To write or not to write

Something’s wrong with me.

There, I said it. A lot of you must have been thinking the same ever since you set mouse on my blog, I know. But why am I realizing it so late? Because November 8th was my blog’s second birthday and I knowingly missed it because I was too lazy to write anything up. Not that I’m tired of milestones (definitely not that, ‘coz I so totally am not!), but something’s happening around me that just doesn’t want me to write. So what do I do? Analyze what makes me write and what makes me feel like tearing up this blog if I could –

What makes me write –

– Impending deadlines at work which will cost me my job if I slipped
– Lots of work at home which needs to be taken care of
– Absolutely nothing interesting happening around me
– Lack of motivation
– A broadband connection that refuses to work when most needed
– When there is no electricity at home and the emergency lamp doesn’t work
– When there is no electricity at home, the emergency lamp doesn’t work, I’m out of candles and the laptop’s battery is dying

What makes me not write –

– No or less work at work
– No or less work at home
– Basically just lots of free time on my hands
– Things happen, like blog birthdays and Diwali
– Friends, colleagues and blog-readers ‘requesting’ me to write
– I sit in front of the laptop, notepad open, fingers poised to type out my magnum opus
– New movies are released which I would love to rip apart without even seeing just because it has Shahrukh Khan looking like an 80yr old man with a 6 pack abs.

See what I mean? Now do I dare give you all false hopes that I will scribble something less nonsensical next time?

Something’s wrong with me.

P.S: Other Me says ‘Hey!’. Other Me also says if I don’t write anything on Prose and Verse soon, she’ll kick my backside to oblivion and take over my life completely. I have to admit, I’m tempted to have someone takeover my life.

P.P.S: Happy Second Birthday, Thought Process! Wish you many more such milestons, and may you bring lots of fame and money to your blog author.

    BTW, given your reasons to write and not write, I guess we can say: when going gets tough, you get writing πŸ˜€

    Shahrukh Khan looking like an 80yr old man with a 6 pack abs

    I guess Shahrukh is going to forget all the criticism (to put it lightly) he is getting on blogosphere once he sees his bank balance.
