Hi & Welcome!
I'm Aditi Kaushiva, a freelance writer, blogger, travel junkie and foodie. I started blogging in 2013 as a way to escape the routines of life, and never did I imagine that this would lead me to a path of self discovery.
I started out by sharing snippets of personal life and thoughts, and gradually grew as a writer, finding my mojo in fiction and travel writing.
In 2015, I made no new year resolutions, but chose 'Embrace' as my word of the year, which helped me become more focused towards my goals, and I found the courage to self publish my first Ebook, an anthology titled '26'. Currently I'm working on my first full-length novel. The voices in my head are louder than ever, so I'm hoping they will lead me to the finish line soon!
The year also saw us making the Big Move; shifting to another continent! As husband's job beckoned him to the vibrant city of London, I decided to quit my day job in the banking industry, to be with him. Job search in a whole new environment, sure is daunting, but I'm grateful that this opportunity has brought along with it the possibility to shift gears and head to a career of writing full time.
I am happy to say that I'm taking on more freelance assignments this year. Get in touch with me, if you're interested. (Check out my Writing Portfolio!)
Another one of my passions is Dancing. Although on and off, on and off, it has been an integral part of my life, and I have enjoyed my share of stage performances all through the school years, graduation and post graduation. I've had basic training in the Indian classical dance form, Bharatanatyam, as well as western styles, Jazz and Modern. I often dreamt of opening my own dance school and while the plan for the same is still brewing, I along with a friend, co - founded The Dance Bible in 2014, a first of its kind online portal for dance enthusiasts.
A learning curve, this brush with innovative entrepreneurship has helped me explore and develop skills such as social media marketing, SEO, content management and networking.
I enjoy the little things in life and believe in the power within each one of us to add more meaning and beauty to our lives. Here on my personal blog, I write about anything that fancies my eye and everything that inspires me - life, relationships, inspiring stories, books, coffee and laughter apart from fiction and travel stories.
Now make yourself comfortable and tell me about yourself!
Here, some chocolate cake and coffee to loosen you up!
