Presently biding my time : In a job I actually enjoy – as a Marketing & Communication professional – in a typical IT firm, in this typical IT city.
As I secretly follow my dreams of : Writing something worthwhile, with my name on the cover, which someone will read and remember. Even if the book languishes in the back shelf of a musty, old library, it’s fine. I believe, immortality lies in the words you leave behind.
As good as : This day, this moment

About being a part of Anita’s Attic Creative Writing program
I write quite a bit in my day job. But I could never make much progress with my non-business writing. I had been published in smaller publications, but I wanted to start a bigger, worthier project. Anita Nair has been a favorite author and an inspiration since I read her first novel ‘The Better Man’ almost 20 years ago. I jumped at a chance to be mentored by her as I can’t imagine a better teacher and guide. Over the last twelve weeks, Anita has helped me craft my writing better. I have learnt to structure and articulate my thought a lot more clearly. Her feedback is invaluable – it has not only helped me correct my mistakes, it has also given me the motivation to write better.
