The Writer’s Ink Challenge

Writing.png
And one of the most awesome things about writing is talking about it. Spilling the beans all over the floor. You can talk to yourself, to people you trust, OR… You can do this super cool tag. Talk about options.

I was tagged by le awesome Rachel, who I sincerely thank. I am obliged to you, kind blogger.

Hahahaha, drama. Continue reading The Writer’s Ink Challenge

Let’s Face it. NaPoWriMo is Here.

I’m not sure whether I’m going to EXPLODE with excitement or drown with nervousness, but it’s a fact.

NaPoWriMo is here.

I know you very conveniently found out, owing to the title, but I put that in for the sake of extra drama.

In a frank jumble of words, NaPo is awesomely scary. For me, anyway. That’s because I am not, and will never be, able to force poetry out of myself. It just comes naturally, and though it doesn’t always turn out the way I expect it to, I can’t sit down and bully myself to write.

Most writers will have had that true and unavoidable experience.

I’m going to participate. Though no one is compelling me to and I’m scared out of my wits, I’m going to. The NaPo guys have poetry prompts every day, so it hopefully won’t be as terrifying and I expect, and as a NaPo newbie, I’d love to know what some more elderly (muhahaha the sarcasm) NaPo-ers find the April stress. Do you guys manage to get through it? HOW??

So here’s the page in which I’m going to be posting all my poems. I have a feeling that this month is not going to be quite as ordinary. Do you think so too?

And Mukta would like to give you assurance that she will try very hard to write a poem every day and Mukta will also be a loyal and faithful bloggy friend.

Mukta is a good elf, you see.

Are you going to participate in NaPoWriMo?
Do you find it difficult?
Can you elderly guys give me some survival tips??

Yours,
Mukta, the free elf

NaNoWriMo 2016

Aloha, readers! I’m excited to be taking up NaNoWriMo this year. Here’s something you may want to be aware of.
I won’t be posting a lot this November, and probably the next few Novembers too.

I sure am excited! Wish me luck!

Vernacular Muddle

Hello there! Today I’m going to… well, maybe I won’t reveal it right now. Read till the end, my friend, and then try to guess what this was all about 🙂


In our area, an area that looked as calm as calmness, as serene as the sea, resided Bakaraj, one of the most promising policeman in the locality.

This is what got me confused. I, Sukhasana, read this over and over countless times. My father, who was a promising author, had a diary of his childhood, which I accepted with glee when he presented it to me. I am much of a vigorous reader, though I don’t like to endorse in happy-go-lucky fairy tales and more of such. I like action! I like suspense! And what I like most of all is getting surprised. I love it when something completely unexpected happens in a story. But looks like my dad’s life was as ordinary as any ordinary person’s, and he only just used much inflated language. So I got more and more bored as a page passed by.

I got such grand scores in our monthly examination that the teacher appreciated me twice each day, for more than a week. I was not very surprised. I still remember the time that I passed with 101% in English thanks to the immense favour the examiner had laid upon me. Continue reading Vernacular Muddle
