Hello, once again. Every once in a while I write about the meaning of what I write, just to refresh the memories of the old followers, and to enlighten the new ones. I feel that I need to do it, just to resolve a few questions, and to make you think about chocolate donuts. There, now you’re thinking about chocolate donuts.
Why do you write?I get asked this question a lot. I write because I feel like. I do what I want to. And if what I want to do is write, then I write. Sometimes I don’t entirely feel like writing, so I either listen to Pink Floyd or play my guitar or take/make pictures or even read. Reading is still my favorite hobby. It always was. Recently I saw a book lying on the table called ‘Wizards’. I remembered; it was one of my favorite books and so I randomly shuffled it till I chanced upon a page that looked good enough to read. It was a short story that had always been one of the best short stories I’ve read. Simply because the characters in it provide a dark insight of life that you rarely find in a children’s book. My favorite excerpt from that story is the following paragraph:
It is through reading that I have acquired this magnificent talent of writing. And it is through writing frequently that I have gained this wonderful talent of embellishment of random happenings of life.
You write quite well. But why do you have a blog?Well, a blog is a space on the internet that is free from the constraints of mainstream websites such as facebook and internet forums, where you have to abide by certain rules. I don’t like rules. If it was possible, I’d build a rocket-ship out of soda bottles and glycerol, and attach it to a gyroscope with an inbuilt GPS system, so that I can launch it towards any rule book and annihilate it. Problem solved.
I hate your blog!
