April Double Attack – A2Z and Camp NaNoWriMo

Ten days to go for April 1. Ten days to go for Blogging A2Z Challenge to begin. Also, ten days to go for Camp NaNoWriMo, since I foolishly decided to participate in both.

Why I Write?

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?

Daddy’s Princess

"No!" Aisha giggled. Mark checked his speed-o-meter again. "No? You sure?" He asked her, sticking his tongue out even more. "Daddy, noooo." Aisha giggled again. "Still no doggy," she said, flapping the large ragged doll in her hands for emphasis. "Okay, No." He laughed. "What about a horse?" Checking the rear-view mirror, he cautiously overtook … Continue reading Daddy’s Princess

Story Continuation Challenge Season Finale

The Story Continuation Challenge ran for 11 straight weeks and some amazing stories came out of it. The prompts were as difficult as I could make them and yet the ones who participated wrote such brilliant stories that it sometimes made us sad, sometimes angry, sometimes all goey and warm-hearted and always left us wanting … Continue reading Story Continuation Challenge Season Finale

Story Continuation Challenge Prompt 11

The Mother's Day prompt was interesting and easy enough , I guess. At least the responses seem to indicate so. There were two very interesting write-ups. Once again, from Mandi and Sonali. I absolutely loved both the articles and especially was impressed by the novelty and unique perspective in both. It helped me change my … Continue reading Story Continuation Challenge Prompt 11

The Camp NaNoWriMo Battle Victory

I've already been shouting about this from the roof-tops. I've also been dragging you along on my journey, turning to you often enough for moral support, motivation and encouragement. I only talked about my novel and of Camp NaNoWriMo this whole month. Looks like it worked after all. This is to thank you for standing … Continue reading The Camp NaNoWriMo Battle Victory

Of Rains and Rainbows: Solicit your feedback

A few months ago, a close friend had said this about me: “Give her any prompt and she dives right into it; writing in full flow.” At the time I had simply laughed and brushed it off. But her words came to mind yesterday after I completed the first assignment at the Interactive Flash Fiction … Continue reading Of Rains and Rainbows: Solicit your feedback

Story Continuation Challenge Prompt 7

With Camp NaNoWriMo in full swing and my Sikkim travel tales, the Story Continuation Challenge got second rate treatment, unfortunately. But here it is , with another interesting prompt this week.

Story Continuation Challenge Prompt 6

It's heartening to see the creativity and stories you spin from just one random sentence. Last week's prompt couldn't have been easy. It was as random as can be and yet, some of the most interesting stories came out of it. Even the additional challenge doesn't seem to anything more than an interesting angle for you … Continue reading Story Continuation Challenge Prompt 6
