She tries to befriend some local village kids. But they find her incompetent in their rural antics. They nickname her Messy as most of the time she messes up their plan. Can Misry really be a part of the gang?
Set in the early eighties, join Misry in the adventures of her life.
1. When I am not writing, my mind constantly explores the plots or I am lost in the facebook. Both the situation is dangerous for my family as I am unable to attend to their queries. Sometimes my hubby gets annoyed and shouts at me.
2. I have a cat, Bengal Tiger breed, named Chikki. She is very disciplined when it comes to her meal time. If I am away from my computer then she is like an alarm clock reminding me every second that her plate needs my attention. However, if I am at my computer then she supports me for few more minutes by occupying my bookshelf to take a micro nap.
3. I love to travel and I am very good at visualizing things too. So if any article or plot is based on any travel destination or remote location with minimal inhabitation it will easily attract my attention. Thrillers, horrors, romance any book with good setting I can finish in one sitting straight.
4. Writing on paper is fun and very engrossing. Although I draft my first writing on my computer however, it is always pen and paper first that grabs my attention for drafting the plot outline first. And sometimes I write out of pressure, more like using the loo. So when I am ready to vomit my first outline I have to rush for my pen and paper leaving everything behind. (It is an urgency you see).
5. I always have the habit of narrating my first draft to my family. Either B or D will hear it first or in some cases both. After ending I look at their faces for reaction. If they like it they will ask for more and if not they will simply say OKAY.
