A Delhiite tasting the Bombay sea breeze!

I'm a Media Student and yes I love reading and writing. And of course- I love Movellas. This is where it all started :)

I am not sure whether I will be active here or whether I'll post my work but you can drop a message here to start a conversation, I love meeting new people. Also, I can give you some CC on your work :)

You can connect with me on Instagram: mercury_chap_poetry

    PaintA short write-up I wrote for my creative writing class. I wrote something after a long time (a very long time), so it's pretty rough. I need to restart...


    I wrote something after a long time and it's serious for me since I hadn't written for a long time. Maybe it's writer's block or just general stress in life but I wasn't able to write no matter how much I tried. My creative writing class helped me overcome this to a small degree right now and I feel what I wrote isn't as good as my past work but good enough for starters. BUT I really need some constructive criticism or just a general opinion since I have the wish to improve again.

    Hello everyone, I still exist :)

    This Mumble was not to let you all know whether I exist or not or whether I exist in your memory. This is just a result of me going back to my old times and stalking myself on all social media platforms. Because it's true- we all need to look back from time to time. Our history is what created us. And Movellas is a big part of who I am today. So I'm here, again after a year or more than year or two years...(?? not sure) No I am not a big writer as I thought i'll be when I joined this place, and yes, I am not the same vibrant person who thought she could conquer the world and was playing the main part in the movie of life. I have changed a lot.

    Last year was a year of changes, I joined college, came to live in a new city, met new strangers who eventually turned out to be family, broke every rule on my way, and tried my best not to let the world's negativity get me. But, oh, it does get me from time to time. Still I fight myself with all my energy to stay. It's difficult at times. How I want to be the same person in 2014... I had dreams, I had hopes, I had aspirations, I had ambitions and most importantly, I was brave. But anyone can be brave when they are blind to the truth. I wish my mental state could go back as it was when I was 14. It's not been long since then, but I have worn out... Still, somehow I am alive... And I just want to say Hi again. :)

    I hope all of you are having a good time in this world.

    I am trying to rewrite an old story which doesn't have a definite plan and even now I am struggling to find a way. I think I connect to this character well and I do not want to give up on it and leave it incomplete. But I feel I am not giving justice to the story. There is no definite structure and I don't really know which direction I should take it. I don't even know how it should end. It's quite open-ended and that annoys me so much. It is kind of frustrating. I can't think how to develop this story further, and I do not want to leave it. I can't feel that flow which comes while writing or thinking up an idea while writing the story. I got it in the morning but later it just disappeared. I don't even know how to plan this story. :/

    Sometimes when I get stuck, the best thing I can do is do something else. Edit an old work, or even just read an old work. Write a little flash fiction from a prompt. I find once you've got yourself in the flow, you can go back to your current project it with fresh eyes :)

    I know how you feel, I have had this problem many times before. But as Molly suggested I think perhaps writing something else first, however random, would help with getting the flow back. I often think when I write or even read some different pieces of my writing I get more inspired or in the mindset to write as I often think of new things which I could incorporate either in the story I'm reading or another.
    Hopefully you'll be able to write again soon on your story. Good luck :)

    My exams just got over and school is over, which is an amazing feeling really. I really want to get back at writing again, haven't written a story for more than a year and I have lost a lot of writing skill and motivation. Also, my mental and emotional state is not good at the moment, let's just say life isn't so smooth. I will need a lot of motivation from you guys, I hope you all will help me get back on track, plus I'll be able to catch up with you guys!

    (Note to Movellas- The first thing I see on visiting Movellas is 207 notifications, in which I think more than 100 are from spam accounts and trust me, that isn't a pleasant welcome at all. Movellas, you really need to moderate the site better. )

    Welcome back :)
    I'm sure you can get back on the writing track, it might take a little time but new inspiration can often come out of nowhere at anytime.
