How to write a novel in 30 days!

Written By: Aniesha Brahma 

When I was six years old I was convinced the only thing I ever wanted to be when I grew up was a writer. And as I grew up, I tried and failed to finish whatever writing project I started. In my late teens I realized the importance of being disciplined no matter what job you decide to pursue. And even though I learned to be disciplined I never tapped into the art of finishing a novel.

7 Steps to Writing Anything

Written By: Sukanya K Samy

Contrary to what people say, writing skills can be developed and honed. All you need is passion to express yourself in words. I was always a reader, voraciously read what I could get my hands on. And that is how my love for words emerged. I then started participating in essays and debates in school and slowly and steadily learnt to express myself clearly through writing.
