Published Here: Being A Mother [I-F]
Okay, this is not something of my usual genre. I just tried writing this down. I know I can never do justice with such delicate emotions, but I really tried.
This was just a achieve a bigger milestone in my writing. This was something...I needed to write down. To prove myself to myself. This was a challenge I had to face. This was something I wrote....not only for myself, but for my friends and readers.
Everyone has asked me that how can I explain and define love so deeply and beautifully [their words, not mine] when I haven't experience it yet. Many a times, I have been subjected to a lot of questions about love...'what is love'...'how can you describe love so beautifully'....'are you seriously not in love'...'you are lying, cause no one can describe love in such depth without feeling it'...etc etc.
And I literally had no answer to those innumerable questions. What to say? I myself didn't believed in my writing capabilities, and thought that whatever I write is plain crap...it doesn't makes sense...etc etc. Not anymore. Today, I realized something about my writing. Yeah, late, but better late than never.
I realized that as a writer, I can feel those emotions which are unknown to me in real life. I always kept myself at the character's place and wrote the whole scene, but never realized the symbolic meaning behind it. This one-shot proves that I can write and describe emotions, without feeling the need to actually feel them. So, next time anyone asks me if I have ever felt the specific feeling I described, I would gladly say 'yes, but as a writer'.
Please leave a review if you ever manage to go through this one-shot. I really wanna know your point of view on it.
