Putting the personal back into writing

Life’s strange. On one side, I’ve been fortunate to have projects flowing in, while, on the other, the personal observations have had to be kept at bay. 


Ever since I quit working in an office and went independent, productivity has been a roller-coaster.

Some days, I’d be on top of the game, wrapping things up super-quick. Then, there’d be spells where i’d be digging a hole in wet sand, working without any sight of success for weeks on end. Plus, the amount of distractions that come my way are unbelievable.

For example, as I type this, the two ladies of my life are trying to hold parallel conversations with me. Which, for the flow-writer in me, means that work is highly interrupted and eventually, I lose the multi-tasking battle. Resuming a project consumes twice the amount of effort and time, so, in the toss-up between professional deadlines and personal writing goals, it is the latter that ends up taking a back-seat.

Hope dwells though, for there’s a plan brewing. Starting this weekend, I’ve drawn up a chart that has me writing when everyone’s asleep. If this goes well, then there’ll be more experiences getting documented here in a month or so. Let’s see.

For now, there’s a post that’s waiting to be completed and that’s where I’m going to be, till I wrap it up.

    Was wonderful to see your blog drop in to the mailbox man. Also, pleasantly surprised that you’ve gone independent (and rid of the horrible daily commute in the process :D). Hope your new plan runs its course and helps those Ladakh/Spiti drafts go live. Will ping you over IM soon.

    Keep writing!


    1. Thanks for stopping by with those kind words bro 🙂
      Been working for far too long in the drafts and finally decided to break out. We’ll know how things flow.
      Cheers 🙂
