Romantic Short Stories: Life Is Not a Fairy Tale

Hello Friends,

It’s Monday, and I’m here with yet another steaming shot of short love stories. Hope you’ll like it.

Title : Life is Not a Fairy Tale

Life was no less than a fairy tale for Meera up until her wedding. Her dreams shattered as she welcomed the bitter and the most traumatic truth of her life.

She still recalled how adamant she was to get married to Aryan, her friend’s elder brother. Unknown that their marriage was going to be the biggest disaster for her.

She couldn’t see the monster hidden underneath the pretty package. It was so easy for her to fall in love with tall and handsome Aryan, the owner of penetrating green eyes.

It had been three years now. Three years of her transformation from a careless impulsive rich spoilt brat to a diligent and responsible woman.

“Got to go now, Aryan will be home anytime.” Meera rose to her feet and stormed out of the glass door of Ella’s Beauty Salon.

“Wait up. Care to remove the curlers.” Ella shouted as she saw hurried Meera marching towards her car.

Ella was Meera’s friend and a beauty therapist. Meera met Ella when Aryan relocated from Hicksville to Sapphire Heights three years ago.

The relocation was initially for business purposes but later Aryan fell in love with the calm and serene Sapphire Heights, making the place their home.

Meera had no choice but to accept whatever Aryan imposed on her.

Driving back home in her luxurious Limo, Meera received Aryan’s text.

Meet me at sunset point.

“Sunset point, now…why?” Confused, she mumbled under her breath.

“We’re going to Sunset Point, Tim.” She told the driver as she removed the curlers from her hair, barely disturbing the tendrils of her long brown hair.

And the next moment, the black Limo raced up toward the northern end of the town.

Sunset Point was a spot located at a peaking height. Known as lover’s spot, Sunset Point was famous for giving a bird’s eye view of the entire town of Sapphire Heights.

Why he wants to meet me at Sunset Point, when there’s nothing romantic has left between us. The way he has treated me over the past three years, it’s ridiculous to meeting at a lover’s paradise.

Meera could see Aryan’s dominant silhouette in the evening sun. He was standing with his face towards the setting sun.

Meera walked towards him with slow baby steps. There was a soothing calm all around. The chirping birds played a love serenade. She could recall how she fell in love with Aryan.

She met Aryan on her friends’ Naina’s birthday and instantly fell in love with her best friend’s elder brother.

She never knew how dangerous it would be falling for a disciplined army man. Her life turned upside down when she married Aryan after a short courtship of two months.

She never expected Aryan would act like a ringmaster for her wife. She had to be on her toes all the time. Her waking, sleeping, lunch, dinner times were all set by Aryan.

“Hi,” a slow whisper escaped her lips as she neared him.

He turned around, a halo of sunlight kissing his evenly set honey-brown hair.

“Happy birthday, my wife.” He came close and held a blue velvet box to her.

“Birthday? Aw, shucks, I forgot it…”

“But, I remember.” He leaned closer and took out the diamond pendant from the box. “Shine like this always.”

She couldn’t work out how the dictator had transformed into a passionate lover overnight.

“What’s wrong? I mean why are you doing all this.”

“I’m sorry, precious, for being so rude to you all the time. I hope you’ll forgive me.”

“What?” Her eyes narrowed.

“I know it’s overwhelming but I got to tell you this?” He looked in her eyes, sliding the necklace around her sculpted neck.

The touch of his fingers on the nape of her neck gave her goosebumps. She couldn’t resist but to look inside those green striking eyes.

“I wanted you to be a woman you are now. Smart, confident, disciplined, and strong.”

“And how can you say I’m the one…”

“See this…” Aryan handed Meera the offer letter from one of the biggest publishing houses in the States.

“I always wanted you to achieve your dreams. You were good at writing and I wanted you to follow your dreams. Something that’s not possible if you don’t bring a change about yourself.”

“But you never told me that you want me to write….”

“Some things are left unsaid.” Aryan kissed Meera’s long artistic fingers as the sun hid behind the clouds.

