Theme Revelation !

I have no theme to reveal today ... 

I am just a newbie, I do blog (past 52 days) but not sure if I can call myself  'A Blogger'.

Why the hell did I sign up??

I saw this challenge was taken very seriously in the blog world. I read about how this challenge had brought a change in a blogger's life. So many bloggers wrote about the positive effect it has had, like making new friends, increasing followers, page views, getting noticed globally, personal time management... list goes on.

So yes, after witnessing this  kind of infectious energy it's difficult to just let it pass by.

I enrolled myself for the legendary AtoZchallenge.

Now I start thinking what should I write about ?

I have to give it my best shot else I will be lost in this ocean of brilliant bloggers.

I write down a few fiction plots, that I think are interesting. 

Immediately I  scratch out two plots, because I can't write 26 posts about it.

I dump another plot, because it might not be that interesting after all.

The next plot seems so repetitive to me, so obviously my readers will get bored or might happen that I have no readers if I choose this one.

Next one seems so silly, that it already makes me feel Dumb.

I am now left with just the last plot on the list.

I am happy that I have found the  final winner. 

The minute you succumb to outside pressure, you cease to be creative.

Just because it's the most logical thing to do, I cannot write something that I am not really passionate about, with these thoughts in my mind, I cross out my last fiction plot.

So have I given up on the challenge??

NO, I think the right thing for me to do right now, is to write about my life.

After all, the best stories are those which we don't tell anyone.

Truth is always stranger than Fiction !

At a verge of starting a new life and I decide to remember my past for one last time and write about it and let it all go. We all come with an emotional baggage, it's time for me to let go of mine or at least try.

A lot of people assume that women of a certain age who are not unattractive have no excuse for not having a perfect life. But you can have emotional baggage that is dragging you down like cement blocks tied to your feet.

It's time to free my feet !

  42. No worries, Ananya, I'll lend you my chisel. I found a LOT of support last year (my first) from the hosts, co-hosts and rank and file. And not just during the challenge. We've traded visits here and there ever since. Looking forward to getting to know your better. C'mon April! :O)

  43. Ananya, kudos to you for your spirit! I am certain the next month will be more for you and you have hoped for. Perhaps this will become the catharsis you needed.

  44. The best stories to tell are from ones life.. i am doing too..:) Nice to have someoen with me doing the same.. will be hopping here a lot... :)

  45. Since you're new to blogging, writing about your life is an excellent way to attack the Challenge. Since A to Z is about honing writing/blogging skills and building relationships with other bloggers, writing about your life will cover both realms. Keep posts relatively short (300-500 words is best) and leave comments on other blogs and you should cultivate a decent following.

    Good luck!

  47. LOVE it, Ananya! Congratulations on joining the A-to-Z and the reveal 'fest, but more than anything for having the guts to take on your own life as a subject. Yes, I agree with Lee--this is the best way to start, and I'm sure you'll be very successful. Welcome to the wonderful blogosphere, Ananya! No warmer people anywhere :)

    P.S. -- thanks for your super sweet comment on Quiet Laughter: The Mighty Theme Reveal yesterday--it made my day :)

  50. Write what you know! An excellent decision. I think personal stories are more interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Yes, the best stories are the ones untold. The ones that we hide from ourselves - not others!

  53. I agree that some of the best stories come from real life, some of them even unbelievable. I've chosen to have no theme. Or you might say the theme I Random >:)
