I mean I was able to blog daily for a whole week again. Hooray for me!
Truth be told, I don't feel that I'm the one doing it. I feel that I'm only the typist. The title or the first sentence will come to me out of nowhere. Then when I sit down and type, the next words will just flow as natural as water gushing from an opened faucet.
Most of the time, I don't know where it will bring me. Even if I have a draft in my head, it winds down to a different path. I, myself am amazed at the finished article.
I guess, this is what it feels to be inspired.
Paolo Coelho said in his book 'The Zahir' that when the writer's in the zone, a stream of ideas and words effuses that he could not stop typing for hours, even days. I heard even Stephenie Meyer of 'Twilight' articulated that she just had to write the story in her head.
I'm far from these two famous writers. I am just in awe that I'm actually experiencing the same thing.
Yesterday, I was reading through some of the older posts and I honestly didn't feel that I wrote it. Though the interviews and experiences were very real to me, I could not claim ownership to how the story unfolded.
I have to confess that I am beginning to fall in love with being a typist.
I'll be going on a break for one whole week a day after tomorrow though. I am most willing to continue this love affair but I'm not sure if my internet connection will work where I am going.
It's been a beautiful continuous two week run. I will definitely keep on writing wherever I am.
P.S. If there's anyone reading this blog, thank you for spending time with the ideas and stories here. I hope it helps you and I would really love to hear from you. Will keep you posted as soon as I can.
