What to write in your book’s “Acknowledgement”

If there's anything a writer dreads more than a writer's block, it's perhaps writing the acknowledgement for his masterpiece. No matter how many hundreds and thousands of acknowledgements you may have gone through, you are almost always bound to rest your fingers on the keyboard and think hard before starting on writing your own. I think acknowledgement has a similar affect on people when they are asked,"please tell me something about yourself?". This question always has you at a loss. What do you mention? What do you leave out? How much information needs to be revealed and what needs to be kept under the wraps? It's confusing, right? But don't worry, there's always a method to everything and writing an...

Publishing today – A brand new face

Someone really high up on the “food chain” of Publishing once told me that it won’t be long before the Publishing Industry that we know of will soon become a strange new world, and what’s more, we will love the journey as well as the makeover! But I was just a teenager back then, and I dismissed his words. It wasn’t until I started my classes at the publishing school when I realized the sanctity of what he had meant. The Publishing Industry is indeed undergoing a change, evolving, experimenting, growing, taking in new trends and technologies to reveal a side we didn’t anticipate. It’s a rather hyped concept that the Publishing Industry is dying, this industry that has been...

Tackling writer’s block, the effective way!

Writer’s block can be a nuisance when you are on a deadline. I have always found it trying to drag me down when I have the most important things to do.

10 must-dos in your 20s!

One sure thing about life is that it passes right by and we don't even acknowledge it. We take it for granted and go by our routine believing that a bright new day shall dawn upon us somewhere, sometime and we shall be happy then. But till that day arrives in our lives, we must work hard, go by our monotonous life and just wait for it eagerly. But if this is the way one should live, what's the point of this life after all? The 20s are the time when we are at our best. Not so best financially, but we are young, full of energy and our dreams rule our lives. We have just stepped out of our...

Dear readers, It is with great pleasure that we introduce you to our talented Swedish writer, Miss. Linn Bark. We recently published her book “Krigetinuti” (Swedish language).

To begin with, please tell us a little about yourself. My name is Linn Bark. I´m 26 years old and I live in Sweden in a small city called Hallstahammar with my family of two young sons and my husband. I work with music, lead choruses, sing, write, illustrate and much more. 2. When did you realize...

Writing – How it all began

Have you ever wondered what this world would be like if there were no ways to write things down? No books. No kindle readers. No way to preserve the vast literature, history, culture and languages of this world. Nothing with anything written on them! You communicate only verbally, memorize every necessary information because you don't know how to write, in fact, you have never heard of it. No reading or writing — no concept of a place called school. No money around because how do you represent numbers? No signboards anywhere. It won't be chaos, because we would have still survived in a world like that, like our ancient people did. But imagine the inconvenience the sheer lack of writing...

Who are you?

Once upon a time, there lived a little girl in a small, desolated valley. She had a beautiful cottage in the woods, the huge windows of the cottage gave a rather magnificent view of what lay around her. The valley was unlike any you may have ever known. A beautiful stream flew through it with plenty of fishes swimming by, the jungle that surrounded the valley was so thick there was no way of penetrating through it. You may think the little girl was sad, but she wasn't. She had friends in the valley, there were dogs, cats, rabbits and deer, little cuckoos that sung through the day, sparrows that chirped endlessly, squirrels that came down the trees and ran...
