They were never…moreNo. I wrote the plot and the first few chapters only for myself. Just like the poetries I have been writing for over 16 years now. They were never intended to be published. Unlike the poetry I shared these chapters with a few friends. They thought the stuff I had written had potential and I must explore the possibility of writing the whole story. Once I got to that I completed it within the month. Although, I kept rewriting my plot over two months, before I penned my first lines and then edited the work over six months after I completed the initial manuscript. Thats how Destiny of Shattered Dreams came to be. My second novel 'The Emissary' is almost 1/4 done, I am currently taking a break to have a few learnings from this one once it is out, I will then begin to complete this one and hopefully find a publisher to release it next year.

I wrote my first novel within a month of starting to pen it, I spent double that time to just write the headers for the sub-plots, but once I got to writing, I was done within a month. I am a lazy researcher too, on the contrary research beyond a point is a road block to creativity. My first way to deal with a writer's block is to take a break, may be a day or two or even a week. I keep thinking and re-thinking about the scenarios without really penning them down. If I do get a break through, I start again. Reading another book or two within that break can help erase the block sometimes. And if nothing works, I simply force my way through the story, it might read bland or may sound timid when you do that, but remember its a small part of the story and there is always an edit option.

Jaitley’s budget speech was a marquee one for numerous reasons and interestingly non-budgetary ones. While financial prudence is a challenge for every developing economy, particularly one infested with the malice of corruption and unscrupulous defaulters who are always one step ahead of the law. With demonetization, Modi put the responsibility of development back on its citizens citing tax evas... Read more of this blog post »
