Who am I???
Where am I from???

Where do I live???
What is my name???(first and last)
Well, my poems tell you who I am,
Well, my words tell you where I am from,
Well, iota of guess and observation will help you know how I earn my bread and butter,
Well, I admire your interest in knowing all about me although you are a stranger,
Your time and interest landing in the right place could fetch all that you want to know,
While I am glad to write to the world where there’s no place for judgement and no space for un-reasonable prejudices…
I was asked by a stranger in quite a uninviting tone and so firm their perception remained although I agreed to help them promote their first book for free in the possible ways I know of..
If you are someone who is curious about anything at all other than my work, I am done with you..
Life is too short to be worrying about those who judge you; Be who you are and you don’t judge others. That’s the least we can all do. Everything else will fall into place. After all, mocking, judging tends to make us pretend more and more and we end up with lost self-consciousness.
Whether it was the 18th or the 20th, we all fear when we write; The sole reason being the judgmental opinion of a reader surpasses the confidence issue in a writer.“Do you fear about what you write or you are just worried that something might go wrong when you start to write?” I must say, it is the fear that pulled me back; When I started my first book, I asked myself “Am I really a writer”?, At that point there wasn’t much to throw away my fear except just smile and forget.
All I can say is go on there and don’t look back; The day you write without fear and write your heart and soul into the book, You have got all the answers; You can write for hours worrying and without a benefit of doubt I must say, it won’t be good enough.So, Go on and write definitely with a positive setback and you’ll fly high. There is no doubt and no fear.
Writing is an art and Poetry is so good that it is incomplete. When I write, I literally feel their soul, be it about an animal, human emotions or non-living.
What comes out is never in a Writer’s hand;It could be rough, very vague sometimes too cold to bear.
When you read something, you tend to co-relate to the subjective character and believe being him/her or anything that reflects a similarity or on the contrary a difference.
I guess that could be the main reason why we don’t perhaps connect to a book or author all the time?
I wonder the factual or hypothetical or phenomenal or whichever suits the mindset of a individual to judge a book be it the cover image or the author.
How can our expectations and false implications justify someone’s thorough work of thoughts.
My first book happened to be a piece of cake work apart from the time and the passion i felt while writing. My publisher took care of everything and all I got to do was promote in my own ways, share in the social media and try my luck out. It worked pretty good.
I got mixed notions and reviews from the readers. For some, it was all about the book cover that was appealing even after they were done with the book. For the rest, a blend of both and for others, it was pure justification of the deep insight of my thoughts.
Perception differs from time to time and from one to another. My second book sales are pretty slow though the story line and my work seems to be taking its charm. Its out there on amazon but I all get is judge the book by its cover.
