Welcome to my blog where you can enjoy creative content that is a result of either my imagination or experience. I am in my middle age and always had a passion for writing but never had the courage to pen down. Some time ago, I realized that I can express myself through writing, and it gives me immense satisfaction. Yet there were so many fears, ifs and buts that stopped me from pursuing my dream.
Finally, one day, when I found a mentor just by chance I thought of letting go of my inhibitions. He was a retired English teacher who agreed to guide me on how to write stories. I chose him because he not only knew what is creative writing but also other fundamental aspects of writing good stories, which are:
- Theme and plots
- Story structure
- Developing characters
- Language, tone, and style
A brave decision
Starting a blog where I would be free to express my creative writing ideas was quite a bold decision on my part. Here I would choose which stories to write.
When I started with the curious idea of penning down my thoughts on paper, I was initially very hesitant. It was very tough to set the balls rolling, when I thought about spinning a yarn of my imagination, dreams, artistic pursuits, like and dislikes.
My whole idea was to be innovative with words and to be playful and creative while writing stories or my life experiences. Until many years, I did not know how to implement those technical strategies as part of my creative journey, but when I became slightly mature and got perfect guidance from my mentor and support from my soul-mate and children, I dared to follow my passion and take it to another level. All of them have proved to be my inspiration and inevitably led me to start this blog.
My blog, my passion
So here is my blog–an attempt of showcasing my talent. My stories will be based on my experiences, which encompass ‘life’ in general and me in particular, or they will be fictional stories born out of my imagination and creativity.
Do let me know if you like them.
