Yes, what does it really takes?
Grasp on the topic. A heart to feel the pain. Capability to play with words and sentences, be it small or big. A proper spice by giving examples of oneself or others, to maintain the thrill. A sane/insane mind to see the other side of the world. It’s like looking both the sides of the coin at the same time. Love for every kind of subject. An emotional and stable state of mind to connect with the readers. Pouring out your heart by the help of ink. Seeing the world with the eyes of an owl. Oh yes, owl’s eye cause it can see the object in three dimension means every aspect of it. That’s why, we call it wise. A spirit to change the world with writing, like Adolf Hitler did with his Mein kampf. It triggered the readers with some of the facts and words. Well i’m not saying you all to write a book, article, essay or post filled with hatred for a particular ethnic group like he did. But we all have to agree it was a major breakthrough in his career. Let us forget about Hitler and his stupid book, all i’m trying to convey here is that we should know ” the jack of all trade” on how to make our piece alluring to the people. Writing is not a rocket science it just takes a bit more effort than understanding rocket science. It takes proper timing of words, instances, sentences, feelings and direction unlike simply learning the theory of rocket, science with a bit of physics. 😛
Pen is often compared with sword. Um… they forgot to mention what kind of pen as swords have type too. 😉 Jokes apart the writing is just like fighting with the world and it’s distorted grounds of belief, in a non-violent manner like Mahatma Gandhi did. Writing can be revolutionary, cute, admiring, commendable, lovable and etc. In short it can be anything what you want to make it. All it takes is patience, strong will power, boldness and an imagination like no one, here i would like to introduce you with Vladimir Nabokov writer of Lolita.
A book which shocked the world with dark and daring story of obsessive love and transgression. You have to creative not judgmental about your writings. Write it with a open heart, mind and soul. Think about every possibility to be creative by doing some research. A text with plain heart is like blank sheet of paper. Love your art and creativity cause you are the one blessed with this capability.
