I have been wracking my brains for quite some time to get my creative juices flowing. I have been writing fiction for nearly eight months but I suddenly found myself unable to conjure up stories anymore. It was at this juncture that Tanmay Jain came up with a fiction collaboration. I immediately decided that this was the ideal medicine to get rid of my sudden inability to write creatively.
The idea is very straight forward. There are seven of us including myself and each one of us comes up with a prompt. And each one of us contributes a fictional story based on each of the prompts. Great idea, isn’t it?
Here are the collaborators and their details:
Tanmay Jain (also the organizer)
Tanmay Jain is a blogger, book reviewer, writer and bibliophile from Jaipur, Rajasthan. He has been reading books since he was a child and hasn’t stopped since. He started his first blog in 2016 and since that, after many unsuccessful attempts at managing a successful blog, he landed on his current and most successful blog, Scion of Society. Tanmay dabbles mostly in fiction writing but sometimes wanders off to poetry, book reviewing and writing tips. He is an editor for his school magazine, X-rays. He’s a teenage writer, aspiring author, and a budding blogger. Facebook Twitter
