Hi everyone! Hope all of you are well and keeping your busy lives even busier with some wonderful reading and writing. Life seems quite dull without it.
It gives me immense pleasure to ANNOUNCE the LAUNCH of MASTICADORESINDIA on September 1, 2021.
MASTICADORES is the brainchild of the very talented and creative Mr. Juan Re Crivello. Please click on his name to find out more about him. His website is in Spanish, so please opt for the English translation.
With collaborations in many countries already, MASTICADORES has set it sights on INDIA, a country with much talent and creativity. I am honored to be appointed the EDITOR of MASTICADORESINDIA. It will be a tough job that requires diligence and hard work but neither scare me.
The objective is to showcase the writings of Indian and international writers and poets, discover talent, and give it the appropriate platform to shine. Age, gender, experience are not a criteria. It’s the writing that will speak on behalf of its creator.
I will be providing more information on this in the coming days.
For now, I will enjoy this moment of glory. We writers are forever striving for such achievements. And I am very grateful for each opportunity I get.
All those writers interested in being a part of MASTICADORESINDIA, please go through the below-mentioned websites to get an idea of the quality writing being submitted by writers from all parts of the world.
Please read the original post by clicking on either of the two blue links given below. Or you could click on both and show some extra love and support.
Certain parts of the original post have been translated from Spanish, so there may be certain pronouns that don’t express the female gender correctly. So, please bear with this.
I’m also providing my Author Bio below just in case you’re unable to read it on the original post, as it may read in Spanish depending on the device you’re using. Thank you so much!
MasticadoresIndia will be born on September 1! — Gobblers / Masticadores
Terveen Gill is an author of English graphic novels on Sikh religion and history. She works with Sikh Comics, who have forty titles to their name. Her work profile includes story research, scriptwriting, and art direction. She has self-published three short stories e-books on Amazon and was one of the top ten winners in the Times of India – Write India 2 short story competition.
A Computer engineering graduate, she furthered her knowledge in the field of writing by obtaining a diploma in Creative Writing from The Writers Bureau based in the United Kingdom. Terveen is a writer for the e-publications ‘The Writing Cooperative’ and ‘The Ascent’. Her passions also include scripting and directing short films which have been shortlisted and showcased by FTC Talent and Glass House Festival in 2020.
Having keenly observed life and its finer nuances (some downright scary), she flavors her writing with diverse shades of struggle, perseverance, and a never-say-die attitude. Her versatile writing style is her strength and has seen her through many seasons of writing. Two of her novels, works in progress, will soon see the light of day.
She has had the pleasure of growing up on two different continents. Harboring fond memories of her childhood years in the United States, she now lives in Chandigarh, a beautiful city in North India.
I like the photo. It shows the more Indian in you……

I think that’s a great idea, Prapti. I can see that you have a blog. Keep writing on it regularly. And also check out other writers. Reading is necessary if you want to write well. Hope to see you around again. Good luck! 🙂

I like the work of Bogdan Dragos who seems to be a regular
Yes, he does write well.
Hi Terveen: I can’t find where you click for the English translation
Hi John, The two links at the bottom are in English. Mr. Crivello’s website is in Spanish. If you’re using Google Chrome as your browser, the google translate option should be in the web address bar towards the right, just left of the bookmark option. If you’re using Safari on an Apple device then you probably have to download Microsoft Translator App. That should do it. Let me know what happens.
thanks Terveen; I will experiment
Wow, this is wonderful news, Terveen! Congratulations to you, my dear friend! 🤗❤

Mazal tov! 😀
(btw, how do you calculate how many minutes it takes to read a particular blog post of yours?)
Thanks David! Todah! (Is this correct?)
I have a plug-in that does it for me. Wanted the reader to be aware of the time it’ll take.
I’m looking forward to a submission or two from you, David. Are you in? 🙂
Yes, “todah” is correct – well done 🙂
I’m a bit confused by the Masticadores groups – why are there so many of them? aren’t they all intended for different countries?
They are. But then writing isn’t limited to boundaries. It’s an opportunity for all.
And not all countries have them. 🙂
