Finally the day arrived for which foodies and dancers of the family keep their eyes laid. Reception, of course. I was tired attending the large flock of relatives because my stomach was gnawing with hunger. I decided to get my hands of delicious foods, some of which were added on my request. Pav-Bhaji counter it was. In front of which I was standing with a plate, when a girl reaching to my shoulder, of nearly my age came, exhausted. "Bhaiya, butter thoda jyaada daalna aur thoda jaldi dena.",she said the guy managing the Pav-Bhaji pan. She seemed to like food rich in carbs but wasn't fat. She was perfect. I handed her a water bottle on seeing her exhaustion and beautifully adored her gulping down the whole volume of water. "Thanks." , and she turned towards the dance floor. I then knew why she was panting restlessly. I went to the choco-sandwich counter which was in great demand among kids. "Bhaiya Nutella jyaada daalna.", I heard a known voice in unison to mine. There, she was, again. This time, tapping her feet to "Leja Re", the recent release, while waiting for her sandwich. I went to watch her sway the dance floor when my mummy appeared with a lady, completely stranger to me. "Meet Visakha Aunty. She came to see you when you were born.", mummy introduced. "Naina beta idhar aao.Khush raho beta.", Visakha aunty said as I touched her feet. The same foodie-dancer girl approached. "Meet him beta. Tumhare bhaiya hain.", aunty gave my introduction to Naina. "Thanks for the water, bhaiya.", she said in a hurry and rushed to join her friends in the dance floor, leaving my hopes shattered. The girl who was my 'almost-crush' had now become my sister. : : #love #pyaar #mohabbat #lejare #crush #onesidedlove #schoolliferomance #collegeromance #girlfriend #boyfriend #novelwriting #writersofinstagram #lovequotes #writingcommunity #weddingseason #winters #anubhabkelafz #hasikepal #theprojectquote #naina #yehundinokibaathai ๐Ÿ’ž #ishq #romancegenre #internationalwriters
She believes in me. Just got to take my cue from her, sit at my desk each morning like she sits on the cable box, and #write . ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป Slowly, THE WINTER AFFAIR is coming together. Each day I accomplish anything on it, I'm more and more excited for it. Every time I look at my cover for it, I imagine it physically in the hands of readers. ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป You would think that would be enough to keep me motivated, to keep my butt glued to my desk chair and my fingers clacking away at the keyboard until it's finished. ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป Hard truth: IT'S SO NOT THAT EASY! ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป Maybe that's why writing is so rewarding. It's not just the actual amount of time you've spent writing and working on your book but all the time spent battling your self doubt and ultimately pulling through which makes holding your book at the end of it all one of the most amazing feelings you'll ever have. #dontgiveup #motivation #inspiration #chaseyourdreams #makethelifeyouwant #masteryourcraft #indieauthor #indieauthorsofinstagram #writerlife #authorlife #novelwriting #writingstruggles #author #thewinteraffairbook #allthewords #writingdesk #amwriting #amwritingromance
Character development ๐Ÿ–คโฃ Iโ€™m currently 11,000 words into my new novel and wanted to share with you a few facts/traits about my main character. โฃ โฃ When Iโ€™m planning a novel I like to know lots of facts about my characters before I begin but I do find I really get to know them during my first draft. โฃ โฃ Not all the facts will make it into the book but itโ€™s important to me I know the character inside and out. โฃ โฃ Hereโ€™s 5 random facts about my main character. โฃ โฃ How do you develop your characters? โฃFeel free to share 5 random facts about your own protagonist. โฃ ๐Ÿ–คโฃ #writersofinsta #novelwriting #authorsofinstagram #amwriting #characterdevelopment #books #bookstagram #aspiringauthor โฃ โฃ

Novel planning day. ๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ–‹ I'm almost done with planning my novel, so I might actually get started with writing today. Eek. That's the scariest part, but it has to happen. I'm done putting off the things I love and so I'm saying a big 'fuck you' to that self-doubt and worthlessness. Also, I felt rather naturey today, so I'm wearing #mytattydevine hedgehog and harvest wheat earrings. I'm a glitter addict, so I gave them a little surgery. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜…
#merryandwrite ๐Ÿ’ฅDAY 16: DECEMBER GOALS . . My goals were to finish the outline of my current WIP and to start writing the first draft but now I'll be glad if I manage to finish the outline. When you spend a certain amount of time planning a novel there inevitably comes time when you block and it stops being interesting. So now I am giving myself a little rest trying not to think about the novel. But my plans are to at least finish the outline by the end of the year ๐Ÿ™โ˜บ . . #writerlife #amwritingmystery #novelwriting #amwritingfiction #authorsofig #writinglife #authorslife #authorsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #writersofig #aspiringwriter #amwriting #writersoninstagram #amwritingthrillers #writingcommunity #writersofinsta #writerslife #authorlife #writerswrite #mysterywriters #thrillerwriters

