Abdullah Interviews Abdullah Al-Mudhaf
Friday is here again with its utmost blessings as always. That, along with a brand new interview from another highly talented Kuwaiti.
I’v always seen whats good in the country, talents wise. On p0ach, I have been blessed to have all kinds of genres to cover from local talents that represent what inspiration is. They represent light and the core of creativity. They are all kind enough to share their experience with us all.
Today’s guest is none other than the highly talented writer Mr.Abdullah Ghazi Al-Mudhaf. I have contacted him and he’s been nothing but a breeze of easiness to deal with. Extremely polite, down to earth with a wonderful spirit.
He has written many Arabic novels that were instant hits, grab mania, shelve shakers in most book stores including Virgin megastore. Since he’s rooted in the core of Kuwaiti society, its no wonder that he’ll tackle social issues mixed with novel magic, romantic escapism & reality slaps in his own point of view. His radio show does not hurt either on Marina FM.
Get to know my guest, show him love !
Abdullah speak !
My Name is Abdullah Ghazi Al-Mudhaf, Im 25 years old. Graduated from Gulf University for Science and Technology with a Bachelor Degree in International Business. I work in my family’s business. My main interests are reading, sports, and traveling but my main passion goes for writing. I loved to write since childhood and my writing would consist of things that i’ve learned and experienced in my life.
How did you tap into your writing experience. what inspired you ?
i’ve learned that reading is one of the most important sources to fulfill a writer’s knowledge. I’ve read many books that consists of different topics that gave me the information i needed as a writer. Reading can widen a writers imagination, inspires him, and improves his ability to learn new things. I believe that in order to write well, you need to read.
Elaborate more about your work, your social take.
Every piece of work I start usually begins from an idea, I have a group of ideas and messages I want to share it with the people around me. And throughout my experiences in life and the people I’ve knew either kuwaitis or arabs in general I’ve learned that they never like direct criticism. Therefore, I used my talent as a writer to send my ideas and messages in an indirect way throughout my writings. Every book or writing i did had a message to be delivered or
an idea to spreaded to the people.
For example, my novel asheq mahzoom had carried a well known problem of the differences society levels and marriage in kuwait. Also, my other novel al montathar criticised the behavior of the members of parliament in kuwait and the politics in general.Habebty dayman mainly focused o the parents lack of responsibility towards their children and their family.
So how does all of that come together ? putting up a book and all ?
It generally starts by adapting an issue or a special idea that you want to discuss throughout the book, the second step would be creating characters and spread them according to the plot. The most difficult part is the first draft because its mainly the major part of the process. I’ll then start updating the draft and change the small parts and get to the second draft, and show it to my friends and family. In my new book “al sahra al akhira” that will be released on may, 2010 have been updated and changed for about 6 or 7 times. After finishing all these steps and writing the book, I’ll start getting license process from the ministry of information.
Your support system ?
If there is one thing im lucky in is that I have a very supportive family, especially Mustafa & Yousef my brothers that have stood by me and helped me throughout my life. Also, my friends share a very big part in my life and I always have their support.
Throw something for p0ach.com readers !
One of the hardest thing for a person is finding himself and find what motivates him. I would definately advise every person to find his passion and go for it and creates himself to what might benefits him and his country, because I believe that all kuwaities are motivated and all they need is confidence.
I would like to thank Abdullah for this interview and for his hard work in the amazing blog.
