Those of you who follow my blog might be surprised to see a new blog called The Melodramatic Bookworm on your feed. I’ll get to what this blog is in a minute. But first, let me acknowledge that it is indeed unconventional that I posted a couple of articles before doing this intro. But hey! Better late than never! Isn’t what they all say?
Every once in a while in life, we get the idea to change things for the better, and also the opportunity to do so. And so it happened with me.
I hadn’t been able to do so earlier, thanks to my uber-busy schedule. When life presented me with both, the idea and the opportunity, along with the enthusiasm that such “ventures” initially provide, I grabbed them with both hands! It’s now or never, I thought.
I knew that I couldn’t keep going at the pace I was going at. I had to make it better. Put in more energy into what I wanted to do in order to see it through and put it in a place where I wanted it to be. Mere words of passion wouldn’t be enough. I had to channel that passion more and more into what I had started almost two years ago. And for this, change was required. A change that filled me with hope every time I thought about where it could bring me. I am never going to get this time back, so I must use it well, I told myself.
And because of this, The Review Lounge became The Melodramatic Bookworm.
The name makes so much more sense than the original. In two ways. One, that I am a drama queen and a bookworm. Those who know me well will vouch for it. And two, the ‘melodramatic’ indicates that I dabble in movie reviews in addition to the book reviews that ‘bookworm’ represents.
There’s nothing better in the world than feeling pumped after reading a good book or watching a good movie. Okay, I agree. Not all books and not all movies are entertaining. But you get the general idea.
It is the anticipation that is most exciting. Will the story take me on a journey? Will the journey be a rollercoaster or a stomp in the desert or a swim in the ocean? Will I love the journey? Will I hate it? What can I take away from it? Will it live up to the hype? Will it rock my world? Will it bring me peace? Will I see the world in a better light after this?
So many questions! Just one thing to do to find the answer!
Thus it is that I embark on this re-planned journey, to put my thoughts out and hope that it reaches more people than ever. Yes, there is a possibility of a huge reform yet again. But there’s time for that and when it does happen, I will reach out yet again.
Because the world is small, admirers hard to find. So when I do, I’ll make sure to keep you all close and in the loop. The number is small, but the joy you give me is incomprehensible!
