Let me start off this ‘nablopomo’ with a Thank you
note to Swar who started it all off with an FB post.
Like so many
bloggers out there even I was looking for an excuse to write… I would like to
write everyday but then someone needs to push me or I need to have a typical
goal to achieve and that is exactly what Swar
The things that a blog marathon does to a
blogger is unbelievable, it starts giving you an eye for a post in everything.
You start lurking in a corner during conversations with your colleagues or your
family.. you start looking for a topic in even something as mundane as your
daily cup of coffee, also someone like me who usually sleeps through my 2 hour
morning journey to office remains wide awake looking at the scenes on the road
while our office bus zooms past…. lest I miss some very important topic to be
converted into a post from the morning scenes and hustle and bustle on the roads…
So apart from the funny things this blog
marathon does to you... eventually it gets on to you and grows on you, making
you sort of addicted to it.You start
looking forward to the moment when you actually zero in on a topic then start
writing and then when you finally hit the publish button .. it gives a high and
a sense of achievement.
Then comes the part when it gets over...
suddenly you are filled with an emptiness and you start feeling lost !! :)I can etch out these feeling here so clearly
because I just concluded a blog marathon in August which I started on my own to
challenge myself into writing and I was so happy when I actually completed 30
There were days when I missed writing a
post but then I compensated the next day by writing2 posts !!
Yeah! This is
really a madness
but a creative one and I am glad I joined it…
