I hope all of you are doing well in your individual spheres, personally, professionally, with studies, or family.
Today is not an update day but since today is Sunday, I just dropped by to talk to all of you who make my blog so beautiful just by the your presence. Can’t thank you enough for that.
It has been days since we talked about random things in our lives. I do try to reply to comments on my updates, as regularly as I can. As that is the only way I can be in touch with you. I’ve read comments on last part of BEB but yet to reply to last few comments.
Last year was a roller coaster for all of us. Each one of us faced a different challenge, fought through tough circumstances, struggled with financial, or health issues. But there were some positive things too. We got more time to evaluate our life decisions, plan the future, study, and above all – we learnt to deal with difficult times in our own unique way.
Experiences teach us the most. So, I guess, we had our share of experiences to grow stronger and smarter.
I was mainly home-bound, like everyone else, for most of the year. I changed the perspective of viewing things in my professional space, and adjusted to tele-consultation as a new way of consulting. Now, that the life is returning to normal, and I’ve shifted to a new city, my online consultations remain the same. So, it worked for better for me.
In dealing with new situations, and due to some hiccups, my next book ‘Spark & Spice’ got delayed. I let it go because I didn’t want any pressure to affect my work. So, I let it sit for 2 months. And now, I’ve picked it up again.
I cannot wait to share the book with you because I’m having a blast re-reading Spark & Spice, and polishing it to be a novel. I’ve added many new scenes, and as usual, I’ve crossed the word count… haha…
So, I might post some of the new scenes here on the blog, the ones which don’t make it to the final book. It was a journey that is etched in my memories. And to be able to revisit them is pure bliss.
I became so obsessed with it again that I’m planning a new season of Spark & Spice. Still planning. Not finalised.
I will post it here after my current work is over.
I was thinking what I will do after I finish writing Beyond Every Border. I have a short story – The Size of Love – to finish, of which 7 parts are posted already. Then, there is another book – Love, Lies, Etc. – which I will continue here. Lastly, the new season of Spark & Spice. I’m not sure which one I will begin first. I’m totally impulsive when it comes to writing. Since it is not my full-time job, I can take the liberty to go as my heart says 🙂
I’m hoping for a May release of the book, now. I’m sad not being able to use Manik and Nandini as names. But since I’m editing off and on, since 4-5 months now, I am falling in love with the names Virat and Niyati. Hope you fall in love with these names, too.
I’ll share more about other characters of the story, their new names, new scenes, and more about the book every Sunday, here on this blog. So, watch out this space for further info. And if you have any questions to ask, I’m right here. 🙂
(Emojis not working on my blog… I feel so bad, I’m not able to send hearts, heart-eyes, and hugs to all of you…haha…)
Lastly, you need to tell me one positive thing that happened with you in past one year, or one good thing you did, learnt, or gained.
Please share. Let’s spread some positivity and happiness.
Love you all. Take care. Lots of good wishes. and gratitude.
