#Quoted: If a writer stops observing…

What exists if not our observation? Sometimes, mindful, but most times, just mindless observations. Tying our stories to the places we've been, the conversations we've eavesdropped on, the queer faces we've seen, the secrets we've stepped on. That's the birth-ground to our stories. Having a natural instinct to observe the tiniest happenings around you may... 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: 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: No one knows whether or not he is a writer unless…

I love writing at night. Somehow, the dark of the nights become the muse for my writing and the calm of the night amplifies my desire to put down words on paper. And well, I do feel much liberated of the many thoughts that plague my mind all day. So yes, I am a night-writer.... Continue Reading →

#Quoted: Do not use semicolons…

As a writer, I am of the practice of using all the elements of punctuation. And I do tend to use the semicolon fairly often. I have always believed it comes quite handy if you know its proper usage. So, when I came across this quote, I realised I don't quite agree with the author.... Continue Reading →
