Manashantii writes because writing is physically relaxing, psychologically carthartic, spiritually nourishing and it is also her creative outlet, writing helps her to manage stress and be organised, writing helps her to gather her thoughts and make plans and reflect. Writing helps her to record her thoughts, her memories and communicate with the world. Manashantii’s writings are unedited stream of consciousness writing and usually first draft only, never concerned about grammar or punctuation. She writes this way because she likes to illustrate with words, she writes sensory photographs of her consciousness, she does this because she likes the reader to sense her original thoughts, feelings and ideas, she values this type of writing process. She enjoys studying hard and writing with passion. Writing is a tool that helps her to develop her knowledge.
