We all have our own precess, our own formula of to approach a task and accomplish it.Self-publishing, if you are serious about it is a daunting one-man show. Especially if you do everything by yourself.I have a checklist, everything is like a milestone in a marathon.But you need to envision the finishing line.If you don't... Continue Reading →
Weird things happen after midnight in my life. I met a friend here like 2 years back. She very randomly reached out when I was going through a lot. My mom's loss was fresh and my dad wasn't able to deal with it. Devastated is a very small word for my state at that point.... Continue Reading →

I don’t do reviews…
But (you know one was coming). I just sat down to read ” Swinging Sanity” a book of poetry by my friend N. F. Mirza, who I know as ‘stoneronarollercoaster’ at WordPress.
I’ve known her for a while and found out she was a writer and now a published poet. Her book is a small volume. But it’s full to bursting with poetry full of emotion. As she moves through life, using it to discover her mental health and wellbeing.
The poems are forceful, I’m no poetry critic, but I found them easy to read. Some of them touched raw nerves, and you can see her heart torn open in many of them. I particularly liked Ocean and I become one.

Now, I’m going to share my experience. First of, it was crazy ecstatic amazing ride! It's been an exhausting week. Drained all of... Continue Reading →
