My 2014 - Inderpreet Kaur Uppal
Reflecting and reminiscing about the year gone; peeping into the highs & lows. Trying to learn and grow. The past year has been very different in so many ways & similar too. Devika urged us to write a reflection post for her and I wondered how would I fit into the glittering line up of authors gracing her blog with their stellar posts and ready wit and heady romance?
As I gathered my courage to look back, to remember and to reflect and to look ahead realising that my writing to had improved, my horizons limitless as I was too learning and growing with the stellar company I kept.
The year has moved on and what a year it has been. I rubbed shoulders with star bloggers, gifted writers and ace authors! This was the year I took the plunge for serious blogging, joining in and seeing most of it through to the end. When I began serious blogging I had never thought I would be interacting with celebrities! Neither had I thought that they would be motivating me to do my best and try to do better.
I dabbled in a few different areas within blogging. I tried my hand at fiction, personal experiences, poetry, stories, articles, book reviews and even blog challenges! What a thrill it was; undertaking a challenge and seeing it through. Praise and support form accomplished authors & world-class bloggers; reading their words has me motivated me to expect more from my writing, I am not an author but all this writing has me dreaming that maybe I will. Never say never!!
I learnt to channel my love of books and became a serious book reviewer and yet I am still struggling to find the perfect balance to help me read all the books I have with me. Even my most favourite author has been languishing on the book shelf waiting for his turn! Tsk, tsk!
Striking a balance with my writing, reading and family has been tough but I learnt to balance and to share. I might want to read the whole day but I know now that writing is equally important, feedback is the nectar that nurtures more writing – from me and my favourite authors.
What I take from this past year is to never be afraid, ask questions and to follow my heart. Just to keep writing and love what I am doing. Hope to see a lot more of you at Eloquent Articulation!
I wish you all a year filled with dreams, hopes, confidence, support and success with sparkle and shine.
Thanks Devika, it was a pleasure to reflect and see how far I have come.
Hugs and cheers!
Happy New Year!!
