Best Friend's Release Technique

Best Friends - No matter what happens, nothing changes with them. It's true with my Best Friend too. I have known her for half my life. We met way back in my 11th Std and have been together ever since then. It's the ease with which we are able to pick up the strings from where we left, no matter how long it has been. We try to spend a few minutes each day talking and we talk A to Z. One such interesting conversation happened last week. 

We were having a very intense discussion on married life and spouses. She said a very interesting thing that got me thinking. She said, 

- We need an outlet to let go of our rantings and venting to release the built up steam. 

Now, come to think of it, it is such a true statement. Isn't it? What we do, is rant and vent in front of our spouse and many a times he may not even be paying heed to it. If we all have that one person that we goto and vent out our negative emotions, I think it gets a wee bit better. Now, I do not say, it is the best solution and works for all, but for those to whom it works, it works well. A release for your pressure! Think it over. 

A Book that Moved Me

It's very rare that I write about a book I read, that too for a person like me who is a book addict. But once in a few books. I come across a book that just stirs my soul and moves me in a way where I am all teary eyed by the time I wrap the book. Once such book, was a long awaited - Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. 

In my previous post, I had mentioned how a writing should move the reader and this book is the perfect example to it. From the first page till the end, this book gripped me so tight that I just couldn't put it down till I was done. She has brought out emotions so strong in her writing, that it was definitely bound to leave her readers, like me, with tears. Now, since I know the thought and an example of the demonstration of it, I for sure will incorporate adding more feelings to my writing. 

 I have always wondered, how some authors demonstrate such fine feelings in the their books. How do they stir the readers emotion? Somewhere, I have begun to realize the essence of feelings and emotion is a cardinal to good writing. As I read more, I hope to come across more such thought provoking matter to fine tune writings.

To all my fellow readers, if you have not laid your hands on this book, please do it now. I can't wait to start the sequel to this book titled - After You!
