The ones who never saw the light of the day...

I am generally pretty indecisive as a person.
It takes me eons to decide on the most trivial of things.
And I have not been able to zero in on a blog.
There have been quite a lot which were in my mind as nascent ideas. But I never summoned to zeal to give shape to them as words. The drafts of the wannabe blogs buzzed in my head during long train journeys or when I brushed my teeth or worst of all, while I read the newspaper.
But some how I never managed to put them in black and white.
Either I was hard pressed for time, or I found the ideas too mundane to claim space in my blogosphere, or they just skimmed into a nebulous form when I attempted to give shape to them.
But there were a few lucky once who passed through the initial draft. But then when I got to read them, my very first response would be "NAYYYYYYYYYYYYY".

Many a times I did attempt to add another line here, edit a paragraph there – but the results lacked sheen. So I gave up further attempts at improvisation.

So this blog goes out to all those who did not make it. :-(

* Auto Mode

* Been there Lived there

* Horror And I

* Profundities

* Scent of a Moment

* Summer of 03

Hope some day I have some postings with these titles.

Till then, rest in peace. :-|

I totally understand what you mean. Sometimes there is a very brilliant idea in my mind and then I slack off on putting it down on the paper and then I totally forget what it was about or I loose direction.
The key is to put the things down on paper right there and then. Just grab a paper and make an outline... it will help.
By the way, I am sure your writings cant be that bad.We always tend to underestimate ourselves. Please post the posts with the titles you mentioned.
I, for one, would love to read those.
