The Anticipation Plot
I started up in 2009, and I exited my company in 2020. In a 6 part series called "The Anticipation Plot," I recollect stories and reflect upon my journey.
Hi there. My name is Amrutash.
I started up in 2009, and I exited my company in 2020 - I sold it. In a 6 part series, I recollect stories and reflect upon the last 12 years. What the big stories were, what it felt like, and so on.
Watch out for my buddy Ceil in the chapters.
All 6 blogs together come to 10,000 words - which should take you between 30 to 90 minutes. I hope you enjoy it.
If you like it, please do share it.
A note on my process:
It took me about 6 weeks to write these chapters, at an average of about two hours a day. I re-wrote the piece 4 times based on feedback I received from reviewers.
My review panel was: Monalisa, who pushed for better segues; Sukanya, who kept it real (“why so smug bro”); Naresh, who helped me improve the narrative; Rahul, who marked places which needed clarity and threw in a Jungian reading for fun; Praveen, who critiqued the structure and pushed me to do more with Ceil; and Karthika - my partner - who read every word in every draft - and discussed every paragraph - and without whom my writing abilities drop.
Everyone should record and share their memories. Else, they will clog the mind, and then fade away, unceremoniously.
