Hello everyone !
This beautiful world of blogging that lays down the path for one to pen-down absolutely anything that flows out of the mind and heart was something I discovered about 2 months ago. I’ve had 10 posts up on my blog since then and it’s been one hell of a joy ride so far ! Extremely motivating ( and highly addictive !)
I am someone who cannot distinguish between the words “writing” and “breathing” – and so there were a very few ( or maybe none) inhibitions involved when I started blogging. Writing 101 seemed like a terrific idea of further indulging in my insane obsessive reading and writing extravaganza. I stumbled upon it on the Daily Post one fine morning and so, latched on!
Once again – A big hello to all fellow bloggers and new ones on board 🙂
Blogging 101 asks me “Who I am & Why I’m here” – About Me – Clicking this link should pretty much cover that up ! And somewhere along our blogging journey , you’ll find out everything else that interests, intrigues
and you find questionable with regard to me – My writing mirrors who I am.
Today’s Writing 101 question – Why do I write.. – is a question that I have most elaborately addressed and highlighted upon, on my very first post and so would love it if you guys peaked in for a bit 🙂 – ” Start Writing No Matter What.. The Water Does Not Flow Until The Faucet Is Turned On..” – Louis L’amour. – This link should direct you to my post.I would like to make a few additions though…now that I am no longer new to my blog.
With time and letting out the words that have been banging on the walls of my head – I have come to understand that I write because I have something to tell the world…I write because something that I go through is another thing that someone else could perhaps relate to…I write so that I could slowly unleash each fragment of my mind and put it out there so that the whole of me is alive and kicking ! I write because I breathe… I breathe because I write.
My blog currently holds 5 columns;
Me, Myself and I – A place where it’s all me and my perceptions.
My World Through The Eyes Of A Camera – My passion for photography unleashed.
Midnight Indulgences – Poetic stories of not more than 5 – 6 lines that creepily roam around the corners of my head while I’m trying to sleep.
Food For Thought! – Ideas and thoughts that I would like the world to stop and ponder upon.
When The Music Speaks For Me… – My soulful connection to music.
and starting today –
Writing 101 & Blogging 101– all posts in response to the questions posed by Writing 101 & Blogging 101.
….and so this is how far my unwinding has worked out until now. With time I hope to expand the columns and further let out everything that makes a connection with me and attach the same to my flow of thoughts and words that drip down the tip of my pen.
I hope you all enjoy this outburst of passions as much as I do and find it as liberating as I have ! Here’s to everyone on board !!
” Why write? To shine a light; To right a wrong; To shape chaos into art; To know what we think; To pose difficult questions; To challenge our own beliefs; to connect. Because we have to. ” – Dani Shapiro
