Good evening my dear people,
To begin with – Thank you so much!
Actually, a big bow of gratitude – from me to you – for all the love showered on me while I went offline. Thank you for missing me, sending messages, and asking about me. I have received messages on my social media DMs but my mailbox was full. So, if you wrote an email to me or used the ‘contact’ box on this page, your message did not reach me. I have now rectified the issue. And as always, I feel overwhelmed!
I’m truly blessed to have a big bunch of people watching my back, and looking forward to my work.
I received a lot of messages in the last week from readers who got notifications that this website was going offline. Thank you so much for bringing this to my notice. I got the notification too. I tried making the payment to retain the domain name and site plan, but some changed rules and policies wouldn’t let me do it. Finally, I had a chat with the WordPress team and they sorted out the issue for me.
That brings me to the message that I want to convey – today and always – I Will Always Be Here!
This site is not going anywhere. I’m very much here. And I’m just a message away.
I haven’t been posting on the blog, no story or article, etc. for a really long time because of several reasons.
Firstly, I am at a very crucial phase of a major transition in my professional life. I have been working on some projects and I feel like I’m almost there, at the edge of the cliff, on the verge of realising my dreams. I was hoping to post here once I cross the threshold and show the results. Until then, I’m trying to keep quiet about it.
So, hopefully, I’ll share my journey with you a few days from now. *Keeping fingers crossed* 🤞
I need all your prayers and wishes.
The second reason is the relevance of social media. A lot of times things stop making sense to you. This time, social media is that ‘thing’ for me. And these days are those times when I wanted to step away and detox.
For me, social media is a tool to listen to my tribe, ie all of you, to give back all the love I receive, to address your queries and concerns and to announce my works.
Other than this, I don’t have much to flaunt about my life, no ideologies or passions extreme enough to indulge in needless, mindless debates, and most of all, I have no point to prove to anyone.
I didn’t want to unknowingly, or subconsciously, slip down the spiral route of finding an escape into the folds of social media. I needed to process my dreams and focus on them. So, I deliberately stopped posting on my social media handles and thereby, stopped checking them. I can say that the break worked wonders for me. And it also tells me that I am not addicted 😊
Big relief… haha…
This is also the reason I delayed the sequel of Spark & Spice. I didn’t want to do a hurried job. More Spark, Extra Spice is very close to my heart. It’s too precious to be given second-hand treatment.
I’m still on my way and haven’t yet reached my destination to achieve all that I had set out for. At the risk of sounding immodest, I must confess that it took immense hard work and mammoth-sized courage to venture into something this big. Having said that, most of my work on my professional projects is almost done. So, I can now focus on More Spark, Extra Spice. I hope for it to release in the coming few months.
Both of my books – The Masquerade and Spark & Spice – have been doing really well.
Thanks to all of you. You all are superstars 💫✨
If you’ve read the entire thing and reached the end of this post, it tells me that you are an amazing person who has always followed me and stood by my side. Sending you a bunch of good wishes. I’m grateful for all your love and presence!
Do let me know how you are doing in life. I look forward to hearing from you.
Loads of love 💖💖💖
