It has been ages since I last posted, I confess. So much has happened over these past (couple?) of years that when I opened this blog today, it was like opening a time capsule. I saw a different me; an amazing person from my past rattling off thoughts courageously without a second thought, experimenting with different types … More Autumn
So it has been a while since I’ve revisited my happy place. Some would say much to their chagrin (my parents), that it is like a second home to me. They are right. (“Welcome, newly initiated.”) On an ideal morning (since the end of exams and the beginning of real life once again), before my … More A Happy Disposition
Thought I’d shed some more light on the book reviews I’m working on/have worked on – now that I have time (Psst…exams are over)! FANTASY: Battles between light and dark, often using magic, but more often using hope. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, Jim Kay (Illustrator), Siobhan Dowd (Conception) Jan 07, 2012 rating 5 … More A Monster Calls Book Review
Hello everyone! It’s been ages, I know. I’m writing this on the 22nd of November 2013 (I promise) and there is so much that I want to say but unfortunately I am racing against time. You see, I have an exam on the 25th of November; one that will end today ( 27th of November). … More Guess Who?
In the darkness of an hour past midnight, a tall figure stumbled out of a bright blue police box. The past events of the day were taking their toll on him. One could see it in his slow, lethargic movements. “Sorry I’m a bit late. There was a slight delay and-” The raggedy man stopped … More 15 minutes
I promised myself that I would not cry today. And as expected all that rubbish on promising myself seemed to go down the plug hole ever since the early hours of dawn. Even so, I told myself that my tears would be of happiness and the sheer emotion of my soft little heart (which would … More Sticks and Stones

Because of your legacy, you alone can cleanse the sins of our family, and the Fire Nation. Born in you along with all … More H is for Home and its Promises
For a certain person who finds today especially important, follow the purple font! For those who don’t (no offense), please proceed with the normal routine: The air conditioner that hovers over my bed currently sounds like a mixture of Darth Vader and a Ring Wraith from the Lord of the Rings. That isn’t the … More I is not for an Important Intermission (NO.)
I, the wildtinker, hereby extend the grace period of the ‘Alphabet a day Challenge’ to the end of August, due to certain ‘obstacles’ (a dramatic way of stating homework and school, etc.) and not to mention the Big Exam that’s being held in school next week. Moreover, as the competition is open to all, writers … More The First Official Proclamation
Whoops! I should have probably mentioned this earlier. I have been rather ambitious lately so… I, thewildtinker have officially challenged myself to write one story per day (it was only mentioned in the title because it sounded catchy but if you insist, you are free to do so.) I repeat, one story with a unique … More An Alphabet A Day Challenge.
