Writing blog is such a relaxing and pleasurable act which I realized after I started writing. This is addictive too. I try to find sometime everywhere to write something. The problem is many thoughts come to my mind throughout a day but I can remember some of it while I am in a state to write blog.
Me and my blogs have become a matter of joke among my friends. One such joke was that I will write blog while doing performance appraisal for the year.
Writing is not new for me. I used to write poetries in Odia during my college days, But unlike blogs, I used to scrap them after writing because I was not interested in them after writing. The purpose was writing not reading them. Many of my friends liked some of them and one of my close friend preserved few of it. Not sure if those are still there with him or not.
Again after several years of gap I felt it is time to shape my thoughts in words. Irrespective of whether it is appreciated by others or not. At least I appreciated my thoughts, that was my satisfaction.
Shaping thoughts in words is easier in poetry than in prose because in poetry reader is expected to add some more thought to it but in prose you have to direct the reader on what to think. But the difficulty part in poetry is to have great command over the language. Although in prose you are expected to have command over language too but even if you are not very good at it, reader may understand it but in poetry it is impossible to understand.
Lack of easy software to write Odia and not very good command over English made me stop writing poetries and shift to blogging. But I have no regrets for that. I am enjoying as much as I used to enjoy writing poetries. Incomplete, unbaked, unsolved thoughts are seeing their end point through blogs.
