In the latest instalment of Sabbatical Chronicles, Swanand Kelkar describes his foray into short story writing
I love writing. Or so I thought. Over the month that I wrote short stories, I realized, though, that I had never written at all. Not in the true sense of the word. I started liking “writing" in middle school. Fortunately, I was born in a family of bibliophiles and had easy access to good books. Blessed with good memory, I could remember new words and even entire sentences. I was made to read editorial columns, underline words I didn’t understand and then look them up in the Oxford English Dictionary. Most newspapers carried “quotable quotes" above the editorial column. I had a small notebook in which I would write these quotes every day.
