I had no idea i would reach up to here since i was pretty unsure to continue with this blog!
It amazed me yesterday when i got the notification on publishing the 100th post on Phonic Words!
I used to read a lot in my school days, specifically, i read a lot during 6th to 9th standard. My reading interest had been started with reading Vedic culture, Philosophy on Indian epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata, Bhagavad Gita, Fiction – Non-fiction, Poetry and reading newspaper inculcated curiosity in me and that curiosity led me to read stuff on almost all subjects. And still, that interest is intact. 🙂 While reading voraciously i had never got a single thought to write something!
It was my father’s diary inspired me to try writing! One day my father gave me his diary in which he had written about his day to day activities so precisely, some philosophy and poetry for my mother 😉 That inspired me that writing is an interesting thing, try it.
Being a voracious reader and nature lover, i started writing poems in my diary. I took part in essay writing competitions and won several prizes. I wrote extracurricular examinations and got certificates. I took part in drawing competitions and got certificates and prize. Basically, this habit of writing and reading had shaped me a versatile person and this habit is the credit getter. Reading and writing play an important role in anyone’s life for the overall development. Reading infuses curiosity and knowledge. Writing sharpens analytical thinking.
I enjoyed my journey of voracious reading and writing till 10th standard. After that, i studied science….i think it’s enough to say here….haha…. 😉
The journey begins:
I used to scribble on Medium and Blogger on some random topics or office meetings speeches. An idea to start a blog took a long time to cross my mind! When i started Phonic Words, my blogging journey here on WordPress i had no idea what all i am going to do here with absolutely no idea of how to set up a blog!
I had started this blog with pretty good enthusiasm but after sometime i got frustrated with it and i had decided to quit! Even i had quit it though i love writing! Finally, my friends and wellwishers who are used to get posts from Phonic Words pushed me to start it again.
I resumed but with obscurity. i used to write quality stuff in my school days and to bring back that habit again is pretty brainstorming task particularly when you are occupied with other tasks too! Isn’t it! I wrote some poems and posted it on another blog just to get the feedback on how are they! (They are yet to appear on Phonic Words). Yeah, readers started liking them! 🙂 and i gained the confidence and an interest to keep writing on 🙂
So after this entire exercise, I learned a few lessons which i would like to congregate here.
- Don’t doubt
- Write what you feel, think, imagine and observe
- Writing is your creativity don’t kill it
- Don’t quit just keep writing
Thought on 100:
I would like to thank my readers and well-wishers for support and reading my Phonic Words without whom this isn’t possible to continue with this journey. I have got an amazing community here on WordPress where like-minded people are supporting each other, the wonderful source to learn something new every day.
Well, 100 posts are not a big achievement although thought to make a note of it!
When you think you have written enough!
Keep writing more”
With Love and Thanks!
