- Write 50 words . That’s a paragraph.
- Write 400 words . That’s a page.
- Write 300 pages. That’s a manuscript.
- Write everyday. That’s a habit.
- Edit and Rewrite. That’s how you get better.
- Spread your writing for people to comment. That’s called feedback.
- Dont worry about rejection or publication. That’s a writer.
- When not writing, read. Read from writers better than you. Read and Perceive.
But overall, just write more to get better.
1000+ votes on Quora!! Probably my most viewed content ever (besides my Poem on Michael Jackson)
Some monks pray
Some monks dance
Some monks drink
All monks hope for a second chance
I have played all
kinds of funny games
Been to all kinds of places
Called all unkind names
The thrill of the chase
The prospect of romance
is rarely expressed in thudding crashes
More often expressed in dance
Here comes tango
There goes hip hop
Ballroom dancing for the propah
Disco dancing for the lower crop
This monk got grace
It helps he has style
For very soon he will start sweating
Because he has not practiced in a while
While the forbidden and elusive
Pleasures of the flesh are often the downfall
Of talented men who began to crawl
Dancing never killed anyone
and no one got killed dancing.
The wars the fights and the peacock struts
Have continued since mankind begun
Choose your arena, choose your weapon
Dancing shoes or the barrel of a gun.
Music heals what people hurt
Poetry steals what movies covet
Paintings end up hugging stony walls
But dancing above all is in the moment
Transitory like a flutter of a piano sheet
Dance now or forever hold your feet.
Review= Love Bytes
I was here in Taj Vivanta,Mumbai India, as a guest and I caught up with a lovely new age play called Love Bytes.
Directed and written by Divya Palat http://www.divyapalat.com , this play explores the emotional turbulences of the digiterati, the Facebook status changes, and the complete life cycle of the supply chain of love.
From teenage puppy love, to double income 1 kid, to geeky nerd afraid to talk to the beauteous girl in office,and the live in couple with no pressure to marry – this s when Harry met Sally plus Its Complicated all mashed together with anthemic rock songs between the acts.
I loved the humor and the satire though the second act did drag on my nerves with the puns on African American rappers, extinct parsis species, and mild homophobia in father son relationships. One solo act stood out for the funny words..
Welcome brave new world of Bollywood.
Or maybe I should say Bollyway-wood.
