I’m pleased to
share an essay of mine after quite a long gap. The HerStry blog had put out a call for
submissions matching the May theme of motherhood. I sent in my submission and
in ten days I got the happy news that it was accepted for publication.
In the beginning of 2012, shortly after attending a writing workshop with the fabulous Anil Menon, I revised a story that had been critiqued at the workshop and sent it out to one of my favourite literary magazines – Bartleby Snopes. Within a day I received an acceptance together with some editorial suggestions.
That story was Social Not-working, centered on the perils of social media. The story also made it to their Best of collection for the year.
Bartleby Snopes recently started a series of interviews with former contributors who have books out. I am pleased to share that my interview with Bartleby Snopes is up on their blog. Check it out and tell me what you think!
In other exciting news, I am pleased to share that I am part of a new anthology that’s scheduled to launch on 30th April – Only Trollops Shave above the Knee! We have all learnt so much from our mothers, so what could more fitting than a tribute to them for Mother’s Day!
Apart from all the news, life chugs along as usual. I am reading a little (finished TFIOS – The Fault in Our Stars and loved it!), writing more than I read, and submitting and acquiring tower-high piles of rejection slips, with a few acceptances sprinkled here and there for garnishing.
Tell me, everyone – what’s all the hot news with you?
