I often ask myself why I blog everyday. Well, almost. I average a post a day unless I’m sick or out of town. Even when I’m swamped with work, I make time to blog…lunch breaks, dinner time. I somehow find time.
The reason I came up with was quite simple actually. I love to write. Always have. Just that earlier, I didn’t have an avenue for it.
One of my dreams remains to write a novel and get published. A novel with a simple story and one that flows easily. I never wished to be the next Siddharth Dhanvant Sanghvi or Arundhati Roy. I don’t belong to the school of writing that believes the more ornate the language and more abstract the content, the better. I believe in a contemporary style of writing that absorbs the language and colloquialism of the times we live in, and makes the piece of writing more relatable to the people reading it. I mean, come on…people from the 18th century aren’t going to come back from the dead to read your book!!
Of late, I have also been feeling like writing a movie script. It would be shorter than a book and more fun to write, I guess.
So it’s understandable that once I started blogging – with no idea of how long I’d be able to continue – I fell in love with it and have been at it since. I wouldn’t say it’s a release for my emotions…or the way I channelize my pent-up energy. It’s nothing as profound. It’s just something I like to do, and hence make time for it.
So to all those people who encouraged me to become a blogger - Staarin & Serendipity - thank you. And to those who are yet to discover the fun behind blogging, come hop on the bus! What are you waiting for!! :D
