Creative writing

I am passionate about creative writing, which acts as an avenue to talk about issues or events that have made an impact on me. I have a few publications to my credit - a couple of professional articles, musings and short stories.

The stories I write reflect everyday life and my characters are often ordinary people, as I find even mundane life has many interesting facets to it. As much as the colorful image in the tapestry appeals to the eye, it is the plain background  that makes the image stand out. Similarly, I believe that every person has a story to tell and these stories are equally improtant!

I would greatly appreciate your comments and feedback on my posts.

Missing Piece of the Puzzle
