Tips to become a better writer.


Hello Friends !!

Its been around 2 years that I have started blogging here at WordPress.com and the entire journey has been really really exciting.

To be frank I started blogging in the year 2009 Just for fun. I had no serious intentions of becoming a better blogger. All i wanted was that “I am also a blogger” title amongst my geek friends. Now i know how naive i was back then. Is it not so childish, that you flaunt your stupid sprouting talents infront of non blogging school kids that you know Blogging 101. By any chance if someone had visited my blog they would literally go back to Google and find out what is blogging. I was such a pathetic writer back then.

When imade a grand come-back in 2012 things were definitely not the same. I was lost in the huge blogging world when i just clicked dailypost.wordpress.com. The Daily Prompts, The Weekly Writing Challenges and the entries which were posted in the site totally gave me a breakthrough to set a blogging goal in my life. Its then i decided I want to be a blogger better than what i was yesterday.

Each month I started writing few posts until one day my old friend complimented on my article saying my English is definitely not the same used in my previous blog posts. He further added, that my blogging style had certainly improved a lot and it was much much better than what it was before. By hearing these words I learnt one thing…

GOOD THINGS DON’T JUST HAPPEN OVERNIGHT

Any skill, be it carpenting, driving, writing, reading, cooking, coding…. all takes regular hardwork.

Daily i make it a habit to open WordPress.com and go through blogs which i follow regularly. I go through their posts and learn few things daily. I also make it a point to go through one new blog daily. After seeing hundreds of blogs daily, I can now rate how badly i suck at writing. But i am trying my level best to become better writer each day. Today as i was surfing series of blogs I came across this blog named as “Just Writing

For years I’ve been tormented
With the pure, blatant agony
Of lacking skills in creativity

No paint or art or design or photography of any kind!
No dreaming of houses, or gardens divine

No decorating or scrap booking
Or anything that might be pleasing to the eye
Working from the logical left side of my brain

Which emanates from the ease at which I can math my brain!
The most artistic form of artistry I’ve had
Is sewing a tapestry!

It was bought by my mother
And now it is mine! (Because I took it)
(Because I could) (no one else cared for it)
And I’ve been working on it since 1999!

Finishing things is not my forte
As the pile of bookmarked books
Keeping me company

Beside my bed would testify
I like looking at them!
The covers are so divine!

But please don’t ask me to pick up…

Being #Immortal !!


Finite Creatures.

At what age did you realize you were not immortal? How did you react to that discovery?

In today’s blog i want to describe how I came to know how much mortal is my life when compared to some beautiful souls who have lived a life which is worth being called as #Immortal. People get uplifted from Mortals to Immortals when they rise above the rest of the crowd. Be it their Music, or their books or their speeches or their actions which made them immortal. It was during one of those long walks that i keep taking, when I am all alone that I realized the meaning of one of the famous quotes by Bruce Lee.

“The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering”

And as this quote flashed in my memory i was immersed into deep sense of regret. I witnessed a strange sensation of “being an under-dog throughout the school of life”. I quickly asked myself “Is my life worth remembering?”

And must say my mind quickly popped up with a beautiful answer “Your class mate of Grade 1 herself failed to recognize you and here you are sitting all alone with immense hope thinking whether your life will be worth remembering or not”

Its then I started realizing all the flaws in mine.

I started interacting with all sorts of people. Each person after i got in touch with him/her listed out certain flaws in mine. Initially accepting those flaws were a big difficulty for me. But eventually i have learnt how to have  all your sensory organs active while receiving CRITICISM in life.

