I write. I sip chai. I write.
Sometimes I touch my toes.
Sometimes I blow bubbles.
Sometimes I travel to Hampstead Heath in my mind.
I laugh, I think, I dream.
Sometimes I hum with Jamie Cullum
But mostly I like to write.
It keeps me alive.
Joan Pinto is a writer. For the rush, and for the good sleep it gives her. And yes, to pay the bills.
Her writing credits (non-fiction) include the Snapshot column of the Times of India (India’s largest circulating English newspaper), Femina, the travel supplement of the Economic Times (India), India Today Travel Plus, Free n Easy (the Executive Club magazine for British Airways), Society Interiors and absolutewrite.com evesindia.com, and bootsnall.com. And of course, The Christian Science Monitor, Boston.
She’s been an engineer, copywriter, interior designer. Now she writes non-fiction, short fiction, haiku, to–do lists, and advertising work that excites her.
But at the end of it all, she writes.
