Daily Prompt: Brainwave

What’s the better idea you’ve ever had? Regale us every detail of the idea_ the idea itself,where it came to you, and the problem it solved.

The best idea I ever had was when my friend Robert started blogging, and I wanted to find out what blogging was and could I try it as well. I asked my good friend, he encouraged me and said, he was thinking of telling me to pick up the craft of blogging.

In the beginning there were a few roadblocks I had to deal with. For instance what can I write about, another friend stepped in and suggested it would be a neat idea if I translated Tagore’s poems. I was thrilled but had to tread cautiously. Yes I knew the language as it happened to be my mother tongue, there was a ‘but’ factor lingering in my brain.

Was I capable of taking a risk like that. I did not admit I was scared, at heart I was. This task was not easy, I had no experience translating.

I started with a short one and slowly I was feeling confident. I translated several poems and my friend encouraged me all along.

From time to time I found other things to do. I discovered the every day daily post. I read the prompts and began to write.

From prompts I went to five sentence fiction writing. Each week we were given a one word prompt, we were expected to write a story based on the prompt.I wrote stories for a while. It was discontinued.

I looked for other things to do. I joined the 101 writing course offered by WordPress. It lasted for four weeks. I loved it, I was able to keep myself busy.

The recent poetry course offered by WordPress was one I loved the most. I loved to read, recite memorize poetry, I did not have the experience of writing it.

I’m glad I joined blogging , I’m gaining experience writing things I haven’t done before.

…………………………….. 🙂

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this post with us. You know…you’ve already accomplished so much with writing, with blogging.

    Reading this post brings to mind the journey you’ve already taken, and you’re actually still on the journey! Think about it, though…you are an accomplished writer/blogger. You can write about absolutely anything you wish :-).

    All good wishes,

    robert

    • Dear Robert,
      Thank you. I finished reading a book a couple of days ago. It’s a novel titled: “A poet of the Invisible World” written by Michael Golding. In it the main character’s never ending journey, reminded me things are not easy to accomplish you have to give your heart and soul to accomplish something you dearly love. Michael’s character did just that. There were a lot of twists and turns, but his faith carried him through. 🙂