How to Get Up Early in the Morning — My Technique, My Way

It’s summer everywhere. I love bright summer mornings when the early morning sun rays filter into my bedroom and wake me up. I love getting up early as it gives me plenty of time to plan and organize things before I work.

To me, getting up early didn’t come naturally. I wasn’t a morning person. In fact, I was a night owl. Curling and rolling up in bed till late in the morning used to be my guilty pleasure a few years ago. I used to postpone my bedtime and hated getting up early. The result was unhealthy lifestyle, boredom, lack of concentration, and frustration. These things took a toll on my working routine, on my writing.

But now, waking early is one of my favorite things in the world because now I know waking up early benefits.

Mornings are soothing. They are quiet as if the world is still sleeping. It’s the perfect time for doing something creative. I start my morning with two minutes of meditation, followed by 10 to 12 rounds of Surya Namaskars. A cup of coffee and I am all set to work.

A few years ago, I was a different person. It was only until I decided I’ll wake up early, plan and organize myself that I could bring change in my lifestyle. I experimented with my sleeping and waking time. I tried to go to bed earlier than usual. I got up 15 minutes earlier than my usual time. For instance, if I used to get up at seven, I  woke up at 6:45. After doing this for 2 to 3 days, I changed my alarm from 6:45 to 6:30. This gradual process helped me in sinking into my new routine. I could get into the habit of getting up early.

This was all about setting the alarm and waking up early. But most of the times even if you want to get up early, you can’t overcome the lethargy, the sleepiness. Same happened with me. I would put the alarm off or put it on snooze, turn side and go back to sleep until I realized it was nothing but my mental state.

I overcame the mental block. Now, I think there’s nothing that stops you from getting up early if you have slept the earlier night.

To win the sleepy state of mind, I tried few techniques I’m sure will help you in your quest of getting up early.

How to Wake Up Early and Not Feel Tired

Feel Excited: When you go to bed in the night, get excited about the things you want to do the next day.  It could be cooking a new dish, writing a new chapter for your novel, or an early morning walk. In the morning, when you get up, think that exciting thing. This will help you get motivated.

Get up and Say It’s My Day: Straightaway jump out of the bed. Yes, as soon as your alarm rings, push yourself out of bed, spread your arms wide, and inhale. Believe me, it works.

Put your alarm away from you: I’ve dealt this with hundreds of time. It happens unless you put your alarm clock or your cell phone across the room. As soon as it rings, get up, stop it, and straightway go to the washroom. Finish the business and afterward splash your face three times with normal plain water. It shouldn’t be too hot or too cold.

There’s Nothing Like Gazing at the Rising Sun with a Cup of Steaming Coffee

Things To Do In the Morning

Praise yourself for getting up early. Use your newfound early morning time the best way possible. Don’t check your e-mails, social media or even news in the morning.

Instead, try the following things:

  • Drink water. You’re dehydrated after sleeping for 8 to 9 hours, so drink a glass full of water.
  • Sit and meditate, not much, but at least 3 minutes. Sit still, relax your muscles, close your eyes. You can chant — “Om, Shanti, Shanti.”
  • Do something creative: Write or Paint or Draw
  • Do breathing or stretching exercises. Or go for a walk. You can even try Yoga postures.
  • Have your first cup of tea or coffee, your choice.

How to sleep earlier

Getting up early doesn’t mean you sacrifice your sleeping time. A human body needs at least 7 to 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. So, inculcate a habit of sleeping early. I know this takes time. Try these tips to sleep early:

  • Warm Milk or Chamomile Tea: It always feels better to drink warm liquids before going to bed. It soothes and relaxes your body. If you are lactose intolerant, you can go for chamomile tea.
  • Listen to soft instrumental relaxing music before bedtime
  • Early dinner. At least two hours before your ideal bedtime
  • No laptops, smartphones, or iPad in bed. Kindle Paperwhite is fine
  • Read in the bed
  • A progressive relaxation: Lay in the bed with your arms and legs wide spread. Start from your toes. Move them slowly, then move upwards to the soles of your feet to your ankle. To your calf muscles, thighs, your stomach, chest. At the end, your neck, face, your head. This relaxes your body and mind. You can sleep better now.

