A book that kills creative block.
And also a giveaway + other updates.
I compiled a bunch of quotes, poems and other motivational and useful stuff on poetry, writing, art and other creative pursuits, into a book, to help me during a block. What I found was that despite the books strange art style and some quotes having literally zero meaning , still the book cured almost every type of block I had.
So I decided to convert the quotes into a pdf and put it out for others. If you are interested in actually holding the book, It will soon be on a Amazon as Chocolate for Creativity(Arjun Agarwal), It is priced at USD 3.99 which was the lowest KDP offered(I am having issues with the margins and bleed, if someone wants to help: email@example.com) . However, If you don't mind reading digitally, here is the pdf.
I hope you find it as useful as I did.
THE FRONTLINERS GIVEAWAY
I am giving away my first book in the fantasy genre.
The people who have been here, You know what I am talking about.
Periodically throughout Lumise's history the byzantine factions of the city — or some significant subset thereof — will become collectively fixated upon some objective. Thus will begin a Great Game. Sometimes the goal of the Great Game is to acquire something of arcane importance, sometimes it would be a place of power and other times, The goal is very much a secret known to a few. This is very much the case with the current Great Game. At first, it was merely known that Lord Octvener had hidden something big in Lumise before his left for the Ten Pen Peaks. But it was long before the players realized it was a vault. When the vast scope of his embezzlement — a half a billion gold! — came to light, however, its pursuit became even more frenzied.
But few knew of or were interested in the proceedings of this grand game. Six such destinies were going to be intertangled at a quiet morning in a crowded bar, sprawling and epic which was and will never be known again.

UPDATE ON THE MYTH OF KRISODORIS

It is a quite evening and air is filled with cherry. In a sleepy village of St Mary Mead where every house was filled with people drinking sugary tea talking, reading or simply looking at the beautiful pink sky, in a house in the slight outskirts lived Inspector Anderson. He pulled the cigar out of his mouth and threw it in side of his paper basket, it burst into flame.
"What is wrong with this case! I come for a vacation and crime finds me." He shouted in rage, throwing his pen on the floor. "Only if I could consult Sherlock." he sorrowfully said to himself. He then added(in his best impression of Sherlock), "But you know what he would say, 'Oh! Anderson, It must be so funny in the little brains of yours. How can you not understand such a simple case."
Then he thought, "But he is not the only detective in the world. The world is full of smart men and women, What if I consult some others?" He then picked up his pen and pulled out some postcards and started writing some letters.
See how this turns out in a collaborative storytelling process which will create and solve mind boggling cases with Detectives you may be slightly familiar with.
This one is in development but who cares? So here is the blurb
“Those who don’t know history, are destined to repeat it.” - Edmund Bruke
“History is a pack of lies about events that never happened told by people who weren’t there” - George Santayana
The Galactic Council has prospered for two thousand years. Nobody suspects that the council has made certain errors, which has caused its core to turn rotten. That was until Histroengineer Shubham Agitos used his new program to foresee its terrible fate.
Exiled to the desolate planet Dorars, Shubham establishes a super computer, Clio-Amanda system which holds the key to changing the fate of the galaxy.
Now the responsibility falls onto a group of bright minds to make sure that the fall and rise of the Galactic Council goes according to plan. And every mistake, proves the same universal fact: History Repeats Itself.
This one was an incomplete fan fiction written by my friend and me. We however, soon realized that it had potential, as a original series. Well as [insert famous TERF cum bestselling author here] likes to slam cases onto anything that even resembles her work by a pm(picometer, also one trillionth of a meter, to put in perspective: One sand particle is 125000000 picometers long) therefore, I am planning to change the names of places and copyrighted characters before restarting my work on it. Here is the original blurb.
A new thrilling adventure for Potterheads in J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World! Edith Shirley gets accepted into the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. As the year continues and the seasons change with time, she finds her friends acting very strangely. She finds out more about the history of the Shirley family and who they were involved with. Start reading Edith's diary for a mysterious adventure in Hogwarts!!
Also the original chapters are on Wattpad, https://www.wattpad.com/story/224140319-hogwarts-diaries
The Diary of a Middle School Girl
This is another project which is in development, The idea is to create a book written by a bunch of high school kids, the catch: No one knows which chapter was written by whom. They all will share their diary entry for a day, and the compiler will choose the best fitting one and insert it. At the end of 150 entries, We have a book.
