#Quoted: Good story ideas seem to come from…

Let's get one thing clear right now, shall we? There is no Idea Dump, no Story Central, no Island of the Buried Bestsellers; good story ideas seem to come quite literally from nowhere, sailing at you right out of the empty sky: two previously unrelated ideas come together and make something new under the sun....

#Quoted: Remember…

Neil Gaiman's writing is awe-spiring. His stories give a reader much food for thought. There has never been a time when I have been disappointed with his books and that is simply because he knows what a reader seeks. He always explores different storylines with distinct character sketches for the protagonists, always. I can write... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: Start being a writer…

I have met many people in this lifetime who've wanted to do a lot of things, who've wanted to be a lot of different things then they are right now. The spark that lights up their eyes when they talk of things they want to do is simply astonishing. I wonder if they've ever seen... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: Write about what disturbs you…

Hello, readers! I have returned from a week of a perfectly wonderful holiday; speaking of the places I had the chance to visit, and a perfectly horrid one; speaking of the transport troubles. I shall be posting about my experience soon enough. What can I say? I missed you guys and all the writing that... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: Write even when you don’t want to…

We grew up reading Agatha Christie. Some of her tales have been etched in our memories like they were things that happened yesterday. She was damn good and there's not a freckle of doubt about it. Looking back, thinking of all her books I've read, one thing that stands out in my memory is the... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: What are you going to write about?

Here comes a stunner of a quote from none other than King. And just how this one has always always rescued me, has made this one of my all-time favorite writing quotes. It is from King's memoir 'On Writing' that I read a few years ago and that just reminds me it is time I... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: After writing a story…

In writing, sleeping over is an act of kindness. Be merciful toward your drafts and give yourself the freedom to think twice before you hit 'publish'.  You never know what magic might unveil out of a draft, a story, or a poem, you've slept over. Catch you soon, dear reader. Happy writing, till we meet... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: Writing is as close as we get…

Writing is about what we feel and what we don't. What we say and what we don't. What we love and what we don't. There is not one thing we can't write about. When we can't write, we may as well be writing about that. There's merit in that too. Everything shapes your writing. But... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: Some things are hard to write about…

Whoever said writing is easy! It's child's play, eh? And yet the greatest writers in history agree that the blank page has almost always got the good of them. Writing isn't a piece of cake; especially not when you write about things that had rather never happened to you. A bad memory is like a... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: Writer’s block is a fancy term…

What do you think is Writer's Block? Despite a most refreshing and engaging debate, we still have our doubts around it being real or not. I published an article recently voicing out the thoughts of some genius minds. In this article, we dissected what Writer's Block is and the best ways to tackle it. But it's a... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: A Good Novel…

While wondering what to read next after I have finished 'The Snow Child', I have zeroed in on some titles as these 'Heretics' by G. K. Chesterton, 'In Arabian Nights' by Tahir Shah and 'Like Death' by Guy de Maupassant. I might probably begin with 'Heretics'. The first book I read from the Prince of... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: A scrupulous writer…

Eric Arthur Blair, popularly known by his pen name 'George Orwell' has been amongst my favorite authors. But we all love George Orwell, don't we? I was introduced to his works when I first read 'Animal Farm' and how, I love that book! Orwell was one writer who believed that in writing, our choice of... Continue Reading →
