On Writing

When nothing to write, embrace bad ideas. You’ll never know. It’ll end up so well that you won’t be able to fathom what you wrote. It might even end up as a surprise.

Given that a person is wired to think about two to three ideas per minute, give your mind a chance to express itself. When you write, don’t impress. Express.

Writing in itself is even an expression of a person’s state of mind in a particular period of time. If your ideas get caught up with the stampede of upcoming ideas, write them down. The human brain is just so beautiful that you cannot comprehend its beauty. Heads up, though. Once you get oblivious with an idea, don’t over-express yourself with it. Embrace it; then, move on.

This leads me to the movie, “A Beautiful Mind“.

From the heights of notoriety to the depths of depravity, John Forbes Nash, Jr. experienced it all. A mathematical genius, he made an astonishing discovery early in his career and stood on the brink of international acclaim. But the handsome and arrogant Nash soon found himself on a painful and harrowing journey of self-discovery. After many years of struggle, he eventually triumphed over his tragedy, and finally – late in life – received the Nobel Prize. Written by Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures

Also, remember this. When the immortal adversary (writer’s block) gets on your way, block it. Or rather, thrash it. Beat it hard!
