Cheers to a new beginning!!!

Though I wrote good compositions in school, I never was interested in writing. I focused more on reading academic books and did a good job in elocutions and debates. You might wonder as to how I got good grades? I used to always learn by heart. I know that’s the worst way of learning but then I was taught that way so couldn’t help much. I always was fascinated by news readers when I was young, so I always read my academic books aloud to ape them. I am good at reading and even my vocabulary is good but then I never put them into writing, so that’s where my “Achilles heel” lies.

I have friends who churn out excellent articles and I am in a way jealous too. I too want to be like them. I got a familiarity feeling whenever I looked at the vocabulary used by my friends in their writings. It is as if things look closer than they appear. Whenever I tried to write I was always discouraged by my friends and family members saying that at my age one should write crisp articles .But then there had to be a beginning and it became the end to all my writing stints. I was very much hurt and felt ashamed to even show them what I wrote. Writing one good article would take me hours. I even tried to maintain a personal diary. One day my brother got hold of it and read all its contents aloud. I was so embarrassed that I immediately stopped writing. I even wrote poems but never got inspiration or encouragement. I really wanted somebody who could boost up my spirits so that I could write better. This went on for many years and now I feel as if I have forgotten to write. This made me accept the fact that I am a bad writer and writing is not my cup of tea.

Whenever someone asked me to write I always got intimidated. Whenever I tried to showcase my writing skills my friends’ discouraged saying writing was not my cup of tea. But I believe that writing is the best way to communicate. It is more concrete and sometimes it is the only mode of communication. I always worked hard to be on a platform shared by my peers and wouldn’t want to stay behind just because I can’t write properly. I won’t be disheartened if you laugh at my blog entry. I would appreciate if you leave your comments and advices. After all, I am a human being and I tend to make mistakes. I believe Failure as the stepping stone of success, so please help me out so that I can also be a successful writer like you all and weave out wonderful articles.
