7 Reasons Inspiration Matters to Writers | WritersDigest.com

In Tips n Tricks, Writing on October 27, 2012 at 12:01 am

In the series to update myself, There is another find  7 Reasons Inspiration Matters to Writers | WritersDigest.com.

Summary:

We know the common wisdom: Serious writers don’t wait to be inspired. Serious writers roll up their sleeves and get down to the business of writing, just as they would get themselves to work at any 9-to-5 job. “Being inspired” smacks of amateurish, daydreamy passivity, the notion that some supernatural presence must appear before us before the words can flow. And we’re reminded to death of Thomas Edison’s over quoted words about invention demanding 99 percent perspiration and 1 percent inspiration, perhaps not realizing that without that primal 1 percent jolt from the gods, Edison might not have been driven to sweat out the hard work or to cope with a zillion things going wrong.

What you do, when you have the block?

In Anecdotes, Blog, Inspiration, Tips n Tricks, Writing on October 22, 2012 at 12:01 am

Let me start with an anecdote. In the dead of night, I received a call from a very good friend of mine. This friend of mine, let me tell you is way better than me in blogging arena. In fact I stand no where in front of him. I was telling, I received the call from him and what I heard him telling  “Dude  I’m having the writers block, what next?”  Next moment I found myself googling writer’s block.

Well, I do not deny having the same feeling but never knew having a technical term for that feeling, Writer’s Block, wow ! I went through several blog reading  through this block term and literally found some inspiring  articles.

I have tried my ways to overcome these block feelings. I just take my fountain pen and a sheet of paper and write incessantly for 5 minutes. i just don’t think. I write, whatever comes to mind. I go with flow. not thinking just writing. Sometime it makes me feel like writing more and sometime it gives me few ideas to think over it and do some blog post writing.  Let me tell you the truth, once I tried writing a blog post in that 10 min block time and after ward when I read it, I was surprised. Here’s the post.  How good can u actually write when you are writing from a sub conscious mind rather writing the other way (at least my standard of writing). I admit, I’m naïve in this business of writing, but writing interests me. And I’m sure it will get better with Time. BOL! 🙂

Finally…

  • Write like you’ll live forever
  • Write like you’ll croak today
  • Write.
    Write more.
    Write even more.

Don’t Quit

In Poetry on June 21, 2011 at 8:30 pm

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out –
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

If You Think You’re Beaten

If you think you’re beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you’d like to win, but think you can’t,
It’s almost for sure, you won’t.

If you think you’re losing, you’ve lost.
For out in the world we find –
Success begins with a person’s will,
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you’re outclassed, you are,
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You have to stay with it,
In order to win the prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go,
To the one with the better plan.
For more often than not, you will win,
If only you think you can.

– C. W. Longenecker

where there’s a will , there’s a way

At the end of day it’s all about the choices we make and our state of mind !

How many times have you asked this question to your self? I just stumbled upon this awesome Blog Why we write?, where people have shared their opinion about this very question Why We Write? Each story is intriguing. You can find some commonality between yourself and the blog post writer.

Reading has been my hobby and writing came along with it  coincidently. Now I enjoy writing. I might not be a very good writer but I’m just giving it a shot. My sole purpose of writing is to get myself better at this and to upgrade my intellect by reading many blogs.
