Buy The Book of Infinite Writing Prompts

Many years back, someone inspired me to write poems and I never looked back. Now when people tell me that my words inspired them to start writing, I feel nothing but purely blessed. Even if you don't write yet, anyone—I repeat anyone—can be a writer. No matter what language you write in, if you have got something to tell and you can ink it well, you are a writer. When I started my writing journey, writing prompts were the best tool I had to polish my skills. I still write using prompts and I love them. So, I thought why not make prompts of my own and share them with you all. If this book turns out to be useful for, at least, one of you, my efforts put into the book will be paid off. (A simpler version of the book is now also available on Kindle worldwide. Check the link at the end of this page) Know that you don't have to be a writer to write but writing makes you a writer.

That Day Before Sunrise

That day before sunrise,
Expecting another dark and gloomy night,
I sat on my window sill,
Gazing at the sky star-filled.
For once in many months,
The night didn't feel so lonely,
The moon shone brightly,
As if to say, "everything will be fine, young lady."
Was I under its charm,
Or was it an alarm,
To wake up and
Put my sorrows to an end?
I looked at the stars,
They twinkled and jingled
In sync with the beats of my heart,
Lighting up my soul with the rays of hope.
And that day before sunrise,
That night which I had expected to be dark,
Taught me it was time to move on,
That night preceded my life's actual sunrise.
