Last Day of Writing 101

Writing 101 has ended. And, yes, I’m partly prepared for the sudden drop in post engagement that is bound to follow.

But, as I wrap up the assignments from this course, I want to highlight some of the things I gained through it.

First and foremost, I shed my writing block. And it feels like the best thing ever. Writing 101 forced me to think about things I gave up on thinking about. I almost gave up on writing, and that’s when this course started. It just proves that everything happens for a reason. It made me take a step back and take a deep breath. It helped me take a break from the crippling jail I was putting myself in.

Secondly, I met amazing people, like Arpita at Scribbles@Arpita and Rosema from A Reading Writer. Arpita, I don’t know if you’ve visited my site recently, but I’ve been thinking of a theme shift since I set eyes on your blog. Turns out, Lovecraft does my header image more justice than Hemingway Rewritten.

Last but not the least, I rediscovered myself. It helped a lot, to relax and actually get the muscles working afterwards instead worrying about the pain moving it would bring. I enjoyed it a lot, because it challenged me to walk paths I was afraid of taking, and I realised there really isn’t a reason I should’ve been afraid of them in the first place!

When I close my eyes, I see myself as a writer. I see a pale blank page in front of me and feel a solid pen in my hand. I feel inspiration flowing through me, hear the words being whispered in my ears, ready to be written. And I see myself writing them. So, I write. And that is why I am here right now. To let the world know that I want to become better at this. That there is this unbelievably naive living in this corner of the world, who wants to have people help her become the best she can become. My focus is actually on fiction. I dream up stories in my sleep, literally. And I can't help but want to write them. Knowing English only as a second language is a drawback, though. I still try.
