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

One week or so later

I am rather glad I started anti depressants, because my state of mind is much better. Not everything is hunky dory, of course, but there is hope now. I have increased the number of my WIPs to 48, and I think I'll stop there. It's a nice even number, just shy of fifty, and I'm… Continue reading One week or so later

Something new?

This week has been different. I started anti depressants, and already I can feel the change. There is a bit of sleepiness, vagueness, inability to focus, and some slight physical issues as well, but for the first time in so long, life doesn't seem like an endless well of despair. I posted the final chapter… Continue reading Something new?

Another Random Ramble

2021 doesn't seem all that different from 2020. In fact it might even be worse, I think. Odd numbered years had never been good for me. I've lost most of the people I loved in such years. My dad in 2007, my brother in law in 2009, my son in 2019, so I'm naturally wary… Continue reading Another Random Ramble

New books and some thoughts

I have submitted Elitist Supremacy to this competition called ISFAB a few days ago, and my book has already been read by the judge it was allotted to, and now I'm in tenterhooks wondering if they liked it or not. I have been setting very moderate goals for each day on working days, so there's… Continue reading New books and some thoughts

Happy New Year

Not yet, I know. I have three more hours to go here, and I can't wait! Not necessarily because I think 2021 is going to magically turn things around, but hopefully it will be better than 2020. With a vaccine already out, there is reason for hope at least. I have started two new WIPs… Continue reading Happy New Year

Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates it, and happy holidays to everyone who doesn't. The pandemic has fucked up our whole year, but hopefully next year will be better. The vaccine is here and perhaps we will all be able to gain some semblance of normalcy in our lives. My week has been work and… Continue reading Happy Holidays

More Editing and a Video Trailer

I finished editing Bleeding Gold and also the first draft of Memories of Forgotten Waves. I know it needs a lot of work, but at least the first draft is done now. I also started the first round of edits on Colliding Forces and The Soul of Magic. Colliding Forces don't need as much work,… Continue reading More Editing and a Video Trailer

A Hectic Week

This week had been unlike any other. I had a breakdown at work yesterday and had to leave early. Mental health issues are no fun, and everything is making me more and more convinced that my decision to quit my job next year is the right one. Whether I will be able to generate enough… Continue reading A Hectic Week
