My reading usually ends up taking a dip about this time of the year. For some reason, June and July are never my best reading months. Is it the glorious Bangalore weather? Shouldn’t be, because all that nip in the air should just make me want to cuddle deeper into my quilt, warm myself with […]

What If? Walking through the parking lot, I saw a young man approaching people as they walked into the store. Most ignored him, or held up their hand indicating they weren’t interested in anything he had to say. I scanned the door, hoping to get by without being approached. I was in a hurry and [...

I cannot emphasize how eye-opening Adam Golaski’s work was for me. I wouldn’t dream of comparing my writing to his, but I felt a kind of symmetry on my first reading “The Animator’s House”. It felt as if I’d stumbled across a writer far more skilled than I, but was interested in following non-tr...

I used to think the three-act structure was bullshit. I know how, however, that I only felt that way because I struggle with abstract concepts. It took me several years, numerous craft books, and a lot of practice to wrap my mind around the classic three-act structure. The fact that I was attempt...
