The North Ridge High Series

Back when I was in the final year of high school, we had a Scholastic book fair, where the catalogue I was presented flashed a book titled Spring Fling at me, the pretty cover of which grabbed my attention at once. I had to buy it and I think when I did, that was the…

Rabbit On Crack

Question: Hey, how are you? How’s it going? Answer by FRIEND: Hey, I’m fine how are you? Everything’s swell here, how’s it going for you? Answer by BEST FRIEND: Huh? Are you high? It’s way past your bedtime and you sound like a rabbit on crack.

Imagination On Gear!

Hey there, guys, how’s it going?  I found this one liner writing prompt on Google that inspired a short on-the-spot scene. Read on to find out what came out of my head 😀 They had to make sure none one else had noticed … They had to make sure no one else had noticed. But…

Our Clumsy Thumbsies

Anyone who watches The Ellen Show must be very aware of the comic segment – Clumsy Thumbsies – where Ellen reads out text messages that are messed up by the very intelligent autocorrect on every smart phone. While I was texting my best friend, Priya Darshni, my autocorrect pitched in its brain to change the word ‘yesterday’…

Hey, guys, I decided to do something a little different for today. I’ve received a couple of awards for this blog as well as my previous one, which contained some interesting questions that I liked answering.

Difference Between Reading As A Reader And As A Writer

For the past few years, ever since I authored my works, I’ve been noticing a clear contrast to the way I look at a book. It seems there are two people in me when it comes to that: The reader and the writer. I’ve been only a reader till I was 16 and when you’re…

When Are You Who You Really Are?

I think this is a million dollar question everyone is hunting the answer for. You may have come across a similar analysis in another blog post too. Just last night, I was reading Taylor Swift’s Reputation magazine, where in the intro she’s mentioned how we present the version of ourselves we want to present to…

Clumsy the Girl

Clumsy the Girl was programmed by default to be the world’s biggest klutz. God had concocted some kind of mutant butter and dipped her hands into it, drenching her fingers, and make her have household objects take part in the domestic Olympics, clanging and crashing. A perfectly safe and flat surface tripped her worse than…

Tall Tale

Back in college, we had an exercise in English class called Tall Tales, whose rule was to invent an alternate climax to any popular story, as far as our imaginations took us. I chose The Hare and the Tortoise after a few wheels spun in my head and produced my composition, the revised edition of…

Laptop or a Notebook?

WordPress is flooded with authors, all of whom are either novelists or bloggers alone. Every person’s website is a testimony to the pen they hold in their hand and as we indulge in this art almost every day, it’s crucial to know whether the mode of the art being crafted is suitable for the long…
