When you are left with nothing much to do, writing is the right thing to do. But the thing is you need good thinking. How else can words tumble out from the shelf of life? While words don't have a shelf life and don’t get stale, they tell their own tale. Sometimes one gets the inkling that words worthy and rhyming is ready to flow. Luckily one doesn’t need ink but phones smartly can capture them. You only need to ‘app’ly MS word. It doesn’t mean that word has a gender. Unlike olden days one can enrol in writing workshops. Wonder if they teach how to manufacture words!
Challenge today is finding readers. As one Mr Bond, Ruskin puts you have more writers than readers. If you are in writing business, you would notice that there are numerous publishing houses who have made writing a business indeed. They ask you to buy a package using which you not only write but also market your books by spending money on promotion. Of course, the usual conditions apply. No guarantee if your books would be sold. The proof is in the readers you get. So, one cannot make a living out of writing but you can spend not only time but money while writing. Essentially it amounts to travel in business class in your journey of life. Yet another challenge today is that if your writing doesn’t lean to the right, you would be left with nothing but counting bars in a jail. The other bar of justice has gone into an ice age. In conclusion, writing is a mammoth task.
