July IWSG Post – What are your Ultimate Writing Goals?


I completely forgot that today was the first Wednesday of the month and that it was IWSG posting day. I was on my evening walk when I realized it. I rushed home and checked the IWSG website for the question of the month and here I’m typing out my post. Last month I was organized and this month completely disorganized.

IWSG (Insecure Writers Support Group) is an online community of writers, posting on the first Wednesday of every month, our posts are usually related to our writing. The IWSG website has amazing posts on writing and publishing.

The credit for creating IWSG goes to Ninja Captain Alex J Cavanaugh (author of the Amazon Bestsellers: CassaStar, CassaStorm, CassaFire and Dragon of the Stars). Alex is multi-talented, a multi-tasker, one of the kindest people I know online, he is also a fantastic musician, a great writer and a wonderful human. Thanks to Alex, IWSG has become a welcome therapy for us writers.

The July 4th IWSG Question is “What are your ultimate writing goals, and how have they changed over time (if at all)?

My ultimate writing goals are to write many, many books, across genres, and this goal has been a constant. Its another matter that I haven’t yet achieved it. But, I’m working towards it.

Looking forward to reading what all your writing goals are.
P.S. I completely forgot that we were supposed to post on 3rd July.

June IWSG Post – What’s Easy, Book Titles or Character Names

For a change I scheduled my IWSG post one day in advance. And I’m proud of that fact that I’ve become a teeny-weeny bit organized. I can’t believe that its the sixth IWSG of 2018. IWSG (Insecure Writers Support Group) is an online community of writers, posting on the first Wednesday of every month, our posts are usually related to our writing. The IWSG website has amazing posts on writing and publishing.

The credit for creating IWSG goes to Ninja Captain Alex J Cavanaugh (author of the Amazon Bestsellers: CassaStar, CassaStorm, CassaFire and Dragon of the Stars). Alex is also a fantastic musician and a wonderful human. He had this great idea of starting this group, to help writers talk of their fears, worries and insecurities. Thanks to Alex, IWSG has become a welcome therapy for us writers.

June 6 question – What’s harder for you to come up with, book titles or character names?

Actually both book titles and character names are easy for me. Infact the moment a story pops up in my mind, it arrives accompanied with its title and the names of the central characters. Very rare do I have trouble thinking of book/story titles or character names. I’m lucky that way. Wish the plotting too was so easy!

I look forward to reading what comes easy for you all.

May 2 IWSG Post – Does Spring Inspire you to Write?


I usually schedule my IWSG posts atleast a couple of days before. But as I completely forgot about the May 2nd IWSG post, it’s a last minute one. I think I’m still in April mode. The fifth IWSG of 2018 has knocked on our doors. IWSG (Insecure Writers Support Group) is an online community of writers, posting on the first Wednesday of the month. Our posts are about our writing-related issues and our writing experiences.Visit the IWSG website for the amazing posts.

Ninja Captain Alex J Cavanaugh (author of the Amazon Bestsellers: CassaStar, CassaStorm, CassaFire and Dragon of the Stars) had this wonderful idea of starting IWSG, where we writers can let off all our writing-related steam, in a holistic and healthy way, thereby getting rid of our fears and worries. Writers are so susceptible to anxiety and stress-related issues, that IWSG comes as a wonderful therapy.

I heard doctors all over the world are hunting for Alex, who has cheated them of many patients. Have no fear Alex, no one can touch you or harm you, we all are your bodyguards.

May 2 question - It’s spring! Does this season inspire you to write more than others, or not?

I don’t think Spring inspires me to write more than the other seasons. Nowadays I make it a point to write every day, inspite of the seasons, and irrespective of the time of the day and whether it is weekends or weekdays. Earlier, I would write till evening, reserving the late evenings and nights for reading, but nowadays I write throughout the day and even during the nights and weekends. I think I’m getting more disciplined and committed to writing in this phase of my life.

Looking forward to reading your posts.

P.S. Due to work pressure I’m just posting on IWSG days.
