Which books did you love growing up? Which poems? I grew up mainly reading comic books, the first being Batman, my all time favourite fictional character. Oh did you know he turned 75 today?
Do you remember your first original composition? What was it? How did you feel while writing it?
I can’t pin-point to what, just it was a drawing or painting since I did that a lot back in the day. However this is one piece which I’m very proud of, which I wrote when I was in school in 2004.
Did you secret your writing away or share it with family and friends?
I basically wrote for myself whenever I did. Still do. Alas not many are interested in it though. 😛
What sort of writing do you enjoy doing best? Fiction? Nonfiction? Creative Nonfiction? Poetry? Memoir? Other?
I enjoy creative writing. Mostly non-fiction for now. And whenever I have an epiphany (which I usually do) and aphorisms now and then.
What are your writerly aspirations? Do you write for yourself, or to become published?
For now just for myself, and have no desires to be published as an author as such. However I would love to travel around the world and document my travels/adventures someday, which is actually my long term aim. Now only the universe knows how I’m going to get there.
Why do you write?
Because I feel free.
What keeps you writing?
I just do, not much of an explanation I have I’m afraid.
Do you have a daily writing practice? Tell us about it.
For now I only follow The Daily Post and it’s writing prompts such as this one. While still have a long way to go, I’m happy to somehow keep myself alive everyday, and keep improving. 🙂
Okay, that was because, seriously, the nearest book to me is in fact a blank notebook which I just got today earlier, blank in the sense totally blank, not even ruled! This must be some kind of joke which the force is pulling on me right?
Well, here is a picture I shared much earlier, of just an amount of books I have which I can see just above/in front of me when I sit at my work station.
If I get to choose, it would be Walter Isaacson, who is known for his biographies of Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein and Steve Jobs. But first I’d have to do something worthwhile, so far nothing worth (or appropriate) writing.
Apart from the title with too much Ts, my not-so-great humour and the above video with a guy sitting and walking (and floating) across different places playing an instrument whose name I had to Google search, what entered my mind was:
I’m also mostly a vagabond to my current capacity. While I consider myself an ‘aspiring traveler’ so far I ended up going to a few places and mostly I too walk on the streets.
Without an instrument or fancy gimmicks though. Heck I don’t even know to play a single instrument despite how rock n’ roll or metal head I look. I prefer any and all kind of music as long as I enjoy it. Same goes for other things as well.
I have spent all my time don’t know what I’m doing or what I want most of the time. Well, walking takes time too though.
Well, you must be thinking that the song/video is called as ‘Time Traveler’ but had more to do with space, as most of what I wrote right? Well both are so inter-related as a matter of fact (it’s a science thingy, called space-time continuum, but let’s not go there)
Hey don’t click that wikipedia link (yet), BE HERE.
That being said, in short, I don’t know how time flies nor I spend too much time (or any as a matter of fact) thinking about what happened. Guess I’m so hopeless in the moment right?
My daily mantra.
Well, traveling in time or otherwise, that video reminded me of how the most powerful ‘thingy-s’ in life are so simple. Or maybe I’m the wise guy who always knew it and giving it too much credit which it doesn’t deserve.
With enough of space-time thingy (what a nice word not to use anytime conveniently when you don’t know the particular term associated with something, even when people are so lazy now that they don’t bother to look it up despite being on the internet, let alone in real life) here is something for your entertainment if you didn’t knew already, if you don’t read comics but are an avid reader (then for who knows what misguided reason you don’t read comics) of literature then you should check this comic series called Deadpool: Killustrated, based on the fan favourite character Deadpool who is known for Breaking the Fourth Wall. Here in these stories, this guy is bored and with nothing to do (in a manner of speaking) goes around traveling in time and butchering famous novels in literature. Hell fun (or should I say ouch). 😀
Thanks for reading. Now you may *click click* on those links I provided for more of your knowledge. 😛
Alright I haven’t done something like this before and there is always a first time so, I need your help, the readers across the realm of the internet this time. A direct interaction with the virtual citizens of the internet. Well sort of. Help me writing my next post, and well get to know a bit more about you (whoever you maybe). 😀
Tell us about a book you can read again and again without getting bored — what is it that speaks to you?
I don’t know what to answer for this. Actually there are many which I’ve read multiple times. But I tend not to do that as I rather read new and more stuff than the same ones again. Besides in recent years didn’t do a lot of reading so need to focus on that first.
