Back Again

write, pen, book

It’s time to write.

Yeah, so it didn’t quite work out like I expected.

It’s been four years since I moved my blog to a paid hosting service. In those four years, the number of posts per year didn’t reach double figures. In fact, my interaction with the blog was limited to changing the theme every few months and promising myself that I’d start writing more. I didn’t.

So this year, I finally threw in the towel and decided to come back to the place where it all started. At least now I don’t have to worry about my WordPress installation getting hacked or tinkering with themes and plugins to get them to work properly. Nope. No more excuses.

Time to get my hands dirty, conjure something interesting and bring back the five or so people who were regular visitors here. It all starts now (again). And this time it’s going to be different.

Stop laughing there, at the back.


Writer’s Block Strikes Again!

Bang Head WallYou can’t see it coming. It just hits you when you least expect it to. It dominates everything that your mind comes up with, promptly labeling each idea as junk. It brings sleepless nights where you keep thinking of something to write about. But nothing ever seems to meet the seemingly high standards you’ve set for yourself.

Yes, it’s that niggling little thing that has cost many writers their sanity and a fistful of hair.The dreaded beast known as ‘Writer’s Block’.

As if me being a lazy sloth wasn’t enough, this annoying little thing keeps popping up every now and then, resulting in the awfully small number of posts I have on this blog. Since the past few days, I’ve had a few ideas, but none of them seemed to be up to scratch. So I finally decided that coming up with a post that seems to be totally absurd, useless and a waste of server space and bandwidth, is the way to overcome this situation.

Yes, it is a wacky idea and makes me look like a complete crackpot (the blog’s name is a dead giveaway). But heck, if it works I’ll be back in business in no time!

Whoa! I’m feeling better already! Now where’s that pencil? 😛
