Friday Fictioneers-Cursed

Word Count-100


She is on self-imposed exile.

I watch her taking long walks all alone.

Singing ‘I’m cursed to be alone’.

I tried to be friendly with her but she declined.

She said that she is cursed and everyone she will love or become friendly will die or go away.

She recalls.

First time she cried when her husband died suddenly, then one by one her dear ones died in a procession. Slowly her tears dried. Her eyes were like Dead Sea.  Now no one’s death moves her. There are no tears left in her eyes.

She prefers a lonely life .

( This based on the story of someone I know)

Writing 101: Unlock the Mind

Writing 101: Unlock the Mind

And for your first twist? Publish this stream-of-consciousness post on your blog.

I’m wondering what keeps me from writing. Why my mind blocks the moment I think of writing something. Is it that I find nothing interesting in my life to share with others or I’m afraid that others will laugh on reading my post. Though I find friends here at word press very encouraging. Still i wonder should i torture them with my writing. Even if someone criticises it is for good as it helps you to improve your writing. One friend in fact said that while reading post he thought he was going through grocery list. was I angry? No. I thanked him for pointing it out. One more comment i got that my blog is a  boring. I think all comments good or bad help you. More criticism makes you try to improve yourself. I always welcome comments with tips to improve my writing. In previous session of Writing 101 few friends really helped me with wonderful tips. Also reading others blog helps immensely. I get to know that there are many ways to write a prompt. I don’t know my writing has improved or not but I have made many wonderful encouraging friends here also I get to read many excellent writing and get inspired by them. Writing for 20 minutes on this topic is very difficult. At least for me as on some daily prompt I find nothing more than  just ‘yes’ or ‘no’ . I think the biggest block in writing is lack of ideas and that’s where the Writing 101 helps. It gives one prompt daily. My drawback is that I take too much time to think on the subject and when I could come up with something, I’m late by two or three prompts. Still four minutes to go. It seems I am sitting in school exams, time is running away and my mind is blocked.

Daily Prompt- To-Do? Done!

Posted on

Daily Prompt- To-Do? Done!- Quickly list five things you’d like to change in your life. Now, write a post about a day in your life once all five have been crossed off your to-do list.


Given a chance I would exchange my unhealthy body with perfectly healthy one.

Sickness is the root cause of my laziness, procrastination, depression, bad time management and ill temper and much more.

How I would like to change everything and become a cheerful, healthy, hard working person.

At least for one day I would like to I wake up without any pain, any uneasiness, very fresh and cheerful, to a very pleasant weather. I want to sing, dance, go for a walk, swim in the sea, and play with sand. There is so much I would like to do.

Just for today when I can write off all the negativity and fill my life with all the positive pleasant emotions.

I will,

Turn anger into peace

Fear into trust

Sorrows into happiness

Worry into caring

Mistrust into faith

Ingratitude into gratitude

Share peace and happiness with everyone

Pass on this day’s cheerfulness to others.

Happy Anniversary

HappY Anniversary! You registered on 3 years ago.

I registered on 3 years ago! It’s ‘Happy Anniversary!’ today.

Am I happy That I registered with

Yes, very much. It has given me a chance to write about some topics which I thought I could never write with Daily Prompts especially about myself.

Writing about myself I discovered that I have some positive qualities as well as some negative also which I overlooked before.

I started writing with few lines and now I can write short stories.

I made so many friends here who encouraged me to write by appreciating posts with positive comments.

I get to read many excellent posts by other blogger friends.

Weekly Photo Challenges  helped me to  discover my love for photography.

Thanks to Team, and  to help me publish ove 500 posts which itself is a miracle for a non-writer like me and the full credit goes to

Thanks a lot for reminding me friends.

I’m grateful for your help and support.

Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Clouds

The sky, a perfect empty canvas, offers clouds nonetheless. They shift and drift and beg interpretation… such is the nature of art. ~Jeb Dickerson

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. ~Rabindranath Tagore

I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers,
From the seas and the streams;
I bear light shade for the leaves when laid
In their noonday dreams….
~Percy Bysshe Shelley, “The Cloud”
