Daily fiction (weekends off) written by Aditya Bidikar.
This is a writing exercise. Every day, usually before I do any other work just before I go to sleep, I sit and write a little story. None of these are premeditated, none of these are worked on (beyond fixing typos and clarity issues) after the day they are written. I call these my 200-word stories, but that’s not a rule – upcoming stories range from 100 words to 500. These stories give me an opportunity not only to warm up my brain (which usually takes a long time to get properly started up) every day, but also to do little experiments, and, essentially, to download excess ideas from my brain onto the screen.
I will be publishing these stories on this blog five days a week. This is to give myself just a little buffer, in case there are days on which I can’t write, or if there are stories which are simply unpublishable.
So, five days a week, every week, there will be a little story here for you to read.

I live and work in Kolkata, India. I have a day job as a translator, and, as of now, I write stuff on the internet.
I recently had my first professional fiction publication, a story called ‘Woodwork’.
