My EBook Journey: When Love takes You Places
I am a compulsive list maker, in my daily life. I love writing listicles, in my blogging life.
For my readers who have been with me for some time, this wouldn’t come as a surprise. Last year I started a weekly listicles feature called Friday Listicles. I talked of how and why I loved listicles. I talked of books, of quotes that inspired me and the learnings in my writing journey. It was a busy time for me, non-blog wise and I was struggling to write regularly.
Sometimes I would wonder how to keep my inspiration strong. At other times, I struggled with being productive, having to juggle various projects. I was also editing my first draft of the previous year’s NaNoWriMo. Editing can be a frustrating and prohibitive experience.
I was sure that there were other writers out there facing the same problems as I did. Sometimes, I would settle down to think deeply about the writing itself, not just the words I was writing but the entire process of coming up with something I wanted to write about, keeping at it and making a good thing out of it. I realised that writing is not just writing the words but also the thinking, the researching, the editing, the rewriting. If I wanted to be good at the entire spectrum, I must acknowledge the stumbling blocks and know how to work around them.
My musings on writing came to the blog in the form of listicles. I was also aware that this would benefit many others who were struggling with some or the other aspect of the writing.
I wanted to put my blog posts in the form of a book.
When I joined Blogchatter this year, my dream seemed to be getting wings. Blogchatter is a community of bloggers on Twitter. It is an amazing place, a wonderful group of dedicated people who give support, provide information and opportunities for bloggers to grow better.
For Blogchatter EBook Carnival, bloggers curated content from their blogs to publish as eBooks. And that is how my own eBook came into being.

I am in the middle of writing a book this summer. My inspiration started about 5 to 6 years ago. I have always been a storyteller, but never thought about writing my stories down. Glad my Fairy Frogs story is being written because it is one of the most creative stories I have.
My inspiration came from a Charlotte Greenway walk. I was on this boardwalk and I look to the left and I saw a bunch of these cattails and for some reason and I don’t know what made me think of this, but the term “Cattail Forest” came to mind and that is the place the Fairy Frogs live. I don’t know how Fairy Frogs and rest of the story developed just from the term “Cattail Forest”. The story is really about Sparkle and Marge’s friendship. Sparkle, a Fairy Frog and the protagonist, ends up befriending Marge, a toad. Sarge, the antagonist is Marge’s Uncle. The toads in a way are enemies of the frogs. The friendship between Sparkle and Marge really is the main story, which eventually will evolve into all the Frogs trying to befriend the toads
This is great…All the best for your future endeavours and yes Blogchatter has been a blessing to many budding authors..
