If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears the beat of a different drummer

– H. D. Thoreau

Thinking out loud

December 5, 2013 Leave a comment

Why can’t I write? Why won’t I write? I don’t remember how many times I have given thought to this – indeed, so many times on this blog itself.

It’s not that I cannot – I definitely can. A few posts on this blog itself have surprised me. And in the past, I have submitted my work to other places – they were accepted and published as well.

So what is it that stops me?

Fear, I think.

Fear: that my writing will not turn out to be good.

Fear: that I will not be able to complete it – that I will leave it hanging.

Fear: that I am not good enough to achieve this.

Fear: that it will not be accepted/ appreciated by those from whom I need that the most.

That said – will I ever write what I wanted to? It’s a question that I have asked myself too many times. And each time, as today, the answer is the same: I am not quite sure.

Wake up.

Open your eyes, and look inside.

Recognize who you are, and accept your strengths. Seize your dreams.

And don’t worry about what the world feels – they are your dreams. Not for anyone else’s consumption – solely yours.

Wake up, Neo.

A tough choice

Should you do:

  1. What you want to do?
  2. What you think your audience wants you to do?
  3. What your audience actually wants?

It’s a tough choice, isn’t it? I think the best thing that can happen is for #1 and #3 to coincide.

My fingers are crossed.

Happy New Year!!

The whole of December gone by, and no post from me. Can you imagine that? A month with no writing, no musing (on this site at least) and no ruminating out loud.

But then there’s always a reason for everything, isn’t there?

The month of December just whizzed past me – a whirlwind of sorts. I had some extra challenges at work, had to move into a new apartment, I went on a trip to India and moved houses there too – the works.

And oh, yes – I brought my family along with me as well.

In case you are wondering – yes, I am happy.

Questions

Can I? Yes, of course. No doubt about it.

Will I? Not so sure, actually.
