It was one of those days where i had a frustrated look on my already dejected face. It was so tough to keep it to my self that i had to let it out of my system. Little did i notice that wifey dear was around.
Me : It is not happening…
Wife : What is not happening?? 😦
Me : Leave it. It is not a big thing. It is not something to be scared about. It is one of those things on which you can’t be of much help. This thing which is bothering me would be pretty trivial to you.
Wife : Stop this ambiguity!! It is trivial as long as you don’t share it. Now please spill the beans.
Me: Well, The thing is i have been wanting to go back to my blogging ways. But I never get to do it. I think my blogging days are done and dusted.
Wife: May be you are right. May be your days as a blogger are over. Or may be your are wrong. Your days as a blogger are far from over. May be all you need is a bit of inspiration. 🙂
Me : Well then, Inspire!!
Wife: I can give it a try. I will start with a plea. you have to shed this Hamlet wannabe nature of yours. You and your soliloquies, they are slowly getting to be real annoyance. I am being very mild here.
Wife: You could write about a lot of things. You could think of writing a techie article. You don’t need to use the creative side of the brain for that.
Me: Yea, But not my scene…
Wife : Oh! ok! Then you can write about mundane things that happen around you. Writing is a gift. It will slowly come back to you. All you need to do is to try. You could read a couple of your old posts and think of new ways of rewriting them. Just that you don’t have to rewrite them. They seem fine to me and any change to their current state would robe them of their simplicity and inane beauty. And you will notice that these things which you are mentioning to be missing coming back to you, just like it comes back in the stupid soccer movie which you are a fan of.
Me: Shaolin Soccer!! You really can’t leave that out, Can you ? 🙂
Wife : Hmmn.. I can’t, Can i ? Well the thing here is you can write about a lot of things. You can write about turning 30. You can write about you attempts to learn driving and how the entire universe prevents you from being successful at that endeavor. You can also write some fictional essays on how to be a successful manager by delegating all tasks. You can write about bringing up our kids as long as you mention them as sweet and adorable in every paragraph you write about them. If none of the above appeal to you, the least you can do is to note down our conversation and apply your blogging skills and convert it into a nice little blog. What do you say ?
Me: Inspiration , Thy name is woman!!!!
That’s how my first blog in a long time was originated. Sincere thanks for wifey dear for making this possible.
p.s. The kids are alright
