My Lame? Excuses

I wrote my last post on July 8th – the day I came back home. I watched six seasons of Friends for the rest of my vacations – till 22nd. I have written three odd posts in the past two months. No. I haven’t been busy, atleast not until now. I’m 2 weeks down the 5th semester. Two weeks which constituted a bulky chunk of the free time I am gonna get this semester. I intended to give a full post for the fact that – college has resumed and that I’m totally excited by this semester’s course content. My laptop wasn’t very well, by the way, faulty touch-pad, keyboard, LAN-Port and what not. Not that I’m putting my share of blame on it and I’m sorry to have kept you waiting.

If I were to be completely honest with you, I don’t like writing. I really don’t know if I appear otherwise. 7/10 people on WordPress say that they love writing in the get-to-know-me section of their blog – not a statistical figure by the way. I, if am not in a state of emotional turmoil, lie in the minority. I do not like writing, BUT I like having written. The feeling of elation on having written something exactly the way I wanted, of coming out right – is the sole trolley that drives this blog. Writing is hard work for someone like me – who after deciding what to put down, exhaustively thinks over other possible ways to word it – “Could I have come out better? Is this the right word for it?”. All of this is too much for me to take and on the rare occasions when I do get into my ahem ahem.. “blogging zone” on late nights with the lights turned out; lying on my 6 x 2 feet hostel bed, I end up shutting the lid of my laptop for thought after having written a couple of lines and then dozing off for the 8 a.m. lecture with my laptop beside me.

I’m really exhausted right now and I wish I could give this post a little more direction but I don’t wanna save it up in drafts for another day. So let us agree to regard this post as – backstage view of Starfish Arena. Though it’s not complete. I have told you the way I put off but not the way I write. That’d be for sometime later. I’ll be posting in the following couple of days.
I promise.

Wishes and all…

P.S.
No P.S. this time. ๐Ÿ˜›

  1. “The feeling of elation on having written something exactly the way I wanted, of coming out right โ€“ is the sole trolley that drives this blog.” Exactly how I feel. Why the name starfish arena btw?

    1. I am just glad that this trolley drives someone elseโ€™s blog too. ๐Ÿ˜€
      And the nameโ€™s backstory is a little long that will perhaps need a separate post for itself. Stay tuned. ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜‰
