I did not think it would come to anybody’s notice how infrequent my posts have become. Surprisingly, I have had a few wonderful people reach out to me, inquiring if I’ve been well. I couldn’t be more thankful for this warm, welcoming blogging community for treating me as if I were family. It would be wrong of me to not give you a reason for my absence. Hence, this post.
To focus on my university entrance exams , I had temporarily stopped writing till September. September was a roller coaster ride for me, filled with both surprises and major disappointments. But throughout the time, ideas for posts kept popping in my head. I couldn’t hold back the excitement for my exams to get over so that I could continue writing full-time.
But when it all got over, I felt empty. I let self-demeaning thoughts creep in and doubted my writing capability. My motivation to write hit an all-time low. I realised I needed to give myself time to get out of whatever I’d gotten myself into and so decided not to post anything at all, until that spark to write came back.
It’s been 20 days since my last exam and I feel like I’m getting my spark back. I truly apologise to all of you who have wondered where I’ve been and give an apology in advance if my posts become scattered again in the near future.
