THE CONFESSIONS OF A WRITER

2016-01-14 14:29

In an advanced definition of writing; writing is like a puzzle game where words form the puzzles. In order for one to work out this puzzle, one needs to carefully blend these words. With that in mind, the power of the greatest writer is determined by the capability to stylistically combine in an effective way, words that go together for a certain explanation of anything. From the beginning, writing has since been approved as a two sided mirror that reflects to the past and the present, with images that forms the future.

Ancient writers wrote of a powerful influence beneath the pen’s interpretation of the imagination, as a developmental method of understanding and expressing the living. Life exists in a space of the word; the word carries a language that can explain any form of life. As a result of writing, we can look at the future through the eye of the word as an imaginative binocular. It is clear that, writers possess a vital role in a society. In the capacity of the word, writers captures the mind of action and reaction.

However, as much as one would enjoy playing the game, one would expect to make a fortune by playing the game. As is the case with writing. For too long, writing has shown itself not to sustain as a career. Therefore, it became easy for gifted writers to look somewhere else to invest their time than in writing. There are brilliant writers, whose writing is a seminal work that continues to offer effective way forward, but they themselves, died in devastating poverty.

Recently, archaeologists were on a quest to discover the lost bones of Miguel de Cervantes, author of the adventures of knight-errant Don Quixote of La Mancha, almost four hundred years after he died penniless and virtually unknown. Not only him, there has been, and there are writers who attempt to make a living by writing, but their efforts become attended by the unfortunate reality to embody the notion of living life as a starving artist. To this far, they are motivated by Randy Pausch‘s critical observation that, “The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something.” Indeed, rejections and disappointments are what establishes the writer’s credentials.

Civilization is incomplete without the mind of a writer; a writer is a progressive asset in the formation of collective realization about the world around us. As for a writer, the page is the stage and the pen is a voice; for an artistic drawing of a vivid and melodious imagination. The creation of a broader understanding of life, comes from the writers endeavours of re-shaping and re-examining the accepted notions, for the formation of a new and advance dimension of understanding.

Its not hard to agree that, a writer is the memory that always reminds us about three worlds, the past, present and the future. The bearers of sharp intelligence that guides the nation to trace its way to development, through careful theoretical analysis. The primary essence of partaking in the discourse of critical thinking, is to delve deep in the parameters of the unknown to discover the unknown. This however, requires a particular quality of intellectual curiosity and devotion. It is this quality that affords the character of a formidable-writer. In that regards, the towering thinker is the one who’s mind can sprint beyond the measures of limit, in the pursuit of pushing back the frontiers of knowledge.

A scientific phenomena, It is mathematically impossible to adequately calculate the distance between a word and its meaning, because of the complex connotation beneath the word which accommodates no measurement of the word’s definition. However, through writing the word can measure time and distance in a naturalistic form. Knowledge responds to the word; the word is a vehicle of knowledge. For writers, writing is a weapon to break the barriers of ignorance and underdevelopment. The power to transform development is within the perspective of re-creating the strategic manoeuvre in the implementation of progress, interpreted by the agents of development.

In organizing a creative system of knowledge that is logically structured upon enlightening and enriching people, writers constitute a critical base in producing this knowledge. Writing is quintessentially a duty of mind and inner personality, a permanent philosophy of unending curiosity that will never be satisfied. Without the functional role of the writers, our understanding is filled with a void of ignorance. Against any odds, writers must continue to heal ignorance with their writing.
