I had the pleasure of interviewing Mirii Miryam, an Assistant Medical Doctor, and the Global PRO for Motivational Strips, Associates, and Affiliates, the world's most active Writers' Forum.
You are a Medical doctor. Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I come from a poor family.
My parents educated me to respect and appreciate the little I have and the little I have to give to other people.
I learned that you are happy and loved when you give love to others.
In 1985, my mother was diagnosed with right breast cancer.
From that moment I decided to study medicine.
How did you get started on your writing journey?
Writing and reading were always my pastimes. I like to read a variety of books, especially books written about people’s lives.
I read and love three books written by Author Brenda Mohammed: – Stories People Love, I am Cancer Free, and How to Write for Success.
I also read Katashi Tales and The Ghost Wisdom written by Shiju H Pallithazheth.
They were all inspirational and motivated me to write.
Are there any poets or writers who influenced you?
Yes. Author Brenda Mohammed, Author Shiju H Pallithazheth, and other authors encouraged me in my poetry writings, and I thank them for their support.
Are you a member of any Literature Forums and how have they influenced you?
I am the Administrator and PRO of How to Write for Success Literary Forum of which Brenda Mohammed is the Founder.
The forum has three sub-forums: Poems for Suicide Prevention, Poems Against Domestic Violence, and Library of how to Write for Success.
I am also the Global PRO for Motivational Strips, Associates, and Affiliates, the world’s most active writers’ forum, of which the Founder is Shiju H Pallithazheth.
Being associated with such successful forums with the world’s best writers, I was influenced to start writing.
I had the opportunity to be a co-author in two best-selling Anthologies spear-headed by the Founder of How to Write for Success. They are A Spark of Hope Volume 2: A Treasury of Poems for Saving Lives from Suicide, and Break the Silence, An Anthology Against Domestic Violence. I was thrilled when both books topped the charts on Amazon to become bestseller No 1.
Do you have plans to write a novel or a poetry book?
I have in my program to write the book of my life. It will be about my poor childhood.
If you wrote such a book who do you think would like such a book and what kind of readership would you be aiming for?
It will be available for all age groups.
What is the message you will be trying to get across in your book?
I would like this book to encourage people to face life with their heads held high, even if they are poor.
Do you have any advice for writers?
This is the message I have for writers:
Literature must be respected.
Literature is not a business.
Literature is sacred.
Literature has been written for centuries
Literature is written from generation to generation
Literature must be respected and honored.
It must not be mocked by uneducated people.
What are your social accounts if people want to connect with you?
I have a Facebook page.
