They say, the writer lives in a lonely world of her/his own, dry surfing on the net, fishing for content without much human contact. But this is 2017, and the blogger of today is more like a wild and wide travelling entrepreneur.
Inspiration comes from watching the world go by in cafes and meet-up groups. Sitting cross-legged in front of a huge TV screen glued to the pole vaulting final! The airport lounge is now a hot place to pick up verbal gems. In fact, the jazzed up and perceptive writer recognises, we are living in a Bloggers Paradise.
Night and day, our insatiable hunger to get in the know and get connected is fed by the reel of events, actions and comments we follow and swallow, online and offline. With our brilliant writers imagination we spin it into our unique, personal style of word choice, colour and order.
Everyday, almost everyone you know is writing. Whether it is e-books or ‘real’ books, paper or digital news, scripts, plays, poems or musical lyrics…the rhythm and rhyme of the written word still flourishes on our planet. Yes, writing is still in fashion…and what a relief for those of us who just love the written word. It is indeed a Bloggers Paradise.

The Art of Writing has evolved and changed but putting words down on paper, electronic devices and serviettes will never go away…in my opinion!
