Hello beautiful readers,
I recently realised that I am hardly writing anything. I am not even reviewing books. It is not that I am too busy, it is just that my mind is not working. My mind is running in the Corporate Sector these days but my heart still bleeds for Literature. I still cry when Saint Joan was killed. I still feel loved at John Donne’s poetry. I still wonder about my purpose of life when I think about Waiting for Godot. I want to read so many classics and other latest books but still I am unable to. Although the Canadians teach me the habit of reading everyday still its not happening. When I travel in bus or a train, I see some book Nazis who are glued towards their kindles, ipads or books. They surely inspire me to read while I am commuting and I have started a book too. Soon I replaced that reading time with sleeping as in this country we all undergo lack of sleep.
There are so many things which I want to do but I am unable to. I write small shayaris, snippets, quotes and micro writeups but when I start writing a short story my mind just blocks my way. Everyone just ask me about my stories, and most importantly when I will publish my own book. The question just hovers over my mind every day and night. Still my mind is blocked.
Everything is going positive now and ofcourse, I am not in any type of Depression but still when it comes to writing something fictional, I am unable to. Maybe now my mind has taken the attraction towards Non Fictional writing where we just express our thoughts in the plain way. I am learning copy editing, Canadian Style of writing and practising which is used by journalists, Content Writers, PR Professionals.
The course inspire me to write but.. yes now this but has taken over the place and I really dont know what should I do to get my short story writing thing back. Any exercise that I should do? I am just clueless these days. Sometimes you feel directionless I guess. I know this much that I am not meant for 9 to 5 job. I know this much that I cannot live without writing henceforth, I write something or the other, either on my yourquote page or on whatsapp status. I need to overcome this writer’s block and I badly need suggestions.
