Long after his actions ruined a long-term relationship, an author named John Warsaw suffers from severe writer’s block. He struggles to find inspiration as he continues his failed attempts to win her back. Giving in, he inadvertently unravels his own psyche as he finds himself writing a story he had vowed never to write, a story about an author named John Warsaw who followed a critically different path. Exploring heartbreak, human nature, and the forces that drive us, this thought provoking short story begs you to read deeper.
Amal Desai is a man of many hats. However none of them seem to fit quite right, most likely due to an oddly shaped head. He was once a "Receiving Associate" at Walmart (dark times). He then became a graduate of Rush University, allowing him to become a healthcare professional and a college professor in the field of Vascular Ultrasound. By a Shyamalan twist, he is currently a small business owner by day, author by... whenever he manages to find the time.

This very short story delves into the mind of an author with writer's block and he attempts to create a reality very different from his own life. The writing is promising, and should the author continue to write, I'm sure we will see great things from him. The work, like that of most new authors, does need some polishing (for example "through" instead of "threw"), but overall it is an easy read. Also, it does need to be properly formatted.
It could easily be turned into a full length book. My mind started with a "what happened to the ex?" And being the sick freak I am, already developed a whole story about how the author killed the ex, but now regrets it and wanted to create a utopia out of guilt. Keep writing Mr. Desai.
