#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 →

#Quoted: If you want to write…

#Quoted is one space through which I wish to introduce some amazing writers, lesser-known, but great when it comes to the art. Today, let's talk aboutMadeleine L'Engle. Have you have read any of her books? She wrote children's books primarily. But it was her adult fiction novels that won her a gamut of awards, honors,... Continue Reading →

Writer’s Block – Real or Not?

“I don’t wish to talk of writer’s block. It is very depressing,” said a published writer when I asked if she could share her experience for my blogpost. Clearly, she was uncomfortable and my article now lacks a case story. Nevertheless! When we talk of dead ends in writing, we use the term – Writer’s... Continue Reading →

The Proofreading Checklist for Writers

When I was on a job-hunt couple of months ago, I had an interview scheduled with the National Creative Director of a reputed advertising agency. After three-quarters of an hour into the interview, she asked me, "How good are you with your grammar?" Not only did I grow nervous but was terribly baffled. What would... Continue Reading →

What I learned in 5 years of blogging

For the past few months, I have been writing poetry, a lot. I've realized it makes me feel relaxed, unbound. My diary is full with a lot of them. Some have made it to Instagram, some just lie between its pages; hopeful. But I haven’t written anything for a long time. And by that, I... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →

Are there writing rules?

There are no writing rules, unless of course, if your job depends on it. I am an amateur writer. I have never followed any rules or guides so far. I just write whatever I want to, whichever way I want to. So when someone asks me what rules there are to writing, I ask them... Continue Reading →

The Oscars for Bloggers

Okay, so, the other day it was all quiet, a peaceful afternoon. I, on the couch, balled up with legs dangling off the arm and fingers tapping away on the laptop. My sister was enjoying some nice music amidst mouthfuls of some flavor of ice-cream. So, it happened to be a peaceful noon until I... Continue Reading →

Writing Simple

Well, being simple is most difficult, isn’t it? Being simple, living simple, thinking simple, writing simple. But when it comes to writing, I feel, it’s furthermore difficult. Let me tell you about my writing experiences so far. Like every other person when I started to write, it wasn’t just the fear of rejection that clouded... Continue Reading →
