“My Writing Process” Blog Tour

I was invited to participate in the “My Writing Process” Blog Tour by Aiswarya, a wonderful blogging friend of mine. The Tour has been making the rounds since at least a year and a half if I am not wrong, and it might be interesting to trace its origin. Each participant is asked to answer four questions and then pass the torch to three more bloggers.

Aiswarya  runs a beautiful blog, My Kitchen Moments, where she shares her passion for ‘ simple, every day, delicious, healthy and authentic ‘ Indian vegetarian cuisine. If you have not yet discovered her blog, you must go ahead and visit it. I am honoured that Aiswarya had invited me to be a part of this exciting tour. As explained by her, This is yet another way of getting to know fellow bloggers, to learn about their writing process and introduce others to fellow bloggers. Basically, this writing process blog tour is a chain journey (some what same, like the blog awards) but here we talk more about our writing process. This is done by answering few questions, publishing the post and inviting / nominating 3 other bloggers to post in the following week. And they in turn invite 3 others who post the following week and the writing process blog tour continues as a chain.

Now on to the questions I am to answer on the blog tour. Here we go:

  1.  What am I working on?

I am currently working on innovating new versions of the regular recipes. As I believe that Beautiful Aromas floating from a kitchen reflects a happy home and the way to a person’s heart is through his or her stomach, I constantly try to conjure up new recipes and present them in an appealing way.

  1. How does my work differ from others of its genre?

Each one of the recipes featured on my blog has been tried out in my Kitchen. I would never post anything which I have not cooked. Though in future, I plan to start a page on restaurant or street food review which of course I will mention.

  1. Why do I write what I do?

Cooking is my passion. I believe it is therapeutic. The satisfaction at the end of a well turned out dish is immense. I believe that a person first eats with the eyes. We reach out first to the food which looks more colourful and appealing to the eye.  So, I like to play with the presentation of food and photograph it. Though I don’t have a professional camera or the skill of photography, I try my best to make my dishes look good on the post. I am learning by the day. I like to document these little adventures of mine in the kitchen.  In other words, I want to encourage the readers to cook their way into the hearts of their loved ones. That is why I like to write my blog. The likes and comments which I receive along with each post make this process very enriching and endearing.

  1. How does my writing process work?

It is simple.  I record the adventure and the fun during the process of my cooking the dish and photographing it.  I am hardly eight months old in the blogosphere and I was pleasantly surprised by the warmth of the Word press community. It didn’t take much time for my nervousness to wane off and get comfortable. I hope to churn out better posts in future and keep the readers entertained. I would love to take this opportunity to thank all my blogger friends old and new for extending a hand of support and encouragement and making every step of this journey memorable.

 

I have in the process discovered some beautiful blogs. I want to pass the torch to three of them to continue with this Writing process tour .
