About

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.

About Me

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’.

    Aditya,
    You’ve bloody inspired me. To get off my behind,or er continue sitting on it but kickstarting my brain. Going to try to make myself get back to this very same plan–what you’re doing that have seen several beginnings but no keeping up. Thanks. Great luck on writing everyday. And may we all write well and get published.:)
