Sorry people…. This post arrives a little late! As always an examination was behind this delay…
With little progress in my novel it’s impossible to post anything now. And cramming too much in my head for the exams have given me a severe case of writer’s block. (A Writer’s block refers to several dates, outings, movies with friends after exams). Maybe it’s very irresponsible to take these recesses over my sole dream of working hard for publishing a good book. But all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, right?
Anyways, I find this time great to read new books. You can’t ever get short of being inspired. Also it was important to watch Castle episodes during this time. How can an aspiring writer ever miss those greatly crafted sentences and amazing mysteries, fabulous one-liners.?
Taking a vacation off this blog when I hadn’t even started anything was a bad but involuntary choice. So this post is mostly filler for the time gap. And I’m working hard to think of a great new way to present my characters in the novel. Meanwhile, I’d like your two cents over which narrative is better – First or Third person?
What in world is a writer? That’s a question I will use to describe myself.
IF you are reading my blog I’m pretty sure you already know my name. Its Atul Aditya. I’m 16. I could have gone into the details of the origin of that name but its then a waste of words. Anyways I was saying what’s a writer… well first of all he’s someone who’s in love with language. Be it any language. He/She (I’m not a male chauvinist but since I’m a he, I’ll refer to the writer as a he.) will use all the words he has in his dictionary to make people fall in love with he has written… Every write-up of his is another valentine of his. I guess that’s pretty much it plots and details are attributes of a good planner and a person who is an excellent plotter and knows how to sell their goods.
So yes… I’m in love with a language and its English.. I love it as it offers me as much words as I’d want of the expressive or scientific quality, whatever I want.. I also like Hindi as it is one language which has words which one can use to easily show respect… but that’s not what I want the most. So for now, I hope you will bear with me for rest of my journey as I explore the English language through the means of a novel. I never said I was just a writer, I believe I’m a good plotter too. 🙂
Best Wishes Readers, I give them because I need it too.
