Keep Calm and Write On! (Part 1/3)

You could say November and December were wordless months; I know I definitely feel this way. As per my last post, the three weeks I spent in Honduras with my family were blissful. Family time is always a gift. I haven’t written much, but much has happened in the past four weeks. To begin with,Continue reading “Keep Calm and Write On! (Part 1/3)”

Em’s Extra-ordinary Weeks November 29th

Hola dear readers, I know I have been wordless for a while. It was definitely not on purpose. I came to San Pedro Sula, Honduras (my hometown) almost two weeks ago. In 7 years, this is the longest time I have stayed in a single visit. I wanted to come to have extended quality withContinue reading “Em’s Extra-ordinary Weeks November 29th”

Accio Inspiration Part II

In my last post, I told you that some days, I wish I could just cast the “Accio” charm and make inspiration come to me. I have been dedicated solely to writing for almost two months now. On the days where I do not write because-simply put-nothing comes out, I usually feel frustrated and annoyedContinue reading “Accio Inspiration Part II”

Accio Inspiration Part I

Accio is a word from the Harry Potter world. It is used as a charm that summons an object towards the caster. For it to work, the object must be clear in the caster’s mind before trying to summon it. When it comes to inspiration, more often than not, I feel like a caster. IContinue reading “Accio Inspiration Part I”

About the rush, whirlwinds and taking a “writer’s day”…

This particular post has been circling my mind for the past week and a half. It has been hard to organize my thoughts and put these reflections in writing. Every time I work on a post, I try my best to tell a story. My preferred tone is the one that sounds like if weContinue reading “About the rush, whirlwinds and taking a “writer’s day”…”

Riddles & Explanations

It has been surprisingly difficult to process the fact that I completed a marathon. Part of me even feels we did not celebrate properly; it feels like it didn’t actually sink in. In the past few days, I have kept repeating myself: “Yes, you ran 42 kilometers, yes, you finished the race”. I remember thatContinue reading “Riddles & Explanations”

Chapters: Life and Written Ones

Copenhagen, Denmark has been our home for three weeks now. We have done a lot, but mostly we have learned a lot. I have learned a lot-about the city, hygge, the dynamics of living here and about myself. Last week I finished the third chapter of my non-fiction book. This book is my main projectContinue reading “Chapters: Life and Written Ones”

Embracing Hygge Part II

While searching for my ideal routine, I took a run/walk mid-morning last week. It was around 11:00 a.m. and the day could only be described as beautifully grey. Near our home there is a lake with a one-mile loop, it has quickly become one of my favorite spots to run, walk or read. That morningContinue reading “Embracing Hygge Part II”

Embracing Hygge-Part I

I can officially say that my new home (since last week, actually) is the lovely Scandinavian city of Copenhagen. Capital to Denmark, the city sits on the coastal islands of Zealand and Amager. Aside from the ultra-brief geography lesson you just read above, this is what I have discovered and learnt so far: If youContinue reading “Embracing Hygge-Part I”

My Morrie’s last Tuesday

What book would you take to a deserted island? Or, if you were forced to read only one book for the rest of your life, what would it be? My answer to these questions till the end of my time would be: Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. Tuesdays with Morrie is a beautifully writtenContinue reading “My Morrie’s last Tuesday”
