Welcome back to my world of stories. After a long gap, I am here, bringing to you something that is close to my heart for many reasons.
1. They say that stories carry a part of the author in them and if you read enough of someone’s work – you can know what that person is like. After this story though, you won’t need to read any other of my stories to know who I am. While the romance itself is not my real life story – a lot of peripheral situations are! So if something doesn’t appeal to you – please be kind!
2. After The Emerald Isle Tales, I was so nervous of never being able to write that the only way I could was to go back to the initial days of writing. There are no magic people, 18th century Irish curses, scheming publishers and cougar authors in this story. It is a simple story of two people spread over a few years. I promise you there are no big twists, scary secrets and heartbreak that makes you want to weep (or pull your hair out!)
3. This story finally gives me a chance to explore the possibility of weaving writing with my only other true love – Hindi films and songs. There will be a lot of that. And I am not known for very eclectic taste in music or movies. You have been warned!
Now that the above is said and done – here are the next set of…well…
Story– This piece is purely a work of fiction and my imagination. Any resemblance to anyone living, dead or fictional is coincidental and maybe just a product of having access to information that is so widely available and accessible
Pace- Not much has changed about how I write. I expect the pace to still be slow. This a love story but not one where the leads meet, clash, almost kiss, fight, cry, kiss, confess, make love and live happily ever after in toe-curling quick succession (I don’t know how to write those :( ). If this is not your cup of tea – I will completely understand.
Update Schedule: Every Monday evening IST
Access- The story will remain on this blog from now until a month after I finish. I will not take access away without letting those who start with me or join midway, finish the journey (if they still want to, that is!).
Comments– I always love reading what you have to say. And I will always understand if you don’t have anything to say. However, I may not have time to respond to each of your comments personally. Please do not take that as a sign of my arrogance or indifference – I just expect my asli duniya to be crazy as it has been to not allow me the luxury of connecting with you as much as I would like to.
And now if any of you are still around after that long note, I present to you. I hope you are not disappointed.