The gradual approach is the key to sleeping and waking up early. It helps you adjust your body to the new routine. This way you’ll never feel tired in the morning and can adjust to your new waking or sleeping time with ease.

I have many friends who think they can better concentrate at nights and are super productive. If mornings are not your thing that’s all right. You can do whatever you want and whatever helps you to achieve your goal. I share what works for me. Hope it helps.

Writing Jobs – Read this Before You Choose Writing as a Career

Writing makes the world go round – If you don’t trust that simply take a look around you. Wherever you look, words are being used to tell a story, portray something, show us the way, give legal protection, furnish you with news, and the list goes on. Notwithstanding when you are watching the news, soap, or a movie, the storyline is made up of words – written or scripted by someone. The world is full of writing jobs.

Writers are in great demand. It’s a profession that will always remain in trend. No matter how modern or technologically advanced we become or where future takes us – words will always be required. If you’ve been considering a career as an author you’ve likely been asking yourself whether you have what it takes to be a successful author.

Becoming an accomplished writer goes more distant than simply having the correct training or formal education. A few people never go to college and have a god’s gift for writing. Others go to college obtain degrees in Journalism or English and think they have covered all the technical aspects of writing during their formal education, but don’t have the skills to compose any story. So, don’t choose writing on the mere basis of your educational qualifications.

We should start with a tough question here. Have you composed anything in your life that was published? Drew attention? Have you ever been involved with article writing? Narrated a story that others loved and engaged in? Here, we aren’t discussing paid gigs. Simply writing all in all. Is it true that you are a decent story teller? Do you do well at collecting facts and sharing that data with others? Pause for a moment to analyze your strengths and weaknesses.

Fiction or Nonfiction – Choose What Interests You, What you want to read

A few people are fabulous fiction authors, while others are incredible journalists. Discover your specialty and pursue it. Try not to attempt to serve anything or everything. To have a passion in your composition that will attract readers, you have to write on things that interest you.

If you’ve been thinking about writing, it’s high time to get your feet wet. Take a plunge and begin. Don’t feel disappointed if you have a hard time getting any customer project in the beginning. There are tons of individuals calling themselves authors from around the world, thus potential customers have a tendency to be careful while hiring, particularly someone with no track record.

One approach to building a brand is to compose articles for one of the many article banks. Article writing is the first step before you begin with freelance writing and offer your services for various writing jobs online. The other approach is starting a blog. Regular blogging will help you gain a reputation over a period of time. Guest blogging is another way of building a portfolio.

Not everybody is good enough to be an expert author, yet who think they can’t be a successful writer, could be, if they just have faith in themselves.

That’s the end of today’s blog post. It’s kind of a blog marathon for me, posting every day. If you like what I write, please do comment.

It’s a great honor to listen from you. If you want to ask questions related to writing, publishing, and getting paid, please put them in the comment section below. I would be more than happy to answer them.

Coffee and Books – My True Friends

Next, you have to realize the significance of becoming an expert. To become an expert, you need the support of other experts. Start submitting your articles to various article banks. There are a number of article sites on the Internet. They will either accept or reject your work. If they reject, they will tell you the reason of rejection. This way you will come to know your weak areas. There are a number of article sites on the Internet. A simple search engine query will yield remarkable results.

To start with don’t continuously compose in only one field. Rather, attempt to explore a diverse range of subjects. This will help you in perceiving where your actual potential lies. Never limit yourself to a particular subject.

How to write better and get published

Do you write? Is your dream to become an accomplished writer? Awesome news! You can do it! Passion works wonders. If you have it, there’s no stopping. If you’re passionate about fiction, write it. If you wish to write facts, go for it. Find your niche, discover your specialty, figure out what you’re good at and give it a try. In case, you’re not sure about your niche, explore what interests you most and write about it.

There is a wide range of authors and not all authors write in different forms and genres. There are fiction authors, there are nonfiction authors. Then, there are historians, memoir authors, biography authors, romance authors and the list goes on and on. Likewise, there are authors who write books and ebooks, there are article writers and journalists who compose for newspapers, magazines, and the Internet.

