Latest Books on Time Travel

As you read through these lines, I’ll be way into the future.
With technological advancements in full swing, in our age, we quite often love to immerse ourselves into the new, imaginative, and creative realms created by the thinkers, visionaries, and dreamers that rock the world every now and then by their ideas. So many of the science fiction fantasies are common realities now. But there is one, about which it has been written since time immemorial, ever since there has been science and fiction, and has not been achieved yet. It still intrigues our minds no matter how many times we come across that same old concept – The Time Travel! It never fails to catch our attention. Ah well, as you read this, I may not have exactly time-traveled, but surely I would’ve moved a few days ahead and that’s the closest time travel I can accomplish right now. Nevertheless, let’s not be disappointed by the poor time travel I can manage today, there are some breath-taking books which can take you right th…

Writing Style

Remember, when you write, you supplement the written proofs of our existence. As soon as you put that ink on paper, you’ve etched a mark of your presence, of human footprint in the physical world. That mark is a testimony of who we are. Your words will travel to places unknown, to people unknown, and to times unknown. They will, most likely, continue to exist even after you. And believe me, with the current trends of self-destruction around the world, they may even be the last vestige of mankind!
Well, that’s extreme, but isn’t it possible? For a writer, who creates and destroys worlds through words, everything is possible. I’ve always had this outrageous thought within me, what if, someday, all that we know today is annihilated? A few thousand years later, some new intelligent form of life pops up to re-populate earth. Or maybe an alien ship, passing across the skies, considers stopping by this beautiful blue planet! All they find is a book! Your book!
Anyway, hope I got your attentio…

What Should I Read?

Well, being an avid reader you are sure what all you want to read, but what should you consider reading when you are a writer? There is no single answer to this. To be frank, read everything you enjoy. Whatever you read is useful, be it - newspapers, magazines, novels, technical papers, economics, history, literature, science, spiritual, etc. Nevertheless, there are certain points you can keep in mind while choosing to read, especially ‘for’ writing.
Let’s start with something interesting - Be an Adventurer!
There is an ocean full of books, authors, and genres available to read. Some may interest you and some may not. An average reader or a writer may stick to a couple of genres or authors. There is a chance that soon, his/her style starts following the same pattern, and remain no longer unique.  So, to excel, to have an edge in your writing, it’s good to explore. Be an adventurer! Swim in different waters. 
No need to go on looking at the ‘top books to read’ lists in each genre, espe…

Writer's Space Time Continuum

A Writer’s World
A writer’s world is complicated. Being one, I’d love to present an unimaginable correlation between a writer’s universe and our physical cosmos. So grab your mugs and sit tight as we enter this space-time continuum, to contemplate a writer’s world.
The analogy could be thought of as having an intergalactic correlation. Like most people, a writer has galaxies worth of thoughts, but unlike most, he/she needs to paint them with words and put them on paper. Out of those innumerable thoughts, only a planetary few worth of ideas actually make it to the paper. And if you are a writer, you know how intricate your world is. Think of the unfathomable big clusters of thoughts as the galaxies, which have innumerable small planets, each resembling an idea. Now, for writing, a writer has to acknowledge the millions of thoughts, classify the little ideas, and then finally select the one he/she wants to garnish and write elaborately.
It’s good to be organized because you know you could…

Challenges faced by a first time writer

Well, I’m back with the some challenges and problems as I promised before, and here’s the next set of tea/coffee for your mind.
I’m not going to write long essays, or deep thought provoking stories here to make you doze off. Every writer, author, in fact, everyone faces some struggles, problems, obstacles, etc. in the course of achieving their dreams. That’s bound to happen, and those are the challenges you need to take up, bet on yourself, and win them!
For the first time writers:
As soon as one decides to be a writer/author, here are some (if not all) straightforward thoughts and fears that come to the mind: ·What am I going to write? oBooks, blogs, papers etc. oIdeas ·Who will publish me? ·Will anyone like my writing? ·Will I actually earn from it? ·I really want to write, but…
Isn’t writer’s block the biggest struggle of a writer? Oh yes, it is! But for that, you need to be a writer first, so we’ll come to that later. To start with, that’s not the worrisome part.
What am I going to write?

Writer?

Hop on with a tea/coffee and a little thought-chat with the text below.
Being a writer is great… It’s an art of putting your thoughts and imagination onto paper. Of course, you already know that. As easy as it may seem, being a professional at writing and inculcating a constant drive to keep writing takes away much of this ‘ease’ factor. Writers do go through their own struggles and problems, but let’s keep that for some other time. And, some nice tips and tricks through this tête-à-tête might, anyway, assist you to maintain that drive and help you reach new heights without falling into some of those quarries.
When I tell someone, ‘I’m a writer’ invariably I get a response, ‘Oh, wow! So working from home now? It must be great - working when you want, as much as you want!’ etc. What a laid-back picture of a writer’s life, I wonder. Being a writer, am sure you can relate, the truth is far away from any of the above (at least for me it is). And first and foremost, to keep going – these ar…
