About Me and This Blog

ag-21

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.

“I wear a Stetson now. Stetsons are cool!”

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.

And this is the two of us, making masterpieces.

Me and my brother, making masterpieces. I was about six, and he was one and a half.

And this is how we look now, after the ravages of adolescence.

And this is how we look now, after the ravages of adolescence.

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.

Are you ready to take the plunge? Welcome aboard!

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!

Breaking the fourth wall!

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.

Cheers!

  1. πŸ˜€ How cute is your Blog! I’m so happy to see you draw as well and you do it often! Keep it up you’ll only get better and don’t lose your freshness. Love it!

  2. Lol. all my godawful literary endevors from childhood were on an old XP computer and thankfull the hard drive died like seven years ago and off to the dump. Those fututile attempts at writing are lost forever. My mom will still bring them up every blue moon. She thinks they were “cute” and wishes they were still in existance. I’m not sure if she’s biased because she’s my mom or she was blowing smoke. Hopefully the former.

    • I completely understand your predicament! Lucky you: my father keeps my stuff backed up in a hard drive! Parents find the strangest things ‘cute’, LOL.

      Though I’m sure your literary endeavours can’t have been that bad…and after all, practice makes perfect!

      Thanks for visiting my blog and sharing…Cheers!
      Have a great day πŸ™‚
