Writing tips, a contest and a chat! #Campusdiaries #CD



Have you always wanted to write a story but never got the motivation to? Campus Diaries which is India's largest storytelling platform for students might just give that impetus to. They are runnin a contest where you can win prizes worth over a lakh.

Other than the fact that I would be judging the entries I have nothing to do with it :) So if you want to participate in it, head over HERE

They had interviewed me a few days back and asked me for writing tips. I maintain that I am still a learner when it comes to writing, even though I might have six best-selling novels behind me.



 I have a long long way to go and I am constantly reading up and looking for ways to improve my writing.
However, whatever I know I was happy to share. I loved the way they had presented the interview.

If you wish to read the writing tips I had to offer, head over HERE

The reason I have been a little slow in updating my blog is--you guessed it---I am working on my next book.
And it is going to be non-fiction..
and...and...and....

it is going to be something very useful to almost everyone!  It will definitely make you think, make you ponder and perhaps give you some answers.

I will not reveal anymore--you will have to watch this space.

Good luck if you are taking part in the story writing contest.
And even if you aren't you can head over to twitter tomorrow at 11.00 am, just to chat with me :)

A Hundred Little Flames - Chapter 1

There were two completely unrelated incidents that happened on Sunday, which would change Ayan’s life forever.

1. He attended an office party thrown by his boss in a swanky uptown pub in Pune.
2.More than a thousand miles away, in a small village in Kerala, not identifiable by Google Maps, his grandfather had a fall.

On Monday morning, unaware of anything but the clock on his computer ticking, Ayan took a sip of the horrendous office tea with over-boiled tea leaves, too much milk and sugar. He had only forty-five minutes left before the meeting was to begin. Beads of perspiration trickled down his forehead into his eye, and he blinked. His brow furrowed, he sat hunched, with an ache in his neck, his fingers flying across the keyboard. He felt as though somebody was raining blows inside his head. His throat was parched despite the tea, and now his stomach began to feel queasy as well.
He regretted having that fourth tequila last night. But Randhir had insisted. You can hardly…

Lots of me! An update of what I have been upto, the last two weeks.

Over the last two weeks, I have spent more time in planes, airports, cars and hotel rooms than I have at home. To say that it has been awfully hectic would understating it.
I have been travelling. A LOT. Those of you who follow my Instagram feed, would  know that I had been to Mumbai, Delhi and Jammu over the last two weeks.

In Mumbai, I had an interview with Sonali Bendre. She runs a book club called Sonali's Book Club. They pick up a book, read it, and then discuss it. I was overjoyed that she found my book fascinating. We had an in-depth conversation about the book. It was easily one of the best interviews i have had.
It was live on Facebook as well as Instagram.
In case you missed it, do watch it below:





I also had a live interaction with Midday, and FirstPost.
That was fun as well. You can watch the Firstpost one below:




In Delhi, I had a lovely interaction with InUth. They asked me if I like Durjoy or Ravinder. You can see what i answered in the below video :)

Ten things nobody told you about being an author

1. People you don't know will love you such a lot.





2. People you don't know will hate you.





3. You will travel to places you never dreamt you could go.





4.The places you travel to, will include those places inside your head you never want to visit.





5.People will mistakenly think something you write is about them.





6. You will offend people.





7.You will lose friends.





8. You will discover that the friends you lost weren't really friends in the first place.





9.You will  never have bad experiences. They just turn into writing ideas.




10. You will become a curious observer of the human race. (oh wait! You already were!)
