Why do you write?

In this Digital era, there are thousands of mediums which allow us to express ourselves. Still, Writing is one of the oldest and beautiful ways of expressing ourselves. There is a lot of magic involved in writing. Believe me – Even now, nothing can match the excitement of reading a printed book.

Why did I start to write? Let me tell you how I started writing. I was making New Year resolutions each and every year. One of the most common resolutions which I make includes recording my daily activities in a diary. Every year, I start writing my daily activities in the diary but I’ve never continued to write for more than a month. Even this year, I started recording my daily activities. However, I did not continue after 4th January 2020, which is just four days after New Year. Now and then, when I get a flow with words, I write them down. Later, I type my writings on beautiful backgrounds and post it on my social media platform like Instagram and Twitter. I had fairly good response from friends and family. They liked reading them. So, I continued posting my writings. I won’t say that I have mastered the art of writing, but I love the fun involved in writing. The most beautiful part about writing and posting in social media platforms is that when people actually give a read, it makes them happy. There are times when people whom I had lost contact previously call me to just discuss about my writings. These kind gestures act as a beautiful motivation for every writer, I guess. I know, great stories are not said by great writers but are said by great listeners/readers. Cheers to all my beautiful readers, I started writing my own personal blog on the month of May 2020. Ever since then, I am beautifully collecting my thoughts to give the best shot of literature. I won’t say that the blogging journey is a bed of roses that when you post something, the whole World will be reading them. Every journey needs a beginning – the first step I would say. For me, Blogging has introduced me into a whole new World of words. Literature is beautiful if you focus on how to play with words. Words, if used properly can open anyone’s heart. That’s why our elders kept on warning us to choose our words carefully. Yes, my 10th grade Math Teacher constantly told us this: “You cannot take back your words. It’s like spilled milk”. I realised her words later in my life. Better late than never, I am happy for the realization. In the first month of Blogging, I hardly got any views. I was posting the links to my blogposts everywhere possible. Marketing a blog is a tough task – tougher for a beginner. Little by little, I started gaining audience. The best part is when people started writing to me in the comment section. It’s what every Blogger craves for. Now, it’s been almost three months since I have started Blogging. Thank God, I was able to reach quite a lot number of beautiful and kind readers.
