Musings: Oh, 2015!

Dear 2015, 
You were possibly one of the best years of my life. I don't know if I'll ever be able to tell you in words how much I love you. 
Let me tell you 10 Reasons as to why I have loved you so much. 
1. The Rajasthan Trip 

2. The Mumbai Trip

Meeting Akanksha after eight long years in Mumbai. 

3. Treading the waters for Self-Publishing 

4. Completing MPhil thesis on time and submitting it too. 

5. Getting featured in Times of India 
6. When Our Worlds Collide - the second work of fiction being recognized :)) 

6. Playing Secret Santa with Bibliobibulis 
7. Meeting some very amazing people too (look, you know who you are.) 
8. Not where I want to be, but so very glad I am not where I used to be. 
9. My life finally feels like it's headed in the right direction. 
10. I am still very much me. The essence of 'Aniesha' will never go away. I'll always try to retain what makes me, me. No matter how much I change...
Here's hoping 2016 is going to be as full of joy as 2015.…

Musing: Year End Resolutions

Today is the second last day of 2015 and guess what...I still have 10 things that I need to do before I run of time. And as ridiculous as every single one the items are on the list I had my own reasons for penning them down: 
(Don't judge me.)

I'm pretty sure the last one is going to make you all go, "Whaaaaaa------???" But before all your brains begin to device and concoct theories which in reality make zero sense, let me explain it. 
The love letter is for myself. I intend to write a love letter for my future self. You're probably going to roll your eyes at this statement and say, "Ha ha! Don't lie to us, Aniesha." The only response I have to that is, "I'm not going to waste my time explaining this to you. Moving on." 
But in case you guys want to do this, it's called writing a love letter to yourself. I know it sounds weird and borderline insane, but it's a really good idea to write about all the good things about yourself,…

#Ask Aniesha: When Our Worlds Collide

I had asked the readers of When Our Worlds Collide that they could ask me questions on twitter, with the hashtags #AskAniesha and #WOWC.

Here are your answers!!! 
@sachinprabhu007 asked: (Sachin)
Do you have a travel diary like Zayn? 
Answer: No, I don't. But I do know someone who does. :))

What inspired you to write this book?
Answer: I wrote it to help myself think a little clearly about things. I was living vicariously through Akriti. 
What was the most difficult phase that you faced while writing this book?
Answer: The scenes with Akriti's dad. It used to leave me emotionally drained. It's not a nice thing, fighting with one's parents: even fictional. 
What are the themes you would most like to write about in future?
Answer: I want to write about deeper things than just romance. I want to explore things like drug abuse, depression, and bullying etc, with of course a little bit of romance.

Are you hopeful that guys like Ayoub exist?
