If you have ever written on a schedule, you must be familiar with writer’s block. It means you may have lost inspiration, the plot, or your mind all together; you may have disconnected from your story or subject; you may be stuck at the editing stage; you are unable to fill in the odd gaps; you are on the verge of a breakdown; or any other symptom reason hindering you from writing.

Book Review - Yes, My Accent Is Real by Kunal Nayyar

Kunal is a 34-year-old British Indian actor and writer; he was born in London, England, grew up in New Delhi, India, went to Portland, USA to pursue higher studies in Finance, and now resides in Los Angeles, USA with his wife. Even though he chose to study finance, acting was his calling; and as soon as he realized that he worked hard on building it professionally, and eventually served it well.
