#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....

A Tickling Tyranny

There's this craving that won't be satiated no matter what I did, no matter where I went. The soul seems seeking something I do not know. How can I look for something when I do not know what I am looking for? This feeling. It's weird. It's outlandish. And yet deeply familiar. Like it's meant... Continue Reading →

#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 →

Ramè

at every corner of every street there are leftovers of sweet memories I reach out scoop some in my palms they slip from between my fingers stare at me long a quick walk down the lane left behind rolling happily in the sands of time soon winds of past blow them all away I run... 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 →

वो भी क्या दिन थे …

वो भी क्या दिन थे जब लालच खिलौनों से ज़्यादा एक अठन्नी की होती थी जब उस एक अठन्नी से सारे बाजार की सैर मज़े से होती थी वो भी क्या दिन थे जब माँ से ज़्यादा पड़ोस की चाची के लड्डू अच्छे लगते थे जब पापा की डॉंट से बचाने दादाजी बहाने बना दिया... 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 →

Half-baked

#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 →
