This is my first post for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group monthly blogging event. Before I move on to talk about myself, I would like to thank my friend Susan Rouchard, who introduced me to the Insecure Writer’s Group and who has a wonderful blog that you can check here.
So, here I go. I am a relatively young blogger/writer who took to her writing journey fifteen months ago with my blog A Hundred Quills. Not that I wasn’t writing before that but I was a closet writer until September last year. Starting a blog helped me to open up my writing to the world and shed many, many inhibitions. I met some wonderful writers and bloggers, who have been very encouraging.
At the same time, I am still hungry for more like-minded people to read me and offer their inputs…and I am ready to take severe criticism as well! Because the more mistakes you make, the more you learn. Having said that, I wish to add that I write because I enjoy writing. I am not looking at something particular, but only at evolving as a writer. Presently, I am just a learner in this journey.
I enjoy poetry the most, and write in both English and Hindi, which is also my mother tongue. I would love to write for children. I have attempted a couple of short stories for them.
I hope to have a great time with fellow writers at IWSG.
And although the question is optional, here I go:
December 4 question – Let’s play a game. Imagine. Role-play. How would you describe your future writer self, your life and what it looks and feels like if you were living the dream? Or if you are already there, what does it look and feel like? Tell the rest of us. What would you change or improve?
Maybe five years down the line I will be done with my first book for children. The concept is itching to take form and a rough draft is already resting in my laptop. I am presently doing more research because the idea requires some more fact finding.
Assuming that the book will already be out, I hope to see myself writing more and more and working towards another draft. This time, maybe, a bilingual book of all my poems. i quit my previous job to work towards becoming a writer and it would mean a great deal to live that dream!
Thank you for visiting the blog and I do hope you will share your valuable thoughts in the comments section.
