Here’s How ‘Terribly Tiny Tales’ Taught Us To ‘K-i-s-s’.

Disclaimer: Even before you let your demons run wild, let me assure you, it is not ‘that’ type of article. There is juicy information which I will reveal to you by the end of this blog and trust me; it will leave you pleasantly surprised.

It’s been only a week since Jaipur Literature Fest 2017 ended and I still can’t believe how hopelessly hung-over I am; on literature, of course. For whole five days, me and my crew were literally breathing the venue in and out.

The moment I checked the schedule for 2017, I had already imagined myself, sitting amongst the crowd on a Saturday morning, and hearing the guys who literally gave me my morning dose of inspiration.

Terribly Tiny Tales: Anuj Gosalia and Chintan Ruparel

For those who have been living under a rock or are not online reading enthusiasts ( it could be either of the two), TTT curates tiny tales, some of which leave you spellbound, some leave you longing for more. They do make an impact, which is for sure.

The Session and Realisations

This is for all those budding writers who couldn’t make it to the venue and have never attended a TTT workshop; between the ‘awww’ and ‘ohhhh’, I managed to grab a few tips on how to write tiny and still make it big. I hope these tips, exclusively from the founders of TTT, will benefit you for the better.

(Catch hold of your diary and pen, though in TTT style I have tried to keep it tiny)

  • Be clear with your thoughts and content first, creative with the construct later.
  • Remember you deal with a limited attention span. Make the most of it.
  • Your first draft is the worst draft. Discard it.
  • Chuck ‘good’ work. Good is the enemy of great.
  • Surprise yourself with your work.
  • Don’t confuse laziness with your style of writing.

 And this is how, we were taught to k-i-s-s: Keeping it Simple, Silly!
