In 2009, I devoted more time for my other interests. In writing, the long-awaited Chicken Soup for the Indian Teenage Soul was published. The anthology has one of my stories - "Grade's Don't Define You." I also sold another personal story to Chicken Soup for the Indian Woman's Soul. I worked on multiple corporate and web content writing projects apart from my regular writing assignments. And more than before, I rejected several of the offered assignments either because they wanted to work for very low rates or the topics weren't of interest to me.
For now, I am trying to win assignments from a couple of national publications. And hope I can find time to fulfill my much-cherished dream of becoming an ebook author.
