    You can do it!
    You may feel hopeless right now, but the tide always changes.
    Meet people face to face.
    Spend time alone.
    There are many ‘attention seekers’. Ask if they deserve yours.
    Your creative energy has to be harnessed.
    Nourish your soul as well as your body.
    Meditate.
    I cracked it already, thank you for sharing these awesome tips.

    Mam
    I don't think so 50 reason

    Like you write from heart then ur writing connects with readers

    Blogging is not place where fix rules are apply

    Real writers do write the because they wanted to pour oain from heart like preeti mam do after get dad dead


    It is in writer hands how to relfect their beautiful blog

    And

    Time by time write improve their english

    Main thing THERE IS NO COPYRIGHT ON BLOG BY WRITER. IT IS FREE CREATIVE WORK from blog writer.

    When writer is happy then automatically writes HAPPY MOMENTS by writer and vice versa.

    If writer wanted to give message then he or she tired best for PUBLISH THIER SOCIAL MESSAGE

    And blog marothon is tough challenge for every writer
    Blog marathon karna mazat nahi hai

    1. Yeah it was a very easy clue..!!
      You will never be able to please everybody.
      Do one happy thing every day.
      Learn to ignore.
      Do your own thing.
      You get what you send out.
      Don’t get involved in the drama in other people’s lives.
      Do one kind selfless deed for someone.
      Very important to be grateful for the genuine people in your life.

      The world wont always be kind to you.
      Things change.
      You can do it!
      Even your closest friends will hurt you at some point of time.
      You can go on long after you think you can’t.

      Spend time alone.

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

Three powerful things every aspiring writer must do.

On Saturday, I got a message from my publisher.
'Check the Hindustan Times today; We're at No.5 and No.8,' he said.

I checked immediately, and my heart leapt up in joy.  TWO of my books were indeed among the highest selling fiction books in the country. My publisher also sent me this nice creative!




 I felt very happy, because it's not easy for a book to climb into the charts MONTHS after it's release. In the case of Life is What You Make It, it is TEN YEARS since  I wrote that book. Having the books there was validation that people find comfort and joy in my writing.

I have grown as a writer, with every book I have written. I do work very hard at my craft. I am constantly trying to write better. I write every single day---although everything is not for publication. I have a desk full of notebooks and diaries which I have filled over the years. I have my gratitude journal, my daily journal, my story ideas, my blog posts, my emails, my one minute writing exercises. …

The number one essential to be a succesful writer.

What is the most important thing, a writer must do, in order to be successful? I am often asked this.

Now 'being successful' itself can be defined in several ways. If you are an aspiring writer, I would consider the first step of success as completing a manuscript. If you have managed to sit down and have completed writing a book, you are successful, whether you have managed to find a publisher or not. You  have successfully crossed the first step.


The other question I am usually asked is about my art. One of the things I do, in between my writing is my art. I am asked questions like how it helps my writing, and whether a writer should have other forms of creative expression, other than writing.

I don't think a writer truly needs to have any other form of creative expression, if they are not inclined! If you are passionate about writing and you have no other creative pursuits, that is perfectly okay. To say that one must have other creative pursuits apart from writing…
