I am unwritten, can't read my mind, I'm undefined
I'm just beginning, the pen's in my hand, ending unplanned

I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines
We've been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can't live that way

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you can not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you

           ‘Twas a bright Saturday morning when I wake up with a never-before had combined feelings of anticipation and enthusiasm. Firsts are always memorable and in fact on that particular day, as the ferocity of the sun’s rays became unbearable, the excitement that enveloped me was also far escalating. I have always loved to witness and discover new things probably because they make the pages of my life fonder to look back and reminisce.

Getting out from the portals of college is a huge relief. No more kilometric assignments to pass, mind-boggling quizzes and exams, and waving adieu to my disheartening professors.  Enduring four long years of hardwork and sacrifice is an answered prayer or to some a wish granted.

            I thought life after college would be easy then. I can wake up in varying angles of the sun. I can watch documentary programs late at night. I can savor my lunch meals up to the last dish. I can go out with close friends without thinking of my untouched assignment in chemistry. I can take my time watching the sea waves kiss the white sand during my early morning walks on school days.

I’m re-printing below, a slightly revised version of an article which got featured in WritersWeekly.com as a Success Story four years ago (December 17, 2002 to be exact) when I had just started freelance writing. It’s sort of my personal reply to the question, “How do I know if I’m really meant to be a writer?” It can even be applied to the perennial question, “How do I know my real purpose in life?”

Writing downslides 2: Decadent

by meg ( | | | | )

Basically, whoever writer you come across with will tell you that the common ailment of most writers is laziness or cowardliness.  How to avoid it?
1. Always carry a pen and a paper-Though there are some who are also enterprising enough to use anything available at hand whenever an idea strikes unexpectedly in most unlikely places.  Be it a chocolate wrapper, ticket, tissues or napkin.
