Rainbow Road

The hardest part of resumption is that you probably wouldn’t know where to begin! And if you would, you wouldn’t know how. But there’s always a way. I haven’t posted in days. In 42 days to be precise. And I couldn’t possibly allow myself to pop up out of nowhere and just post an article on “A Brief History of Impressionism or something”. It’s something I love to do, that’s a sure thing. To write articles about different artistic movements, myths, music and many more (literally anything that comes in mind). But I somewhere felt the urge to write about the absence or break I had been on before I got into my regular blogging schedule. Back in the days when I was just a rug rat my parents would buy me drawing books! There would be apples and bananas. God, there were always apples and bananas in drawing books. But most importantly there would be drawings of suburbs and villages. Drawings that I was fond of. They were like pieces of music, I guess, …

An Ocean in between the Waves

For the past two days I was absent. I could not blog. It’s somewhat ironic especially when the last blog that I had published was on not breaking the chain of daily blogging. The absence was somewhat both intentional and unintentional. But it was more of a imprudent mistake. For that reason I could not entirely be absolved or blamed. So what happens when you aim to blog on a daily basis but cannot? “You feel terrible. You feel like you will never blog again. You want to smash the computer and want to smash anything that comes in your hand and then you break even more.. You just go on a rampage and wreck everything.” Well, absolutely not. These things do and should not happen. And if it happens to you, let me tell you..it’s absolutely okay to take a break. And if anything, it’s actually good to take a break sometimes. So when you comeback you can get a fresher aspect of writing. You can have new ideas or you can just write …

Someday the Waves

Looked through my window and it’s almost dark out. It’s only 4:48 in the afternoon or might I say evening. I had a lazy day today. It was almost to the point where i thought I’d not write and was going to give up on daily blogging. One half of me had had every excuse to give up as well. I thought I am going to post something really amazing tomorrow. Something informative and interesting and would take an ample amount of research in order to formulate; so it’d be precise to skip a day and do some research on the topic. while the other half of me didn’t want to break the chain of daily blogging at all. I supposed it’d be unnecessary and improper. Especially when I didn’t have a proper reason to not write. It was an incessant conflict of self. And it transformed my sheer idleness to restlessness. So I decided to give it a try. Because sitting there and dwelling upon whether or not to write or post was not getting me …

The Sound of Settling

Last night I got an notification from WordPress. It said “You’ve received 100 followers on Community Nap.” I was happy to see the progress. I mean, it has just been a month since I’m actively posting. And it made me want to write even more. However, today it felt kind of different. I was not in a mood of writing at all since morning. I guess the spirit of Saturday was all over me. But the fact that i swore to post everyday till tomorrow in the beginning of this week compelled me to just sit down and start writing. But I had not been able to come up with any idea until I had to go out. I guess it’s an impediment for a lot of bloggers to come up with something to write. And that is somewhere absolutely normal. We sit in front of the computer. We just start to dwell on the topic we try to write and at the end….There’s nothing. A sort of Writer’s Block that is absolutely common among …
