"People always ask me "when do you find time to write?" I used to say, oh on Saturday afternoons or 4 hours here and there and I don't procrastinate and... then I realized the secret. Whenever, and wherever I can. I write on airplanes…"

"It is apparent that some genres do pretty well in the indie book world:  thrillers, mysteries, dystopic scenes, paranormal, romance, soft porn,  and certain kinds of non-fiction, for example.  When I read with envy of a writer, female…"

Virginia Wo olf’s nineteenth-century declarative essay, “A Room of One’s Own,”[1] has been the founding tenet of contemporary female authorship. In her assertion that “a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction,”…

Does Love Still Exist?

Posted on February 12, 2014 at 1:00pm 5 Comments

St. Valentine may be horrified by the cherubs touting candy, flowers or jewelry. The overemphasis of eros, or romantic love, may have merged out of rampant marketeering. Between Christmas and Easter, after all, is a lot of retail silence. In modern society, with women marrying later and partners…

A Desk of Your Own

Posted on June 1, 2012 at 6:37am 0 Comments

You may or may not know the line made famous by Virginia Woolf while giving an address on the topic of women writers. She said, a century ago words that still hold true for so many writers (male and female) today: 



"All I could do was to offer you an opinion upon one minor point—a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction; and that, as you will see, leaves the great problem of the true nature of woman and the true nature of fiction unsolved."…

Hi Mohanalakshmi!

i sent you a brief msg but was limited by the word limit.  anyway, i loved your interview on thoughts in progress and was interested more in the process of writing from the perspective of an unfamiliar culture.  I think we have similar interests (you may find of interest my article on multicultural mothering on Literary Mama, the link is on my page on She Writes). 

my novel is half written and my struggle is writing from a Hindu perspective as I am muslim (it is so interesting because i write notes and questions to myself just like you did about needing details on this or that). your words about making it a compelling story/characters really helped.  i think you have a fascinating environment  to write in in Qatar.  I am trying to find a network here of asian-indian women authors but it has been challenging.  anyway, i was pleasantly surpised to come across another She-writer on the WOW blog.  your posts on your blog about your struggles with your book (on august 6th) echo my own.  too bad you dont live close enough to meet for coffee :) anyway, would love to hear more about your work and have another female AI author to communicate with! take care,  Farzana
