“You never have to change anything you got up in the middle of the night to write.” quotes Saul Bellow. That’s the beauty of writing. There will be moments when you won’t be able to write no matter how hard you try. And there will be moments when you will stop in the middle of the day and start pouring it all out on the paper. In the middle of the night, you’ll leave thoughts on your pillow and the paper would scream for you. Writing is something which occurs to you when you’re walking a lane, when you’re sitting in the bus, when you’re watering your plants, when you’re in the shower and even when you’re cooking!
You learn how to be where you want to be with writing. You learn to lose control and hold on to it at the same time. And the journey goes on. It takes you to places you can only imagine otherwise. In fact, for me, so far in life, writing has been the best companion. And I’m sure, so it has been for many.
So the team at Ink Drift got carried away in the discussions one day and realized how busy we have been in framing the good stuff together from all around the world that we forgot about ourselves. Yes, we used to be writers long back, way before we gave birth to Ink Drift. We were missing the writers inside all of us. So we decided to bring the memories back and spill some beans on the paper this month. Henceforth, Ink Drift brings you the June issue prepared exclusively by the team with lots of love.
Some good reads just from the team! Keep reading.
