Writers Lament- Deadlines v/s Quality!

Posted by on Oct 19 2011 | Content Writing

One of the biggest challenges of any content writer arrives at the doorstep, obviously unwarranted and uncalled, when s/he is made to jump from one boat to another, heading for different unknown destinations. I say unknown because as soon as the writer can smell the air, s/he is shooed for its quest in another one headed to a completely different direction. Sailors are not the only one who lament because of parting with their loved ones, there are copywriters who mourn over their ordeal where they commit the sin un-writing the art of writing. With each line written having mere sentences and less of cerebral-ism, the writer questions the relevance of its existence.

An attention longing article clings to the writer and cries for meaning and a well structured identity rather than a fat humpty dumpty piece of content with superfluous flab deposited on every wrong part of the body. Articles writing is a craft that is sowed with seeds of love, thought and intellectuality and are not churned out like loafs of bread in a factory, that the famished can gorge on. The fine line of craftsmanship is gobbled up by gluttonous ogres and the writer is left starving.

There are various facets of a copywriter’s work that no ordinary professional can handle. From writing along with hundred different noises hitting the eardrum, although this way the brain learns the art of selective hearing to writing thousands of words and loosing track of what s/he even wrote in the beginning of the day. At the end of the day a copywriter is also a professional who deals with deadlines and emerges victorious. A writer’s utopia might seldom come but this hope keeps him or her going in wait for a day where their mind will not famish and will get to savour the dish created out of love and not necessity.

    Unfortunately people like me do not possess even a single trait that you have mentioned above in regards with a good writer ( in short people like you). However, no one can deny the fact that quality always crawls its way to make it to the desirable content demanded by the client. I dare disagree with you!!

    poetically put Isha, the writer’s profession goes much beyond the writing, straddling the two boats of quality vs quantity, life sure is not easy! Hope you have a constant source of inspiration to keep you going, all the very best :)
