Sundari Venkatraman is an Indie Author who has 40+ to her credit.

Even as a child, Sundari absolutely loved the ‘lived happily ever after’ syndrome and she grew up on a steady diet of fairy tales, Phantom comics and Mandrake comics. It was always about good triumphing over evil and a happy ending after the protagonists surmounted all unexpected obstacles.

Once she entered her teens, Sundari switched her loyalties from fairy tales to Mills & Boon. While

Hi Priyanka,
Thank you! I am truly honoured :D
I am not a trained writer. I have always loved reading and began to write out of the blue one day, just trying out different methods for each book. I didn't think too much, just put into words the scenes that came to mind. I wrote 3 novels this way (in the span of six months), the stories that were pushing from within me to find form. These are THE MALHOTRA BRIDE, MEGHNA & THE MADRAS AFFAIR.
Later, after staying away from them for a few weeks, and also getting a feedback from someone I know, I re-read the stories and reworked on them. I did have to do it a few times until they got to the stage of being published. There is no right or wrong way to do this. It takes time and patience and a lot of reworking.
Re-read a few books that you truly enjoyed. And maybe you can write your story in that style. You can begin the story with a dialogue or a sudden incident that makes the reader sit up and take notice; anything that would grab the reader's attention instantaneously. That's what works best for me. By working on your story, you will soon know what works for you, since each writer is unique.
I wish you the very best.
PS: If you keep thinking, procrastinating, the story will keep getting postponed. I know a number people who have been thinking of becoming a writer since years and years. Just take the pen and start right NOW. Or use the keyboard if that works well for you. (less)
