So far, whenever I have submitted my writings to a magazine, contest, literary agents or even publishing houses, all I received were rejections. Hence, when the submission to Spark Magazine was a go, I was too stunned to even react! It is only now after three rounds of edits, publication date having passed 48 hours and having refreshed their webpage for the September issue multiple times to confirm that it really happened, has the feeling sunk in that I have been published by a magazine! ❤ Thank you to the team at Spark! ❤
Yayyyy! You see that? Now read it here!
I hope the run continues for a long, long time now and that every publish of mine, little or big, gets me as excited and makes me work as hard, like this one. There is no success sweeter than the one that requires the sweat rolling, not literally, of course!
P.S.: Waiting for your feedback!

2014 has been a year of massive ups and downs, myriad problems with countless solutions, new dreams have been laid, old ones put aside, new people to embrace, old friends coming together again!
With the last five days left, I am going to put in a post each day (no order, randomly random) thanking my stars for the lessons learnt and the life lived!
Today I have a friend to thank for the task I’ve set my eyes upon! I finally started writing a book. For many years, I’ve been wary of whether I can write a book, how good it will turn out to be or how the readers are going to react. But now, I am not afraid to try. Yes, I am still wary but I ain’t afraid. I have a story I want to share and I will. Whether the book does turn out to be successful or not is another matter altogether but that is not what’s playing on my mind as I am penning a little part of it each day.
P.S. : What’s been your happy moment in 2014? Can you come up with a life changing moment of your own?
