What causes writer’s blocks (5)?

It has been more than seven years now, I have been writing a lot, more than a lot will be the appropriate term, in all these years I have never suffered from writer’s block.

Sometimes I don’t write, deliberately, when I am kidnapped by outside world.

My suggestion to those who suffer from writer’s block-

Though we have a tendency of being engrossed in our own little worlds we should come out of it, and read the works of others seriously, I have often written really neat posts that has popped up in my mind after reading the titles of other people’s posts, the titles can truly become source of fantastic posts 🙂

Anyways, if you keep a close relationship with other writers you will only benefit.

My suggestion to those who suffer from writer’s block-

Don’t limit yourself to one method of jotting down your works, often that robs us of our really good ideas, keep a diary, a writing pad everywhere in your home, wherever you spend lot of time. You know, we writers mostly cant have writer’s blog all day long, we just sometimes are too busy to jot down the idea we should be mulling upon, they pop up when we are washing the dishes or watching movies.

If trying is like hitting your head against a brick wall start editing your old works, often, quite often a brilliant idea pops up. I sometimes start writing a brand new, nothing like the edited story story!

“White autumn cloud boats sail in deep blue sky, echoing the footsteps of Mother Goddess as she heads towards earth.”- Its a Bengali quote translated. Hope you will enjoy the difference!

Autumn is very special in Bengal too, the province of India where I live, because of Durgapuja, Bengal’s biggest festival which will be held from 6th October for five days this year.

So my poem dedicated to Bengal Autumn for you-

The rain clouds still rumble
bidding goodbye.
The sky is filled with dazzling
white clouds that sail like mountains,
from one end of blue ocean
to the other.
The white Kash flowers bloom everywhere,
to announce autumn is here,
the coral jasmines are blooming
filling up the evening air,
under the twinkling stars
in the cool, crisp nights
they talk of Agamani,
the footsteps of the revered one
ringing in the distant skies,
and in their pure petals.

(Agamani means coming of Durgapuja mostly, Bengalis are extremely sentimental (and obsessed) about this puja (worshipping of a deity), since time immortal!)

Love.
