Welcome to Ame talk :)

“A fire built on a hill will bring interested people to your campfire.” – Shannon L. Alder

Thank you for being the interested one πŸ™‚

I am NJ, ametalk, Neerja, or you can call me anything or nothing at all. I am a woman in my late twenties, now in thirties, πŸ˜€ . I aspire to be a writer, and this blog is a stepping stone in my journey. I am a self-proclaimed bibliophile, for me reading is like breathing and there is nothing that can keep me bounded for long other than a good book πŸ˜‰

Whenever I sit down to write my blog, I do not think that I will produce a work of art. I write because there is some soul talk that keeps going inside me, which forces me to pick up the courage to bind my thoughts into words and express them to a broader audience. My blogs sometimes have an essence of philosophy interpreting my knowledge of the world and people. At times they could be sheer work of rhythmic emotions because emotions are bound to cause some heartfelt ripples in your life. Suddenly I can change the course and do write something about my transformation. You can also find some imaginative pieces too. This blog is my odyssey into the world of words.

As Virginia Wolf has said:

β€œEvery secret of a writer’s soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works.”

Hope you find my work worthy of your time πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  1. I love your blog! You are a wonderful writer! I have another blog for my commonplace book, which is a personal collection of quotes that have inspired me for almost 50 years, and I would really like to include your Virginia Woolf quote on it, if you wouldn’t mind. It’s at http://www.jeneanebehme.wordpress.com if you would like to check it out before giving me permission and I will, of course, mention that I found that great quote on your blog. Thank you for following me and introducing me to your great blog πŸ™‚

      1. Thank you for letting me use your quotes and I will be certain to note that they came from your blog too. Thanks for liking my blogs. It’s great that I’ve had several other bloggers who also have kept collections of quotes and things but never knew that their collections were called commonplace books. But then again for the longest time, neither did I lol! I will be going through your blog more too in the future because it’s great, I really like your posts. πŸ™‚

      1. Yeah it feels great to meet fellow writing engineers πŸ˜‰ and it doesn’t matter whether you work on bits or IC’s πŸ˜› every engineer is somewhat wired in the same manner πŸ˜‰

      2. When you think about writing a piece do you think of it as a problem to solve? I do in a way kind of but more I think of it as expression with problems along the way.

  6. Neerja, thank you for the follow. When I wrote my nonfiction book, I found the experience cathartic. When I write blog posts about my childhood alcoholic family, I find I still healing. But when I write posts about stories in the Bible, I find that I am receiving concrete wisdom for a lifetime.

  11. Hello Neerja. What a lovely blog header and theme you have going here. ‘Soul talk’ is such an apropos name for a blog that features ones art/writings. Ultimately, we express in our art what is in our soul. Our worldview, ourselves.
    Lovely to meet you. I noticed you are from India. Wonderful I’ve been to India twice. In 2000 I was in Calcutta, Darjeeling and Pedong. In 2008 I lived in Jaipur for almost three months while my husband was doing a film course. Where are you from?

      1. True πŸ™‚ authenticity comes when you write from heart πŸ™‚ and that makes you vulnerable but to stop yourself from heart aches ..you need to wear the cover of unpredictability πŸ™‚ And I think that goes well with every human being irrespective of the geographical boundaries. Writing provides one such refuge ..where you can make your own world hiding it from others revealing what you want and how you want πŸ™‚
