When it comes to ‘J’, I only remember the word ‘Journals’.
There was a time when we used to write everything in our diaries. Especially, in our teenage. I remember clearly how much I loved to write in my diaries. My writings were on random concepts, just anything and everything, be it my daily routine to my views on various topics. Those were the days when people actually had enough time to maintain their journals or diaries. Nowadays, when technology has grown much further, those diary entries are replaced by blogs and phone notes.
But I still love writing in my diaries. Now even I cannot maintain my old habit of writing diaries regularly but whatever I do I always keep a diary near me. I love the smells of old paper and pens. Paper and pens have the most beautiful love-story between them. And I enjoy and nurture their love-story ahead.
I wrote the whole first draft of my debut book ‘Adhira’ in a diary. Yeah! The whole story. I really enjoyed that phase as I felt like I was going back to school days. I wish I could go back to the era where computers and this ‘tick-tock’ of keyboard was not mandatory for writing in our daily life, which nowadays has become a necessity.
This is it for now, enjoy your writing and I am going down the memory lane to find some diary memories of mine that I will share with you soon!
