Five Places I Want to Visit

Note to my reader: This post is a part (#5) of ’30 Day Writing Challenge’ that I found on Pinterest. The challenge is a collection of simple writing prompts.

Just five ?! 😥 

1. Mussoorie, India

Mainly to meet one of my favourite authors, Ruskin Bond! ⭐

2. 221B Baker Street, London220px-Targa_holmes_museumObviously! If you don’t understand the obvious, reader, I’m not talking to you! 😡  And, NO I have not chosen this after the TV Series, it’s been chosen after the book. I have been a fan since WAAAAAAAYYYY before the new series came into existence. Humph! :/

3. Mattur village, Shimoga district, Karnataka, India

It is known for the usage of Sanskrit (probably the only place in India) for day-to-day communication. What will I do there, you ask? I have no clue! 😛

4. Bhutan

The only Carbon Negative country in the world. Seriously, I need a break from my surroundings! ^^’

5. Mendenhall Caves, Alaska, USA

Mendenhall.Ice.Caves.original.659

Oooh, these are one beautiful glaciers!

BTW, how do I get to know of all such places? I READ. A lot. :/

Well, you see…, here, I can do a section so popularly known these days as “Honourable Mentions”. But NO, the title asked me to just say five and I am just going to tell you the five. 😎 (Inside my head, that sentence sounds so smart and intelligent. *sigh* ^^’ )

Where do you wanna go, reader? Let me know. May be, we share similar interests…?  🙂

Love love!

I want to write.

              For a person who has, over time, become so inconsistent with her posts, that’s a very strong statement. But yes, that’s the truth – I want to write.

             Then why in the world am I not writing? That’s a good question. And here are a ‘series’ of answers.

May be I am procrastinating.
May be I don’t know what to write about.
May be I do have ideas, but apprehensive on what to write about.
May be I am just making excuses. (And I see nodding in agreement here)
And,
May be I am writing them down, but not feeling confident enough to click that ‘Publish’ button. “Why?” you ask? Its because I am way to critical about myself than anybody else, and I just don’t see anything near perfection, if not perfection itself, in my writing. This particular post itself, I am already apprehensive about completing and posting it. I just have to do it.
            A part of me likes to call this, this ‘thing’ I am facing the infamous “writer’s block”; while another part of me goes, “Oh pahleeaassse, save the drama” in derision. And I very well know all of you, again, agree with the other part.

          “So what is your point?” you ask. I..um…I…I want to write. That’s it. I want to write, but I am not able to get myself to do it, and yet I want to write. That’s all. And yes, I am writing, and I will write, and I WILL ‘Publish’ this.

There you go – Published! Hmph!
