Literary Reasons

The seriousness of literature does not influence everybody. Its intensity and honesty stimulate a sceptical mindset towards literature. Every possible type of critique pours over the literary conversation to dilute the seriousness. Complexities of serious literature require an open-minded reading while trying to interpret the writer’s sentiments. When a writer stirs uncomfortable emotions, the initial reaction towards literature is that of disbelief, accusation, and rejection … Continue reading Literary Reasons

So, you write?

Writing is never an easy journey. It’s a circuitous way towards a handful of words. Sometimes they are unknown in their nature, sometimes forceful, sometimes evocative, sometimes depressing, sometimes flattering, and sometimes argumentative. Even a tiring journey as this won’t assure the writer a peaceful way with words. Adroitly handling the diverse nature of emotions requires tact. The pen is only skillful only after the … Continue reading So, you write?

All this hubris about “I know everything” and “I can rest comfortably on my previous work”, is nothing but an illusionary world that jolts the feeling of complacency. The writer’s humility and genuine fierceness to reflect upon the human fallibility, tribulations and prejudiced conflicts … Continue reading The Complexities of Writing

Cursed Ink
