A Year of Everything

Greetings dear reader,

On the 4th of June, 2014, I created another new blog called ‘stormywriter – A Written Dream’. I have a typical history of starting with new writing atmospheres but never controlling them. Eventually, I let my procrastination get the best of me.

This was different. I’m truthfully astonished to announce that stormywriter turns 1 year old!

Let me give you a brief on my year here:

My honest initial intention behind starting a poetry blog was to maintain all my poems online in an organised manner like a repertoire of some sorts.

I realized soon enough that this was not the case. stormywriter became my thought-bank; my feelings hub; my place to express. So, I started publishing my poems. One by one, I set off (sometimes at unearthly hours), spending my summer days eagerly hoping for the world to read and perhaps share my feelings.

I was tremendously inspired to write more for my exciting blog (I have published an article or two as well). I must admit that some of my poems can be found online as well on various other websites.

Personally, the year has been a maze for me. My poems will speak this out – loud and clear. There is a connection between my poems and me – They speak for me! That is my only style of writing. I write what I cannot say; what I cannot sometimes even think about. Poems are fueled by my imagination and real-life events but I promise you something, dear reader… I promise you that, every single stanza, line and word written comes from my heart.

As the summer heat slowly vanished and welcomed a cooler and comfortable winter, I had the opportunity to write some more poems for you. Long evening walks, cozy music-listening poses and thoughtful relationships with individuals takes your mind to strange yet plentiful places.

I welcomed the new year with awe and promise. I managed to publish some more work online.
Now, I sit here lost for words.
I have a mental clue that I started writing this blog about a year ago but as I checked the exact date, I truly felt that this post is vital for you and me.

This sums up my 1 year as stormywriter.

As of today (1st of June, 2015), I have published 24 poems and certain articles addressing opinions, interpretations and photography. 

Dear readers, followers and visitors, you have my love and gratitude. I am most thankful to you for eternity. You make me proud of stormywriter. Every single follow and comment makes my heart race and my chest swell with pride.

In Conclusion: 

To sum it all up, I am extremely happy and proud of stormywriter – my written dream.

I will definitely keep on writing and I hope to write a similar post next year.
Until then, I hope you read, enjoy and share your emotions with my poems. They are for you, dear reader.

Announcement: 

As an anniversary present (Yes, I get to use that word now), I am announcing that I will publish a new poem on the 4th of June, 2015. The poem is based on the mind’s journey towards an unknown yet understood realm. A timeless adventure of love and the strange. I hope you will enjoy it.

A Note to the Reader:

I bid you farewell from this post, dear reader. I hope you have enjoyed reading this story as well.

If you ever want to talk to me, perhaps give me something to write about or ask me more about myself, feel free to email me at: arjun.rajeev@hotmail.com or just leave a comment here.

Thank you,

Arjun Rajeev

Thank-You Message

Greetings,

I write this post with much happiness and joy. I am delighted to announce that stormywriter.wordpress.com has hit 50 followers today! 🙂

While this may seem as a small achievement, it is one that I shall cherish forever!

To all my readers (new and old alike): I strongly believe that literature is much more than an art. It is an integral part of oneself and it is the strongest, most bravest way to tell the world what you want. Writing is my passion!

I relish each and every like, follow and comment on my blog because no matter what it says or means, I am satisfied that it is being read by an audience. There is nothing more that I ask for!

I feel that it is important to share this milestone with my readers!

I leave you with some of my favorite lines taken from Robert Frost’s poem:

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

 

Have a nice day and stay tuned for more poetry!

 

Thank you,

Arjun Rajeev
