No sooner I decide to type in a few words, the power- cut invites itself over.
Perhaps it knows it too well exactly when to play a peek- a- boo. More than being Power supply, it acts like being power Less. Out of the 24 hours of the day, it keeps itself out of reach for close to 10 hours. For crying out loud Gurgaon is not a village; it actually happens to be the Millenium City!
While many of us try to fight the infamous Writer’s Block or the more pronounced forgetfulness of the correct vocabulary; like the uninvited guests, it calls upon us just when we would have been much better without it’s haunting presence.
The species of “yet to claim being” a Writer like I am now, are bogged down with some of the very basic issues than the larger, “more towards the intellectual” reasons. We tend to skip our meals or our favorite TV serial (criminal); sometimes even our sleep, which has its own hazardous health repercussions- to only type some words to claim upon our possession of literary skills.
How are we to know that that becomes the perfect time for the Devil to throw away its Prada wear and exclaim a moronius gasp on us?
That’s it- all we are left to do is to sit and brood- thinking of all the past sins that we may have committed to earn that “blank” time. Definition of Blank Time: All work concluded to carve out a couple of guilt free hours to beat the keys on the computer keyboard, exhibiting our command over the language and mark an attendance of our virtual presence to the entire world!
One of the weirdest observations that I have made ever since I have started to Blog- barring the first day when I had created this account is that the electricity zaps exactly when I may have written a couple of sentences, barely managing to give a shape to my scattered thoughts of certain shade.
What else then?
I smirk at the humor, flare my nostrils and roll my eye- balls over a bit. Not that it makes any damned difference, excepting for relaxing some of my facial muscles!
What do we have here..? The Demon just decided to show up. I see it grinning its evil smile. I can hear it say – “go girl, type some- before you once again sit heavy on your couch, calling one of the greatest invention of the man- kind the unmentionables..”
So here I go. Let me see if I can actually type some before it disappears once again..
Maybe it’s working OK now. I just got a new email about a new post from you and when I clicked on it it took me to the page just fine. It’s your post about “buttons”. So maybe all is well now. I have sometimes gone through some “bugs” of my own here on WP but they have resolved themselves without me having to call for help.
I’ll let you know if anything else acts funny in connection to your blog.
Love you… xoxo
Please do Dear One.. They better behave!!!
I mean how dare they savage my post links..? Last year when I had started to blog, it was really bad. Their system would go on upgrade every few days.. n I go up their email inbox pinging at them.. Now it’s much much better. Infact, anytime you come across those nasty ones crawling, letme know- I’ll tell you all the secrets n the bins where the solutions hide.. 🙂
I guess my coffee is relaxing me now. I was little upset while writing the Buttons post there- now feel much better after receiving warm ones from you.. 😀
I will always tell you if I see something funny going on. I’m glad I haven’t had much trouble posting or I would soon get frustrated!
I would love to know where the secrets are hidden if I should need them. Thanks!
Happy to hear you are relaxing now–me too.
Love and peace… xoxo
There’s been something fishy going on with your blog connection. Over the past few days when I receive an email saying you have a new post, when I click on it to come to the page–the blog says “Sorry the page cannot be found”. It no longer takes me to the posting. It happened today again. Something’s wrong here, Olivia. 😦
Just thought you would want to know if you didn’t already. xoxo
Ouch…. That hurt!
Could you please take the subscription off and re- do it? Gosh.. there’s something spooky going on in the cyber- space.. It didn’t auto- publish yesterday in FB. A huge email had to be shot to the support to get it re- instated..
Infact when I hit publish, it takes over 10 seconds to Publish as well.. Some bug crawling in WP as it does every few weeks!! Trust me the WP support guys hate me for the amount of alarms I ring on them.. 😛
I am not surprised since I noticed it took almost 20 seconds to “publish”!!!!!! say F*sh.. lolsss
Love you Loads xoxox
