One more year goes by and the regret of not writing as much as I should lingers. In 2017 I did have so much to write about. Well, here’s hoping 2018 is a much better year and also the year where I finally finish writing my book.
My top posts of 2017:
❣A Walk To Remember: A rainy July morning, two best friends and beautiful nature for company. It will always be a walk to remember by!
❣ Will You Read My Book?: A fiction inspired by someone’s wish tweet. I hope it gets fulfilled some day!
❣ Mourning: This was a much commented post. This one is so close to my heart!
❣ Wine in a Teacup: Based on a writing prompt. This was appreciated too by my tiny circle of readers.
❣ Delhi: An old fascination, an impromptu travel plan. Read about a Mumbai girl’s experiences in the capital city!
❣ Closure: Have you ever waited for an apology and being forgiven instead? This phenomenon is more common than I imagined. Fiction, based on a true experience.
❣ Panic Mode On: Written in the aftermath of the Elphinstone Road stampede.
❣ Game of Thrones: I was fascinated by Game of Thrones, the books as well as the series and then I read the Mughal series by Alex Rutherford. The similarities would blow your mind!
❣ Red Herring: I loved writing this. I think this is one of my most underrated posts.
2016 has been a very disappointing year in many ways. Mostly I feel sad that I haven’t written as much as I should. However, there were certain posts which I liked, compiled here for reference.
Dress to Impress Yourself: A famous blogger / writer wrote about how fat people should not wear leggings, tight dresses, yada yada yada. This post presents a counter view.
The Forbidden Temple: Forcing entry for women in Shani Temple created quite a furore last year.
Goa – Beyond Partying, Boozing and Sea Food: Best part of 2016. A vacation with parents.
Call me Fat, Maybe?: After Vogue did a photo shoot with plus sized models, comments on twitter flew, pathetic to nasty.
Ebooks: The year I discovered the joys of e books! 😀 (Free free free)
Write Away: In May 2016, I ran a contest to encourage writing. Check out posts with the tag Write Away. The best & most liked was: A letter to my not-yet-adopted Baby
Spare Tampons Anyone?: Inspired by yet another debate on twitter 😉
No means No!: Yet another inspired post, this time by a movie.
Writing is a great form of expression. Writing helps you relieve stress, makes you creative, opens up your imagination, improves your observation skills and you discover a new you!
Some people find it easy to write. Some people don’t. There could be various reasons for that.
✎ Not know how to put their thoughts into words
✎ Not sure if anyone would read what they write
✎ Never thought about it
✎ Don’t know what to write about
✎ Don’t want to create a blog
And so on!
