New Developments

I have been absent a bit, but it has been a ride lately. We went to my sister's place on August 24th and returned on 25th. On 28th morning, she called us to inform that her youngest has been diagnosed with Covid. He's turning seven this October, and needless to say, we are all still… Continue reading New Developments

Lead up to Onam

Onam has not been fun for me for almost 20 years. Every year, this festival that I once looked forward to and loved, has turned into a social obligation that I had to power through. It has been triggering too many traumas, and no wonder, that this week has been more unsettling than ever. I… Continue reading Lead up to Onam

My farewell to bank

Today being the last working day of the month, was also my last day in my bank. I won't say it has been easy to leave. There are still anxious questions in my mind, but ultimately, I know that this is a step that I needed to take for the sake of my mental health… Continue reading My farewell to bank

Stress and Relaxation

My birthday was this week, and somehow, it's been quite stressful and depressing for me for the last couple of years. It was no different this year, of course. Yesterday, stress of another nature occurred with an intruder who wanted some money and wouldn't leave till after I threatened to hit him with my slippers.… Continue reading Stress and Relaxation

Back after a long break

I hadn't intended to take a break, but work got so crazy. I could hardly write two or three sentences a day afterwards. Most days in June, I got home after 9 or 10 in the night, so exhausted I was keeling over. Fortunately, all that is at an end now. My resignation has been… Continue reading Back after a long break

One Down, forty four to go

Finally, after cursing and stomping my feet and countless tantrums from my brain, I finished the first draft of Fiery Magic. I do feel accomplished right now. The rewrite of Soul of Magic is going on. I hope I can get it finished this month. Fingers crossed. I started a new WIP and a new… Continue reading One Down, forty four to go

More lockdowns and writings

The lockdown in our State is continuing, and we had triple lockdown in our district the last one week. The good part? Gave me time to write. I wrote 15k words in this one week, and I am rather proud of the effort. Fiery Magic wasn't moving forward, so I tried something new. I plotted.… Continue reading More lockdowns and writings

The travails of lockdowns

I know it is necessary here, with how the Covid cases rising everyday and deaths too, but I'd forgotten how inconvenient a full lockdown was. One good thing is banks don't have to work every day. Three days a week with 50% staff and timings up to 2, so I had to go only one… Continue reading The travails of lockdowns

Another Friday and More Thoughts

I have been quite busy this month, and for once, it is not work. I have been helping out a couple of friends with editing, and having a lot of fun. One of them had had some quite exciting changes happen, but more on that later. I also caught up to my camp nano goals,… Continue reading Another Friday and More Thoughts

Weekend Plans

I haven't got a synopsis for RevPit yet, but there's still time? I've got my submission document ready for now. I'm also behind in my camp nano goals, so plans for the weekend is to catch up and maybe build up a buffer. Even though I'm behind on my goals, writing is still happening, and… Continue reading Weekend Plans
