This is my German-writer friend Hans John Jurgen with my son Ronnie when we dined out in Ashwith, New Bombay. Hans manages johntext.de, a website that features quality writing from around the world.

We have been using gmail to post our blogposts to blogger so far. This has been made imperative by several factors, especial among which is a lack of time. As my rich friend Dhansukhbhai Jethalal Shah (who owns a building with a private helipad in Malabar Hill) would say, what to do? We have to worship our stomachs, no? Now that we have a faster and better computer courtesy of good friend (thanks friend!) we are posting this as a test post. If this works, nothing like it, you will be able to read more of our ruminations on subjects of esoteric interest. Till then keeping our fingers crossed.

Keep going when it's not working. It won't start working on its own, you have to make.
Keep going when it's not coming out right. It may be right, you may not be able to see it.
Keep going when you're feeling low. That's when Dylan Thomas did his best work.
Keep going when you're blazing like a comet. That's when Alan Ginsberg did his best work.
Keep going when you're rejected. J K Rowling was rejected too.
Keep writing. But don't be in a hurry to publish. That should happen organically and too many writers are mainlining steroids. Wait. It will happen. Naturally.
