I recently started having this intense “want” to write something, anything, everything. So the plan is to get the thought into my head so many times, that the head fills up to the brim and then words just start spilling out. It could be the only thing that will cleanse my soul.
I’m reading “Chicken soup for the writer’s soul” these days, I went out of my way to order it from flipkart.com. It has real stories from real people who became writers through sheer determination, faith in their work, passion. Some writers persisted for years before they were even remotely successful.
It’s not easy to create art, and writing is the only art that I can understand!
Can I write?
From what I know about myself, it’s not about being “not easy”, its impossible. But I will write anyway, because I like to, because my mom likes it, because 1-2 of my friends like it and because I owe it to all who read and enjoy my “art”.
Please don’t think of me as obnoxious because I call my pre-amateur scribblings as art. I find pleasure in thinking of it like that, keeps me motivated. But the best thing to keep us going is YOU, a comment – good, bad or ugly will mean the world to us. Even a simple dot is enough.
In fact the number of comments on the blog is the major criteria to measure the impact of your writing.
Thanks for your time
