My Book.

I started writing a book back in college, and I’ve always had visions dancing in my head of seeing it out there for people to read, and I am proud to say that it has come true.

The book is about an Indian-American girl named Sonika who always views the glass half-empty, which simply means she is pessimistic. She realizes her wrong, and she does the best she can to view life optimistically – HALF-FULL.

  1. Wow good for you! Sounds awesome! πŸ™‚

  2. Congrats!! You are doing so well for yourself!

  3. This is incredible! I have dreams of publishing my own book but don’t know how to go about it. How did you get your book published? πŸ™‚

  4. I spent a good part of my life from age 14 to 40 writing poetry. By the age of 40 or so, I had about 140 poems. Many friends and family encouraged me. I had 5 peoms put into Anthologies around the world. So, I decided to try and publish. I found a publisher in New York, got the info, I needed. A started my manuscript and took another 6 or so years doing so. I ended up divorced, moved around alot and each time I moved, my things got lost or stolen. Eventually, I realized, I only had 1 more folder left, containing my beloved copies. Well, by now, 1 copy of each poem. Over time, I didn’t bother to copy more and put up. One last move to another house. My boyfriend, through away, my one last, remaining folder, containing 1 copy of each poem. I’ve been heart broken over the years. 25 years of work, gone! I do remember quite a few by heart but, if anyone knows about writing poetry, it comes from whats in your heart at the time your writing it. Re-writing those feelings, is nearly impossible. You really never have the exact same feelings in your heart at any given time. I’ve learned from my mistake though. I NEVER procrastinate any longer!!

    • Thank you for that! I really appreciate that lesson – I try not to procrastinate, but it sometimes gets difficult… πŸ™‚
