If it wasn’t for Shalini I would have totally forgotten writing about this book.
The book Go Giver is an amazing little book.Its true that good things come in small packages.I have written about the book many times.
Every time I get flustered or doubt my course ,I have a quick re-reading of this book.
Love the Home you have helped me at a time I was having a want to put down roots but there absolutely no way so I am sad syndrome.This book let me find happiness in a rented home too .My landlord is a gem.He never once complained about the balcony jungle that I have grown in my home.
Life is made up of every moment .Waiting for one day to shift to your dream house, may rob you of making a home with your loved ones.
Home is truly where the heart is.
The third book is on Writing Well by William Zinsser, is a treasure.It was recommended by Stephen King himself in his book On Writing.
Until we read people who write well , you never learn the craft.Its for that very reason I picked up this book .Stephen King had said if you don’t read other books,don’t expect people to read yours.
I am halfway through this book.One interesting thing the author said that stuck with me ,it’s difficult to write in first person .But we really need to practice that .Maybe not for all niche.But definitely try it out.It increases confidence in your own voice as the author.
Another snippet was about nonfiction writing,William , gives us snippets of random well written nonfiction even scientific stuff.He tells you to make it fun .Just because it’s a serious topic it need not be boring.I write a lot on health and disease The author advices not to make the mistake of taking things too seriously.If people get interested in what you write, a lot of faults get overlooked.But if it’s boring even if its well written,Its still boring
Those white pebbles in the picture are the left over from my aquarium bed.
And the partially visible figurine is of wisdom.
I once read in a book ,
I you have to choose between wealth and wisdom .Always choose wisdom.You can make and keep wealth when you are wise.But a fool and his gold is soon parted.
Have you read any of these books?
