#FictionFridays #Day69of100 ‘What do you mean you want to quit your job and travel the world? Who is going to pay for this madness?’ Smiling to herself, Tina looked at the wallpaper again. She had taken a screenshot of this message eighteen months ago, after a particularly angry conversation about her wanderlust. It had turned… Continue reading Day 69: The Wallpaper
#ThrowOffThursdays #Day68of100 Today’s post is going to be very short owing to the fact that I am writing a novel at a stretch to complete my NaNoWriMo 2018. For today a simple myth decoding: The Sun rises in the east. And an even simpler explanation: The sun neither rises nor sets. It is the Earth… Continue reading Day 68: The Oldest Myth In The World
#WordyWednesdays #Day67of100 Sometimes when poems come, they do not really follow a pattern. It is more about the content than the form, and in that regard some poems are special in their own ways. I could call it freestyling, and get away with saying that this was how I intended it – to be with… Continue reading Day 67: Fire and Air

#MotivationMondays #Day65of100 When we think of motivation, it can come from a variety of sources, most of which are not necessarily good. In fact, if truth be told, a negative impact works wonders and is many times better when compared to a positive backing. Continuing in the same line as last week’s post on spite… Continue reading Day 65: What Do We Need, and Want?

#SongbirdSaturdays #Day63of100 There are thousands of songs that I like, and it is not easy to choose a few particular ones that are special when compared to the rest. There are forgotten gems, those I have not heard in a while, and those that are too personal to share. This list does not in any… Continue reading Day 63: The Song A Character Sung
#FictionFridays #Day62of100 Horror as a genre would never work out. I do not see why any sane reader would be fascinated with something that is clearly fiction, and has no basis in truth. The best kind of fiction would include facts in it, give a taste of reality while making the reader wonder if somewhere… Continue reading Day 62: Ghost-Writing

#WordyWednesdays #Day60of100 For today’s post a poem that I loved writing and what was written in under seven minutes. I time myself for poetry, and this is one of my quickest works. It just flowed smoothly and I did not reedit my lines. ~~~~~ I'm your cautionary tale The person you're warned not to become… Continue reading Day 60: I’m Your Cautionary Tale!
