Presently biding my time : Between trying to figure out the perfect diet and working out, aspiring to travel every three months, dreaming of the day or night when words will flow out of my pen, seeking an alternative to every norm in life and hoping that I will never have to confirm
As I secretly follow my dreams of : of finishing my first book in June 2018
As good as: Coming home
Part of the : Creative Writing Mentorship Program from July 1 – Sep 21 2017
About being a part of Anita’s Attic Creative Writing program
I have always wanted to be read, read by someone who understands writing. Understand it for its crafting, its language, its strengths and its beauty. I wanted to be in the midst of people who wrote better much better than me. I wanted to be reviewed by someone who had made a mark in the literary arena. I found all this in Anita at the Attic. Anita has been instrumental in driving home the fact that writing is first and foremost a discipline.
Churning out 1500 words every week broke me yet made me. I have been both elated and dejected at the reviews and that is what I was looking for. The Attic has made me more resolute in sharpening my skill in the days to come. Anita has also introduced us to digital experts , Publishers , literary agents and authors and each interaction has taken us one step closer to the world of words .It has been a wonderful journey with her and my team mates who have instilled fun and purpose into the learning .
