Writing Inspiration #41

As writers, we are always concerned about one thing – is the writing good enough? Should I change this or modify that? Should I remove this or add that? These thoughts plague every writer’s mind and one is never at ease, no matter how good a piece of work is produced.

While it isn’t wrong to be wanting to be right all the time, we ought to remember that it is a mine full of debris that has diamonds clutched to its bosom. Until we dig the debris out, we can’t land upon the diamonds. So it is with writing.

All good works come from several rounds of revision, after having discarded most of the matter that felt crucial in the beginning. The bad writing or doubtful writing; as I like to call it, is essential for you to define good from bad. So take it all in a positive light and let the pages be filled with your thoughts.

Here’s a quote to motivate you.

  1. Very true. Sometimes what seems look good in the beginning we discard it later while what seems bad initially we keep it. Initial draft changes a lot until we publish it. Sometimes I change a few things even after publishing the post because what I thought good before publishing the post doesn’t seem good later.

  2. Hi Asha!
    Thank you for sharing this piece of writing inspiration 🙂 I agree that producing something good often means writing something bad first, then doing multiple rounds of revisions to tease out the good from the bad. The key is to keep going and not give up!
