Writing A Book? Read Twinkle Khanna’s Tips For You First!

Now, I know, Twinkle Khanna is everyone’s favorite. And after her debut book, Mrs. Funnybones, she became India’s highest-selling female writer in 2015.

Her new book, The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad, consists of four stories. Well, now that she’s a well-recognized author, she shared a few writing tips with Vogue that’ll help you to get started on that book you’ve been desperate to write:

  1. Read everything you can get your hands on: Programme your mind to read all the time and everywhere—even in the bathroom, skim through the lines printed on the back of shampoo bottles and sanitary napkin packets.
  1. Eat carbohydrates: All these protein diets may help you twirl prettily in a size-2 dress but if you want your mind to take a few marvelous leaps then you have to give it the food it needs.
  1. Live in the world of probabilities: Examine things with a magnifying glass made up only of what-ifs.
  1. Find a tolerant family: These kind folk must accept the fact that you may sit at your desk for hours at a time while spouting vague excuses like ‘I will come out later, it’s too hot’ or ‘Don’t come close, there are insects on my desk!’
  1. Walk, run, cycle: When you live inside your head for such long periods of time, you have to open the windows, air it out a bit, let sunlight stream into all the dark and dusty corners of your mind.
  1. Relish being an oddball: Well-behaved, well-adjusted people are hopeless storytellers and, honestly, terribly boring.
