Long Unplanned Writing Break (and a New Platform)
I had a rather long unplanned break from writing during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. No, fasting and the lack of food and water from dawn to dusk was not the reason behind the break, but rather, a mere lack of inspiration and motivation to come up with anything to put down into a decently sized string of words.
With Ramadan over, as well as the three-day holiday of Eid al-Fitr (literally translated as Celebration of the Feast) that marks the end of the month of fasting, it is time to try to keep this blog alive once again.
Another piece of news I would like to share is a new writing platform I recently joined.
While searching the net for a platform geared toward writers a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon Medium. And at first I merely followed some writers and publications that I found interesting, inspiring, and motivating.
Just today, I posted my first piece on the platform and decided to also try to write regularly there as well. (How regularly? I’m not even sure yet.)
And for any writers reading this post right now, you might want to give it a try as well.
