Excerpt from Catastrophic Collisions

PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition 2019


    Lying on the beige carpet, broken and shattered and embedded into the fibers of the material, were the pieces of the glass heart. Its fragments glinted in the summer sunlight, glittering with a hidden secret. For three days, Nicole had stared at the broken pieces, her face contorted into a mask of confusion and pain as memories came back to her in flashes.

Don't Forget Me

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2019

I was not
Different
Because I was Indian
Because I was a girl
Because I was smart

I was not

Food without Flavor

PROMPT: Food Writing Competition 2019

The women in traditional Indian families could fight for their own rights. To go to work, or to stay at home....
