Updates and Comebacks

Contrary to what you might think, I’m not too proud of my long absences on the blogosphere. The fact that these absences coincide with my occasional writing hiatuses is probably no coincidence. Nevertheless I have resolved to start blogging more regularly again because, well, I miss it.

Anyhoo, I’ll start with updating you on what’s going on- in my life and cyber-wise. Firstly I have a bit of good news. My application to study for that teachers’ qualification I told you guys about, has been accepted. I was feeling a bit apprehensive before as I heard a few horror stories of people not being accepted but anyways…WOOHOO!

The bad news is that my novel has come to a standstill, again (although, when I get time or when I get that writing itch, I work on a subplot or flesh out a few characters). But remember that short story collection I finished a long, long time ago? Well I plan on hiring some beta-readers really soon to check them out for me just to see if they’re actually worth anything (by the way, if you would like to be a beta-reader for yours truly, let me know).

Thirdly, my contribution to the Artipeeps website- my Classic Friday pieces, has sadly come to an end. Artipeeps is evolving and moving in a new direction hence the changes. I want to just personally thank Nicky for allowing me the opportunity to write for the site and to wish her and Artipeeps all the best for the future. 

On the bright side: since Classic Friday is no longer, my HML posts will be making a comeback. Weeeeeee!!! Expect the first HML article (in a very, very long time!) in early October.

Speaking of comebacks, I’ve returned to Twitterville you guys, so follow me if you haven’t already.


That’s it for now. So, (in my best Joey Tribianni voice), how you’re doin’?

NM 🙂

    One; Congrats on the acceptance.
    Two; The beauty of a novel is that it does not have to be rushed, much like making love, it is best when time is taken over the finer details, rushing can lead to disappointment. Three; I’d love to beta read any of your work (something I very rarely do, but because it’s you…

      Hey thanks for commenting! 🙂 Yes, you’re right, it doesn’t have to be rushed but I do feel guilty most of the time for neglecting it. It’s like a baby. MY baby 🙂
      Oh wow, thank you I’m honoured for your offer to help, although I would never want to place an obligation on anybody, but if you’re really keen I will go through my collection and send you a couple of stories. Good thing is that they’re short, not like novels so it won’t take up most of your time… 😀

      • R.D. TEUN says:

        I’d like to see some of your work, I’ll d.m. you my Email via Twitter once your ready. As for neglect, I am guilty of the same at times, but reality has this nasty habit of imposing on that fictional life I love so much, still, it’s nice to know we can always return and everything being as we left it.

      • Nisha says:

        I have your email, so I’ll definitely be in touch in the next few weeks. Oh yeah, real life, it can be such a bother sometimes… 😀

    Congratulations! You will be a dynamite educator… teacher, novelist. What’s not to like? I look forward to your posts.

  3. ArtiPeep says:

    Nisha, It was a real pleasure to have you and your writing on ArtiPeeps! And I look forward to working with you in other collaborative ways in the future. Your path towards teaching seems to be going from strength to strength. Great!! All the very best to you. Nicky

    • Nisha says:

      I look forward to working with you again too Nicky. You have a great thing going with Artipeeps, and with the passion and vision you have, it’s going to be awesome! And thank you for all your support! 🙂

    Nisha’s back, back, back. Back again, Nisha’s back, back, back, tell a friend! LOL. Sorry I couldn’t resist. 😛 A massive congrats on the teaching front! I can so picture you in that career path, I’m sure you will be great at it. Your return to twitter is like Christmas come early to me, definitely missed your presence on there and I’m very excited to hear you may be blogging more again. 😀

    It might be a good thing that you’ve taken a break from writing, it may give you a fresh pair of eyes when you return. I would be happy to beta read your work, bearing in mind I have no grammar knowledge or qualifications of use whatsoever, but if I can be of help in any way let me know!

    • Nisha says:

      Ha ha! I found myself rapping and singing to your first line there 😀
      Awww, thank you, I missed you guys too, which is why I iz back, bay-bay!!!!

      And thank you so much for your offer Becks, I know you’re busy at the moment, but I’ll email you a few stories in the coming months. And there’s no hurry, you can take as much time as you want. *smoochies*

      • beckyday6 says:

        Ha! Now I have a picture of you in my head trying to be all gangsta and making weird arm movements! 😛

        Awesome, just let me know. 🙂 Good luck my friend!
