What am I doing here ?

I have been planning to write a book for as long as I can recall.

My self assessment is , I think I have good skills with people, good public speaking ability and am fairly articulate. I also love to read, especially what some people call "literary fiction". I cant say that I am a fanatic reader, but, I am always reading something all the time. I also love performing arts like Theatre and Performing music live in front of an audience.

Some how all of this coupled with a desire to leave a lasting imprint on this world has ignited the desire in me to create some thing. Some thing that others can see, feel and be moved by in some way. Some thing permanent, some thing nice.

Initially, i thought of making a movie, but that was unrealistic. Then it came down to making ad films, but that also seemed to be a risk, considering that I started to do well in my career and the comforts the modern MNC marketing job seemed too good to leave. So finally, it came down to writing. I don't know if that is a logical conclusion to arrive at from where we started, but this is where we are. I have been telling myself ages now, "Some day I will write a book".

This has now transformed to, at least I will write a blog. At least I will write.

So here I am - I will write. I have no subject, I have no inspiring thought that is consuming me, my fingers are not moving on their own, a story is not building.

So I have nothing really to write about, hence, I have decided that my writing will be random for now. I will write about what I read, yes, I will do some book reviews here. I may also write about interesting people I meet and random thoughts. I may also write about Marketing (my profession) Hopefully, some of it will make sense to some people. If it makes sense to me in the future and if there is trend that I can see - may be it will lead to some thing. May be....
