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?

The Struggles and Seeking

The struggles are not spontaneous Emerges from the lifeless abyss cloaked in lament The face and tongue lie with the expressions and speech Frowning at the beauty of a verdant land Eyes despair at the images that are being created From a world of distress, the views are blurry and askew Sunken words chronicle misery of being in a predicament Wasteland storms add to the … Continue reading The Struggles and Seeking

Arduous Journey of Creativity

You can brood, feel extremely frustrated, offend people, appear egoistic, a victim of perceptions, get criticised, be ignored, become an object of jealousy, objectified, stultified, discouraged, encouraged by veiled sarcasm, ostracised All this can happen all at the same time or at various moments in a writer’s life, but they should never keep their pen down and allow them to be dry. Blank pages won’t … Continue reading Arduous Journey of Creativity

Blogging and Knowledge

Undermining the efforts of blogging platform by putting the entire endeavour into a narrow Social Media category is disconcerting.

There are so many wonderful writers and authors presenting articles which are worth reading, but unfortunately, due … Continue reading Blogging and Knowledge

Closer to the Distant feelings

That which is farthest feels closer to the heart If only the heart knew of this longing after emerging from the distractions They sit closer for some reason; trappings of regular dialogues of stern words Judging them takes time and sends tremors across the overworking mind Is silent wandering a myth for the humankind?  Let’s imagine the endless possibilities from the shy glances of curious … Continue reading Closer to the Distant feelings

About Love

Embracing love out of fear  Perils of putting the feelings into a trap Fear of love and love for fear- a Machiavellian reflection Neither love is justified nor fear addressed Intimate harangue continue to destroy It’s a bloody battle of foolishness Intelligence weaned away by flattery Trapped feet won’t allow the journey Fighting yourself does not battle fear Deceptions and disguise erase reality Renaissance times appear every … Continue reading About Love

How to Write Confidently

Read, but don’t read anything that fancies your eyes; the narrative should appeal to your heart. Try to think beyond the conventional. It is the writer’s ability to imagine a story that will reflect all the dimensions of life. Writing must be brave; do not conform to the usual storytelling ideas and never fashion your writing according to the set ideas. Write with a natural … Continue reading How to Write Confidently

Through Rejections

Writers do not relish rejections. That is supposedly the sentiment one has when volumes of work lay there in front of your eyes waiting to be placed somewhere. Placed somewhere? Absolutely not, that cannot be an appropriate approach to the hours you have spent, while preventing anyone from stepping into your world of words. A reclusive figure becomes almost a disgusting character. Society does not … Continue reading Through Rejections
