About Me

Hello. Welcome to the most edited page ever. About me. Bio. Profile – call it whatever you like, I hate writing it. I think my entire writing career is going to be about learning how to write a good bio.

But for now let’s settle with this – I am Nikita.

Niki for some and Zank/Zanku/Zankar for others.

I hold a master’s degree in Geology but writing was my true calling. I realised it after my post graduation when I was faced with the existential dread of what next. I realised I was a better day-dreamer and storyteller than I was a rock explorer. As a kid, I enjoyed writing about my day in my diary, or long letters to friends and family on birthdays and anniversaries. Many more instances of scribbling ideas, penning down thoughts and typing away stories later, I decided I wanted to do it full time.

So I took up writing professionally and worked for three years as a Content Writer in Advertising, Venture Capital, Renewable Energy, E-commerce and Retail. It was a fun ride! But it left me creatively unsatisfied. I decided to give myself a year and pursue MA in Creative Writing. It is ongoing currently. I am loving it here at Sheffield Hallam University.

On this blog, I write weekly posts about what I’ve been up to or books that have caught my interest. I also post fiction pieces and some amateur poetry. I love to travel, the geologist in me doesn’t rest unless I step out in the wild every month. I try to note down my travel experiences too.

And that’s me 🙂

Welcome again to my blog, hope you feel at home and have a good time reading my thoughts.

You can connect with me here to give feedback, share advice or send me a cool piece you’ve come across. I’d love to get to know you 🙂
