One Year Of Writing!

Today, it was a great surprise for me when the website wished me a happy one year anniversary! It has been a year! OMG. Not completely believing it, I cross-checked with the date when I first clicked on ‘publish’ – 15 April, 2014!

Woot!!!

A lot can happen in a year. A few things you plan for, while others just unfold!  One thing I have realised is there is a great pleasure in doing something you love, but the thrill of doing something that makes you uncomfortable , and you successfully overcoming you inhibitions, is incomparable. And keep doing it till it becomes a part of you,  that you actually start another blog ( yeah, blatant marketing – upluscollective.wordpress.com), are always thinking of what next should I write about, are looking around for inspiration, and are always learning.

In addition to that, I also have realised that I use ‘absolutely’ a lot. And also, ‘also’ and ‘and’.

For me, just like I had hoped in my first post,  it was quite an experience. But I don’t think I have been able to really “improve” in my writing skills, or even to “untangle” my thoughts – I may just have ended up tangling them even further, in fact. But I am totally enjoying this journey, and that is what really matters!

Cheers to one year and more! 😀

#Note to self – Think about the next thing you never thought you would do, and jump (into it, of course)! 😉

The Launch

Well, yes! I would like to call this a launch – a huge step.

I have always been afraid of penning things down. I haven’t even ever had a “I-have-a-secret-diary” phase. I think by writing something – ANYTHING – a line, paragraph or an article, we exhibit a part of ourselves. It is like sharing a secret, making a statement, shedding a layer of our mind, and if I think too hard, beneath all layers -it feels like trusting someone. There, I said it.

So, by starting a blog -which, hopefully, I will regularly update, I am trusting a whole lot of people -again, hopefully, a whole lot will read, with my thoughts. It has taken a lot of me to start writing, or so to say, sharing.

Also, I don’t think I can write. And I think I am right. Especially, when I see so much talent all around me, I probably even get an inferiority complex. But then, as they say, “There is no illusion greater than fear”. My father defines fear as False Evidence Appearing Real. I feel, its time I take my father’s word and here I am, all ready to dive in.

I am sure writing will let me know myself better, untangle my thoughts, and make my vision clearer.

I will need a lot of your support. And feedback.

Here’s to a new beginning! 😀
