MPH story writing competition......

yes, i am entering the competition. i just hope that i can finish my story before the dateline.

sorry, for being a lousy blogger and not updating. technically this blog is only for book reviews and thoughts on BOOKS (and authors). i have not finished reading My Sister's Keeper yet (pg 300). i know i am slow. i just had some (meaning quite a lot) of work to be done in school and the monthly tests.....its too lame to explain these things.

so currently i am having this addiction to Preeta Samarasan's style of writing. (yes it is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S). i went gaga over her novel Evening is The Whole Day, which can be bought in all major bookstores. but her short stories are the ones that i feel have a closer-to-home feel. i don't know how she does it but she is amazing. her sentences are crafted to perfection with similes and personifications. OMG. she is so good. you can find links to her published short stories at her website .

seriously if you have time, please read her short fictions (they are not really short but when you read it you will not notice the length of the story, thats the mark of an amazing writer.)
