3 days in the city away from the noise!!!!

There are ideas waiting to explode on paper, there are scenes waiting to be lived, there are characters churning in my mind…. The story writer in me reminds me often, its high time to complete the book that I have always wanted….Ya, I know! I sigh! I keep telling myself the day is not far I will hold it soon because I have nursed this dream for long now but I am half done yet. I am sure we have similar stories as aspiring authors.

The mundane routine, the household chores, the commitments at work, and the two lives that we live does not bless us with enough time for us. And I am yet to come at peace with mind and soul and be lost in my writings. I dream of days when I could write all day and be disturbed by none. I need someone to hone my skills and help me Did some one say I need a sabbatical?  Oh! thats a long wait…maybe, maybe not!

Love for Writing and getting Published couldn’t have met anything better than this. And  I came across the below program through a common friend and took no time in dialing the number. The conversation has really been convincing. Give it a try right away!!!


The three day event is absolutely awesome. I am quite excited to join it. The purpose of writing my post is that I wanna share this with all my friends. I really hope its turns out useful and wonderful.  Will definitely write about my experience there.
