A new start

Author Tim Wynne Jones considers writers to be like crows, much like crows, writers like to steal shiny bits of the world and hoard them away in their nest.

For a writer, his story is his nest.

I’m not sure what went wrong but life was moving so fast that I found it really hard to keep pace with it.

In all these months when I was not writing, I was busy observing.

A lot has been changed in my surrounding and we’re finally here in our newly constructed home.

Away from city, this society was originally a mango orchard. There are still lots of mango trees here and these mango trees are home to birds.

Some of these are rare birds.

In city, I never saw them but here I can see lots of starlings.

Starlings are noisy birds.

Bully birds is a most common name for them.

Last month, I completed my training and started conducting after school Maths and English classes from my home.

Few months back, my niece and nephew moved with us, they’re here for their higher studies.

Apart from noisy starlings, there’s no noise of cars here but in my home in the presence of my niece and nephew, there’s lot going on.

Waking them up for school is a hectic work but a fun job that I’m enjoying doing.

Life is busy but it has never been so kind before and while I’m guilty of not writing, I’m more happy for the start of this new year.

I’m grateful for all this beauty in my life.

  1. I like this line – “I was not writing, I was busy observing”

    Life at times makes it inevitable taking breaks. Good to see you back writing. I hope to do better writing in 2020, just like old times.:-)

    I see that the same surrounding picture in a different angle posted in the next post. πŸ™‚

  2. I love that.. Writers are like crows.. As an amateur writer, I’m always finding inspiration in the world around me.. I’ll meet people that look like the perfect protagonist I’ve been trying to craft, or see something happening that would fit nicely into a story I’m developing. πŸ˜πŸŽ‰
