A new beginning…



images-24It’s already more than a year since her latest achievement!

No new publication! She can’t take this anymore!

She has been dealing with it lightly, thinking it was a procrastination phase, which would get over soon, but it actually seemed to be the fear of performing below her benchmark or losing her popularity gained till date…

Has she been doing this for others or herself?

NO…no…she remembered her favorite author’s words, ‘don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say.’

images-16She decisively got up, walked with a stance, reached her favorite place and started writing….

Inspired by the quote of Barbara Kingsolver-

Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer.

– Barbara Kingsolver


PS- This previous post of mine seems apt to motivate me during my phase of writer’s block.
