Hey! In case my spamming on every social network and group didn't make it blindingly obvious, I'd love for you to come to @mishtidance on 30th Nov at @poplarunion. I know we creatives say this a lot but it really is going to be special (for me anyway looolll), because over the last few weeks, the incredible @ranitshail and I have been working on creating a 60 minute Indo-Western musical spoken word experience, and it is filling my heart beyond capacity. We're not the first to do it but gahhhh it feels sooo new and shiny. Definitely feeling more creative and I've been writing every day!?!...which I haven't been able to say wholeheartedly in forever!
PSA for writers stuck in a rut, collaboration is key!!!! When you're working with someone who gets your work, you're no longer at the centre of it; you become an accomplice in building trust and creative chemistry... It's always easier to help someone than to help yourself, right? That's why networks like @tattvaauthors work so well; they force writers to critique and support one another and play a part in each other's literary success... Alternatively, if you're looking for immediate inspiration, you can always check out episode 11 of @georgethepoet and @benbrick's podcast on Writer's Block, and lemme know if you recognise any familiar voices 😏 @bbcsounds
That's all from me. Hope to see you in 2 weeks!!! 🥰

Speak sweet nothings when you whisper in her ear. .
I got to bed later than I planned, but I decided to get up early anyway and make a little magic on my current WIP.
I turned on Focus from 4:00 AM to 1𝟐:00 PM with very few breaks (this being one of those breaks). I camped out in Write or Die. I almost didn't know what to do with myself with so much productive time on my hands, and all my distractions removed.
For a moment, I felt kind of desperate, like Tom Hanks in Castaway when he's trying to make the fire, but then the magic happened.
Ask me what my word count for today is. <3 𝐁𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐲𝐞𝐭, 𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐜𝐤 𝐢𝐧 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐦𝐞 𝐢𝐧 𝐦𝐲 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐞𝐫 𝐠𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐩. Tap the link in my bio for more info -> @cjbeaumontpnr
कुछ कहे बिना भी ये अक्सर बहुत कुछ कैह जाता है ! कुछ सुने बिना भी ये बहुत कुछ सुना जाता है दिल ये बड़ा नादान है । जो अक्सर बिना कहे, बहुत कुछ बयां कर जाता है। यै आवारा बहुत है तभी करता है इतनी बैंकूफियाँ । नज़दीकियों से है बहुत प्यार इसको। तभी दूर जाने से डरता है। दिल ये नादान जो है अक्सर रोते रोते हन्स जाता है! यादें अक्सर रूला जाती हैं इसको । पर ये कभी किसी को रुलाता नही है। अनसुनी बातै सुनना चाहता है ये दिल । कहना चाहता है हर बार की तरह रुक जा! भले कुछ देर के लिए ही सही । ले जाना चाहता है वहां जहां ना कोई फरेब हो ना ही कोई गम । दिल जो है नादान बहुत। उस सवेरे का है इसको इंतजार जहां ना हो कोई बंदिश।
इश्क के पीछे अक्सर ये खुदको फना कर जाता है । दिल है ये नादान कहां समझ पाता है । हर किसी को अपना कहते कहते थक जाता है फिर भी हर कोई इसको छोर जाता है। हर किसी को दुवा मे याद करता है पर इस नादान दिल को कोन याद करता है। उस खुदा से भी बहुत सिफारिस करता है । सलामत रहे हर वो शख्स जो इसको तोड़ने की साजिश करता है दिल ये नादान है तभी तो इतना प्यार करता है। ✒✉ Anuj ❤🌹❤ .

Another incredible day!
We are so happy to announce that we, @pennyformythoughts__ and @allyouneedisalilbitofsugar were the finalists of LitMart at the @blrlitfest this year!!! A couple of weeks ago, we had submitted the excerpt from our upcoming project to the LitMart team. We were so incredibly surprised and ecstatic to get a mail from them announcing us as finalists for this year. It was such an honor to get the opportunity to pitch our idea in front of such an esteemed panel of judges! Dream come true!
The results are yet to be announced, but we are just as excited about the idea we had pitched.
Thank you all, our Instagram community, for inspiring us to become better writers. We have such amazing stuff coming your way.
I know we all say that we should tell the truth no matter how hard it is. It may hurt for some time but then you gonna heal. But my issue is if you are already hiding the truth why disclose it at the wrong time. At the end, the truth is bound to come out. But you've waited a bit why not a little more? We never know that whether that person is already going through something or has something important due... So why not wait for the right time? I know it sounds weird but sometimes a truth heard at the wrong time hurts way more than expected. But when heard at the right time, we are mentally prepared and strong enough to confront it. It's just a matter of timing. Whether we can use it properly. Besides, it is better not to have that kind of situation in our life...

Inspiration comes from, well..... everywhere! I find that pieces of my life, people I’ve met, experiences I’ve had, seem to find their place in my novels. Little bit here, little bit there. Especially character influence. It’s funny to go back and read your work and see a piece of your sister here, your neighbor there. The world around us is a constant surplus of inspiration, so friends and foes beware! 😆 Anything you say or do could be put in print!
Have you found pieces of your life in your stories?
World ≈ Society/Social Constructs. Mind the date because I would have rewritten this if the words came to me today. Beauty is never skin deep. Only upon noticing the oneness of all that is and the reflection of yourself in another human, do you realize that our physical vessels are only meant to encompass the Soul, allow for human experience in this Life and express the infinite diversity we happen to be a part of. It is all beautiful, dwelling amongst the unconscious thoughts, surrounding the chaos. There is only beauty. The limiting perceptions of attraction deceive the true abundance of love.
