Gulsumwrites is here because Gulsum loves to write.
I am Gulsum.
I am an aspiring writer and new on the blogosphere. My friends call me, ‘jolly good fella.’
When I decided to start a blog, “Especially for Women” it seemed that every topic under the sun had been already covered.
I can only write about what I know best and that is not about cooking or fashion or career options.
You will find here stuff that moved or interested me and not just me but also the lovely ladies from my large ensemble of friends, relatives and neighbours. In fact the whole world and then some more!
I am also posting some of the poems that I used to dash off, imagining myself to be the next ‘Nightingale of India.’
The category, “Janes of All Trades” will show case a craft, an art or a hobby of my girl friends, who hide their talent under the proverbial bushel.
“Some things are hard to write about. After something happens to you, you go to write it down, and either you over dramatize it, or underplay it, exaggerate the wrong parts or ignore the important ones. At any rate, you never write it quite the way you want to.” Said Sylvia Plath.
The very words I want to say before starting THIS BLOG.
Read, enjoy and leave your feedbacks. I love to hear from you. There is a form right at the bottom of this page for you girls who want to share their unpublished works or a picture of their handy crafts.
Love you tons.
