I don multiple hats - writer, teacher, coach, mother and homemaker. But writing is where my heart lies. So at the beginning of my career I took a copyediting role at a publishing house rather than a well-paid HR executive job at a multinational. Just so I could start on my writing career.
How and why I became a writer
I have been writing poetry since my school days, and in college I started writing fiction. When I started looking for a job after college, I got a copyediting offer from Thomson Press and HR executive offer from Adobe. I chose the former, and here I am, telling you how I became a writer!!
Past work experience and what I’m working on now
I have developed K-12 Computer Science textbooks and tutorials.
My work has appeared in Huffington Post.
I specialize in IT and Education domains, writing blogs, ebooks and whitepapers for B2B SaaS and Software development companies.

Writing advice for those reading
The only thing you need to succeed is write every single day. Even if it's 10 minutes or 200 words a day. Create a routine and stick to it. Even if you write 200 words a day, you would have written 6000 words at the end of the month. Equivalent to 2-3 blog posts or a short ebook. That's also 72000 words at the end of a year. A novella or non-fiction book you can self-publish or start pitching to publishers or literary agents.
