Mysteries and wonders of writing
Ever wondered how mysterious a writing skill is? At times you can easily put down your thoughts impromptu, while at other times you may face writer's block. Share your experiences on the art & skill of writing.
Sometimes I personally feel writing is an unpredictable and a tricky job. Let me share my feelings here.
One fine morning an outstanding writing idea comes to your mind and you think that by evening you will pen it down, but unfortunately, by then the idea vanishes.
Sometimes even being busy with your work various writing topics, sentences, words throng back of your mind and you feel you could write on hundreds of topics on the spot. But at times even if you are sitting idle with notepad open in your computer, trying to think hard on what to write, your mind is blank and you are unable to think of even a single good topic.
Many times while writing you become so poetic and use all sorts of good vocabulary, frame interesting sentences and write an attractive content. But sadly in the next paragraph the same magic disappears and you end up in framing a content which may sound ordinary when read.
Sometimes you struggle to keep your writing within the word limits as you have countless ideas to express. Sadly at times, you struggle to reach even the minimum word limit when your mind is drained of ideas.
There are times when you are able to express many things within a small paragraph. On the contrary, sometimes even an essay is not sufficient for you to express those few thoughts and you keep beating about the bush.
At times writing a paragraph or two can be a cakewalk and just a matter of few minutes whereas sometimes it is not possible to achieve the same even in a day. The mind is a kitchen where the writing ideas are cooked and I would say work schedule for this kitchen is quite unpredictable.
One thing is clear. There is no fixed schedule as to when good writing ideas will visit your mind and again vanish. Sometimes morning, sometimes evening and at times even middle of the night, ideas do not follow visiting hours as we human beings do. So next time when a great writing idea knocks the door of your mind, make sure you encash it as soon as possible.
So I wonder with writing having so many ups and downs, what are the favorable conditions under which one can expect to write a good content? Well, I feel really there is no fixed schedule for the same as ideas are spontaneous. Still, a quiet environment, fresh, relaxed and peaceful mind added by a poetic mood can fuel your mind to cook some outstanding writing ideas.
