Writing has been a passion for me, though I am sometimes too lazy to put pen to paper. Of late, this laziness has reached its pinnacle. And, that’s when I came across A – Z challenge on BlogChatter via my blogger friend Aesha’s musings.
It couldn’t come at a more opportune time. I will tell you the reason why. I am standing at the threshold of a new decade – 40s. As much as it is exciting, it is full of apprehensions too. I am moving further away from my insolent teenage years and my gay youth and entering into unchartered territory. What will the 40s bring in for me? Midlife crisis, loss of my youthful looks, or fame and recognition (well, I have always wanted to be a writer! May be this is the decade when I finally do it!)
I often flit between what was and what would be!
A past that is done with not necessarily and I still hanker after it. I still wonder ‘what if’! It influences my thoughts and my present decisions.
A future that is looming large on the horizon with every passing day. A future that is still a mystery. What will happen to me as a woman, a wife, a mother and a daughter?
And, in this conflict of a past gone by and a future knocking at the door – I am stuck. How do I change my today to affect my future? Why do I constantly think of tomorrow that is ruining my today?
I have a lot to think, rethink and un-think. It’s a daunting task. Hopefully, this one-month A – Z blogging challenge will help me sort it out.
And thus I choose my theme for the April A To Z Challenge 2018
Yesterday Today and Tomorrow
I am looking forward to taking up the challenge as I think it will help me find a lot of answers.
Join me on April 1, 2018 as a friend, adviser, mentor and critic.
Pssst… it’s fiction with some elements from my real life woven in!!
