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. You don't have to only write poems, you can write anything. You don't have to write only in Engli

Book Review: Unheard Verses by Tiasa Ray

Title: Unheard Verses
Author: Tiasa Ray
Format: Hardback (139 Pages)
Genre: Poetry

'Unheard Verses' by Tiasa Ray is such a beautiful read. I was hooked to the book right when I read the opening verse of the book. Each and every poem is so relatable and very beautifully crafted. If you're an artist or a one-sided lover, this book will win your heart. 

'Unheard Verses' is a quick read but I took my time to savour the essence of each poem. I have too many favourites and I will mention some of them in this review. I also love the font that's used for the title of the poems; it's cute. This book is a treat to the senses. The quality of the book is really good as well.

The language used is simple, beautiful and effective and that's what I loved the most. There are poems about love, loss, loneliness, embracing solitude, and finding peace and comfort in art. These are my favourites from the book: He, Lost, Till Now, Coffee, Thoughts of You, You'll be Remembered, Alone, Mother, Muse, Voices. I found the poem titled 'It's Okay' relatable on a different level.

My favourite lines are from the poem titled 'Pretensions':

"Oh! All the pretensions
will fade away eventually 
when the time plays
its game of inevitability." 
-Tiasa Ray

The cover art and the illustrations are all done by the author herself and I LOVE THEM. The cover, again, is simple and classy. The illustrations are so pretty and cute, I fell in love with them. Here's one of my favourites:

The book ends with an unsent letter and it is the best part of the book. The letter has that melancholic, poetic feel in it. It's truly touching and heartwarming. A letter of a one-sided lover for a man whom she saw only once in her life years ago and fell in love with him such that he became the muse behind her every artwork. A letter that she never sent.

You'll surely love the book like I did. You may buy your copy from here or DM her on Instagram @tiasaray for a signed copy.
