noun: dilemma; plural noun: dilemmas

Situation in which a difficult choice has to be made between two or more alternatives, especially ones that are equally undesirable.
"he wants to make money, but he also disapproves of it: Den's dilemma in a nutshell"

So, now that the definition is out of the way, let me tell you what's my dilemma. As a occasional blogger I have few blogs and one of those is a short story blog called Story Teller now as you already know inspiration can hit us any place and at any time.The problem which I am facing is that I get the story ideas all the time but then again if I post them or write them right away then what if that theme comes up for some contest then what else would I do? 

So, although I keep a small description of the idea in my phone the posts are still far from the blog because I don't want to commit the idea to the blog making it used and I can always reuse and increase the scope for my personal use the post and idea would no longer be of any use for using in any contest as most of them need a fresh post. Well in the mean time after a very long time I posted two new stories on my blog and also two new blog posts on this blog here after all I thought that the stories may be limited but my thoughts are definitely not limited.

After all the blog is called Vikas Khair's Diary, the blog name changed to "The Sixth Sense" to increase the scope but the domain remained the same. So what I will try to do is keep my diary kinda updated with the going on but of course neither it's a proper diary and nor have I considered it such. So the thoughts would be there but no normal diary stuff like I did this and I did that. Well that's enough rambling for  a day and if I use all my words in one post what else would I write on the next day and the one after that. So take care you all and wish you all again a Very Happy New Year 2016.

Happy New Year 2016

Hello Friends and fellow bloggers right off the bat - A Very Happy New Year 2016 to you and your families. May the next year be way better for you than the year gone by. If the year 2015 was great for you I wish you even more success in the year 2016.

For me personally the last year has been a mixed bag well that's the story for every year so not much of a surprise. But many good things happened too:

1. My Short Stories Blog Story Teller was selected as Top 15 short stories blogs in India for the year 2015, so that was nice.

2. Everybody in my family is fine and in good health so that's a positive as well.

3. I got a new job and moved to a new city. I am now in Gurgaon from Bhopal.

4. My Photography got some traction and I covered many events for Aura Mall in Bhopal.

5. Three years in a row I have been able to achieve my Book Reading challenge with GoodReads. 

6. As the year ended the family is kinda back on track so hopefully things would be better in the new year. 

The Not so good things:

1. Lost my job in Bhopal.

2. Had a theft in my home.

3. Got some nasty bit of fever which kept me down for a week during which the above mentioned theft happened.

4. Marital issues.

As usual we just need to keep our chin up and meet all the challenges head on. Wish you all a very happy new year once again and May the new year 2016 be the year where you achieve your goals and be happy.
