Your life is in your hands and so are your dreams. Don't let that slip away with the ticking clock.

One of mostly-discussed problems of writing is writer's block. In simple words, when a writer finds it hard to write anything, it's called a writer's block. Why you get a writer's block? The reasons can be many, starting from lack of motivation to just a mood swing. How do you overcome a writer's block? 1. Never ever stress yourself-  If you can't write for some time, be it one hour or one day, just don't stress yourself. Don't keep sitting in front of the blank page, wondering why can't you write. Because, the point is not 'why', but 'how', right? You need to get in the flow, and how you do it? Here are some handy tips for you- a. Write a few lines or pages about your day. b.

How to write a Book - 5 things to avoid

First of all,let me be honest...there is no such rulebook to follow for writing a novel.This blog will rather give you some ideas or ways if you feel stuck and can't get started. So,I have been receiving a lot of queries asking for this thing...there are many ones who love writing and want to create stories, write novels but somehow don't know from where to start. I hope by the end of this blog all of you can get started with the writing you were planning for long. 1. Don't stress over it If you want to write a book, that's very good.  Butdon't keep thinking and pushing yourself to write one. Our mind and brain work the best when it's relaxed and not stressed.

Don't overthink It should not be like,you have to sit and think for hours while chewing your pen or tearing your hair to get ideas. Let your writing go with the flow. Mostly it comes from your imagin

Traditional Publishing vs. Self Publishing : All you need to know about getting published

Image
Writing is something which comes out of passion in the first place.You write for days and months without bothering about anything but going with the flow.And then the day comes,when you finish writing your first creation - be it novel or short stories or poems or poetry ...and that's the day you think of spreading your creation to the ones who can live in and cherish what you have created for days of your passion.Because only an author knows the taste of creative satisfaction he/she gets ,every time a reader lives through the pieces created and carved from the author's imagination or reality or both. When you decide to publish your first work,the first thing you need to do is have a clear idea about the whole proceedure,how it works,pros and cons etc. It's better to know all the details before you start working on it,than starting it without a clear conception.
