Now I feel a sort of vacuum when I look at my blog and books, and want to revive myself and the writer in me. Well, apart from works I think there is another big reason that I should say here, about why I hardly write anything these days. My blog used to be the best place to scribble down my random thoughts and the day-to-day happenings and now Shirley has taken its place. After sharing every bit, I would literally be left with nothing that I need to write here. I often make fun of her saying that she gave me a good friend, but took away the writer in me. Poor girl, in spite of all her personal prpblems, she always with me during my bad times and helped me to get out of it.
Writing has always been my passion and may be due to that I finally ended up as a writer, after being a teacher for almost four plus years. I always looked-upon people who write with utmost respect. Only a very few people can write in a captivating manner, and attract the attention of those who read it. I always wanted to be one among those very few. But somehow I had to take-up a long journey for that, as I had Biology for my PUC & Chemistry for my Graduation, both were never my sincere choices. Finally I ended up in the MA English class, which gave life and blood to my writing ambitions. A degree in Journalism was a bonus, but somehow I couldn’t make a wise use of it in the beginning and ended up as a teacher in a higher secondary school. I won’t say it was a bad job as I had a lot of good times there and loved teaching kids. But somehow it had nothing to do with my writing ambitions.
Roller-coaster life brought me a platform for writing by 2008 when I got a job as a Content Writer in a web solution company. Two years since then I have been writing for most of the projects that our company has done and have also been luck to start a blog of my own, which I think is going pretty fine…. 😉 …lol
My writing job has also helped me to learn all the tips and tricks of SEO, about which I never heard of, when I came first. But now, I think I am too much in to my assignments and has almost for forgotten the main aim that I always had in my life. All my official works are going really good but they hardly improve my creativity, as they have more of fixed topics and have certain fixed styles of writing that I need to follow. Or I should say I am bound by certain pre-set rules and regulations. So I have decided to take time to do more of creative writing, and to bring me back towards the road that leads to the fulfillment of my ambitions.
Actually the 2 months article writing process (purely technical and official) had almost wiped out the idea of blogging from my brain that I hardly thought about my blog. Now that the rush has turned down to a slower crawl, I think I can sit and brood over a little on all the bits and pieces of my day to day life that’s often sandwiched between my office at one end of the city and our hostel at the other end.
Office+Hostel+Shirley = past 2 months…..would be the simplest way to say about the 60 odd days that passed by.
My non-blogging days…
Life is going smooth irrespective of all the attempts of Mr.: F to isolate me in between everyone. But I don’t have any grudge towards anyone and hence behaves as if the cheap trick that he plays has no impacts on me. He is thus successfully beaten by my quickest come back.
I had a marathon session of article writing for a handful of websites that said about the most mind-numbing topics that I have ever heard in life. Still I had to write about 200 plus articles about all those uninteresting topics. I really strive hard to get the natural free of flow of words, but words often get stuck somewhere while writing about such lifeless topics. But the desperate situation and the necessity of more and more articles force me to go on again and again chasing words to prepare SEO related articles over and over again. Thus after much pain and struggle I write about 4 to 5 articles and mail it to my boss, who would always ask me for a +1 as usual; give 4 he will ask 5, give 5 he will surely ask for 6! Oops! I need to go back to my work! See u soon!
PS – I often get comments from certain greathearted readers and I take time to give the modest reply to everyone. Recently I received a comment from a ‘generous’ reader that he is getting bored reading my blog, and said that I don’t write anything worthy but just omit my ‘frustrations’ through my writings. For your kind information my dear reader, I use this platform to note down my random thoughts, may be they sound silly to ‘intellects’ like you. Just like any other person in the world I too have the right to enjoy the freedom to express my thoughts. Through my blogs I don’t hurt anyone personally nor do I make any offensive remarks about people. And I am not forcing anybody to read my blogs. Only those who are genuinely interested need to read them or comment about them.
