Do you have one sentence of advice for new writers?

Nothing lights up the happy parts of the brain faster than a good book.

A souvenir is basically a memento, a keepsake, or a remembrance. It is something that a person acquires; something to which a person associates his or her memories with. It may be an object collected which sums up the dearest of memories. Souvenir is my memento to my experiences; it is a memento to my remembrance. It holds a very deep meaning in my life as it is associated with the person who made my heart weep and who left my soul with many bruises, but leaving everything aside, he who also gave me my first book. Souvenir is not just a book for me; writing it down required immense courage but once it was complete, it bestowed me with a lot of happiness that came with fulfillment and a sense of achievement.
