I Ramble: 9 June 2017

In the name of Allah, the All-Compassionate, the All-Merciful.

I’m reconsidering my blogging streak… Do only ‘I Ramble’ posts qualify as daily blogging or am I allowed to blog under other categories without posting an ‘I Ramble’ post?

It should be fine, right? I mean I am posting daily on my blog…so that is blogging?

Hmm… I need an opinion on this. If it doesn’t matter, then I will carry on generating content on this blog daily and qualify it as blogging daily. If it does matter, then that means I’m failing my Ramadhan challenge.

So unless someone is against it, I’m sticking to my position on what daily blogging is. Hehe.

And yay! I made it for an entire week of blogging daily!

You would have noticed that I began a new category in light of a new story I’m writing. I thought it’d be something fun to do something that I enjoy, which is writing fictional stories.

So far, Mortal sounds like the typical teen drama, right?

Well, for me it doesn’t matter. The beauty of Mortal lies in the fact that I have made no planning whatsoever for the story so what you see is what you get. Whatever has been typed, pretty much rolled out of my head instantaneously. So the writing really is inspiration-based. That also means that the story might be entirely shit but I’m trying not to allow that to happen.

Le fiance took an interest in Mortal and has reflected his understanding of my story so far, which is very good. I’ll admit that I wanted it to be more vague to readers but at the same time, I needed to make some things obvious to set up the story for the readers. I guess I settled for the story to not be a mystery of a mystery book (well, I think if I have the money, I might think about publishing Mortal as a book).

For some reason, I’ve been writing Mortal after midnight and I must say, I always feel the spooks when I’m writing a chapter…and I still feel it even after writing!

It’s 1am now and I don’t feel like writing another chapter. I don’t feel inspired yet. Hence, I decided to substitute it with this post. Hehe. I don’t intend to write the chapters strictly after midnight though. Maybe I’ll be more inspired later in the morning. After all, Zola will be attending her first day of classes so maybe I’ll be more inspired when writing about it during the daylight. More realistic anyway.

On a personal note, I have received two email replies from two prospective employers and both require me to sit for their tests. I won’t be job-hunting tomorrow onwards because I’ll be studying hard for one of the tests. Besides, I’ve applied for at least 15 jobs already. I’ll look again after I’ve taken my first test because I want to get a better idea if I stand a good chance first.

Can’t believe it’s already 14 Ramadhan. We’re about halfway through the fasting month already.

I hope everyone is enjoying their Ramadhan. Mine is bittersweet for me because I can only know about le fiance’s suffering from far. That is quite a mental punishment for me but I needed to learn to be patient and I needed to learn to seek help in prayer.

And Allah is Al-Jabbaar, the Powerful, the Irresistable. – MM
