I have written a book. Read it. Spend time on my words. Because I deserve your attention. Yes, a writer wants to stress self-importance. But how that author is supposed to get someone to listen without a meaningful ethos. That is right. The essence of writing remains in exploring wisdom first instead of searching for readers.
For most, earning the title of a successful writer is the sole purpose behind penning a text. The reason is this big chunk chooses writing as a career choice. But, the million-dollar question is, will a writer always find something to say? Will he become anymore ready to appreciate silence again for empowering the strength of thinking?
The truth is some people think of themselves as more intelligent than others. They believe that reaching the elite title of good writer means no need for further exploration of sagacity. That means from now they could draw anything, including a dumb perception, to attract people.
However, they forget that human intellect always runs for wisdom. And writers become special only when their texts voice that insight. That means the presence of intelligent perception itself will attract readers. And there is no need to search for viewers first.
In the era of marketing strategy, some writers always pen words for drawing pennies. There are instances to show how umpteen authors appear with an enterprise-minded mentality. The concluding words of their books even don’t hesitate to aim at the viewers. These words demonstrate how writers take pride in their own words by mentioning that the text is valuable. Even they further say that readers should gift those books to their friends. This dull yet candid confession as the purpose behind penning a book, no doubt, kills the essence or need for drawing wisdom in the form of text.
Books containing more than 200 pages with a sparkling book cover could get labeled a standardized stereotype. Also, an unusual title signifying so many chapters between introduction and conclusion is undoubtedly appealing. Even this strategy may serve some initial purposes. But lacking relevant materials can’t deliver any positive impact. Instead, it makes readers get sandwiched between the chapters. And in the long run, it unlocks uncertainty regarding its acceptance.
A writer finds it easy and worthwhile to pinpoint a trending topic as writing material. However, elaborating on the subject with relevant points is not as easy. To address this issue, the author splits the entire text into several paragraphs to make it seem as if filled with thoughts abound.
The bitter part is that the journey of said elaboration looks like unfolding in accord. It includes paraphrasing from other writers’ words. Even sometimes, repetition of the same paragraph becomes apparent. In truth, the writer looks in a hurry to meet the publisher’s deadline. And the reason behind this hurried effort is to make a living only.
As a reasonable human being, the writer may understand that it is nothing but wasting time. However, he is bound to pave that flawed way to earn cents in exchange for a text. To expect a profound insight in the shape of a brilliant depiction of ideas consistently is indeed impossible here. The writers here emerge more like machines than wisdom explorers.
Only a regular comparison with the classic books written in the past centuries indicate the difference between real artistry and current machine-minded professionalism in drawing ideas. The classic creations over the centuries remain resonated with readers. Eminent authors of these texts spent ample time revising their words. They never felt the rush for publicity. In addition, no deadline was there for them to decorate the books shelves with at least one new book annually.
But with changing times, writers feel more attached to quantity over quality. A rat race has engulfed the arena. And authors now run for producing more and newer to beat their peers. They don’t mind whether or not their writing is beneficial to even a single reader. For them, writing is more like a readymade recipe to serve its customers.
However, despite all these bitter realities, real authors still exist. Their mode of penning words shows how they deliver writing out of passion. They toil hard to craft their words with intellect. Even they feel the urge to spend sufficient time revising again and again only single writing. They aim to give birth to a piece of wisdom that itself brings visitors without any extra effort.
To craft a good insight through words needs no specific age limit. Writing is a process of learning. The more a person learns, the more he can enrich his power of writing. Also, waiting to reach a certain age to accumulate experience before starting writing is like living in a fool’s paradise. Yes, penning words need the urge first, not the time.
There is no past, present, or future to writing words. It needs the impulse or desire to embrace writing. And if the feeling remains inexperienced, writing itself molds that unpractised perception into an experienced insight. The writer only needs the confidence that penning sagacity is powerful enough to bring visitors.
He first writes for himself to understand whether his words can appeal to his sense of wisdom. And searching for readers is, for him, a waste of time. The reason is nobody knows what point when appeals to which reader.
In short, it means that the feeling of satisfaction should come first from the author’s inner soul. Attaining fondness from own words is much more necessary than making others happy. True joy comes from the effort, not from the outcome.
