Limerick Challenge, Week 50 : Goals
Every time I fail, I’m close to not reaching my goal,
Tell me how many strikes will stop me, my dear soul?
Is it over for me,
Or do you not agree?
That we only get three chances to achieve our goal!
When you started your blog, did you set any goals? Have you achieved them? Have they changed at all?
I had no clue what blogging meant, I read one of my friend’s post , decided at once I want to join too. At that time I was learning what blogging was about. On the advice of a friend I did some translations. It was the first time I attempted such a task.
The comments from friends from the online course encouraged me . I continued to translate and wrote a few stories, and posts about different places in India, Pakistan and Australia. I still did not have a goal in my mind.
I decided to participate writing the prompts provided by WordPress, I enjoyed writing. I noticed my writing was more fluid as the days went by.
Lately I’m thinking of writing some short stories without prompts, I’m slightly confident of myself. This will be my goal, my success depends on my motivation. I have not achieved my goal yet. Nothing is changed right now.

I didn’t have any goals when I started blogging, perhaps there was one goal in my mind,what does it mean and how does it work. I have learned that part, who wouldn’t if you spend as long as I did.
In the beginning I wrote about different things, I did not have any plan what was the right thing to do. Then a friend suggested translating Tagore’s work, I do not consider myself an expert, but I was willing to try, the fact that it was my mother tongue it was helpful, I felt some of my online friends appreciated the writing of Tagore but could not understand because of the language. I solved the problem by my translation.
I have written about different cities in Bangladesh, I had to do some research, I didn’t visit all the places I only knew the names. This research was helpful to me as well.
At present I’m busy doing the writing and the daily prompt, some are interesting, it gives me an incentive to write.
