There’s a lot more to adventure than mythical creatures and magical powers. Adventure could be set off with that one moment when the person walking through the door takes your breath away. It could be you finally having had enough of life giving you lemons.

ARC Review (NetGalley): Keep Me Posted by Lisa Beazley
Before I delve into talking about this book, I want to highlight the fact that this is my first ever ARC review, so please bear with. Continue reading “ARC Review (NetGalley): Keep Me Posted by Lisa Beazley”
I am scared of the outcome of my debut novel. I can’t imagine anyone who would read it, like it, talk about it. My friends have already read it, namely, Ananna finished reading the first draft (kudos). All I can think about is how stupid and Continue reading “Cracked Nutshell”
“You’re going to enjoy reading The Kite Runner,” Mohaimen said.
“How can you enjoy such a sad book?” Maisha said.

11 Fears of a Debut Author
I was supposed to be done on the 4th. Well, I reached the last chapter on the 4th, and actually managed to finish it by ten forty-five pm. But, I had neither a prologue nor an epilogue.
I have written an epilogue now, though. And, if you are reading this on my site then you will notice the milestone widget saying “The Big Day is here!” on my sidebar. I’ll probably take it down tomorrow or the day after. The prologue felt too off, so I ditched it. Now, just a few hours ago, actually, I had some terrifying realizations. And I want to share them, in hopes that they will subside somewhat.
Here they are. Continue reading “11 Fears of a Debut Author”

The next morning, I still remembered the entire dream, which is very unusual. One of my friends told me that a person forgets a small percentage of a dream within the first ten seconds of waking up, but within the next ten seconds, s/he forgets a huge chunk of it. That would make the dream perpetually useless. Continue reading “What I Learned From Starting On My First Manuscript”
