Most of our thoughts make us feel comfortable. Some are inspiring. "Never give up." "You'll be a success." Some thoughts upset us. "I've made this stupid mistake again." "I give up." And, some thoughts are those of happiness. "It's a wonderful day." "I love life." These words are here for us. They are there for us after someone writes them down for others to see or later to read. Perhaps, these were not even words. They were scratches on the bench or on a wall. When the reader sees these, even these writings can be transmitted with power in a bright shining moment in time that are brought to us as the masterpieces of our own history.
Yes, now you can imagine how long, or short, it takes to create anything touching by means of words. This is the most important role in writing. Reach the reader's heart, to understand and to be understood. This sounds like a definition of communication. And, yes, art is a craft to not leave a person cold. What's going to happen if it does leave someone indifferent? First, the author is left alone with his interpretation. That makes him and the reader cold to life. Second, a person seeing no interest in art is lost, I personally think. At the same time, there are millions of bits and pieces of art and there is no way that you will not find something that you like.
The art of writing is the art of transforming words into worlds, but, not only the words. Graffiti artists are called writers, because they bring their messages in painted words on billboards, walls, and trains.
It's tempting enough to seek to plant deep inside someone a thought or thoughts through writing. Being a writer can be creating worlds our reality may have never seen. Inner and outer worlds on paper can impact the best part of people and make an everlasting name for a writer.
IAM ®. I am. I admit that I have this longing for a line or two just to see what it looks like, how it feels. More than often, we have real reasons to write, not a habit but a true excuse. This intention may be based on great feelings that we had or those which recently have tasted very bitter. So, this writing becomes a remedy, an elixir, a panacea. Mostly, the misunderstanding between the world and the talent is the key to writing. The writer brings this key to his readers. The story will be a success.
Something like this:
"Our friend is 16. Those are some of the most creepy and happy times ever in his life, at least, a lot to remember. He starts his curing from the small stars in the right hand corner. They are small, tiny, in a black color spectrum, shining inside out. All the pain he possesses, he cages in them who give a look of terror. And then, he's running. He's running down the lines. He's running down the lines faster and fiercely to leave the feelings inside of the word's bodies, never to meet them again. But, the lines are never over and the aspiration is infinite. Pushing so hard to the heart to cry the feelings out on the lines. And, after a stroke, it beats. And, it beats again, to lose the pain and to be understood, to be touched and to be remembered once again by someone who can."
Just admit it to yourself, each one of us has been a writer at least once. It is natural to uncork those feelings, not to bottle them all up inside which will try to explode. It really does not matter what the reason for writing is. It could be to write: a report, a grocery list with a tiny message of love, a true to the heart love letter, a poem never to be seen, a story to be told, a note to inspire, or a song to reach. When the moment comes to write, we bring it out of our chest, out of our head, and place it into the world, in such a beautiful way, writing, the world would grow a bigger heart and become a special place to be.
From now on, if there is something you cannot cope with: a bill, a task, a headache, an embarrassment, a mistake, a heartbreak, a frustration. Don't keep it unfulfilled. Don't allow it to be forgotten. Don't let if fade with an alcohol cocktail and 36 hours because your genuine feelings are precious. They are gifts which can be written, painted, sung, or said. And, if there be no way that you can put them down, just go find someone to share them with and not be alone. Go to the library. Look through history. You will find an author who can really understand how it does feel and has been understood. There is no emotion that people cannot share. They are the same but they are real and there are different ways to express them.
"And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt." Sylvia Plath
