Who am I?
When I started out, I preferred anonymity, and used Prose as my safe space. Just my little corner of the internet to bleed onto the page, no strings attached. I was (and still am) absolutely thrilled and grateful when two of my amateurish poems were featured in the Prose Anthologies Series Vol I and II in 2015.
Fast forward to 2020 and I still write, but occasionally. It would seem I have subconsciously traded writing prose for writing code, and enjoy every minute of it. It allows me to write all day long and watch my “words” (or should I say “commands”) come to life – quite literally!
This right here is my digital time-capsule. I find myself interpreting every piece I’ve written differently whenever I re-read them out of the blue. I figured it’s time I gave my past self (hopefully future self too, quarantine has reignited a tiny creative spark) the due credit she deserves. WriterAtHeart is Shivani Mangaleswaran, and vice versa. Welcome to the inner crevices of my literary mind, you’re in for a bumpy ride.
