About Me

Welcome to Image to Ink!

I’m Eesha, the voice behind everything you will come across in this blog.

When I was seven, my mother took away the T.V remote and told me to go and read something. I’m twenty now and I’m still reading. I love it but it gets lonely, doesn’t it? Books are great companions but they can’t replace people. They can’t replace the thrill of being able to talk to others about things that excite you. They can’t replace that feeling of bubbling joy that comes with company that talks back.

This is why I created this blog; in the hopes that it might become a place where I and others can connect with like minded people and enjoy doing what we do best together – reading.

 

Why ‘Image to Ink’?

 

I wish I could say that I spent days researching to come up with this name and that there are layers and layers of metaphors to it. Frankly, that’s not true. However, that doesn’t mean that ‘Image to Ink’ is meaningless. It represents a desire. It represents a superpower I wish I had.

I think about it around the clock. I constantly find ways to manifest it.

Can you guess what it is?

Try. Maybe you’ll get it.

It’s the ability to ink my imagination; the ability to put to paper the vivid images, the other-worldly stories that play in my mind.

Image to Ink.

It makes sense now, doesn’t it?

Considering how much I think about it, it’s no wonder that ‘Image to Ink’ became the name of my blog. Moreover, I think it applies to many of us. Readers are whimsical creatures after all. We can’t exist without stories. And when we can’t read, we do the next best thing? We create stories. Now if only there was a way for them to be inked without going through the confidence eroding process of writing every word.

Alas! There isn’t one yet. So all we can do for now is sit with pens in hand or eyes glaring at a laptop screen, staring staring staring at a blank sheet. An alternative? Repeat after me: Image to Ink, Image to Ink, Image to Ink. Maybe if we say it enough, maybe if we want it enough, it will turn into the wandless spell we need it to be.
