Writing Inspiration #14

Whoever said writing is easy! It’s child’s play, eh? And yet the greatest writers in history agree that the blank page has almost always got the good of them. Writing isn’t a piece of cake; especially not when you write about things that had rather never happened to you.

A bad memory is like a bad egg. The egg is out the window but the stench from it lingers. And when you get down to writing about it, is when the real trouble begins. Almost always, you never really write it the way it happened. Either the egg takes precedence in the story, or its smell, or the way it cracked in your hands, or how gross you felt when the muck smeared your fingers; all this, not necessarily in the same order.

I guess, what I am trying to say is this:


Does it make sense? Do you agree? Or are you one of those who can get down to writing anything like they would on a nice warm day by the beach?

Tell it all, reader. I’d love to know.

Happy writing, till we meet next.

Until then, carpe diem! 🙂

  1. I totally agree! You would think that writing experiences for example) would be easy, as they happened to us but it always seems to work out differently. I think it is akin to sculpture, you write a block of words and then rework them into something that hopefully will engage the reader and give them something to take away.

  2. Writing is not easy at all, and its surprising how I can never predict if am gonna be able to write or not sometimes, sorrow becomes my muse, gives me clear thoughts and numerous words to say, sometimes it paralyses me, and I stare and blank pages unable to help myself..writing is never easy!

  3. Asha, for me writing is always in spurts. At times my words just sway to my thoughts and present themselves so well on paper, while at other times I struggle to get some semblance into them. So now I only write when ideas flow!

  4. Usually, I would have right most of the things I had been through before and other things are most likely the fairy tales or the illusion of a fantasy world, or anything that came across my mind. But, there are days, of course, that one has to write down of which things that we have never go through or experience ourselves. But to fail in it means that we had learned something new by doing some mistakes, right? Fear not Failure for that is one way sometimes to go forward because you learned the least to use your COURAGE.
