#54 Why I write?

Why I write?

On the occasion of first anniversary of my blog, it will be unfair on my part if I don’t thank my readers. Thank you all readers for being a wonderful part of my journey through words. Your valuable viewpoints have always encouraged me to give my best. No one is perfect even though everyone strives for perfection. So, every writer needs critics of his work to improve. As, to err is human, and I’m no exception.

I’m filled with a sense of joy as well as satisfaction the moment I reflected back to find the number of posts in my blog- 55 and that’s all within a year!! It’s something not ordinary for me because of my involvement in non-literary field. By profession, I’m an undergraduate technical student. When I travelled back my memory lane, I found it’s on Mar 30, 2013, I started publishing the written stuffs in my blog. There was no solid reason behind publishing the stuffs and I’d almost no idea about BLOG then. As far as I remember, I wrote an article on “Knowledge is power” to submit for an all India essay contest for CSR magazine. Unfortunately, the essay written by me did not get published but that incident urged me to publish my article. The completion of that essay gave me much confidence as I wrote something after almost 2 years. Internet is a wide platform to gain knowledge on anything. Surfing provided me all the information about blog that I wanted to know and this accelerated my interest. Later on, reader’s feedback boosted my confidence.

If I’m ever asked for the reasons “Why I write?”  , I’ve numerous reasons to cite-
1) Writing- my passion
Since childhood, I’ve always been inclined to reading and writing. In simple words, writing is an activity that I would like to do all my life.
2) Writing -My hobby
Writing is my favourite past time. To be honest, I can regard it to be an all-time-hobby for me. Since hobbies are ought to be performed in leisure hours, I don’t want to change the definition of hobby through a self assigned tag-“all-the-time”. As I’m into a world dedicated to technology rather than literature, writing has become an auxiliary task, but I rarely miss any chance to write. Whenever I get time, be it in lecture halls, during boring and monotonous lecture, seminar room, lab, I try to scribble down random stuffs.
3) Writing-excellent medium of expression
I find writing to be an excellent medium of expression. One has all sorts of liberty to write down whatever he feels like. It can be an act of rendering lips to your own heart. It lets me hear the words of my heart. I also believe that written words are many times more influential than spoken words and there’s always a scope of correction in writing unlike in speaking.

4) Writing- an act of pacifying mind
Our mind is always filled with countless thoughts. Each second millions and millions of thoughts keep on baffling us. Writing helps me to keep a track on my thoughts. It also provides me a chance to engage myself in a useful process and preventing my mind to be a devil’s workshop in an ideal state.
5) Writing- an insight to life
The act of writing has broadened my perception to life as I’ve started observing everything around me more carefully. As I like to write non-fictional stuffs mostly, I derive the motivations from real life experiences.

I’d never planned to write this much amount of articles. It all happened randomly….born out of an unidentified interest.

I expect to get all supports and feedback from you readers…

  1. And as imagination bodies forth
    The forms of things unknown, the poet’s pen
    Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
    A local habitation and a name.
    - William Shakespeare (" A MIDNIGHT DREAM ")

  2. This is a good piece of work, expressing yourself and interacting with your readers. With times your words may find more expression and attraction. Mere alphabets can not express themselves unless these alphabets must be arranged into words and words to sentences and finally sentences must get a breathe of life to attach it to readers. It the same sequence as life manifests. Mere body can be of no use unless it get the life force.

    May coming days bring more writing for readers. Keep on writing.