People say itโ€™s the bad feelings that cause the most pain, but itโ€™s the good ones that drive you insane. Life is all about taking risks and it requires you to jump. Can't be that person who has looked back and wondered what they would have or could have had. #feelings #drivesyouinsane #novelwriting #goodmemories

Spent the day in NYC today. As I was taking the picture of the Christmas Lights display, I looked across the street and saw the #SimonAndSchuster building. At that very moment, I made a declaration to myself. By 2020, I WILL be a published author! Even if my debut novel isn't published by my dream publisher. It WILL be published! #AJLoves2Write #iWrite #AuthorsOfInstagram #WritersOfIG #WritersOfInstagram #WritersLife #WritingGoals #NovelWriting

Editing a friend's research paper in my Santa pants with a cup of cocoa~ โ˜• I'm also having a sicky movie date with one of my besties, which is where we watch the same Christmas movie at the same time while in our own houses ๐Ÿ˜‚ Even though we can't spend time together physically, I'm glad we can still hang out virtually~ ๐Ÿญ I love editing! Reading other people's work and helping them make it the best it can be is honestly so rewarding. Though I don't have a lot of experience yet, I can only go up from here. I hope to make it huge a part of my literary career down the line~ โœ’ . . . . . #writersofinstagram #writer #writerscommunity #igwriters #bookstagram #writerscorner #instagramwriters #booklove #bookworm #writinglove #writerlife #author #authorgram #writergram #editors #editorsofinstagram #editing #novelwriting #santa #holidays #hotchocolate #candycane #cozy #christmas #christmasmovies #laptop #tistheseason #novelist #sickdays

NaNoWriMo might be long over, but the work isnโ€™t. Still lots of edits and revisions to do to polish this manuscript. #writer #writerslife #manuscript #novelwriting #lifeofawriter
THE END. Four states, three countries, countless cafes, libraries and bookstores...74,761 words. Itโ€™s not over. I still have a LOT of work ahead of me to get this in shape. But for the first time in a LONG time, I have finished a full first draft of a novel. And for the first time EVER, I have poured my whole heart out onto the page, and I have written the book of my soul. I am SO excited for people to read it someday. It hasnโ€™t really sunk in that Iโ€™ve accomplished anything right now, because Iโ€™m on a caffeine high, and I had a great day working with @j.warren.welch on something amazing. But yโ€™all, I do not underestimate that this is a big deal for me, and I am so appreciative to EVERYONE who has cheered me on for this journey. This gives me so much vigor and energy going into 2019...hereโ€™s to a great new year! . #theend #finishedbook #author #authorsofinstagram #bookstagram #amwriting #amwritingya #ya #yaauthor #yacontemporary #writer #writersofinstagram #authorsofig #writersofig #storytelling #yafic #yalit #teenlit #teenfic #youngadult #youngadultfiction #novel #novelwriting #debutnovel #justwrite #scrivener
Pretty notebooks and donuts. What more could a girl ask for? I have recently finished writing the first draft of my first novel, and I am over the moon. Sure, it needs a lot of fixing and rewriting, but I've shovelled the sand into the bucket, now I get to make the sandcastles. However, I have not been ready to begin the whole rewriting process, to change so much.. Its such a daunting thought and task that I've kind of been avoiding it all together. Any advice on how to get past that? . . . . #writerlife #amwriting #writersofinstagram #novelwriting

Self-Love Sunday: Brag on Yourself! #fantasywipdecember โ € โ € A week ago today, I launched my very first book: a collection of fantasy short stories titled The Silver Queen and Other Dragon Tales! So far, it already has 9 positive reviews on Amazon.com, plus a few more in the international stores and on Goodreads! Iโ€™m proud of the positive feedback my book has received, but Iโ€™m even more proud of the fact that I finally worked up the courage to follow my dream of being a fiction author. I am now officially a published author!

Samantha isn't your typical female. She's infiltrated the world of high performance cars and dominates the LA scene of illegal street racing. She lives for the weekends where she gets to unleash the beast on those who doubt her. Sam takes pride in her car and the hard work she's put into it, but all that doesn't keep boys from being boys, now does it? Witty little Sam doesn't keep her mouth shut for no one. Sam handles any challenge on the streets head on and believes that when it comes to racing, you better put your money where your mouth is. #lifeafterthepast #samantha #novelwriting #writer #aspiringauthor #fiction #fictionwriting #protagonist #anatagonist #carracer #carfanatics #racewars #action #romance #illegalstreetracing #highperformancecars #inspired #writersofinstgram #writing #writerslife #writerscommunity #writinginspiration #chasingthedream #writinglife #writingcommunity #writersofig #romance #mywriting #gothamwriters #fanfiction #booklover
