WET, WITHOUT RAIN…..….
Do you know what a wink is? In a story, book or a poem, I mean.
A wink is a private message or joke inside a story that the writer shares with that person who’ll get it immediately!
I learnt this from a movie about a writer, the other day.
This, and many more intoxicating takes on writing…
One of my serious new year resolutions this year was to invest more time to learn writing.
And write more.
The year is into the middle of the first quarter and I still feel as motivated as I was that winter morning when I had written down ‘Read more about writing, and write more’ at the top of my list of “Stuff I’m gonna do this new year”.
Which, apparently statistically, means I’m far likelier to stick with this resolution well into the months ahead!
It, however, remains to be seen how bravely I manage to put my inspiration into words.
Talking of inspiration…there have been many.
Moments, words, gestures, a look, a touch, an unmindful comment, a letter…
Oftentimes the simplest of them all can prove to be the strongest, I believe….
