A news magazine's September issue which has a cover story on Chetan Bhagat and his upcoming novel, which has already sold 2 million copies before its release (let me say it in one go..phew!!) inspired me to become a writer.
Yes, I want to become a
writer but like every beginner I have got no clue about writing. Like
every beginner, the first thought that comes to my mind is to share
my life's experiences but c'mon who in the world
would be interested in my any kind of experiences after all, I am
just a commoner!
Then like every beginner, I go on to frame a typical
story with the thought that it will turn into a smashing Bollywood
hit one day (crazy right?). Then again like every beginner I want to
write something inspirational, something revolutionary, something
that changes things, and something that gets people in action.
What really ignited this fire in my belly? I ask
myself time and again. Is it boredom? No. Fan following? No. It is
something which is still not known to me but for now, let us just say
a voice in my head shouts really really loud and says "Just do
it..!" And so I say "Relax subconscious...I will!"
And after all the good and bad arguments with the
subconscious I have got a piece of advice for all my fellow
beginners. You will fight this dilemma each and every day of your
life till you begin writing the first chapter of your book or the
first paragraph of your article. So fight the negative forces, listen
to the subconscious (this crazy freak can be a life changer..!)
Would love to know the dilemmas of all my fellow
beginners. Till then stay inspired!
