Time When Stories Born
It's not a JAM(Just a minute) where you cook up a story and deliver it as a bullet train also adhering to stringent grammatical rules ! It's not the caravan of life loaded with weapons to write and you go on. It's when you start the journey to explore being in ruins of a vehicle.
Difficult to make out the exact time n situation when the stories born.
They arise you are drowning in deep agony of something,when you feel jealous or happy or may be for no reason, of course ! It's not the brilliant writer who brings out the polished ideas into well framed sentences but the common inner you who explores or explodes ignoring the grammatical and linguistic barriers.
Stories are nothing but the honoured ideas or dreams. Flow of thoughts solidifieng in cooling confidence you show them. Great stories are not built overnight. They are just rewarded
ides which visited some one's mind sometime. Thoughts don't differentiate
between people and they keep haunting everyone. They keep haunting unless
you hunt them and kill one inner you as useless.
Stories are not born when you finish some populars like Chethan, aravind, amish or preeti or fictions of sydney,dan or paul. Ofcourse they nourish inner you and inspire to write but it's the time when you start exploring yourself. Words disappear, memory starts cheating and sentences may not appear when you try to pen down something. But when you cool down and provide the warmth of confidence to the inner you who wants to explode and explore .. nano stories are born.
Stories are like babies. They born when they wish, unless you abort them for hundreds of earthly reasons.You need not be a psycho to be a writer or a looser to be a poet. If you allow your mind to flow free as wind, stories will born.
One of my senior says that we are surrounded by people with identity crisis. Baby cries for identity, grand ma shouts for identity.. But story suffocates in its womb when you are overloaded with identity crisis. Expecting appreciation for every word you write is something like planting a seed and digging it up every now and then to see whether it has rooted or not. The people who allow their ideas to settle as stories like mud settling in glass of dirty water will have clean water at the top after
sometime.There may be disturbed ideas like minuscule particles in muddy water which need their own time to settle down in order for cool story to evolve.
There is one more virtual law . As the length of story increases, interest to read that decreases! Exception is when you transcend your ideas so well that reader transforms to you while reading your story..A Healthy baby is assumed to born when that happens.
