Is the writer in you sleeping?

Dear writer-in-you,
Come on now, wake up! Your slumber has been a long one! Have you forgotten that ‘the pen is mightier than the sword?’ It’s time to pick up your pen! The writer in you is just waiting to happen!
Yes, your hands must surely have become stiff and rigid from not writing. It’s OK. It’s never too late to start writing! All that you need is a few warm up exercises and you are all geared up for action! Ready, start! Stretch out your hands and fold them -3 times. Open and close your fists-5 times. Can you hear your knuckles crack and groan? Good. Now you are set to get into the act! Pick up your pen or your word processor and do the following exercises:

1. Look around you carefully. Absorb in your surroundings! Now put your pen to paper or your fingers to your keyboard and describe all about your surrounding!
2. Next, close your eyes. Think about a happy moment which still makes your heart miss a beat. Open your eyes and explain that feeling.
3. Now, look deep into your soul. Do you feel a hurt? A pain? A helplessness? A time when you thought your world around you crashed! Well, look up and put that sad feeling in writing.
4. Admire the flowers in your garden. Does your mind get filled with ideas about how to decorate them ? Well, dash off something about how to go about doing it.

Excellent! Your warm up writing exercises are done. Don’t you feel the writer in you utterly and totally awake? Do you feel the ideas rushing to your head? Aren’t you full of pep and enthusiasm? Don’t you feel like changing the world with your pen? Well, then, welcome to the world of writing! You are a writer in the making! Just go for it!
