To blog or not to blog?

Blogging. Not everyone's cup of tea, eh? It takes your life blood and sweat and what not. To start is not easy, to keep going is even tougher. But you know what the good news is? You’ve kicked aside the biggest boulder – apprehensions - and now the road’s easy to go! Nothing will prick... Continue Reading →

Writing Styles for Writers

And it's 2 months down already. Can you believe it? Anyway! It's been a while I wrote about 'what are writing styles' and I won't shy away from confessing that I'd totally forgotten about the follow-up post I'd promised to do. Nevertheless, here I am. Previously we discussed how it is important to have a writing style... Continue Reading →

Wordseduction

A paroxysm to sire. A wanderlust, a desire. Soledad, I come home. Wish for a glass of Merlot and dream of Rome ♥ Following my mind, you pull me close ‘Leave behind the mires’, you urge me so.  ♥ In the dark of the room, you lead me on. Tease me, seduce me, on the desk, then... Continue Reading →

On Writing Styles

Let me tell you something. As a kid, I wasn’t particularly fussy, but yet someone with peculiar tastes. God bless my mother, how she put up with my myriad moods is a mystery to me.  It was many years later that I was going to learn about Wilde’s popular and my mantra for life –... Continue Reading →

What is Poetry?

What is poetry? I know not. I’m a mere amateur trying to be someone. Mind you, not like someone. Poetry, to me is elusive. I know about poetry just as much a new-born knows about the wide vast world. It’s an ocean to me, and I try swimming across, trying to reach somewhere. With words... Continue Reading →

The Good Writer & The Bad Writer

Is there such a thing as a good or a bad writer? I have battled with this thought in my head for quite too long. I think it’s time to unleash my thoughts! As a writer, I have experienced that newbies in writing are always chased by an incessant thought – they are not good... Continue Reading →

On Writing Schedules

Why is a writing schedule essential? I had never given this much thought. Been blogging for 5 years now and yet, I've never had a writing schedule. I sometimes feel as though I’m missing something. And so I decided to blog about it. A schedule in any exercise is all about discipline; discipline that makes you... Continue Reading →

To all ye writers…

Revisiting my earlier days, I recollect how blog awards were quite a deal. I always felt, it totally justified, to have the efforts of bloggers, rewarded. After all, this is our won little world. We live a distinct life here; different than the one we live in the real world. We are somewhat 'more we' here, as I... Continue Reading →

What writing takes…

I love to read. Not because I am a writer. But because there is no better teacher. Reading always gives me new ways to write. Opens new windows with better perspectives. Last week I finished reading Jhumpa Lahiri's latest book 'In Other Words'. She is one writer I look up to when I need inspiration. If... Continue Reading →

Commemoration

Shallow aspirations, masked apprehensions, callow words, stories told. ♥ Trials or tribulations, finessed or artless, but naivety is better than regrets, experience does teach that. ♥ It's time to celebrate, the victory of words, over mindless reservations, and mundane adversities. ♥♥♥ Asha's Blog completed 4 years today. ♥♥♥ The beginning was harrowing. But could it be... Continue Reading →

Want more blog traffic? Here’s the trick!

Who doesn’t want more readers? We might say, I do it for self-satisfaction, for thought-liberation, to improve the language, or create worded memories. Right and agreed. But has anyone ever felt they don’t much care about having an audience? Having an audience to appreciate your work never hurt anyone. As writers, all of us crave... Continue Reading →

A writer’s anxiety

As a writer, it makes me anxious to not know exactly where I'm headed with my writing. Most times, I have no clear view of where I am going. It’s like walking in a tunnel with no end. It leaves me in a haze. Do such thoughts bother you too? Whatever is your big aim – to be... Continue Reading →
