One might attempt to sound intellectual by claiming to have hit the “writers’ block ”. Ever so often ,authors encounter situations when their brains get frozen,and hands refuse to write further .There comes a time when they can’t conceive a new plot,or fail to resolve a crisis situation to their creative satisfaction. Many a times, it is hinted, that words do not follow their thoughts, and it becomes impossible to pen the feeling down with a modicum of accuracy.

I cannot claim to be suffering from this fashionable, glamorous ailment.
What I rather suffer from is ‘blank’, rather than any ‘block’. For someone who has not written anything substantial, and who used to believe till recently that he had a lot to express, I can’t seem to zero-in on anything worthwhile to write about.It is not that I lack in experiences, or my awareness is of any less order than that of poets and poetasters.  It must be the absence of discipline, which according to every writer, is the most crucial trait one has got to possess to make progress in this line of work.

There is a subtle difference between being humble, and self disparaging. One must have certain ambition ,and always try to keep one’s confidence-level high if one is to write.It  takes a lots of guts and self-belief to put forth one’s written words in public circulation.Them masses are crazy.They are cruel and merciless.They lack in taste.They are your enemies. Sadism is their creed. Besides a lot is lost in translation, and this hurts proper communication.

Taking cue from the classical authors ,let me invoke my non-existent Muse,ever helpful with her convenient absence.May she inspire me with her lack of form and features.As for scope and ambition of my epic journey, its contours cannot yet be defined, everything being totally ‘blank’.
