Just like most of the authors, he too got exposed to the idea of writing at an early age. But, he didn’t take it seriously until he graduated from college and began working as a receptionist. Every call he received had a rude person at the other end and every day his hatred for the job grew bigger. Barres realized he needed to do something that would make him happy. It didn’t take him long to realize that thing was writing. As a reader, Barres likes paperbacks more than any other format. He has a habit of writing things in his books while reading. So, he is more comfortable with paperbacks. While writing a story, Barres prefers writing with both pen & paper and computer, but mostly he works on a computer because he feels that writing by hand makes it hurt after some time and he hates it very much.
