Let your writing liberate you. Write with passion to allow your feelings to breathe and enjoy the journey across blank pages.~ Amitav
Being a writer is not a choice, when words come to you, begging for attention. It could be a covert understanding between your feelings and words to find the most formidable medium to chronicle the dialogues that occur between your conscious self and the subliminal world.
In a way, a writer is perceived to be a recluse; one who relinquishes popular debates to lessen the noise that proves to be distracting for critical thinking. A writer’s world is an enigma.
A writer seems to be aware of every little narrative that occurs, yet, is conscious enough to discard most of them, to arrive at a completely new perspective of life. When the world debates, “everything has been said and there’s nothing new to write about”, a writer strives to create a conscious literary piece.
Challenges from naysayers and compulsive detractors inject a fresh dose of challenge in a writer. The entire process of writing starts with ‘knowing’; it’s an experience which every writer should start with to comprehend life.
When the world feels saturated with ideas, it is a good idea to expand the mind and prepare for a journey to go beyond the conventional interpretations. It’s a bold decision to transgress the ubiquitously acceptable narratives in search of new philosophies.
As a writer, be prepared to face stiff resistance and vehement arguments from a typical world. There will be enough discouragement and unnecessary comments to dissuade a writer from expressing fresh perspectives gathered from unknown facets of life.
Individual experiences of a heretic writer may not attract even a cursory look or, if they are read, the proposed ideas will be arrogantly contested, after comparison with widely accepted ones.
A writer must be prepared to accept the fate that those writing takes years to mature and percolates slowly through consciousness to even create a mild stirring, prompting them to consider the proposed ideas seriously.
Surrounded by solitude and continuous contemplations, an introspective mind not only hurls a collection of words and vocabularies but attempts to stimulate minds. Serious consideration for new thoughts can bring us closer to the reality of life.
Any genre of literature is an attempt to engage the readers with these thoughts and a debate take place at a sub-conscious level. There may be a parallel world of possibilities where life has an eternal purpose.
Writing is a philosophy embedded by the constant persuasion of the words (messengers) to propagate new ideas to readers. Any idea and character portrayed in literature is an opportunity to interact in the premises of a solemn environment with the utmost integrity. These intense debates will enrich the consciousness to observe life mindfully.
A writer has an immense responsibility towards society to contribute meaningfully and present new opportunities. It’s a success when a writer can radiate positive and progressive thoughts through literature.
