Writing -An Awakening

Writing for a blog has unleashed a new spirit in me. And the spirit had taken me away to the library for the past week .I have been reading book after book about writing. Three books that I have on hand are A History of Writing by Albertine Gaur, the story of writing by Andrew Robinson and To Tell the Truth by Connie D. Griffin.

I am awestruck after reading these books. Honestly, I started writing just to echo out my thoughts, poems and feelings. Neither did I know down the road I would be so fascinated by writing that, I have started gathering information about the origins of writing to where it has reached now.

Seriously now I want to explore more about writing, for which I have been doing a lot of Reading. I now believe reading enhances writing skills. I myself can tell the difference when I read blogs, Newspapers, Articles, Magazines, Books. It has showed me different styles of writing.

What an awakening writing has been to me. There’s no second thought from now. I have taken writing more serious now. Will I get better .All I can tell is, I am going try and try and try to get better.

Boundaries or Barriers its all about Writing

I was walking to my work couple of days ago. I happened to pass by a tunnel it was 4:00 am in the morning ,As I set foot into the tunnel a moment of doldrums struck me .I started moving forward step by step each step i took i thought i could analyze my life and mysteries surrounding me.call it a moment of despair. couple of big strides and i was moving into darkness that’s when i went into a apprehensive state and gave myself a nudge saying to myself in life you might end up in situations like these most of the time. Then i remembered no matter what there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

Halfway through the tunnel i reassured myself, if i can get through this tunnel and see light at the end of the tunnel i would always savor this moment to gain strength and courage in every aspects of my life. And i took pride in marching forwards by now i could throw away all the inhibiting thoughts that were hindering me. I was more focused on reaching the end of the tunnel .As i gazed at my watch at the end of the tunnel it was 4:22 AM. I made it through to the end .It might have taken me 22 minutes to reach the end.

Sometimes to become a good writer one should try to get the readers feel absorbed to what you present to them. Just write don’t worry about the outcomes of who follows your blog or who read it .Everything comes with practice, the more you write the better you get. Readers will follow if your work gets better and better. Is it just me or everyone who write ask themselves what kind of a writer they should become. Is it going to be that hard to write, what you think or what you for see. Honestly i don’t know the rules of writing. But i give my heart and soul when it comes to writing. I guess a writer has no boundaries or barriers.
Its just all about writing
