A one minute writing challenge for you.




There's a site called One word.
It's very simple. You will see one word at the top of the screen. You have sixty seconds to write about it. You don't have to think..You have to just write.

I did that for today's post.  The word I got was

Danced 

Here's what I came up with.

 She danced as she thought no one was watching. But unknown to her Mr. D’souza was by the door. She winced in pain, grimaced but nevertheless carried on. It was important to her. She was dying. Only, no one knew but her.


Your turn now!
Go :)
And once you have written it, come back and share it here, in my comment box. (share your word, as well as what you wrote)
[You can also see other people's entries for the same word on the site]

    1. It's aim can be whatever you want it to be! Its a creative writing exercise.

      I have spoken many times about both my releases this year on my Instagram Live :)
      Thanks for your suggestion, but when I write, I am in a different world. I don't have access to this world. My thoughts flow from another dimensions, and my characters speak,I listen and transcribe :)
      Will not be possible for me to incorporate the reader's suggestions or ideas as it interferes with the creative process.
      You can be a part of my writing journey by continuing to read my books (if you find value in them) and continuing to support me..thanks!

  5. I got the word reaching...this is what I wrote..
    She was on the verge of reaching home after 14 years spent in boarding school. She used to rarely come home on holidays. She regretted it now that she was old enough to appreciate the scenic beauty that whizzed past her. She couldn't wait to see her family. The train journey had kindled a new found love for her hometown.

  6. Reaching was my word.
    He said he was reaching soon. As I waited and waited night turned to day . Finally I realised he would never come back. He had taken off, left me for good , dumped me. But I wasn't going to take it lying down. I'll be back !

  7. Reaching was my word

    Reaching one's goals is very important in life. Milestones shape a persons life. It is all about setting goals and attaining them. Live live to the full.

  8. Thank you for introducing the website to us. I got Reaching as my word. Here is what I wrote :

    I turned to my side and reached out. Thin air is all I got. I had been dreaming again. This dream was the window to the parallel world. I reached out to jump into it, only to get a bump in my head. That time was gone. That touch was gone. All I was left with was the sensation of the possibilities and ache in my belly of having had a chance. Only if I had reached out more or maybe had not reached out at all. The all too familiar what ifs, the all too familiar curl in a ball sensation!

  10. Hello Mam,

    I got the word 'specific'.

    There are no specific rules to be happy. No self-help book can teach you such rules. It entirely depends on the person how he goes about it. My happiness is totally mine and I have to find it on my own, not in a specific person or a specific thing. It has to be a quest with your own self.

  11. Specific
    I was way too specific about the kind of guy that I wanted to get married to, Sriram was my definition of specific, chiseled jaw, a lot of attitude and flawless English. It is only now when I try to correct Karthik’s grammar do I realize how unspecific and uncertain life can be!

My TOP TEN books for 2018

I have read 35 books this year. If you are looking to read MORE  in the new year, I have also written a post on it : 5 easy ways to read more and transform your life.

Since the end of the year is a good time to make a list, I thought I would share my TOP reads for this year. (It would be difficult to list all 35 I read, and also I didn't enjoy all)

So here are my top  ten in no particular order. (It was very very very hard to pick just ten).
I am not writing what these books here about as you can easily look them up online,  and read what they are about. Some are non-fiction in this list. They might have been published many years back--but it is just that I read them this year.

1. Nightingale --Kristin Hannah.






2. Childhood friend --Vaikom Muhammed Basheer



3.The Last Email --Mridula Garg





 4. Little Fires Everywhere --Celeste Ng








5. Bad Blood --John Carryrou.

6. Knight of seven Kingdoms: GRR Martin


7. The Little Prince:  Antoine de saint exupĂ©ry

On keeping diaries and journals.

In my book A Hundred Little Flames Gopal Shanker keeps a diary. I have based him on my own grandfather who used to keep diaries.

I too have kept journals and diaries ever since I was a child. This year, I am happy that I managed to write a page, every single day. In addition to my personal diary, I also kept an illustrated journal this year. I found it was great fun. I am sharing three pages from my illusrated journal, to give you an idea of what my journal is like.





You can see the date stamp on the top right corner of each page, and you can see how I have drawn something from my day. Often there is nothing dramatic in my day. They are just ordinary days. But what I like is to find something 'worthy' from that day, and draw it in the journal.
I follow just one rule for my journal--no recording negativity of any kind. I focus only on the positives.

In my personal diary, I write my thoughts--my goals, what I have to do in the future, and generally I record whatever happened tha…

This is how I welcome the new year

Happy happy happy new year folks!!! As I type this, I can hear loud party noises and fire crackers all around.
I dislike parties. I prefer being in a quiet atmosphere with my loved ones, doing something meaningful together.
We always light the lamp at midnight. It's a family tradition. You can see the lamp in the first picture, and my altar, illuminated by the brightness of the lamp in the second.

We thank the universe for ALL the blessings bestowed upon us.
And we welcome the new year with prayers and gratitude.


With this I come to the end of my blog marathon. 31 days, and I have given you all 31 posts!
Leave me comments. I love to hear from you.

 Happy New Year once again. May all your dreams come true.
