Alright so this is in response to the Handwriting challenge by Jithin of PhoTrablogger .

Well we do live today in a world where the traditional handwriting has taken a backseat in favor of the typed Alphabet . But I have always been a conservative , when it comes to writing .

Although ,a few  of my poems have never seen a paper before they got published here on my blog , most of them have ! In fact all my short stories have been given birth by my loyal pen and have found their way in my diary …. ‘Penning down’ , is an important thing for me to express my thoughts and feelings ..

Whenever I write a story , I go with the flow of my thoughts..sometimes I have had to tear away pages of my diary if the work hasn’t been up to my satisfaction and sometimes they are filled with lots of scribbles , strikes and scribbles …And apart from the first few lines of my short story , the rest of it is one dirty mess …

So here is a picture I thought of finally putting up in response to this challenge , a page from my diary and the beginning of my new short story…although the final version may still end up with alterations. The story is still in the process of being written…But this can be a ‘Teaser’ of sorts ! (so much for my self promotion 😛 ) :

So when was the last time you wrote down something on paper …?

  1. I have never been a Fan of writing, so I am grateful for keypads :D. The only thing that sees the light of a pen are lecture jottings and poems (those too, the final pieces and at my own convenience 😉 ) . Writing down stories, haha, I doubt I’ll be able to do that. My fingers would be sore 😀

  2. You sound much like me in regards to your journal. My journal had to feel “perfect” to me and had me tearing out a lot of “imperfect” pages. I LOVED writing in my journal and did so for many years. I now favor the internet because I can hit the delete button and you can’t see the ripped edge inside my journal.

  4. It is so nice to know that you loving ‘penning down’ your thoughts… I love it too, though it isn’t any story or poem.. I just love writing whatever comes into my mind…some sort of journalling. More than that I love writing letters…yes, the classic, old-fashioned postal mails… 🙂

    • That is really nice to learn Vidya…In fact I too am fond of writing letters..though the last I wrote a letter was to my better half during our courtship period 😛 We have exchanged loads of them then since he too is fond of writing letters ! And all this while he was posted in far away inaccessible terrains…..
