When I first started this blog, it was only a testing platform for me to gauge my writing skills. I also wanted to use it as a platform to showcase my write-ups as samples, while pitching to prospective clients. I hadn't ever expected the response it got. Neither had I expected the paths it would lead … Continue reading The Road Ahead

I am taking My Alexa rank to the next level with Blogchatter and we have to read four blogs every day as part of the … Continue reading New Blogs I Discovered Last Week
When I started the My Friend Alexa campaign with Blogchatter, I had little understanding about Alexa ranking, page views, and SEO listings. I had signed up for the campaign expecting it to be replete with difficult tasks described using technical jargon which would go right over my little head, much like the spaceship that hovers … Continue reading The Week Gone By
When I ask myself Why I Write, I also look at the journey I've been on so far. And while it's been less than two years (which in my opinion is very short a time to judge how I've fared), my journey has been extremely rewarding and fulfilling for me. I don't measure my success … Continue reading My Journey with Sheroes
How does it feel to start something only to leave it midway just because you were unable to keep up with the commitment and work it involved? Guilty, and of course, a sense of incompleteness. That's exactly how I felt about ignoring my blog for the past few months as I pursued new interests and opportunities. … Continue reading Why I Write?

I am not the ‘life’ of any party
I do not have a gang of friends to embark on adventures or make my day to day life seem like a sitcom
I work from home so there isn’t any scope of making work friends, as well
I love reading, writing, a bit of gardening, and spending time with animals…well, umm…also, surfing the internet mindlessly sometimes and feeling like a loser…none of this involves a raging crowd
The kind of friendship I crave for involves an unconditional presence for each other, a deep bond that transcends time and distance, the absence of judgement, a compatibility of minds and a magical connection of souls. Yes, I might as well ask for an unicorn that would take me to space!
As a result of all these factors I do not have many people to talk to…

A detailed account of a writers’ meet; written by someone you know 😉
A report on the first Wrimo India meetup of 2016 which was held in Delhi this evening, by Wrimo Piyusha Purnima Vir.
The first Wrimo India meet of the year was held in Delhi, this evening. It was a fun event with seasoned and newbie writers and even non-writers joining us for a fun-filled chat about writing, expression, stories and experiences that shape our lives.
Rain and a lack of space may have resulted in a change of plans from the original meeting place at India Habitat Centre but we quickly figured out an alternative and upon selecting a beautiful green spot in a shaded area, squatted on the ground in front of the Information Centre and got talking. In fact, when it started pouring again, we all huddled under umbrellas and continued talking, attracting amused looks from curious spectators.
The Craft of Writing
The discussion started with veteran Wrimo, Arjun S…

When I started writing (and blogging), I had certain dreams, of course. But what I hadn’t expected was how close I would be realizing them. I have a story in a soon-to-be-published anthology as well as my almost complete novel. While there’s still work to be done on that, I am excited that it’s nearing … Continue reading The Big News

Is what I've written interesting … Continue reading The Art of Confusion

Dear Reader, How have you been doing? I've been sort of out of touch from the Blogosphere lately - guilty of not visiting blogs, not commenting on your posts, not even clicking one measly like!
