The Writer Is Not In The Writing Writing

A writer is so closely associated with the words he produces that the readers find themselves compelled to spot the writer in the writing. And they try so very hard that they actually succeed very often. Every character that he produces is seen as either his real-life replica or somebody he wanted to be, hated or loved, or somebody he secretly was within the dark...

Writing, Writers and Perseverance Writing

There are times when a writer does not have much to write but must not stop the process of writing because when he does that the creative juices might stop flowing and any possible writing might just dry up in the pipeline itself. Of course, writing seems to be an easy process of stringing the words together in a manner universally comprehensible to the users...

The Idea Of ‘Something’ Writing

Writing about ‘just something’ is a difficult thing to do because the idea of ‘something’ as against a particular thing is not just vague, but also sounds rather confused and foggy, which it might often be.

Orhan Pamuk Writing

No, I am not a Pamuk fan. Not yet. Just got his famous book My Name Is Red and I am yet to start reading it. And no, I did not know the book was famous, I only knew that the author was. A Nobel laureate has to be famous. Without being famous enough to be known, he could not get a Nobel and after receiving,...

Indebted to words General / Writing

Sometimes — no, actually very often — I think about who is reading the words I am putting here. I am feeding into my computer and burdening the inexhaustible internet.

Truly, I don’t know whether a single person has ever...
