Storizen, an Indian literature magazine, showcases newly released books, book reviews, authors’ interviews and almost about anything and everything to do with books. Catch the latest issue of July 2013, featuring an article of mine - Top 10 Writing Hurdles - based on my experiences. If you write fiction, regardless of what topic/genre you write on, you must have faced at least one of these! None of these will zap you or surprise you. In all probability, these are already familiar to you. But many a times, we forget the simplest of things; the simplest of rules. So here's a simple reminder, a revision of sorts.

At the end of the day, remember.
This is how you do it. You sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until it’s done. It’s that easy, and that hard. – Neil Gaiman.

You can access the July 2013 issue here. What are your thoughts?

I would love to hear your views!


  1. Off to reading it :)

  2. going to be read it right now!

  3. I think Gaiman got it right. There's no magic to it. If you want to write, you need to put words down, one after the other. If you do not actually do that, then you're not a writer, no matter what you imagine in your head.

    I have atleast two friends who fashions themselves writers, yet none of them actually WRITE anything. In my mind, they're not writers then. In contrast, I've also got friends who do not consider themselves writers, but who writes stories, letters, articles, blog-posts totalling hundreds of pages every year.

    I'm in the latter category. I'm not a writer, and I don't think I'll ever be. But I do write a lot.
