Writing makes you tired, trying to write and never finding the time to do it makes you more tired still. Having to write, live, and work, when all you want to do is disappear in a book is about as much torture as you can fit in into a humdrum life.

I am dying for people and things to leave me alone, but I guess I should be careful what I wish for!

    Oh, Damyanti, will I ever get to my blog again?

    Of course you will, if you want to

  • Not finding the time to write is like not finding the time to exercise. After a while the body begins to scream for it and the agitation sets in. I feel cooped up and need to get out.

    Always be careful what you wish for. The universe is far more responsive than most people imagine.

    I’m so sorry you are so tired and you not finding time for everything , but I think it’s the life that almost everyone have nowadays.I nstead sometimes I complain, because I have so much time available for myself and it sounds like a oath, but it’s so difficult finding a balance for duties and pleasure and free time and family, but I know you are ready for another challenge , like a writer and don’t give up, also you have to bear an enormous fatigue and sometimes dreams come true.
    Take care
