Finally writing about it.
The guest posts on Words of Aqua, that I have recently started doing.
You might all know that I don’t do reblogging over here on my personal blog and the other one, which is solely dedicated to poetry and prose.
So, back to what I was saying:
I don’t know why but I don’t like to reblog, at all.
Still I wanted other people’s work to get some recognition, if not a lot, so decided to have guests writers/poets/poetesses on my blog Words of Aqua.
We, me and my team @WOA, have done two posts up till now:
1. Parallel Universes (by Fiona Meyrick)
2. STRANDED (by Heidi Fraser)
Hopefully, I’ll be able to introduce more new poets/poetesses to you all.
If you want to join us as a guest writer/poet/poetess email us at:
You may let me know about your views, on my initiative, down below.
You’re most welcome to do that.
Thanks for all the support,
I have been asked to keep on writing these post scripts and so I will, but not only cause someone wants me to, as it was something I planned to do so anyway.
I’m thankful to have found myself a muse back when I did, she on the other hand doesn’t count herself lucky to be one though.
Also there are people who inspire me and make me write more and even better than before so I hope they keep on writing at their best as to keep me doing the best I can.
And may you all, writers, find people or words that inspire to do/write more as well.
I’m dropping by to give you all some updates:
1. Have been having these long talks and debates with fellow writers (professionals and amateurs) over what’s really good and what is not (after reading some written material of mine or theirs).
It all boils down to a few phrases:
‘I think’ or
‘In my opinion’ or
‘I’d prefer it to be like this’.
The point is to never go in guns blazing and say:
“There’s a grammatical error.”
And later come to know it is just one’s preference.
I always try to ask the writer/author of a text, if I think there is something not very usual among what they have written, by saying:
“You meant to write that, yes?” and such.
If there’s a much better way to convey your doubt(s) at what someone else wrote, which might not go with you, please do share.
I’ll leave you with these words:
“Never take a literary person lightly;
each of us writes for our own reasons and influences.”
Recently, I found out that one of my friends, from school days, have decided to start blogging on WordPress. It is really nice to see someone from one’s actual life to get involved in the same things one does. It is a way of supporting and being supported all at once.
You all might say: “Getting likes is not enough for you?”
I think, getting greedy aren’t I?
Thanks for all your support,
Cool & Calm Readers,
I’m definitely suffering from that syndrome where writers get this guilty feeling when they haven’t pushed out some words on the paper.
Oh yeah – Writer’s Guilt!
This, indeed, is an empty, sad and a yucky-slimy-wet feeling.
As I’m writing this I feel like something is, vacating some space around my heart, which was quite claustrophobic just a few minutes ago. The easiness in breathing is also a plus point. Writing a few words, a couple of lines actually – just saved my life.
Why don’t I visit a doctor you say?
You might be right assuming that it’s not just cause I wasn’t writing. I should worry about my health, so should every writer.
(Note to self: Just gonna ruin my health anyway.)
So, I must have lost you by now, no? You still here?
Anyways main topic: never back away from writing, no matter how harsh the environment is, it may just save your life. You may just inspire someone else who is far more in need of it. Remember, read and write; then read and write some more.
(P.S. Found out yesterday that I had encouraged another person, know her from the web, into writing her stories that she was scared of writing. Once again the reason she presented was: she didn’t know how to better describe the ideas in her mind. I told her, in a nutshell – to write first and worry about everything else later. I think of it nothing less than a miracle, the way a writer survives another day – against oneself.)
(P.S. (part two) I know one of the longest postscripts ever, right?
Apologies. Me and my thoughts.. we ramble – like lots.)
