Hello seekers!! How have you been?
In my previous post, I shared my love for painting and also gave you guys a visit to my very own art gallery. My latest artwork is on the verge of completion and will be out for you very soon. Meanwhile, the advent of this blog helped me realize, my other, yet very passionate love – ‘Writing’. I have admired works of classic authors like Leo Tolstoy in Anna Karenina and War and Peace and Jane Austen in Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice, to name a few. These authors have a very engaging style of writing which kept me hooked in their novels and wondering after. These writers have made time travel possible for me. When with Jane Austen, I experience the English households in the 1800s and with Tolstoy, the diversity of his work from illustrating Russian culture in Anna Karenina to his critical historical accounts of war struck Russia in War and Peace. So, guys, you might be wondering why am I throwing knowledge about good reads on you. This is because good reading takes you to good writing.
Good reading does not always include classic authors. This is all about personal preferences. I enjoyed the Harry Potter series as much as I enjoy self-motivation books by Rhonda Byrne and Charles F. Haanel. So, the choice of genre is personal and there is no claim as to which one is better than others. The point is to keep learning from the masters of the art.
Before, this blog I have tried my hands on various online competitions on writing. But frankly, so much talent is out there that I felt a need for subtle improvement in my writing style. Below is one of the many poems that I wrote. I am sharing it to motivate you guys to explore your hidden talents as there is nothing to lose here. I am a very immature and amateur writer but certainly not a scared one. So, guys, if you are not exploring your talents because you are scared of opinions then I advise you to forget others for once and live for yourself. Trust me it gives immense pleasure.
Lastly, below is the piece I wrote, leave your comments on it and share with me the work that you might have attempted once but are shy or scared to share. This platform is meant for us where we share our work or excerpt from it to motivate many others out there.
This is my poem “SHE”, about women in my country..
