A collection of musings , opinions, contests and matters of general interest.
"Advise is for others to follow" , I recalled this famous adage when I came across a post on our writing.com . Yes it's true it gets a cold reception unless it's followed and demonstrated by the advisor him/herself. It's an evergreen truth more so with the present-day community leaders and politics . I got tempted to write on it for contemplation .

November 10, 2020 at 4:23am
My Blog Writing Style. My writing style depends on how it started, whether it was prompted by a given set of requirements or it was out of the urge to write something without any requirements or prompt given. If it is against a prompt or a subject specified I write a draft or a layout plan surrounding the requirements consisting of a frame work. An essay is planned on a frame like objective, scope of the essay, my points in support of or against it. Then the concluding points.... [Read more]

November 18, 2020 at 8:12pm
Word "Review" in my legend with regard to a "Writing".

Laughing to myself, was amused how an idle brain works! A read hungry tom! When I conscientiously tried to follow Mark Lewy author of “Accidental Genious” , at l... [Read more]
