As a writer, it becomes a necessity at some point or the other, to understand as many technicalities of the craft as possible. Whether you're an intuitive writer or a deliberate one, there will be times when you'll have to break the literary rules in order to create your masterpiece, but in order to do [...]

The 4-Act-Structure: Introduction

The 4-Act-Structure: Introduction

  As almost all the plotters would swear by, outlining a story helps a writer greatly in making sense of the story for the readers. We, as writers, know what our story is and how it plays out, the difficult bit is to put in into words in a systematic way and have it make sense [...]

2019 Resolutions

2019 Resolutions

I know I'm late for this, but I really like doing a resolutions post and I really didn't want to miss out this year. I'll try and keep this post as short as I can because if I'd let myself get carried away then this would be one hell of a lengthy post. So without [...]

Getting Back In The Groove

Finally, after almost 1 and a half years, since Eva's arrival and the start of my health issues (both unrelated, of course), I am feeling like myself again. After such a long break, I have also started re-working on my 2nd novel, Sinister Town, with the kind of energy I always seemed to have before things [...]

Max Is Coming Back Home

Max Is Coming Back Home

Okay... so let me start from the beginning... We got 40 days old Max home on 10th April 2019 and everything was going great until, after exactly 13 days, Vishal rescued Whisky, a 10-15 day old kitten that V found outside a bakery on the side of the road while getting some pastries. Because Whisky [...]

My Writing Corner

Most of the writers don't like to write in one place. And I am no different. I write wherever I feel like writing and it heavily depends on my mood as one day I find the living room very appealing and the next day I seem to find inspiration in the study room while at [...]

Reading Non-Fiction

Reading Non-Fiction

For a long time I've evaded reading Non-Fiction books because... well, to be honest, I gagged at the idea of spending my time reading something that was not even remotely related to fiction. But when I started writing, I had to, although a bit reluctantly (read - a lot reluctantly), start reading non-fiction books on [...]

The First Furry Bud – Eva

I'd been MIA from last year so much that a lot of people have started thinking that I have stopped blogging altogether. That is not true! I love this blog and this is the main one I have so I am never going to stop posting here, no matter what. Now that we have that out [...]

Camp NaNoWriMo April’18

Camp NaNoWriMo April’18

Hello world, I'm back from yet another break! Like every year since 2014, I'm participating in Camp NaNoWriMo April'18. For this month I don't have a lot planned out, but just a basic idea of what needs to be done. I'm mainly going to go for 2 things this time - sorting out the ending [...]

The Ticking Clock

The Ticking Clock

Lately, I've developed this (somewhat weird) obsession with keeping track of the time all the time... All. The. TIME. And the weird part (even more so) is that it started out of nowhere! I'd always been mildly time-conscious and have had an obsession about doing things on time, but never did I obsess over each [...]
