I have tried to write blog articles many times. But, after writing one or two articles at most, I stop. Maybe because I always try to write the best article or maybe because I think I am a horrible writer. So, here I am trying to give it another shot.
But, before I actually dive into creating a bunch of articles, I thought it might be a good idea to figure out the reason “Why I always stop?”. I gave myself a week’s time to think about it while making this website for myself. I found that it might just be in my head; articles don’t need to be perfect every time. My English was just ok, the reason being that, I am from a non English speaking country. Although my education was from English medium school and college, it was never mandatory to speak English.
As people say, “You need to get out of your comfort zone to learn or experience something new.”, I think that is where I lacked; I never tried hard enough. That is until I planned to move to the US for higher education and I needed to be good in English for that. I started communicating in English as much as possible, mostly at work and with my friends. I wrote almost everyday to make my writing skills better as well. I never used to write anything before, because I was always afraid that I wasn’t good with English and so I couldn’t write. I felt I had improved. So, I appeared for the TOEFL exam which is mandatory for admission to US universities. I scored really well and that gave me lot of confidence.
After coming to the US I started to speaking English in my day to day life. My communication improved drastically. Now, I can say that I am good at it. But I still lack at writing. I have tried to improve writing by reading novels and blogs. In past, I have tried writing blogs but it never worked.
After realizing all the above facts, I am trying to write again. I think this is the right way to go about it; first figure out the problem and then work on it. It doesn’t need to be a perfect article. Hope I can continue and improve with my writing as well.
