"Out of the quarrel with others we make rhetoric; out of the quarrel with ourselves we make poetry." - W.B. Yeats. Writing is an altercation between musings and emotions. Words morphing into tactile thoughts. A mental journey -from the real to the surreal where words are phantom fingers that rouse the senses and provide the metaphors. Writing for me invokes those exact feelings. Writing is an extension of me. Saying that it sounds cliched is clicehd too! However, I reckon, if I could have any cardinals it would be writing The inkblots are like the words I'll never speak but still manage to communicate. To hone my skills, I pursued a course in advanced fiction and advanced poetry from Harvard University, USA in 2005. I also did my Masters in Media from Nottingham Trent University, UK, specializing in writing for screen and stage. In addition, I have a BA degree in Mass Communication and Videography, with journalism as my major. I have also worked in the capacity of a language reviewer and editor for PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and as a journalist. My extensive experience in technical communications, editing, proof reading and content writing have inculcated in me a comprehensive understanding of client requirements in the services industry. Additionally, my work with a diversified global clientele has helped me strengthen my core competency area - writing (technical and creative). Writing for me is about finding tangents in abstraction, reveling in the chimera. A "quarrel with the self" that I want to continue forever.
