Heena Rathore P.

Every writer, whether they are big or small, experienced or newbie, published or unpublished, old or young, face the same fears and feel jittered before putting their work in front of the public (books, articles or any other content.)
What are these fears? What are the reasons that demotivate writers from writing? And finally, how to get over them and come out as a winner and go ahead with writing?

If you’re looking for answers to  these questions then go ahead and read.


10 Things That Are stopping You From Writing:

#1 Self-doubt

Self-doubt is nothing but a state of mind, just like confidence. But its one that can either stop you from growing or completely destroy you.

Nuclear weapons and the world – Jorge Castillo

Nuclear weapons and the world

With a Nuclear bomb
anyone can blow a country out of the world.
the world doesn’t know what to do
so we will see a proliferation a powerful nukes.
With a bomb like that, in the wrong pair of hands
human destruction is certain as death.
After the first shot is fired,
no matter who started
no matter who is to blame
half of us will end in heaven
the other half in hell.
We all will remember what once
Einstein foretold
the war after this
will be among a few of us,
and we will end battling with sticks and rocks.

Jorge Castillo, July 2015


Sharing a poem to spark your creativity. Keep writing!

Spoken Word Poetry, Art & Haiku in fun mini series...New York City.


A love lost,
Drifted in the past,
Reflections becomes lust,
Once gone but now has come back,
Trapped by the good times,

So hard to move on,
Want to try once more,
But on which day and how long?
I see her in passing,
She still has that special while,
Walked the same route,
Hoping to she her again,
Rather than once in a while,
I smile at her in passing,
Wanting to express how I am feeling,
But I can’t rescue the past,
My body needs some spiritual healing.
