They tell me to write more. What should I write to them this time with brutal honesty? I think these are only stories that bind people together; for the reason that they appeal so strongly to feelings. Sensitivity; without being vulnerable to sensitivity one cannot write well because here is the thing, If you don't feel it, you can't write it.


There come brighter days, so do the dark ones. They bring with them feelings of every kind, that's why perhaps, writing comes in varieties. Each one adds up to another, and this is how we are made, of what we have experienced, felt, failed, learned, unlearned, and re-learned.


If you unlock yourself now, the pieces that hold you together may go back to where they come from, so if it was ever like, wherever we wish, we stay longer. Pile them up, here you are. We are stories in creation, stories told untold, and retelling. Unlock yourself, reach your roots.

That is what a writer does. You are a love story, a hidden lover, you may be a poet, an honest writer, a naturalist, a guide, light to someone, darkness to someone else, a wound in healing, a mess, fighting depression, felling lost to existential crisis or maybe all of them each different times We are all storytellers of our kinds too underestimated often, but that doesn't change anything. The reality is we all are authors, but only a few get published. But, I tell you this, and the noble task one can ever cherish doing is" write and write with brutal honesty".

Hello Dear Rakhshi,

How are you doing, Love? So, you're getting pressure to write more? I hear you. A person should be inspired to write, and, yes, always with honesty. I agree.

I hope you're doing well, and that you have a great week, dear!

Hello Rakshinda,
Indeed you are right, you write when it flows! And if you force it it shows. And when it flows, you write even if no body will read it. For we write to get words out, and if they are never read, the writing fulfilled its object.
When words don't come, I hope you can relax, with your self made cup of tea :)
