And then at 2:00 a.m. one night, I decided I couldn’t stay away any longer. Guess this is what they mean when they say, “I don’t know, I just have to do it.” Well, blogging is something I have to do, only I realised it now. The reasons I left WordPress are all still here- I’m still in college, still in the club, still stuck between piles of uncompleted assignments and worksheets, still sleep- deprived, still running out of things to write on- but, here I am- still trying to put together my comeback post! 😀
Okay so here’s the thing, I need help. There’s this writing contest I came across few months back organised by a leading daily in India. They give you short passages (kinda like writing prompts) and you have to build up a story around it, using the particular passage anywhere in the story. A new prompt comes every month and I saw this month’s prompt and it just clicked (you know just like snap!). I mean I have a story in my mind which fits in and it is actually remotely inspired by an incident that occurred with me long back. So, I was thinking that I should go for it.
But here’s the catch, I have just two days to submit the story (yeah I just woke up!) and I’m really not sure if I can write a complete story- I mean with all the dialogues and grammar and punctuation and blah blah blah. I’m a good story-teller (at least my friends think so) but to put it all in words is pretty difficult and I’m confused. So, with just two days left, I think I shall have to pass.
To tell you the truth, I don’t even know why I’m writing all this up, I mean what help could I possibly get, it’s not like anyone else can write my story while I recite it to them! But, I just felt like sharing so…
P.S. I decided to keep the title of the post ‘Why not’ as in “Why not blog about it? Why not just get back and kicking!” 🙂
