I have always loved to write. It came naturally to me. After higher secondary schools I started scribbling to improve perceptivity. The first law of behavioral psychology states :
You get more of what you reinforce.
If you write down an idea as soon as you get it, you reinforce the behavior of becoming more perceptive and increase your creativity. If you let it go unnoticed, you reinforce the behavior of becoming dull. I kept scribbling in my notebooks which kept growing in bulk as the time passed by. Managing them became an uphill task. I burnt many of them, sold them to peddlers and threw them at unknown places randomly, still, I could not exhaust them fully. They kept haunting me!
I started frequenting cyberspace in 2007-08 and then it became easier to record and share ideas online without having to manage them much. Later on, it metamorphosed into a Blogger blog and at last into a WordPress blog.
I write to gain clarity of thought process. I also write to share this clarity with others. I want to help others gain clarity and creativity. I want to inspire and motivate others to live a better life and writing is one of the most important ways of doing it. I believe we all make a significant impact on lives of people around us, with our words and actions. Writing to help others is something very soothing and healing for authors as well as readers and it makes world a better place to live.
