Last night I was in a bad mood like literally bad mood and all I wanted to do was stay in my room and sulk all day long. Sometimes when I get to this point where my mind and heart decide there is no point pretending “Am Awesome”, I go in to hibernation and avoid human interaction.
So I woke up, made myself some breakfast and fell in front of television. Everyone at my place had gone somewhere, my brother was at college and my parents had gone to city. I watched Air Crash Investigation, some News and then decided I needed coffee. While I was making coffee for myself I came up with an idea. I took my cup of coffee to living room, sat on the floor with my laptop on the tiny coffee table and I began writing. I worked on Dominique all day, while taking break in between. I didn’t write much, just few pages, but it felt good because I was doing something I like.
My Saturday was spent writing a story that will never get published or even get read by my friends and of course I watched “Not without my daughter” movie. Truth be told, I’m glad I read the book first. Movies are always lame when compared to the books, because it misses so much. And of course facts are twisted here and there for the convenience of shooting.
I wanted to do some more writing tomorrow but probably I will be out all day with my friend. I wish I could avoid doing it but I can’t.
There is this writing contest http://www.nanowrimo.org/en and I want to be a part of it, it’s more of a challenge where even if you do not complete the task you end up being happy about doing something constructive. But I’m afraid it would mean some amount of dedication every day. If you participate, you have to write a story of 50,000 or more words by the end of November month. One month to write a novel, if you do the maths it means lost of writing everyday starting from 1st November to the last day of the month. I can do that but do I have the dedication, stamina and time? I’m already sleep-deprived and crazy every day.
I also plan to join guitar classes, read few pages every day, blog every day, start my daily workout and all this while spending 9 hours in Gotham doing work I don’t like. How do I fit in time to work on a one month novel? But man if I did end up doing (I don’t care if I win) it would be so awesome. Creating something within a time-frame. So cool. Oh I forgot I also have my stupid assignments that I haven’t touched. O man! Why didn’t someone hit me on head when I was registering for it?
Anyhow, I’m happy write now because despite being in my hibernation mode of “I don’t want to talk, I don’t want to go out and I want to sulk all day long”…I did something nice. I did not waste my day. A cup of coffee and music can do wonders sometimes.
You know all you need is love, but sometimes you have to manage with headphones and some songs…!!!!
