The Blogpost – my entry to the ‘Get Published’ contest

Some people have diaries, and some people have blogs. They’re both very different things – a diary is personal, and a blog is public. But is it really? Trisha didn’t think so. She maintained a blog, but she was secretive about it. She didn’t tell people she had it, and she used it to chronicle her anger and sorrow. She was safe in the knowledge that nobody really read it – until the day she saw a comment on one of her posts. A comment that took everything that she accepted as a truth of her life – her relationship, her work, her outlook in general and turned everything upside down on its head. A comment that led to her falling hopelessly in love, with someone who she’d always thought of as a ‘fringe friend’, a friend she was friends with because they had friends in common.

Excerpt –

Karthik was crossing his fingers hoping that Trisha wouldn’t know it was he who had posted the comment. He’d always liked her, but didn’t know how to say it, especially because he knew she was committed. But when he saw that post it almost felt like it was crying out to him and he just had to say something. So he did, but now he felt that it was an impulsive gesture and one that could ruin the budding friendship he had with her. So he hoped against hope that she’d never find out!
