Its the Story of those who are roaming everywhere in the search of Glory

Important note : This story is about a writer who is upset with the world . And just because this writer is upset he sees things with hatred because he thinks these people are responsible for his failures and tries to justify his feelings.

Writing a book is not that simple, it takes courage to write a book. Writing a book means you yourself become void and hollow. You put every thought, emotions, feelings, instincts, experiences on few lines of paper. To me it is an act of suffering. Sometimes your pen follows you and sometimes it ceases to reveal your undetermined emotions. Writing means becoming a criminal in your mind where your thoughts haunt you, where fear gets you everytime you try to escape, where your imagination falls into an endless limbo without aiming to touch the ground.

My question which I ask myself many times is why do I write? When writing something haunts me so badly. Why do I feel voidness in my soul? When I can't feed lines with proper words. Why do I cry? When i feel I can't write anything anymore.

When they(critics) say writing is an art which only few possess, I ask them how? I want to tell them it is neither an art  nor it is some talent, it is just a simple way to express your regret which has haunted you throughout your life. Regret is that compelling instinct which fills soul in the writing. To me writer is one who is unsuccessful in his life. When a writer can't achieve anything in his life he writes inspirational books. When he can't settle his life affairs, he writes fiction so that he can reason himself. When he wishes to master the nature and fails, he writes poetry. Hence writer lives in a universe where everything is followed by failures. 

Despite all this, sometimes when I am alone I think of becoming a great writer who is respected everywhere he goes, and for achieving it I had to be good at failures because failure represent how good I am at writing and how far can I go in this small universe of writers. I want to feel that pain which will help me to stray away from the norms of so called "modern society" so that I can always look at them with hate and hostility. So that I can deliver them the same pain with my feelings such that they will respect me just to keep themselves away from me. Only then I will be able to write what they call "Writing".

Wow. A powerful piece of writing. And English isn't your first language??? This is a piece of writing I need to read several times. It touched me when I read it first, and it touched me more the second time, and I need to read it more times. This is brilliant, please write more.

Hey great job! This is impressive writing :) I really enjoyed reading this. Do the world a favor and keep writing.
I have some discussion to add though in regards to the ideas in this. I hope I interpreted "Lost Ones" correctly so in response, I do believe that a writer doesn't have to exactly experience things they go through to use certain content in a book. It might be unethical in a few ways, but you can write most certainly without straying from the norms of society while delivering them that expressed pain only not looking at modern society with hate and hostility. Imagination is all you need to write and maybe a good few books worth of reading experience if you want to take it seriously.
Can't wait to read more.

This piece of writing. It is one that makes you think. Think of how you view things while you write. It also makes your emotions stronger. You wrote it in a way that many can relate with it. These are thoughts that probably go through most peoples heads weather they are aware of it or not. All in all, it is a brilliant piece that will touch many.

Thank you for entering this to my short story contest, and I apologize that I'm late in reviewing all the submissions.
This was a eloquent piece of writing that describe what most writers have experienced, especially during writer's block.
In terms of suggestions, I'd only say that the "important note" bit should be made obvious without it being explicitly stated, and that you might want to fix some of the grammar. I read in another comment that English is not your first language? It isn't mine either, so I understand that grammar mistakes are almost inevitable, but maybe you can ask for a friend's help? Just a suggestion. We're on the same boat :)

Thanks Veronica for reviewing my story and I am glad that you liked it. That was my first story and since then I have improved a lot. This process of improvement is helping me to find my voice. Now, one of my friend is helping me with my grammar which is good for me.
Thanks once again.
