You Wrote How Much?

I’m now looking forward to everyone else’s entries too. How much writing did you get done this week?


  1. Hi Gargi… I think you did a decent amount of writing. Journal writing is a wonderful thing. Loved your previous post on horrroscopes….. oops I mean horoscopes. They are never right. But I still read them religiously. 🙂

    Your blog is taking a long time to connect. I even went to Madeleine’s blog fest to click on the linkie with your URL, but it still didn’t connect. Please check it and let me know why its taking so long to connect. Its happening a lot with few blogs on wordpress.

    Have a great writing week!


    1. Thanks, Rachna! LOL on the ‘horrorscopes’!

      The WordPress thing is really frustrating if its taking time. Let me log an issue in their forums and try to locate the problem. Sorry for the inconvenience!


  2. Wow, I’m impressed with your writing, Gargi! All this while holding a regular job is amazing. So many essays in such a short time! Good luck with them and all the writing you do.


    1. Wow, thank you, Hash! That means a lot to me. Honestly speaking, it’s only this year that my essay-writing output has skyrocketed, but that’s probably because I’m choosing topics I really want to write about.

      Thanks for the wishes! Wish you all the best for your writing as well!
