The Note Resurrected

This attempt at explaining my disappearance from this blog should’ve appeared much earlier. The only reason it didn’t is that I kept thinking I’ll be back soon. ‘Soon’ has now been quite a few weeks.

I’ve kept away, for the major part, due to the excitement of a new venture that I’ve partnered with a friend on. No stress there, but it’s just that constantly thinking of new ideas and things to do has put most other things off focus. Having said that, for the first few weeks of not writing on this blog (since it started an year back), I was not worked up over not writing. That was never the case before – I’d be irritable if I didn’t average a post a week. DyingNote was an important part of my life – it gave me something to look forward to. Since my continued absence from it didn’t bother me, I thought “ah, well! It was nice while it lasted but it looks like I’ve moved on”. But that restless gnawing at not writing has returned in the last 2 weeks. And it has been intensified by quite a few regular readers calling or messaging me to get back to it – I appreciate that, really do.

What this absence has also done is to keep me off reading posts of my fellow bloggers. That I truly regret because these people always have more interesting to write than I do. All I can say to them is that I have a lot of catching up to do…and I will 🙂

And so…I’m back! I’m home, and the doors are open for you all to come right back in 🙂

    Nice to have you back. I’m keeping a lower blog profile myself these days due to other work and a lot less time so I completely understand. Much to see out there…

      Thanks Elliot. But I see you’ve still been quite active, which is good because I enjoy your writing. I have a lot of catching up to do, and not just on your blog.

      After I got back to it, the first feeling I had was of simple, pure happiness followed immediately by that why-didn’t-I-do-this-earlier feeling 🙂 Anyway, in the words of Samwise Gamgee, ‘Well, I’m back’

        I have kept mine going, but with less posts, and a small break (which was also nice).

          Just curious, and you don’t have to respond – Does your work involve writing?

          I’ve spent most of my professional life analysing data but I’m now on something quite different – something that’s been on the back of my mind for quite a while. My business partner and I write/design for our line of t shirts – should be launching early next month. It’s fun and it’s such a shame to call it work 🙂

    Good to have you back! I think you just have to go with the flow. Sometimes you don’t feel in the mood, other times the ideas flood in. It’s not obligatory, but it is fulfilling, I find.
