A real short story - IndiBlogger & Harper Collins Initiative.

Love is something that has intrigued the masses since time immemorial. I happened to stumble upon this article where there is  hunt for a 'real' love story by IndiBlogger in collaboration with Harper Collins. I thought to myself about how love, heartache and heartbreak marks the theme of most my writing lately and thought maybe this is what I'd been looking for.

The idea of my story is simple really. A summer time romance with a stranger. How two people discover in one night that they are just 'two lost souls, swimming in a fish bowl, year after year' (Quote: Pink Floyd). It's entwined with not just one but two love triangles, what follows and how it all goes down. The story will likely cover details of a present day relationship and it's quirks. Of things and emotions that drive us today. It'll reek of bonds formed over music, bourbon and an unexplained chemistry. And my version of love, or what I think love is anyway.

I just hope to be able to do this story justice for it's very close to my heart. And hopefully this will mark the end of my lovesick posts and I can finally set the quill down on us. I always thought I had a story to tell and where better to do it than here.

  2. No, you should not be distracted, since this story would mark the end of "my lovesick posts and I can finally set the quill down on US", and finally the One Ring will be destroyed, and this blog can be sunny again. So only female cheerleaders. Write, woman, write! :D

    1. Ah the reference to the One Ring. Touche.
      And it's going to be kind of painful to live through all those moments again hence the apprehension.

    2. As Chandler Bing says, "I'm not really good with the advice, but may I interest you in a sarcastic comment?"
      However,I think I've been sarcastic enough with you, so I will just go back to being Gandalf: "I will not say do not weep, for not all tears are an evil." :-) But do it, and you will be free, once and for all. Go on :-)
