The feeling of being a writer(greatness)

I know that feeling, better felt than described .

When I read a book, I get a kind of inspiration. This inspiration makes me see myself.


I see my stories and the lyrics in my head. As much as I know and see them . I try to write and what I come up with is like I am gifted with bad writing.


This I have come to understand as the incompetence disconnect.


A fancy way of saying what I imagine is different from what I draw.


It is more like when a child not good at drawing draws the face of their parents.


What we see is scary. They have the face in their head and in their dreams yet what they draw contradicts every other claim.


I have that feeling and I know you might have that feeling too.


I dream of stories . I see them when I see people.


When you are obsessed with something you see it everywhere.


If you are a lover of cars you start noticing the cars. With people you hear their stories.


Little conversations and dialogue lead to a whole different world.



We need to learn and practice to hone our skills to become better writers of our stories.


There are two recipes for a great story or writing.

  • The story
  • The manner telling(skill comes in here)



There are ideas everywhere. I do have a boring life as you might say.

Can be made into an exciting piece with the right skill.

As Shakespeare said, writing is to make the old seem new and the new look old.


When I move on, that feeling of greatness if I refuse to heed to it, haunts me .

Everytime I read a book ,hear a story, dream of intricate stories.


It is the reason why when I see other people’s writing. It grieves me. It has nothing to do with these writers. But they just happen to remind me of the feeling.


The feeling of writing.

The feeling of beauty.

The feeling of stories .

The feeling of greatness.


Thank you .


Update

Expect more from me.


I finished my exams . I will be writing more and testing things. I won’t tell instead I will show and then tell.

Show don’t tell



A Quick favor.

I send this newsletter every week and writers reply to my email which makes my day. You open the emails and read every week. So I assume the emails are helpful. Else you would have unsubscribed from the link in the footer.


I want to be sure when I am writing an email it is helpful. Please reply to the email with the writing milestone you are working towards or the things you would love to see in the emails.


Also questions.


Thank you.


Until next time, keep writing.
