For a long time, I have wanted to write a book about myself. I have started writing it a couple of times. Every time I picked up the pen (or my online notes) to write, I ended up focusing on a different chapter of my life. I have spent numerous hours thinking about what my autobiography be called. Have come up with a list of names n number of times. But never found something that I’d like to keep after 10 years. (I know I think a lot about future.)
Recently, Apinder asked on Blogger Community what would you title a book you write about yourself. I was clueless for almost a week. But when I began writing this post, it just clicked me. I may end up changing it again when I actually start writing my book and then change it another hundred times while writing it.
Pause to Breathe
Yes. A lesson in the title and more than a hundred stories inside.
Apinder also asked for an outline in 100 words on what the book is going to be about. It’s going to be about me. Ok, bad joke. Let’s try..
Saumya is running away from the demons of her past and is too much worried about her future. She forgets to breathe in the present. In a world where everywhere is running a rat race to win the game of life, she decides to stop, or better say, pause.
Pause to Breathe is the coming of age story of a shy teenager growing up to become a socially awkward adult. It is a journey from fear, anxiety, doubt, hate and darkness to self love, calmness, serenity, confidence and rainbows of an ambivert who ditches the ways of the world.
That’s 99 words.
If you write a book about yourself, what be be its title? Or if there’s a movie based on your life, what would be its name?
