I have not written anything on this blog for what feels like a very long time, I had somehow neglected it without even realizing it. I was busy with Halloween, Diwali, writing my debut Book, my other Blog and Life. I just had to make it my priority today to sit and write something down. So I thought to myself, why not do like an update on what’s going on in my life? Not sure if anyone out there is interested in knowing but I’m hoping atleast one person is reading this.
For those who don’t know what that is, Diwali also known as Deepavali is an Hindu/Indian celebration of light over darkness. It is said that this is the darkest night and we light diyas, candles, fairy lights, some people do fireworks or like back in my hometown Guyana, they spin steel wool. There’s a whole religious reason behind this event but basically you light lights leading into your home to welcome the Hindu Goddness Lakshmi in.
On this day, you would do a no meat fast and usually clean your house and cook the various sweet meats like mettai,sweet rice, peda and also a lot of people cook the popular indian 7 curry. I don’t know about anyone else but we would wake up early and make an offering to the gods and pray.
This year like last year, we had a conundrum of what date Diwali actually was. Some said the 29th some the 30th of October, but we celebrated it on the 30th. Some Hindus usually keep this lightning of the diyas for 5 days.
If you don’t know what Halloween is, then you need to come out of that rock you’re living under. I don’t know if I mentioned this on this blog or my other blog but usually on Halloween I would DIY my decors but this year I DIY my custome as well as my other two sister’s costumes. So I was busy with that. I also DIY a projector with a magnifiyign glass and it worked superb when I tried it in the house. So imagine how annoyed I was when it got dark out and I was about to project Halloween videos to my house and the neighbor in fornt of my house turned on a very bright sensor light in fornt of her house then left.
Urghh!!! Her light from her sensor was so bright that it totally ruin my projection and I didn’t get to use it. Then she came home till after 9 when no one was trick or treating anymore. So I wasn’t going to ask her if she can turn it off, still I am disappointed unto today that I didn’t get to use it.
My Debut Book
You do not know how excited I am that I am past 50% of writing this book. I do not have a release date yet since I am self publishing this book and I am taking my time writing it. I don’t want to rush it and then I get a lot of negative critique on it.
I am very nervous to get my book out there becuase there’s this little voice in my mind telling me that people may not like it and I know I put 100% effort into writing it. I hope that it doesn’t break my mind in writing any other future books which I am hoping to write. But I guess I wouldn’t know till it gets publish.
I did publish my prologue in this blog but if you want to read it you can click on this link, Prologue for Never Forget Youand it should take you to that page.
I guess that’s all for now, thank you for reading my blog and please make sure to visit my book blog, Farzanna’s Book Blog and keep reading this blog posts for updates on my book.
