On Writing

A scene is the kernel part that gives a twist and turn to the story. It doesn't matter whether you are writing a fiction type of story. A scene must always seem live and real in order to keep the reader on. Remember a scene is meant to take the story forward. Scenes in general stir things up; if a scene doesn't fit the part simply toss it aside for the next availability

I read this somewhere and I found it very interesting

The second thing you have to do to be a writer is to keep on writing. Don’t listen to people who tell you that very few people get published and you won’t be one of them. Don’t listen to your friend who says you are better that Tolkien and don’t have to try any more. Keep writing, keep faith in the idea that you have unique stories to tell, and tell them. I meet far too many people who are going to be writers ‘someday.’ When they are out of high school, when they’ve finished college, after the wedding, when the kids are older, after I retire … That is such a trap You will never have any more free time than you do right now. So, whether you are 12 or 70, you should sit down today and start being a writer if that is what you want to do. You might have to write on a notebook while your kids are playing on the swings or write in your car on your coffee break. That’s okay. I think we’ve all ‘been there, done that.’ It all starts with the writing.

On Writing

The birth of a poem is a kind of lingering voices hearing inside my head. These voices cannot be ignored— they are attention seekers and not until they find satisfaction— my head won't stop pounding and my eardrums won't stop aching. Each piece of a poem comes with its own language, rhythm and always parable. In my poetry, I usually let the natural voice flow throughout the stanzas— even when I know it might come back to bite me later. What do I mean by that? Sometimes people may disagree with the content of your writing. Just remember, you are the transcriber and the message cannot be altered. A true poet does not write on the basic to please— you are just ‘one’ of many(...)

On Writing

To write is the urge to keep going. If writing is your endeavor- then, commit yourself to it. Write every day, write what makes you happy and worry. Don't be afraid to transcribe down things that annoy the pit of your stomach. Some people may not like the content of your writing. It doesn't matter, keeps the ink rolling- sooner or later you'll find people in your corner. Just remember, be natural and make sure your writing is circumscribing by thoughtful connotation.

On Writing

Every piece of writing is somewhat related to a previous content. On that note, there is no written material out there that is genuinely original. However, the style has to be unique and vital.

On Writing

Writing is like one of my fetishes. Sometimes when writing, I have no control of my words. I only have the urge to express and convey. It’s like a greater voice that’s handling my thoughts. I always believed a writer is a chosen vessel - one who delivers whatever that needs to be written.
