I ‘co-wrote my first script’ when I was in the ninth standard. A satire on the popular Star Trek series, it was written over the period of a single week. Over the years, I would continue that trend, writing 'romantic comedy sci-fi action fantasy thrillers' based around my friends during high school and later on, even in medical college.

I'm still waiting for James Cameron to come and direct the movie based on it!
Eighteen years after I wrote that satire in a classroom where I was supposed to be learning algebra and geography, a story of mine did make it to print in 2011. In the three years that have passed since that day, I have been lucky enough to win a few national anthology contests, find my name in print more often and attend book launches at stores.
Indireads asked me if I would like to share any tips on storytelling. I would.
It involves a very simple mantra: Read. Write. Listen. Evolve. Repeat.
My guest post for Indireads deals with what inspired me to dream of getting published someday and how being a blogger helped me achieve that dream.
