NaNoWriMo – Coming Soon!


Hello there!

  • Is there a writer in you?
  • Have you ever felt you should try your hands on writing a novel/or any work, give it a shot and explore?
  • Or are you already a writer?
  • Does writing make you frantically happy?
  • Do you already have your next project lined out?

What is NaNoWriMo?
It is a non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to promote writing and creativity.

What is the Target and Timeline?
The writing begins from November 01 spanning for the entire month (ends Nov 30th midnight 11.59pm). One needs to tackle the writing goal of 50,000 words.

Yes, 50K. 50,000 is definitely a huge number but if seen as 1667 words per day, definitely doable. Weekends, constant support and motivation from NaNoWriMo and buddies, pep talks, lots of resource materials and daily writing sprints make this target exciting and easier.

However if you have your own target, there is also NaNoWriMo Rebel where one can set individual writing targets.

What can I Write?
Anything! Anything that makes you happy and you want to write. It’s not about the bothering and worries of editing and giving the final touch. It’s about writing and just it.

So, What Next?
Are your words ready to celebrate? Do you have a project? Hope in! Register at National Novel Writing Month.  It’s about cherishing that write-cravings and dedicating the month November to write, write and write more.

What after Registration?
Select the appropriate region from where you are writing, look out the regional forum for introduction and other threads, create a writing project, make some new buddies and get started! The writing officially begins from November 01.

Fungus on Bread


 

Amidst the sleeps, we put together some shits and call it ‘life’.

For those who are lucky enough to have a comfy bed, they warm it up, wrap it up and most probably even waste it all up.

Not able to sleep?
Insomnia? Internet connection? Love? Alarm? For a change can it be ‘Passion’ that does not allow to sleep?

The Hot, Lukewarm and Cold
While some are struggling with sleep issues, many others just don’t want to sleep. A 15 year old kid with 8+ years of programming experience is topping the world coding contest leader board while another engineering graduate is struggling to understand a sorting algorithm.

Lukewarm?
Yeah. That isn’t always the want. Some needs to be served while hot. Serving a lukewarm at cold-in-need isn’t good either. Who teaches all that?

None!
But most life things that pass the ‘hot’ stage are useless. The reality check demands for the button that one never comes easily.

The Periodic Departs
There is a part in us that is dying every day. ‘Play’ will die one day. ‘School is all I do’ will die one day (or dead). ‘College life’ dies another day (or already). ‘Work Life’ dies to retirement. Enthusiasm would die one day. Laziness? Never. Postponing things until the ultimate finale will die too.  The learner? That should never. There is not even a delta small difference between one who can read and doesn’t, and who cannot. As long as we are living, we got to let the unnecessary things and only that die.

Beauty and More, Deepity Deep
Unless, Unless, there is a dedicated time put to something, one can never see the beauty of it. Beauty is not at the outset. It’s not inner too. It’s very deep inside and reaching there takes great time. All prodigious things take time. They need dedication. They need commitment. They come with ‘I am sure you will never understand’ happiness.

Everything matters and that said, nothing matters too. It’s all dependent on where we decide to give time. What’s the use of inspiration when the journey is already made? Sure there is way ahead but why was it not through the way already traversed? When you hear from your dear one telling ‘It’s okay’, smile and say to yourself that ‘It Isn’t. One got to come back real and big. Let’s agree and accept the fact that mediocre isn’t good. No. Not valued.

 

Class

“Life is a learning space”

The Timely Dreams
Dreams come in various forms. There will be a stage in life where nothing seems impossible. That is why the school autograph books are so special. The constraints come in and reality takes a bite. Right or not, we settle. Settle for less. Pick the obvious and let go the specials. Against all the odds, no, there aren’t any odds. We just create them. When we need someone to blame, we pick and create the odds. Dreams are meant to get bigger with time. They are bound to get crushed. They might get crushed only to grow further bigger.

The Tale, Classic
Opportunities’ is a timeless classic tale. We got to make our life stories special through them. It does not matter how others see it. If it was well utilized, it’s going to bring the showers one day. When they are at hands reach, hands must be full. And oh, there are hundreds available and a patiently explore can color the grey.

Deeper than ‘Deep Down’



Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

Note:  
‘I’ here is not ‘I’ like it actually means. It’s more of every kind of ‘I’, if you know what I mean. A very abstract metaphor. It could be a person, bird, bag, rain etc. Anything. Just anything. I am not talking of anything here that is way direct and easily understandable. I prefer to say that it is generalization of several contexts.

I see things that actually I don’t intend to. So does the words. I am not aware of the context so I decide not to come up with any conclusions. I am still happy. Because hey, there are always reasons to celebrate. You restore that in me.

I sleep at times with leaking thoughts (okay, I am full). I need arms that wrap me around to comfort. Those arms that would mean more than anything else in the world and beyond every material comforts. A hug that would be as soothing as a heart connecting lyrics. But it’s imaginary because currently you are beyond physical reach. You are not very far. But far enough from the expectations.

I have desires. They are not infinite or beyond. They are small and reachable. Yet they seem to move far. I want to blame you. I almost want to. I don’t know what stops me. I stop. I know it’s not evil to have small desires.

you-quote

Sometimes I take bath singing fun songs. That I do because at times bath goes too much of sob and cry. The running tap water saves me from a bunch of things.  Bath is also sometimes a quick negligible routine. You don’t have any role here. I still bring you up and complain/compliment.

I have worries and I have been workaholic. I feel work eats up my worry. It does not happen so. Rather it makes work tedious and worry-some.  I think of you and pretend to assure myself everything is alright.

There is this crowd and the crowd is so complex that it has no representation. But that crowd does not make any sense to me. There is this one tiny thing in that complex and that is all matters. For no reason, in that tiny thing, you are there.

No one heard me cry. No one would understand what I am going through. And it is very basic that no one needs to understand that. It’s not necessary. It’s integral part of me and I decide the flow. I put pretty faces and pace and what not. I tell you everything is beautiful. You smile and say things are beautiful because of you. I don’t want to but I accept. As a matter of fact, I don’t have any argument or proof to come to any conclusion. I decide to agree on certain things with no basis.

I want to be in a zone where there is loud music, woofer and beats that mask every pain. Then I want to forget everything and sing my own song, my own lyrics. I don’t know what role you have there. Just be there.

I don’t know what it takes,
I don’t know how,
I don’t know where it leads,
I don’t know when,
I don’t know what I don’t know,
But I know you and,
You are there.

I very much know that, that ‘You’ is part in me. A part from me. A better version of me that keeps me going ahead. Thank ‘you’. You are doing an incredible job out there.
