I ransacked my folder of 37 under construction blog posts still couldn’t find anything that I could modify and post for today’s word prompt. As I have splitting headache, I couldn’t think of anything new.
But I promised myself that I will try my best to write every day, so why not continue with yesterday’s situation.
Background: Kindly, refer to previous post.
…First I started with reading and summarizing the whole chapter, didn’t work. So I started skimming and trimming it.
After 7.5 hours of constant effort, I somehow managed to squeeze 10 pages into 2 pages. But when I read it, it downed on me that I am ruining something sacred. I am killing the soul of the original content just for the sake of making it shorter.
Then I did something that required immense courage… without wasting another second I surrendered and apologized to my friend.
I said “look, if I continue doing it I will finish it eventually. But when somebody like me, who has never studied Sufism, will try to compress its 20-page long theory in 1 page the end result will turn out to be a shallow set of words. Its actual spirit will be lost.” And I e-mail whatever I had written.
There comes a point when stepping back from a situation Timely saves you from worsening it.
