This is perhaps the first time I’ve tried to seriously write a rap. There are two versions of this pseudo-rap, this one being the first. I wrote this as a wedding present Mayur and his wife Akshatha, but didn’t get the chance to perform it for them (this piece is best experienced performed, not read). The second version is a personal one, but I’ll upload that some other time. 🙂
So I was designing some wings for an illustration for project. Thought I’d just snag some already available on Google Images, but something in me made we want to write this, going, “SHUT UP AND READ THIS!”
….Okay, inner voice. Okay.
A while back, trying to look for a good novel-writing solution for Ubuntu / Linux, I bumped into a software called Plume Creator. I quickly grew very fond of it, and decided to use it exclusively for most of my stories. Eventually, however, some ui quirks began to bother me, so I asked the developer if I could help design it better. Fortunately, he was open to it, and we began working with other testers, who also provided great UI feedback, to help make Plume better!
It’s done. Whatever it was that you sought to create — an art project, poetry, writing, performance, etc. — it’s done! Finishing your project gives you a certain sense of accomplishment that’s unparalleled. You’ve worked hard on it, and you’ve come out with flying colors. You’re proud of what you’ve just built, and it might just stay with you forever.
Zim Wiki is perhaps my most favorite notebook app for Linux that I heavily depend on. So I’ve taken liberties to see how it can be improved. 🙂
Poetry in less than 10 mins, just for practice. It helps to sit outdoors and look for stories hidden in plain sight.
I might make another post describing my “Spiritual” journey, considering the contents are slightly different from what I’m attempting to write here. If I don’t, I hope someone holds me up to it.
A sequel to Art Burglar. This one’s dedicated to Maya Angelou, Walt Whitman, Arthur Conan Doyle, John Keats, all the giants of the past, but is most importantly dedicated to….YOU. Yes, YOU, the one reading this right now. This one’s for you.
