How do you think one can inculcate writing as their passion?
1A: I would like to break this down into two antithetical statements. Firstly, if it is one’s ‘passion’ then the likelihood of the verb’s implantation is indefinite. Secondly, if one would like to ingrain ‘writing’ as their passion, one should check the insight, why he or she opted – ‘writing’ in the first place. To be able to channelize, what one wants to bring to the table, leads halfway through. If it is of substance, one will be passionate to deliver the craft across; on the other hand, if it seems to be waffle or otiose to the writer, the likelihood of the passion to be ‘the passion’ might be censored early.
What are the several tips you can give to the budding authors for better expression?
Etymologically, ‘expression’ is to express oneself. Perhaps, it becomes subjective in every way. There is no overt or covert way to it. The budding authors know what they are writing and what they are seeking to express. I would only suggest them to reassess the efficacy scale. They can make someone read their work, in order to get a critical understanding of it. If we understand the perspective of the readers, we will be assured that our way of expression has been graphic. Being receptive to the micro and macro wavelengths, we not only amplify the efficacy level but also enlarge the betterment.
Give one tip on how people can start their writing journey.
3A: If one is willing to take the plunge, take it. Either, one will reach at a height or, end up in a plight. Both are transient in nature. It depends on the person what he or she infers out of it. This platform is yours, make erroneous, indistinct mistakes. Either ways, it will build your craft. Precisely, knowing your intent, start the writing journey, starting is the substratum. I would suggest the budding authors to take the plunge, more the number of times I am being repetitive of “taking the plunge” more are my chances of highlighting about the parachute!
How to recover from writer’s block?
Writer’s block is natural and is part of the process. We need to deduce the organic part of it. If we are able to absorb everything in this process we will be able to write well. As the proverbial saying goes, “Every cloud has a silver lining”. We cannot scoop out this block, lest it is ice-cream. All writers do face this, yet what is salient to remember is, not to pressurize oneself ; not to rush with it, unless you have a deadline to meet!
