Imaginations brought into paper
Thoughts woven into words
Ink turned into life
A writer’s story.
What does a writer need more than a pen and a paper and deep feelings to pour in? Moreover, his high level of observation of the things happening around him and in his life, create all the stories he write. Ain’t it?
I wonder, how beautifully the imaginations are fancied in mind and heart, and brought in paper, how perfectly the thoughts are transformed into words. Consequently, the entire story is expressed in few words to the readers. And how great it is when whole world resonates with the writer and his words. The world responds to the story as if it has lived the story. The bibliophiles relates to the story as such the they dwelled in between the lines. And we tend to live the protagonist lives. Sometimes, after reading a great book, I see myself living in the same circumstances. And I do dream about it too. I find myself so immersed in books. Writers have such heart in writing that they pull us in their awe. It gets unputdownable and mesmerising.
I came across a quote which I found so authentic in terms of any writer’s life and for a literature lover,
“The purpose of literature is to turn blood into ink.”
The ink turns into a life. A livable life. How true and beautiful.
The fact that has been impressing me the most since years is the versatility. Writers write so well, that we lose ourselves in each and any kind kind of genre. When I read the book, “Chasing Red” by an author, Isobelle Ronnin, I found myself captivated by the hero of the novel, Celeb Lockhart. It has been time I have read that book, but it feels I’m still ensorcelled by his magical charm. The science fiction “The Time Machine” by H.G. Wells took me to varying worlds of past, present and future. In fact, I dreamt a lot about it.
And my current read, “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Brontë has taken me in its gloomy state. It is teaching me a lot about life reality and experiences. How doleful it can be for someone without his family and acquaintaces, how world treats you in the same condition. So it goes like that. Nothing can be a great benefactor like a good book from an influential author.
