10 Steps to Becoming a Better Writer

In Inspiration, Reblog on October 16, 2012 at 12:01 am

“10 Steps to Becoming a Better Writer

Write.
Write more.
Write even more.

Write even more than that.

Write when you don’t want to.
Write when you do.
Write when you have something to say.
Write when you don’t.
Write every day.
Keep writing.”
― Brian Clark

“1. Write like you’ll live forever — fear is a bad editor.
2. Write like you’ll croak today — death is the best editor.
3. Fooling others is fun. Fooling yourself is a lethal mistake.
4. Pick one — fame or delight.
5. The archer knows the target. The poet knows the wastebasket.

6. Cunning and excess are your friends.
7. TV and liquor are your enemies.
8. Everything eternal happens in a spare room at 3 a.m.
9. You’re done when the crows sing.”
― Ron Dakron

Internet usher in a new World.

Hundreds of websites will switch to IPv6 for a 24-hour period.

Hundreds of websites will switch to IPv6 for a 24-hour period.

Well! today is another important day in the history of world of internet. It’s time to say adios  to IPv4 (xxx.xx.xxx.xx). Today several of internet companies are making test for IPv6, Internet protocol version 6, compatibility. With the ever-increasing websites the IPv4 shall exhaust by the end of 2011.

Think of it this way: When a telephone company runs of out of digits, it adds one more number. The same rule applies to Internet.

Some popular websites like Google & Facebook, claim that few of their users will have problem logging.

 Facebook said the adoption of IPv6 had become a “classic chicken-and-egg puzzle”. “Websites don’t want to enable IPv6 because a small number of their users may have trouble connecting,” it said.

“At the same time, doing nothing means that ever more users will have trouble connecting,” said Facebook.

Be prepared to usher in another world.

Teaching Facebook to my Nephew

In Anecdotes, facebook, Humor, scribblings, Writing on January 29, 2011 at 11:50 pm

Teaching somebody to facebooking is quiet a fun and tedious job at the same time. Here’s my nephew who is 10 years old and wants to learn ‘Facebooking’. When He first uttered those two words ‘fechbuk’ , I was dumbstruck. A kid who hasn’t ridden a tricycle by now ( ok now you are stretching it, he does manage to peddle your age old bicycle-said Voice), is uttering this wretched word. No wonder in few years he would probably know who is Mark Zuckerberg and in what circumstances Facebook was born, remember “Piss off bitch” (or something similar).

Anyway he insists me to open a mail id for him, which I do. ( And as always you would do it on Gmail…. off course! there is no argument on this). Then he logs into ‘Facebook’. (Don’t ask me, how many times he asked me to tell ‘what’s Login, chachu?’). Posted a beautiful picture of his, on the profile page. why you want this pic with all jackets and trousers? I asked. Chachu, there’s a girl in my class, she is very beautiful. I just want to show her this pic. She said she will be my friend. OOoooo MMmmmyyyy Gaaaawwd…. Damn you mark, My  nephew is gonna beat you, if you were in his time. He is doing all this to Impress a GIRL. I remember buying a girl a 25 paise Lemon chooce  (A small chocolate which taste like lemon) and here is this kid. What shall I teach him, He knows what status is and only needs my help in uploading pics. He has her mail id, searches her, Adds to his list and messages “Hey I am here on Facebook, Accept my friendship” What-a-generation !

I think I need a lesson from him on How to impress girls.

If you have similar experience of Teaching a kid and/or Getting taught instead by a kid. Share your story.

“If you saw Atlas, the giant who holds the world on his shoulders, if you saw that he stood, blood running down his chest, his knees buckling, his arms trembling but still trying to hold the world aloft with the last of his strength, and the greater the effort the heavier the world bore down upon his shoulders–what would you tell him to do?”
