A Month of Mini Writing Challenges 2017-Day 21

Write a story in 25 words or less about a book.

A book is not just a book if it teaches you about friendship, love, and mysteries of life. It becomes a solace.

Books were my companion, my teacher, my solace. They taught me about the mysteries of love and life.

The Daily Post- Borrowed

The Daily Post- Borrowed

Books borrowed never came back.

Some denied even taking them

Was it my fault to believe in  sharing is caring?

What a fool I was.

Now faith shattered,I hide new purchase from everyone.

It’s better to be considered not caring.

Or I’m wrong again?

Daily Prompt- Off the Shelf

Posted on

Daily Prompt- Off the Shelf–  Take a look at your bookcase. If you had enough free time, which book would be the first one you’d like to reread? Why?

 

I ask myself ‘ which book would be the first one you would like to reread ?’

Tough question as my bookcase has all my favorite books which I purchased with  money I saved and spent on books instead of cloths. Osho, Paulo Coelho, Deepak Chopra, Dale Carnegie, Robin Sharma, Brian Tracy and many more have accompanied me for many years. I never get bored reading anyone from these. I have some light comedy, suspense, detective novels also which I purchased with clear intention that they are not just one time read. Read and throw away time. I never waste money on them. Sorry, I’m drifting away.

My first purchase was ‘ STOP WORRYING AND START LIVING’ . I stumbled upon this book in my friends place and got hooked to it.

I never believe in asking solutions for my problems to others. I believe every problem comes with a solution.

I got this book at a time when my son joined Indian Navy, my daughter got married, my husband is somewhat workaholic and I was suffering from chronic some diseases and was very depressed, always worrying.

This book came as a boon to me. There are not only causes and analysis for worries but simple solutions and stories of other sufferer and how they could come over their worries.

When you read about others problems then only you realise that how tiny or petty are your problems.

Little understanding, not running away from problems, facing them, trying to find a solution, little exercise and meditation all helps.

So when I find time I reread this and one more ‘Maximum Achievement’ by Brian Tracy and recommend to others also.

.Writing 101, Day Thirteen: Serial Killer II

Earlier in the course, you wrote about losing something. Today, write about finding something. For your twist, view day four’s post and today’s post as installments in a series.

 

Soul Mate

 

After coming back from a short trip I found my friend missing. I was shocked. It was a mere doll, it could not go anywhere on its own. My sis-in-law swore that no one touched my belongings when in my absence so there was nothing I could do except mourning.

My mother and sisters tried to console me, they offered to buy a new doll but as I was a grown up then, I declined and tried to shift my attention to something else.

We were not rich but my parents never hesitated to spend some money in comics and magazines. My uncle used to bring novels from a library. Previously I never paid much heed to them but now encouraged by my mother started devoting my time to them.

I was not disappointed. They helped me overcome my grief. There were other friends also but books were the only one to which I can turn up anytime, whenever I was depressed.

Now they books were my soul mate and this was the beginning of an everlasting friendship.

 

 

 

Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience- this is the ideal life. ‘Mark Twain’