In case you aren’t sure what interests you most and what you should write about, don’t forget that God has gifted humankind the instincts to explore and understand. Take some time out of your daily schedule and ponder upon things that you like to see on the TV, read in the newspaper, or browse the Internet. Is it fashion, showbiz, politics, or anything else? It could be reading fiction stories, novels or even reading self-help books or DIY guides.

How to start a career in freelance writingNow, you must question, my English is not good enough to compose an article or a book. I agree that a degree in English or journalism lays a solid foundation for building up a writing career, but it’s not generally vital. Like artists and musicians who have god-gifted talents, writers can have a natural born talent too.

Keep in mind the only person who has control over your dreams is you. So don’t trust or listen to others who perhaps tell you that you can’t do it or you don’t have the ability to do it. Listen to your heart, follow your yearnings, and transform your dream into a reality.

Being an expert author has a lot to offer you. What a rewarding career to pursue. You get to always express yourself, your thought, and your ideas. You can reach the masses; you can reach people’s hearts. You can connect with your readers and can flourish a bond. People will remember you by your work. And, all this comes along with a bounty of perks and recognition. There are authors who have booming careers in writing. There are no fixed writing career salaries. Similarly, there’s nothing like fiction writer salary. Authors and composers earn as much as they want, depending on their skills, expertise, experience, and the time they devote to writing.

In case you’re worried about getting your work published, the Internet is an incredible place, to begin with. Once you’re done with an article, submit it to various article banks. It’s free, and it offers unbelievable exposure. If your work is accepted, it will be put on numerous sites across the World Wide Web through the RSS Feeds of these article banks and brings you a hell lot of exposure.

In the event that your article is not up to the mark, the article bank will tell where you’re going wrong. This again helps you in honing your writing skills. Ezinearticles.com is one such high traffic article bank that you can rely on and submit your work.

Try not to be reluctant to submit your articles to your local newspaper (if they have an open column sort of thing) and magazines. You never know – your article could be picked up. This will give you a tremendous amount of exposure and recognition, and you’ll get paid. That’s a win-win situation.

Try to conceive brand new ideas, think out of the box. Utilize the valuable resources accessible to you, follow your instincts, and realize your dream.

Happy Writing!

What is Online Dating

Internet Dating Finding Love Online

The very idea of web dating frightens a few people. While some of the folks look at it as a potential danger, others think that a person who can’t get a date elsewhere would ultimately end up looking for partners online. But, there’s a lot more behind these superficial assumptions and myths that perhaps scare any individual to seek partners online.

Today, since individuals are finding reality: these presumptions are false and can shield you from discovering affection and profound fellowship on the web. As web dating turns out to be phenomenally famous, it’s getting quite difficult for people to maintain a distance from it, regardless whether they trust the concept of finding love online or simply want to explore the truth.

What is Online DatingDiscover the Truth

If you don’t know much about seeking partners online because it has scared you a lot in the past and you didn’t find it trustworthy, the truth is that you’re not the only one on this planet.  However, if you’ve no success finding a dating partner through traditional ways, you can rethink your decision to avoid dating on the web.

Before you confer yourself to any one decision, it is better you assess the assumptions you have about dating on the Internet. If you think that web dating is unsafe, dispassionate, or just for the socially uncouth, examine these thoughts to figure out if they are actually true or mere speculations.

Converse with People

The most ideal approach to discover reality about web dating is to ask individuals who have attempted it. No doubt, you know more than one individual who has set up a profile on a web dating web page and spoke with a few people that way. You perhaps even know somebody who met a dating partner or even a life partner on the web. These are the individuals you’ll need to converse with.

There’s nothing like getting viewpoints of people who are experienced but it’s always good that you do your own research as well. There are some extraordinary articles on the Internet, and books that can be particularly useful. Ensure that the data you collect should come from a balanced outlook, and that it relates to the particular kind of web dating you’re currently looking at.

Take a Bold Decision

Once you have studied and collected all the general and basic information, it’s decision time. Make your own decision and stand firmly on it. At last, it doesn’t make any difference what others think about your choice as far as you are content with it.
