Theme – A Reader or Writer … Which Would You Rather Be?
A Reader or Writer…Which would you rather be?
“A word is dead when it is said, some say. I say it just begins to live that day ~ Emily Dickinson”
I have always wanted to write…even before I was born. Hard to imagine and believe, right? But then, according to me writers are eccentric specimen, the good ones are a bit demented and the real writers are insane. I am no Emily Dickinson or Elizabeth Browning, but I do express my emotions with as much intensity as they did. It is not possible to write and be unemotional about life. Life is like a beautiful painting with its many hues and textures, a person who can appreciate all the vibrant colours and understand the artist’s mind, is a real writer.
When does a person decide to become a writer? Is there a ceremony which takes place and the world is informed about this decision of the writer? No, a person becomes a writer when she starts sharing her feelings about every little thing in life, with the world. She sees a flower bloom and comments upon its beauty, a poem is born and so is a writer. A friend moves to a different city, she writes about the separation, a writer appears. She loses a loved one; she grieves and out of her tears is born a writer.
“I love thee to the level of everyday’s most quiet need by sun and candle light…I love thee with the breath, smiles, tears, of all my life~ Elizabeth Browning”
I can’t imagine feeling something and not writing about it, I am alive when I write. Books keep me company, I love reading and become a character in the book that I’m reading at the moment, sometimes it’s fun when the book is a happy, nice, and romantic one but it’s scary to be in the plot of a murder mystery or horror story.
I have a million stories I want to share with the world, and I will live even after I am long gone. Though I wear both the hats, of a reader and writer, writing is what keeps me going and saves my soul from corroding.I will end with a beautiful quote by my favorite author Emily Dickinson.
“He ate and drank the precious Words, his Spirit grew robust; He knew no more that he was poor, nor that his frame was Dust~ Emily Dickinson”
