I have had the opportunity to interview a great Author and a man who understands OUR STRUGGLE.
In this interview you will be able to see through his words that he is much more than a writer, Author Ishaq Mumin is definitely someone you should know.
“EVOLUTION OF A G”
1. Since becoming an Author is it everything you have expected thus far?
No it is not anything like I expected. I never had any expectations but noticed that I must do some extraordinary self-promotion.
2. What changes are you making with your writing that is not seen today?
I have paid more attention to detail when I am describing places where events are taking place. Most books that I have read did not make it clear where the events where taking place. So I made it a point to mention the place where most of my story’s events had taken place.
3. Do you plan to write in other genres?
Actually I am making preparation to focus more on motivational writings that uplift and enlighten others. I believe that this is much more needed than fictional stories; nevertheless I had to try my hand in fiction.
4.Where do you see yourself in three years literary wise?
Sky is the limit, I also have somewhat of a legal background also and will look to get into writing about laws and how they affect certain segments of the population, and what role they play in one’s plight to become successful.
5. What inspired you to write?
I became inspired to write once I read books by W E.B. Dubois and J.L. Rogers, also writers like Dr. Amos Wilson and on a different note-Donald Goines. I also noticed the tasteless writing of a lot of our Urban Fiction writing and said to myself, I can definitely do better than this.
6. What are you currently working on?
I am currently working on my sequel to a trilogy called “The Evolution of a G”.
7. Where is your favorite place to write?
I tend to like to write in the library or in the Library on Campus. I need concentration and Peaceful surroundings to focus. Mostly, though I jot down pieces here and there wherever a theme or plot enters my mind. Most of my writing is pieced together and can look like a monologue for a movie script than a novel.
8.When writing do you outline first or just start writing and see where it goes?
Yes, Outlining is definite and then I can go into detail. I usually begin with the name of a chapter and then write the contents of that Chapter.
9. How many books do you plan on putting out in 2016?
I will put out 1-2 books-finish the trilogy. Then decide if it’s time to make that transition into motivational writing.
10. What else would you like us to know about you?
I am an activist that stands for the liberation of black people, descendants of former slaves.
I believe that our children should learn about the struggle that their ancestors went through and that which they will most definitely endure during their own journey on our planet and that they must learn with rapid speed, I advocate for that and any other oppressed people on our mother earth.
