Now, this is a topic raised by most of my readers. For those who are just readers there is always a curiosity to know how does one writes.
How you choose topic?
How you start writing?
How much time it takes?
How many drafts you make before the final post?
Do you think first or you just start writing?
And the list goes on….
Well, for me, writing is a hobby, a passion. I love writing and reading. What all I write about revolves around the things & circumstances happening with or around me. I keep observing and analyzing, finding reasoning & conclusions and this where I get my topics from. Once, this exercise is done and I get something good enough to jot down, I just pick up my laptop and start recollecting my thoughts to put them in words. It usually takes around half an hour for the first draft & then I spend some more time polishing it, formatting it, & of course choosing an appropriate image to accompany it. And then I hit the “publish” button & it’s done.
Thereafter, I eagerly wait for people to give their opinions on them. I mostly write about how I think of people, circumstances & world around us…what I interpret of it…& what my approach is… I am not perfect and so is with my thoughts..In fact, for most of things we cannot just define a boundary line of right & wrong, it is more about what pleases you and your conscious. So, when I pour my feelings here on blogs, I get different views, different ideas which at times changes my outlook and at times it helps me justify that I am on a right path.
I have been also asked what if my writing & ideas are criticized. Well, I would just say, that I do look at criticism as a favor to me. It gives me a direction and scope for improvement. It shows a path forward. I am not perfect & such comments help me in moving one step closer to perfection. So, all positive comments shows me I am on right track, all negative ones help me change my track & this is how I move ahead in my journey.
But, this goes well with blog. For writing a book one needs lot of patience, lot of hard work & I believe it’s really a tough task. I have tried doing so several times but no success so far.
So, it’s my request to all my wordpress buddies to share their experiences about writing – a blog, a poem, a book. On this platform of writers & readers it would be really great to know about your “writer’s mind” too.
“WORDS ARE THOSE POWERFUL TOOLS WHICH CAN WIN WHAT WEAPONS CAN’T”.
“WORDS IF EXPRESSED WISELY HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE THE WORLD.”
“WORDS CAN POUR YOUR THOUGHTS ON PAPER, SO THAT OTHER PEOPLE CAN ENJOY THEM TOO.”
Wish you all a happy time ahead in this “WORLD OF WORDS”..
Keep posting…Keep writing…Keep reading..!!
