the write stuff

Ah, well, isn’t that why some of us spend substantial portions of our lives and internet bills on: trying to write something worthwhile on our blogs. For those who harbour hopes of writing for bread and butter, john scalzi has some good advice. Nice stuff.

back after a long time

Been a hell of a long time since degreecopy actually put some copy on the blog. Can be blamed on varying degrees of enthusiasm, or the lack of it, to be more precise. A new job and a hectic schedule haven’t helped matters. But I really, really need to find a way to squeeze in more words here, more frequently. Discipline is a useful trait to have if one wants to be a writer. Reminds me of rk narayan, and how he’d unfailingly write a few lines every day, while working on his first book Swami and Friends. The book turned out to be a masterpiece. I find it inspiring. Now, it’s time to roll up the sleeves and put some copy on this long neglected blog!;-)
