So you want to start writing a book. However you go about your story, what will really need to capture is a good start – a good first impression. The start is the most important thing – whether it’s a blog post, a movie, a tv show, a book, whatever, if it doesn’t have a good start, people won’t be compelled to go on reading/watching/listening to it. It’s kind of like a blog. Once you’ve driven traffic, you need to sustain it and that will come from the first impression. And that first impression for your book will come from the start. Before you start thinking I’m talking about something I don’t know, I have actually written three books. The third is on its way to shelves. I included this in my about page because I knew I’d need to write about writing, so I’d need to disclose this, but…

An Introvert’s Bucket List. I don’t know if you have or haven’t already gathered from looking at my blog, but I’m an introvert. Um, correction. I used to be an introvert. When it came to socialisation, I was very bad. I couldn’t order food for myself at the restaurant (yes, the situation was that bad), I couldn’t ask an air hostess for water, I couldn’t even ask for the wifi password. But now, I’m very happy to say, that I am an ambivert. I’m not totally outgoing, but at the same time not totally shy. I can with some level of confidence, do all of the above. So if you’re looking for a post that will give you things you can do to become totally outgoing and a complete extrovert, then I’m sorry, but this is not the place for you. But if you’re in search for activities to get…

Creativity Slump. So today we’re going to be talking about creativity and productivity and how to get going when you’re feeling demotivated, aka how to get out of a creativity slump. First of all, creativity is something you have to keep at a steady pace, because if you do too much you burnout and if you do too little, you get carried away. Are you ready for a grandma sentence? Creativity is an ember that you need to keep on igniting again and again, but put it out it every time it it starts to spread. Today I’m going to be sharing some tips on how to get back in the mood. I’m also going to later do a post on how to avoid creativity slumps (I’m not even sure if that’s an actually term, but we’re just going to go with it). MY DEFINITION OF A CREATIVITY SLUMP In…

How to start a bullet journal is a very common blog post title idea but what a lot of people want to know is the why part of it all? So today’s post is going to be again on bullet journalling. As you may not know if you aren’t following me on twitter, I am obsessed with bullet journals and diaries and anything involving a cute, decorated notebook. I started it about two weeks ago now, or maybe three, I can’t remember, but I haven’t looked back since. I love every piece of it. Some of those pieces are down below, some aren’t. But I really wanted to share this with others because bullet journalling has really helped me out a lot. So let’s get in 5 reasons why you should start a bullet journal. 1 IT’S FUN TO BULLET JOURNAL This is the first and foremost thing you need…

Couple of weeks ago, I found a beautiful blog that belonged a girl named Megan Shaefer. When I came across it, it just so happened to be the perfect timing. I found it to be full of bullet-journal posts. At that time I had absolutely no clue to what bullet journals were but a few posts in, I decided I needed a bullet journal, not because my life was disorganised or anything, but because it seemed fun. And a little more planning can go a long way.  At the time I found this post I was about to have my exams, and I thought it would be a good way to organise not only my study plan but my weeks, days, months, years, thoughts, habits, moods and everything I wanted to keep track of. So went to the market, bought a notebook and a pen and started writing. I followed…
