My Seven Deadly Sins

This post is for "WEEK #59 (7-1-12 to 7-7-12): The Seven Deadlies: Pride, Envy, Wrath, Gluttony, Sloth, Greed, Lust'

I am guilty of the seven deadlies ! Well, not exactly me, but the writer in me! It's like this.Till recently, my writings were limited to blogging and I have just started writing prompts and 1000 worded fictions. I know..I know..I am a late starter.Anyway, the writer in me harbors all the seven deadly sins!

1. Pride: When I wrote my first 100 word prompt and published it, I was vain ! I am at par with all the Booker awardees, am I not?

2. Envy: I am envious of the awesome work done by all those writers out there.Why am I not able to dish out writings like them?

3. Gluttony: I have an inordinate desire to consume as many writing tips as possible since I have just embarked on this new writing journey.Surely this gluttony is pardonable ?

4. Lust: I do lust after the words, letters and sentence formation I am yet to master!

5. Anger: I am angry and absolutely cross with myself for not starting to write earlier.

6. Greed: I have an avaricious desire to acquire more and more writing skills .It is greed,right?

7: Sloth: I waste a lot of time playing online games like FarmVille and Solitaire instead of creative writing. Is playing these mindless games slothful?

There..there..I have confessed! Am I purged now?

Pin It now!
