Energy | Poem

I don’t have it.   This force that drives us, it needs a boost, a charge, a jolt.   Mine is depleted, become obsolete, putting me on power-saving.   A jump- start.   A life- saver.   The mundane is covered. The exiting is empty.   Sleep mode might help.   More hours a night,… Continue reading Energy | Poem

Treasury | Writing Exercise

I am a treasure chest; a collection of short tales to delight, I feel displaced and alone. I would rather be where I belong; among those that rustle.

A Small Update!

It’s been a short while since I’ve posted anything creative to my blog here, and there’s a reason for that… I’ve been working to finalise a short story collection after talking about it for a couple of years!! Procrastination is strong, sometimes. As such, my posts here will become a lot more blog-like as opposed… Continue reading A Small Update!

My Writer’s Mission

A little unrelated yet again to what I normally post, but this has been eating away at me for a long time; so much so, that I decided to base my dissertation on it. So, here is an excerpt from my dissertation, which basically explores why I chose to even choose the subject matter to write about.… Continue reading My Writer’s Mission
