#Quoted: One always has a better book in one’s mind…

What does that mean to you? Do you relate? As a writer. I sure do. But with some deviation. We have a thousand thoughts in our head at all times. When it comes to writing, everything appears jumbled the minute you have to streamline them. It is as good as a school PT drill where... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: You can’t wait for inspiration…

Writing is tedious process. It is rewarding but tedious. One can't deny that. It takes more than mere dedication and passion. Some days are dry. No ideas. No thoughts. Leading to no inspiration, ultimately. But persistence with consistency is the way ahead; if I may be allowed to say so. Inspiration may not come for days. It’s... Continue Reading →

#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: Read everything…

I like authors who lay emphasis on the importance of reading. Stephen King said the first thing he ever did was put out the television and get to the book. Ernest Hemingway was always reading. He would read almost everything he could lay his hands on. J K Rowling never read a book that didn't... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: Imagination is like a…

Hello, readers and writers! What are you up to? Enjoying the festive season or fretting over new year resolutions? Whichever has you by grips, I hope you are writing much and well at that! About writing. Writing is all about streamlining your thoughts. Or may be not! Because when you give up the streamlining is... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: A word after a word…

Perhaps, the golden rule of all things writing is this. Word upon word, you build that castle and then wander around in it leisurely, wallowing in the sweet fruits of your hard work and revel in the abundance of satisfaction. On those bad days, just remind yourself this - you've got just one word to... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: Write one true sentence…

In writing, often times, we are weighed down by our own passion to create the best pieces; pieces the world has never seen nor read. If anything, this passion pressure gets the better of us and there are days when writing down even a few words feels an avalanche of a job. So what do... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: Writers write from empathy…

We have Diwali around the corner and as you do know, festive occasions are damn fun and mad, both; which is why this is going to be a quick post. I wish you and your family a prosperous Diwali.

#Quoted: The beautiful part of writing is..

Happy Monday, readers and writers! How have you been? Today we shall talk about first attempts and writing. I have known writers cracking their skulls up trying to get everything perfect at the first strike, almost killing themselves in the process. But I ask, is it necessary? More than that, is it possible to nail... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: Do not write what someone else could…

One of the most powerful advices on writing that I have come across in recent times. I haven't before heard of this author but his words hit so hard. It is your voice alone that will give you the recognition you seek. Nothing more. Nothing less. Let nothing make you believe otherwise. And most importantly,... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: Write everyday, line by line…

The worst thing that can happen to anybody is giving up on a dream or ambition from the fear of rejection. And yet, as I write this down, I think of time that awaits me when my book is finally done. That's when those damn talons of fear grip me, choking me, and there is... 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 →
