About this Blog

Hello and welcome to Stories and more – my secret hideout in this alternate universe. Of late, I seem to have developed an irresistible desire to jabber – I guess a sure shot sign that I am aging. Anyway, since it is so difficult to get hold of an attentive ear, blogging is my attempt to catch your eye, perhaps touch your heart, find a friend and generally have a blast without moving from my seat.

Certainly a win-win situation but only if you are game.

So how about it people – do you have some time to spare? If so please, be my guest and take a stroll through knotty verbose overgrown paths of the blog which have been unraveled in this post for easy navigation. To cut a long story short, apart from short stories (including flash fiction) and Moonshine, the rambling yarn, there are other posts on a range of topics (listed below) – the latest to be added being the A to Z challenge Posts and Clicks and Pics.

Two more new sections have been added – Story Club, which discusses short stories where readers are encouraged to participate and From DM’s Desk which is only likely to make sense if you are an IPKKND fan and a reader of Silver Streaks πŸ˜€

Do check them out – who knows you may find something to suit your taste? Fingers-crossed!

Hope you have fun – I am off to chomp at my (crossed) fingernails.

Thanks for dropping by and especially for leaving me a note πŸ™‚

Optimistically yours,

  1. This is such a frank and to the point ‘About this blog’ and, yet, there is an underlying passion about the work you will to undertake/have undertaken, which from the surface one feels, is on the pretext of the blog and at the heart is your love for writing. Feels to me. I like the chirpy voice of this page. Great. This is a rich blog for me, a beginner in the field of reading and writing. Looking forward to learning. Cheers.

      1. Please don’t call this certification. I am incapable and insignificant to do so. Though I would say that, it is what I felt. Glad that it gladdens you.:)

  2. Hi,
    Congratulations on being Danny Ray’s featured blogger. I was his featured blogger too!
    Maybe you can check out my blog if you need a blogging tip or two. That’s what I write about. I brought you the link to my About page, so you can read more about my blog.
    I know people here. I guess it’s a small blogging world.

  4. Hi, you know a friend of mine, Janice Wald, and I think another, Yvette Prior. Congratulations on your award. I haven’t met anyone with time to spare, but you have some fun things here to read, so maybe we just make time, yes? I blog mostly about blogging and writing with some photography thrown.
