As I try hard to quench all my creative juices to come out with something really very interesting, I was struck by this weird idea of taking a dig on the art of writing. Calling it an art seems to be too obvious for most of us, but did we ever take the pains of regarding this act of creative carnival as a science too? No wonder most of you would now be frowning on the weird pint of view that I have just put forth in front of you, but it will be quite interesting to reveal the fact. Although it won’t be that easy for me to impress each pair of eyes reading this!
It’s really wonderful how a human mind works and cultures such a myriad number of ideas in a lifetime of a human being on this earth. Each and every human travels through a distinctive journey of life. The balance between the bitter ones and the sweet ones varies on a large scale. Don’t forget that the human civilization has been fortunately or unfortunately divided into the dual class of existence – male and female. Whether you take the physiological or the psychological aspects, both are similarly different. Not all cerebral entities are gifted with the sword of penning down the visible experiences that tend to shape themselves in disparate stories on a piece of paper. Our eyes and our mind always start wondering and pondering on just one thought – how did that writer bring all that experience in such a beautifully explained story? So, ladies and gentlemen, that’s writing as an art for you. Not everyone can match the depth of Arundhati Roy or the thought provoking ability of Salman Rushdie (I can remember these two names only, for the moment; please use a bit of your own knowledge also).
A small bunch of friends come to your house and you serve them with your first ever made ‘French omlette’ to them. A silent bedlam will definitely haunt you immediately, but some of your good friends may not admit that you have just broken the record of making the most horrible omlette in the world. When you are pouring out your refined creative lubricant in the form of words, it is very important to remember that someone else will dig in his/her eyes to read the write-up that you have just popped out of your mind. Many writers need the balls to write some irritating stuff for their readers. Well, I just can’t comment on how many people do have those balls and how many of them don’t! There are many ways of making a write-up readable. Multiculturalism is evidently found on this planet. Thus, the tastes for reading also vary to great degrees. Clamoring down all the ideas haphazardly never leads a writer to reach the heart of the reader. Knowing the audience is extremely important to ensure about the subject on which one should work upon. For some writers, region is as important as the tone of the write-up. Being abreast with the latest interest of the people all across the world is another factor which makes a writer travel through the tougher terrains of developing the pack of words where he/she leaves no space for a chance. At the end of the day, all are humans and most of us have the same old habit of craving for more!
There are numerous evidences in the history of the human civilization where art and science have merged to create magic. In the profession of writing too, this amalgamation is extremely necessary to pull out the curtains of true human experiences and tell the world about the fascinating story of human mind and its ability to create mansions of limitless imagination.
