Oh My God!
I cannot believe the fact that OUR BLOG has 100 posts published!
This is one feeling I have been trying to sync in for the past week now. Girl at the Window Seat started its journey as Girl Explorador – and since then I have used this medium to pour my feelings out.
The idea of the blog came into existence post a mandatory college assignment. The blog must have 5 compulsory write-ups published by a certain deadline. Once I had to decide the name of the blog, the niche, and design the blog – minutes into the process I knew this is not going to be a one-time thing. This is not just an assignment for me.
I started writing my blogs, published the assignments – which were my fond travel memories, and gave words to my love for travel.
The journey of writing was never planned but destined. If anyone called me a writer or asked me if I could write – my constant mood was “not again!”
I do not understand was it the inbuilt writer’s procrastination or my irritating habit to ignore the bliss of life that made me do that. I often ran from the “write” tag. Now that I think of the reason, it was solely because I never had to put effort into writing. Words followed my thoughts and it gets printed on paper. Not that I am “a wonderful writer” no, definitely in the process, but not too soon.
But when I sat down to write, I had my imagination flowing, which, in my defiance, was a natural process for everyone. I thought that is how the world does it. Little did I ever know I was destined to be a writer, and that I would ever fall in love with the process.
A very good example is this very blog post – I have been procrastinating and decided to write this post past two days. Well, today, I had time to myself, sitting in my office on a Saturday afternoon. The one thing I had on my agenda as a standby Producer and Writer was to finish a script. Post that I watched some videos on YouTube, and while watching, I thought, I have to post a blog, should I? Well, one video won’t be an issue. And out of nowhere in that thought process, I opened a tab, which led me to the blogger draft page, and here it is – Aanya Jain published the 100th Blog Post on her blog!
Cheers to more writing, more procrastination – and to more experiences!
