How To Passionately Write A Best-Seller

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers


The Headline- "How To Write A Best-Seller" screamed in Bold as I felt privileged to be viewing the much-sought-after list of To-Dos to ensure that my book is a best-seller.

Though I have written many books till now, for long I am still planning to write a book that will be a "best-seller" in which "whether my book's story has a hero or not, my book's story must be the hero*."

My dream book has to be a wholesome package with a super-hit prize-winning mix of drama, fiction, non-fiction, satire, tears, laughter, action, positive-ending... much more than "Entertainment, Entertainment, Entertainment^" to have all the publishers & later the readers vying for it!

“Pack Up!” a voice commanded as I was laughing all the way to the bank when I got jolted back to the real-world realizing that I am yet to write my maiden book... though I have written many books in my head!!!


Dangling on the chain was the Headline- 'a line in my head' - a figment of my imagination as I was day-dreaming as usual while my computer, my internet-connection & my mind had all taken a break from my PhD, & embarked on a passionate Vacation!
