In an attempt at getting my writing mojo back in action, I've decided to take a look back on some random old posts of mine, with the hope of finding that lost spark.

I have to say, it was quite interesting. A lot of the time I would be like: "I wrote that?!" or "What was going on when I wrote that?" And to be frank, and if I dare say so myself, I was impressed with a lot of the things I had written.
I also went back and read some of your old comments. Your comments are really important and are a great source of motivation that pushes me to do something about writing again, because part of why I do this is to get feedback from readers, so...

Something tells me I could use this extra long Eid break wisely and try to come up with something. I'm going to try and continue with some fiction I started in 2008. We'll see how that goes.

Also I want to update my iPod. Watch a couple of movies. Maybe draw something.

So far it's been family get-togethers, which is'nt bad. I think seeing family is a healthy thing. And with it being Eid, everyone's there, and everyone's put that extra effort in looking good, and being nice and swell etc.

This is the first Eid I don't get any Eidiyas. :( It felt weird.

Wishing you all a happy Eid.

Q80Thug: Maybe not weird, just different. And I think you should rekindle your hobbies. Hobbies are good. :)

I love your writings. I do the same sometimes, looking at old posts and get amazed by some of the things I wrote. Not many of'em but some, yet it is worth it to look in to your archives and get encouraged to keep on writing. quantity doesn't matter as long as you keep on writing and giving us the chance to read what you've written. looking forward for your fiction posts!
