Inertia (n): A tendency to do nothing or to remain unchanged
I missed this place.
It’s been a long, long gap and I hadn’t planned for or wanted any of it.
Inertia as I remember it was (still is) the tendency to resist motion, change and hence whenever I thought of returning, thought of writing all I could manage was the thought, nothing more.
It pulls you, makes you stagnant. Any and everything you manage seems futile, worthless. The fact, though I think remains that once you’ve managed the force, the momentum for a considerable duration, it ceases to function, begins to give in.
I missed this place; though I did not quit writing, adopted another place: “Wattpad”.
I wrote (still am, more correctly, I started with) a fictional series, titled ‘The Infected’. Well, if death and apocalypse is your thing, you might find it fun.
These past few months were tough, with me not doing so well physically.
I think, a lot. Sometimes I obsess.
Like most of the human population; failure upsets me, it sets my mind in motion.
Discipline, or rather the lack of it was what my brain diagnosed as my problem.
To get myself disciplined I had decided to challenge myself. The challenge was simple enough: manage to write something for the blog, each day for thirty days. Along with it were other tasks, other tasks required for accomplishment of other targets. It seemed like a brilliant plan, only it never made past the drawing board.
Well, I still do think that was a correct diagnosis, I still do think the exercise might help and I can and am hoping this time it will make past the drawing board.
Because once you’ve managed the force, the momentum for a considerable duration, inertia ceases to function, begins to give in.
