Letter to You, Dear Reader!
Dear Reader, How have you been doing? I've been sort of out of touch from the Blogosphere lately - guilty of not visiting blogs, not commenting on your posts, not even clicking one measly like!

So, Camp NaNoWriMo started yesterday and as promised to myself I jumped headlong into it. I've started working on a novel; and even though the plot seemed sketchy, I still took the plunge.

Warm Greetings & New Tidings
From the newest ‘Admin’ of Bloggers World (Me): Do drop in and leave a comment if you want to join in the party. 🙂 🙂
Warm Greetings, Dear Members!
The mantle has been passed on to me and although it is only the responsibility of being the admin of a blogging forum (and not the position of POTUS) I am quite honoured and anxious at this new role. Honoured because this is a great forum and the Admin team before me has done some stupendous work since its inception. Anxious because this is my very first time doing this and I would be learning as I go along.
I take this position quite seriously and would strive to discharge my duties responsibly and as per your expectations. If I falter, please do forgive me after the mandatory rap on the knuckle.
With that out of the way, here’s a more believable end scenario.
I do hope to take the forum to newer heights from here and request your assistance in this endeavour. As we all…

The Most Dangerous Writing App
I don't know how but I landed on this writing app called 'The Most Dangerous Writing App'. I think someone in my writer's group on Facebook had suggested a writer's website, and while browsing through that website I came across an article about this app. Apparently, the app erases everything you've written if you pause … Continue reading The Most Dangerous Writing App
