736 days of Blogging, and still counting!

Facepalm I recently realized that my blog's 2nd year anniversary went unnoticed. 736, that's indeed a great number, isn't it? I'm astonished at how much I have achieved so far in my writing journey. Let me walk you through the timeline of my blog since its inception highlighting the initial achievements.

March 25, 2013 
I posted the first post in my blog. It was a short story titled 'Fury' (Click here to read the story). 

For the next three months I was posting nothing but short stories. In the meanwhile, I was exposed to blogging platforms like Indiblogger and BlogAdda, and my blog began to gain readers from those blogger networks.

On this day, I posted a short story titled 'Misfortune' (Click here to read the story), which literally changed my perception of 'me' as a writer. I was astonished to see my work getting published in Storizen (e-magazine) - published in the month of September 2013. Thanks to my blogger friend Meera who introduced me to this e-magazine.

Inception of Enigma. The first episode of the blockbuster thriller story 'Enigma' was published in 'A Rat's Nibble'.

After 2014, I started to blog at a snail pace as I got carried away with my personal stuffs. I couldn't write much as I'm experiencing intense writer's block for past couple of days. All I could say is I will continue this never-ending journey of writing till the last breathe of my life.
