Writing can be a freeing experience – it connects you with nature, brings you back to reality, and also gives you the freedom to dream. Today, we have Rinreichon Angkang, a student and passionate writer from Manipur, who recently launched her debut book ‘Blue is not one of her favorite colors.’ The book is a collection of short fictional stories and poems that explore various themes and emotions.
Rinreichon started writing by jotting down her thoughts and reading daily quotes on the “YourQuote” app, which inspired her to create her own stories and poems. In this interview, we will discuss her book, its themes, and what inspired her to write it.
We had a chat with Rinreichon Angkang from Manipur to discuss her recently released book ‘Blue is not one of her favorite colors’.
Hi Rinrei, please tell us a little about yourself.
Hello, I’m Rinreichon Angkang, 20 years old from Ukhrul, Manipur but I’m currently based in Shillong, Meghalaya pursuing my B.A final year at St. Mary’s College.
Tell us about your book ‘Blue is not one of her favorite colors’. And when was it launched?
‘Blue is not one of her favorite colors’ is a combination of a short fiction story and a collection of poems that reflects on man’s relationship with nature and poems to break away from the past and hold on to the new light. The book was published by the Notion Press Publisher on the 10th of April, 2019.

What initially sparked your interest in writing and what made you write this book?
After writing a few quotes in the ‘your quote’ app, I was more taken into the writing world through the daily challenges and the word of the day that keeps on ringing each day. The old books are mostly very thick and boring with words that may contain beautiful meanings yet most lazy readers give up on them before they even finish the book. This gives me an idea of my working style, it is a new kind of genre with some illustrations that will try to keep the pace and interest of the readers throughout the book.

Where do you draw inspiration from?
I was inspired by the people around me, nature, and the present society.
What do you hope people take away from your writings?
I hope that through my book I will be able to inspire the readers and motivate them to do all new things or to create something new and also help them find themselves and do the good things that will benefit society, nature, and themselves.