The reason why i adopted this method in my life was this quote

quote-Socrates-all-mens-souls-are-immortal-but-the-88460

So in order to be immortal and divine one must at least try to cleanse his 100% flawed soul. Because…

18660-your-soul-is-a-beautiful-gift-to-the-worldAnd in order to have a beautiful soul and remain immortal you need to know what you are deep down your skin. What is it that makes you so vulnerable and what is it that makes you so strong. When this awareness comes into us, we all become immortals. A beautiful soul is very much essential in order to remain immortal. And in this quest of becoming an immortal I try to fulfill at-least one quality described by Elizabeth Kubler Ross.

simplerminders-com-beautiful-people-ross-withtext-displayres

The day i become #BeautifulSoul would be the day i will be called as #Immortal. Till then i am just a tiny speck when compared to the vast sky studded with Moon and millions of shining stars whose existence is very much immortal compared to mine.

What is being immortal according to you??

Would love to hear your views on the same…

Lots of love and hugs,

SLAM+

My journey began some time before the event which took place on Sunday 5th October 2014, SLAM+The Tour London

I owe the beginning of it to my good Twitter friend Deanne who first approached me with exciting news.

She asked if I had booked my tickets to the SLAM London concert.

I had indeed and was curious to know why she wanted to know as I had already mentioned the probability of going.

She then informed me that she was in communication with Sudhir Kothari, who is administrator for the SRK Chennai Fan Club @SRKCHENNAIFC

Sudhir was looking for reliable people who were attending the concerts that were to take place in the USA, Canada and UK and who would be willing to be a reporter and photographer for the club.

The intention was for us to take photos and videos of each event to be sent live to Sudhir and his…

Fourth Wall


Fourth Wall.

You get to spend a day inside your favorite movie. Tell us which one it is — and what happens to you while you’re there.

If there was one movie where i would love to get lost forever then that would be Alice In Wonderland by Tim Burton. I somehow love the entire concept of trusting your gut feeling and conquering the unknown. Throughout the course of the story of Alice, since the moment she chases a rabbit and falls inside the Rabbit Hole till she comes out of it, the entire journey is worth living. She meets hundreds of characters in the adventurous journey and if you happen to read the book “Through the looking glass” by the famous English Author Lewis Caroll, you will come to know the interesting conversations that Alice has with various animals. Each one speaking in a pretty much puzzled way and giving her loads of lessons all throughout the journey.

Alice in wonderland however seems pretty childish for few people today. But it is one such classic which has managed to captivate my mind forever. This is mainly because for me, Alice in Wonderland is not just a mere fairy tale. Its much more than that. Its a philosophical story of a young girl who falls down the rabbit hole only to come out of it as a matured female.

I would love to live in such a wierd world where each and every person is unique and strange in his/her own way. There is so much good and lots of evil inside that world yet Alice manages to take the good from the world and manages to discard the evil. Her friends however lunatic they may seem are all so wonderful. Isn’t it nice to be in an unconventional world where you are not bound with any norms. You can befriend anyone and learn something or the other from each one of them.

Here is one such quote which i like in the entire story not because its quite a much like a puzzle but it always helps me to get a clear cut thought about which road should i opt when i am indecisive.

alice in wonderland

Yet another scene which i love in the movie where Alice is assured by her father that “All the best people are mad”. So its okay to be mad….

Here is another scene which taught me to believe in the impossible. To believe in six impossible things before breakfast and the way Alice manages to slay the mighty Jabberwocky. Although it may seem like a fantasy but has given me lots of motivation in facing many a problems in my life.

Yet another scene where Alice is getting forcefully engaged to Hamish. Alice indeed very boldly handles the situation by refraining herself from getting carried away by the wish of her mother and relatives and choosing what she wants to actually pursue in her life.

The scene where Hamish proposes Alice

The scene where Alice chooses to pursue the Rabbit instead of saying Yes to Hamish

And the rest is perfectly summarised by Avril Lavingne’s official video on this movie

Sometimes it is good to be mad, weird and indecisive in order to get clarity on certain things in life. Its okay whether you get branded as an idiot stupid or a bitch in the entire process. All that matters is whether you are deciding from your mind and ending up in soup or choosing something from your heart and pursuing your goal with all your might to become successful in life.
