I'm fascinated by writing fiction, but I think I have attempted enough to know that I have no special talents in making up stories. I try my hand at mediocre poetry. What I truly want to write is features I suppose, short memoirs, anecdotes, essays and the like. I want to write because I feel I am more expressive with written words than with speech. I want to join this group to explore my writing interests, to gauge my capacity with other writers and to try and write more instead of slacking off.
Yes, writing exercises, for me, is one of the incentives of joining this group. I'm not very sure I want to read out my work, but I would be more comfortable after I actually meet and get to know the group.
No, I don't have any particular project that I'm working on. But I would like this group to inspire me to start some kind of a project.
My early influence was Wodehouse. He is my favorite author but I have still not read as many Jeeves stories as I would have liked. Agatha Christie is another favorite but not particularly an influence. I'm more influenced by blogs, articles, editorials and the like. The ones that articulate their intent clearly in their writings influence me greatly and it helps if they have good comic timing.
Hi all. I'm Pavithra. I'm an engineer. I adore reading stuff, on the internet or on paper. Fiction is what interests me the most. I'm a dog and cat person. I live in Kormangala, work in Successfactors Inc. I try to blog as regularly as I can.
