Any Coffee House of Anywhere

Hello Reader!

I’m here to talk to you of Poetry. Even though I am a firm believer of the beauty of prose, as a Writer in general, I also dabble in poetry. Never having been an expert, or even remotely comfortable with poetic metres, I still write some freestyle poems.

This was one of my recent works, sitting in a random coffee house, in a random location, on a random day.

Not Just Empty Words

Hi!

This is an answer to the Question of the Day post here. Without any further ado, viola, the question.

What sentences (about anything) have stopped you in your tracks and changed your life?

“There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.”

Elizabeth Bennet, Pride and Prejudice

“The true voyage of discovery consists not of going to new places, but of having a new pair of eyes.”

“”This is for you,” he said, holding one of the parts out to the monk. “It’s for your generosity to the pilgrims.”
“But, this payment goes well beyond my generosity,” the monk responded.
“Don’t say that again. Life might be listening, and give you less the next time.””

The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho

There was also the title of an article : “How Perfectionists Can Get Out of Their Own Way”.

 

How would you  answer the question? Post on the comments or on your own blog and let’s give people things to think about.

Love,

Priya

Printed Pages and “What do they do to me, man, hypnotism?”

Hi Readers!

I am back with a new short post (which, again, I started writing three days ago, but, the margin’s closer than the previous post‘s).

This one is a celebration of sorts.

😀

I just finished reading my 100th book since I discovered Goodreads!

What was 2017?

Hi!

I started this draft about a month ago, what does that tell you? That I was stumped. I was stumped like someone running into the blocked barrier at Platform 9 and three-quarters at King’s Cross, London.

Last week, thankfully, I attained a day of revelation, as I logged into my Google account and opened up my Maps timeline. Now, I have something to say about 2017.

The Timeless One

Hello everyone!

It has been a long time.

I have been a bad blogger.

And, I am going to hell.

I KNOW.

I’m so sorry, folks! If you need a short recap of the last few months, here goes.

  1. I got more responsibilities at work
  2. People (including me) got sick a lot in October
  3. Diwali was celebrated
  4. I went to the Bangalore Literature Festival
  5. I started on NaNoWriMo, despite my misgivings (I wanted to focus on my two novels, you see. But, NaNo kinda creeps on you and tempts you in so many ways. This time, I got #SuspenseProject.)
  6. I went to FRIGGIN’ MUMBAI, baby!
  7. I had my first ever Comic-con

Let’s go back to the subject matter of this post (point 6). Go ahead, have a look at our pictures!

Celebrating Unproductivity

Hi Reader!

Happy weekend to all of you out there! It’s Saturday morning and I am very much awake already (surprise!).

I wanted to celebrate the spectacular failure of my W-Log posts today. It seems like none of my task-logging mechanisms work. This is getting insane. I don’t seem to follow my diet and/or workout plans either. And I wanted to enjoy the undisciplined whim my soul has taken upon itself.

W-Log #4

8:55 am

Good morning everyone!

I am awake and ready to leave for office (thank God, it’s only ten minutes away). The main thing that is keeping me going today is forgiveness. I forgive myself for being such a procrastinator. I forgive myself for failing in a lot of my plans the past three days. I forgive my pressing needs for pushing into the time that I could be doing my fun tasks. I forgive everything.
