Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

It's time to say goodbye to yet another year. The end of the year is always a good time for reflection and anticipation.
For me, 2017 will always be a milestone year for two reasons. One of my feature screenplays made it to the semi-finals of the Nicholl Fellowships. Yet another highlight was the making of my short script "7 Lives" into a film. I also had the good fortune to interact and meet with fellow authors and readers at the Noida Lit Fest.

Perhaps the biggest learning for me is this: Every writer's journey is unique. Just like the stories we tell are different, so also are our experiences. While we all  chase "success", it can be interpreted in a myriad ways. Trying to set our own individual goals and go past them is perhaps the whole point of writing. Whether that comes in the form of book sales, write-for-hire projects, or getting your script made into a film, every milestone, every goal counts. So, looking forward to another series of adventures in Writing Land in 2018. 
I hope 2018 will be the best-ever for you too. Have a fun-filled and safe Holiday and don't forget to check out this wonderful short film that my filmmaker friend, Runjiv Kapur, has made on the Joy of Giving. I hope it will inspire you to do your bit when it comes to the "joy of giving". Wish you all a Very Happy New Year!
