It feels wonderful to be a part of an industry that you have always wanted to be in. Writing has been my passion since a long time now. I am happy that I began my career in this field. I shall travel all the way and I now wish to achieve the heights of my career in writing. I have come across many who say that writing is actually a monotonous career and the growth is slow. But I have believed that there is always a growth for you in a career that you have selected by your own and not forcibly. For all those who feel that this is a monotonous world well, actually it is not! This is one of those careers where every day is a challenge, and every learning is an experience. There are many chapters that remain for you to explore. When you are doing a work that you have always liked doing, work becomes fun for you. When your professional work is equal to your hobby; you can any day expect a masterpiece.
Writing is something that requires the art of convincing people. Writing doesn’t work on the philosophy"if you can’t convince them, confuse them”. In such case, “they” (your readers) shall never ever come back to get convinced. Writing in simple words is creativity, adventure, fun, and even an intelligent word game for many. After attending some training sessions on writing, I came across some really good and new ideas by the trainer. According to him, playing with jumble words can actually give you many ideas on framing of word while writing. This ensures that there is no repetition of words when you are writing. More ideas put by the writer in the write-up encourage a good readability.
It often happens that when a writer is writing on abstract topics, the ideas get blocked after sometime. The best way to come out of this situation has been a question mark for many. Different people deal with such situations in a different way. I feel that your writing is your communication that you establish with your readers. When you have stopped and are thinking what to write, make it a communication happen. It is true that in a communication ideas don’t easily stop, especially when you have so much time to think over it.
Many feel that taking up writing as a career blocks the required liberty that they enjoy in writing outside their work. To some extent it does but to a larger extent it doesn’t. Writing as a career also enables research. When you wish to communicate with people to the best of your knowledge, you don’t mind having some from an external source. The external source informs and inspires you and you inform or inspire others. The same goes with writing. Also, instructions frame a path for the flow of your writing. To be able to write well in spite of minimal instructions is also a challenge that a writer has to take up at some point of time in his/her career.
There is a writer hidden in each one of us! There are feelings deep embedded in our hearts. If such feelings come out in form of words then they can not only make pleasurable reading but also inspire others to write. So, the next time when you say writing is a monotonous career, think more than once!- Shruti !
