I find it very edifying, even illuminating. Your persistence, for one thing, is amazing--moving ahead toward the writer's life you planned, doggedly learning from your mistakes, having faith that you would get there. As someone else commented here, you've put together a "master class" for writers of fiction. Writing advice is good.
Stories aren't worth reading. Advice could have been condensed into a nice article or lecture. Back in my college days my aspiring musician friends would talk about master classes, where an established pro would show them how it was done. Oddly enough, some of the best, they said, were from younger musicians, far enough along to have made it, but still not so far ahead that they had forgotten what it was like when they were still trying to grasp the basics of performance.
Tobias Buckell a younger pro, has pulled his personal slush pile together with insightful commentary to give what is effect a master class in the art of the science fiction short story. This is a great collection for any aspiring writer.

So, what is in it for the reader like myself who has no intention of producing his own product? Surprisingly, quite a lot. There is a certain amount of fun in learning how the trick is done, kind of like taking the backstage tour at your favorite attraction. If you disregard than the fun of seeing what is behind the curtain, even the roughest of these stories is worth reading in its own right. We read science fiction for a lot of reasons. One of the basic ones for me is that moment where something stretches your perceptions and you say to yourself, "Whoa, that's cool.
If you don't need a master class, at least read it to see a solid writer with a great imagination learning his chops. If you find yourself reading the author's introductions to stories as carefully as the stories themselves; if you're a writer who thinks about that mysterious thing called story, do consider this book. Tobias Buckell is offering something unique: Lessons to be learnt. Nascence has really crystallised some ideas I've been having about 'story,' and given me some new insights.

We believe that startups need to focus on societal problems like healthcare, sanitation, education, transportation, alternate energy management and others, which would help deal with the issues that India and the world face. India while being a distant third runnerup in the unicorn race with the US and China, presently boasts of a nascent market that is hungry for innovation. For the US and China, on the verge of becoming saturated markets, the entrepreneurial ecosystem benefits in a different way — with enlightening investors and mature technologies coming to the fore.
However, emerging economies like India offer all the delights and trials that comes with the position, leapfrogging its way to profitability and with a government that is committed to a vision of Smart Cities and Digital India. The only thing required is to launch at the right time in right place and bring in innovations which have never been seen anywhere globally to nail it further. Meha has engineering and MBA degrees, but she has always been a writer at heart. It was the perfect combination of utilising her research and analytical skills and her enthusiasm for writing that sparked her interest in writing about the Indian startup ecosystem — the latest tech and gadgets and the startups that create them.
