your writing? like I do. I have to search for meaning.

I don’t think almost at all when I am writing, so I don’t search for anything. I am the kind of writer who has an idea and writes it up like a flow. In fact, if I stop and think, I lose my flow.  

2. What do you prefer tea or coffee? any specific flavor, please mention the same.

Well, I am Turkish, so I am bound to like tea (black tea). But since I moved to the US, I have become fond of coffee as well. I am kind of basic, though. I like black coffee and cappuccino. 

3. Most of the time, I am found writing while walking to and fro in my room, on my phones notepad. Do you like writing on phones or tablets or laptops?

I always write on my laptop:)

4. Where would you like to live, if not the current country?

I think right now, I missed my home country, Turkey. So, I would like to come back for a while:)

5. How many books do you have in your own library?

Not much. I got rid of everything when I moved to the US and decided not to pack on anything anymore (because it is difficult when I move). So, I usually read on my phone or laptop now. (Also, admittedly, I don’t read as much as I should)

6. Have you participated in any protests for any social cause? Which one and why?

The last one I participated in was the Women’s March in the US two years ago. 

7. A motivating line of your own, if this was an award given to you on stage.

Mental health and happiness before all. 

8. What genre do you prefer in movies?

I like movies that focus on a character, which is why Jake Gyllenhall is my favorite actor. Most of his movies are character-based. My favorite movie is Prisoners because there are two characters focused on:)

9. Are you a bathroom singer?

Nope. Never. 

10. How do you spend your Sunday?

I usually take a rest on Saturdays, so Sunday is my start-getting-to-work day. So, I start studying for my stuff on Sunday, but not too much (kind of like warm-up). But I also do cleaning, laundry etc. 

11. Do you like watching TV? What do you prefer watching?

Nope. I don’t think I willingly watched TV in the last several years until the last few weeks (unless I was with other people and they watched it). But there is a Turkish TV show that I liked recently. So, now I watch it only one evening a week.
