Writing 101: Unlock the Mind

Writing 101: Unlock the Mind

And for your first twist? Publish this stream-of-consciousness post on your blog.

I’m wondering what keeps me from writing. Why my mind blocks the moment I think of writing something. Is it that I find nothing interesting in my life to share with others or I’m afraid that others will laugh on reading my post. Though I find friends here at word press very encouraging. Still i wonder should i torture them with my writing. Even if someone criticises it is for good as it helps you to improve your writing. One friend in fact said that while reading post he thought he was going through grocery list. was I angry? No. I thanked him for pointing it out. One more comment i got that my blog is a  boring. I think all comments good or bad help you. More criticism makes you try to improve yourself. I always welcome comments with tips to improve my writing. In previous session of Writing 101 few friends really helped me with wonderful tips. Also reading others blog helps immensely. I get to know that there are many ways to write a prompt. I don’t know my writing has improved or not but I have made many wonderful encouraging friends here also I get to read many excellent writing and get inspired by them. Writing for 20 minutes on this topic is very difficult. At least for me as on some daily prompt I find nothing more than  just ‘yes’ or ‘no’ . I think the biggest block in writing is lack of ideas and that’s where the Writing 101 helps. It gives one prompt daily. My drawback is that I take too much time to think on the subject and when I could come up with something, I’m late by two or three prompts. Still four minutes to go. It seems I am sitting in school exams, time is running away and my mind is blocked.

Daily Prompt- To-Do? Done!

Posted on

Daily Prompt- To-Do? Done!- Quickly list five things you’d like to change in your life. Now, write a post about a day in your life once all five have been crossed off your to-do list.

 

Given a chance I would exchange my unhealthy body with perfectly healthy one.

Sickness is the root cause of my laziness, procrastination, depression, bad time management and ill temper and much more.

How I would like to change everything and become a cheerful, healthy, hard working person.

At least for one day I would like to I wake up without any pain, any uneasiness, very fresh and cheerful, to a very pleasant weather. I want to sing, dance, go for a walk, swim in the sea, and play with sand. There is so much I would like to do.

Just for today when I can write off all the negativity and fill my life with all the positive pleasant emotions.

I will,

Turn anger into peace

Fear into trust

Sorrows into happiness

Worry into caring

Mistrust into faith

Ingratitude into gratitude

Share peace and happiness with everyone

Pass on this day’s cheerfulness to others.

Happy Anniversary

Posted on

HappY Anniversary! You registered on WordPress.com 3 years ago.

I registered on WordPress.com 3 years ago! It’s ‘Happy Anniversary!’ today.

Am I happy That I registered with WordPress.com?

Yes, very much. It has given me a chance to write about some topics which I thought I could never write with Daily Prompts especially about myself.

Writing about myself I discovered that I have some positive qualities as well as some negative also which I overlooked before.

I started writing with few lines and now I can write short stories.

I made so many friends here who encouraged me to write by appreciating posts with positive comments.

I get to read many excellent posts by other blogger friends.

Weekly Photo Challenges  helped me to  discover my love for photography.

Thanks to WordPress.com Team, and support.wordpress.com/create  to help me publish ove 500 posts which itself is a miracle for a non-writer like me and the full credit goes to WordPress.com.

Thanks a lot for reminding me friends.

I’m grateful for your help and support.

Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Clouds

The sky, a perfect empty canvas, offers clouds nonetheless. They shift and drift and beg interpretation… such is the nature of art. ~Jeb Dickerson

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. ~Rabindranath Tagore

I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers,
From the seas and the streams;
I bear light shade for the leaves when laid
In their noonday dreams….
~Percy Bysshe Shelley, “The Cloud”

Daily Prompt- Locked and Sealed

Posted on

Daily Prompt- Locked and Sealed- Can you keep a secret? Have you ever — intentionally or not — spilled the beans (when you should’ve stayed quiet)?

 

I hope it will not be called bragging if I say that I am very good at keeping secrets.

Still I can recall one incident where I was guilty of spilling the beans, unintentionally though.

When I was in school final, we were four very close friends since class eight, we shared everything between us.

One day my closest friend KK asked me whether I can keep a secret or not. I said yes and she told me that her parents have arranged her marriage and soon she is going to get engaged. She requested me to keep my mouth shut as she herself will tell other friends and give us a party. I was very happy and wanted to share it with all but she made me promise to keep quiet.

Next day when all were chatting in lunch break one of my friend complained that we did not have a party for a long time. Suddenly I said that KK is going to give us one nice party soon.

All friends forced her to tell her the reason for the party. Unwillingly she told them.

It was a slip of tongue, I apologies to her but she did not forgave me and stopped talking to me since then.

My friends also requested her to forgive me but she was adamant.

We resumed talking after sometime as we both were dying to talk to each other.

Since then I have never revealed a secret.

Daily Prompt- Advantage of Foresight

Posted on

 

Daily Prompt- Advantage of Foresight- You’ve been granted the power to predict the future! The catch — each time you use your power, it costs you one day (as in, you’ll live one day less). How would you use this power, it at all?

 

Methinks,

Future is unpredictable and that’s what makes life interesting.

What is the use of predicting future unless you have the power to change it? 

Just knowing what lies ahead and lessen one day of your life doesn’t makes sense unless it is good for you and you can change it if it is bad.

Life already is full of problems, why add more worries and lose peace of mind.

Your choices and decisions taken today make your future.

So take lessons from yesterday, live in today and work hard for better future.
