Hi! My name is Amrita Goswami. Apart from enjoying the usual staple hobbies of reading, listening to music, sleeping, eating, existing etc. I love science fiction and happy endings in all media (especially real life). I grew up watching Star Wars, reading Harry Potter and listening to the Beatles.
And like almost every book-lover, I’ve always wanted to write. Since childhood, I’ve been constantly engaged in writing terrible verse and even worse novels with no perceptible beginnings or ends. I now cringe whenever my grinning parents unearth my earlier literary endeavors from their stash, along with those embarrassing baby photos.
From stories about mace-wielding anime characters, to anecdotes about candy witches inspired by Hansel and Gretel, I’ve penned down every errant thought that caught my fancy. This blog is a collection of rambling thoughts and musings that I’ve managed to salvage over the years. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it.
I originally intended this blog to be a ‘creative writing blog’. But then it mutated into a diverse collection of posts, and before I knew it, I started including my artwork (primarily made in Photoshop). I’m still learning how to harness the godly editing prowess of Photoshop!
A last note on the (possibly confusing) categories on my blog:-
Quite a bit of what I write is fiction. ‘Short stories‘ and ‘Vignettes‘ contain fictional pieces (which are all autobiographical or metaphorical in varying degrees nonetheless).
‘Verse Aspiring to be Poetry‘ is, as the name suggests, fragmented prose that I like to call poetry.
‘Personal Experiences‘ are anecdotes of actual real-life incidents (non-fiction).
And lastly, ‘Musings in Pixels‘ is the odd one out- a category for my digital art.
You can also follow the Mobius Strip on Facebook. I try to post every week.
See you around! 🙂
