This is my attempt to describe what life of a writer looks like when no one is watching them, and also what one watches. What exactly happens and what people perceive. This is my attempt to bring forth just that.
Many want to marry or date a writer, but they feel repelled by the mind coming with the package. They just won’t accept that. To them, it makes no rational sense, and yet they like the little details in which that writer person of their life treasures everything.
Shall we begin?
Act #1: Writer’s Block
When an untold story revolves in your head, itching every neuron to pen it down, when even a phrase refuses to conjoin with any word to become a proper quote, that’s when the writers’ real nightmares come to life, a period commonly, and very casually, described as The Writer’s Block.
These nightmares are the time when poor writers get restless, and are judged for being eccentric.
Act #2: Hitting Bedrock
Emotions are often explained by comparison with water. So, here is one:
Today is the day of a mysterious whirlpool of sadness. A whirlpool, under water, drowning me down, in a way that I am sinking, but not hitting the bedrock, and that means lesser and lesser hope of bouncing back anytime sooner.
Act #3: A Writer’s A Warrior
When we read, we start at the beginning and continue until we reach the end.
When we write, we start in the middle and fight our way out.
Act #4: Writing
If writing for your creative expression is selfishness, then ghostwriting is a murder. What would you prefer?
I urge all my readers who are writers too to submit their experiences for this post and contribute to the kaleidoscope that a writer’s life is – broken, colorful, yet beautiful from every angle inside.
