Podcast: New 2019 Project (preliminary details)

Some initial thoughts about a new literary project: a podcast series on writing and translating craft. This will not be an overnight thing because I intend to do it professionally with planning and preparation. I will be fully transparent in sharing progress publicly because my hope is that it will encourage more literary initiatives across the Indian publishing ecosystem. A rising tide will lift all boats -- I truly believe this. No doubt, there will be some mistakes along the way. But I'm open to feedback and suggestions. Please just be nice about it?

2018: A Year in Writing

Here is my annual roundup of freelance and book writing highs, lows, and other projects in 2018. I also share a list of 12 writing-related essays by other writers that kept me inspired me each month of the year. And, of course, some writing goals for 2019. Here's wishing you all a happy and productive writing year in 2019. Stay tuned for updates and please do share your own goals and progress (here or connect with me on social media).

Marginalia: Journal Prompts (December)

We are at the end of another annual series here. For each month of this year, we've picked a theme for daily journal prompts and, even if you haven't followed along this year, you can always do so when you choose. The themes have been varied -- themes like age/time, memory, vacations, seasons, language, books, productivity, technology, relationships, and more. In this last month, let's go back to each of the previous months, revisit what we wrote, and pick the two or three prompts we'd like to "do over."
