#SpecialFeature :: #GuestPost - The key to overcome anxiety by Sunil Mishra

*** Special Feature - March 2018 ***

About the Book:

"Transit Lounge" is a contemporary book consisting of short incidents, observations and reflections while travelling to 30 countries across six different continents during the last 15 years. 

The book is a personal account of travels to places in Africa, South America, Asia, Europe, USA, Australia and New Zealand.  

It was interesting to observe all these different cultures and people from an Indian perspective. The book is a compilation of small incidents and events during such travels; it includes losing an air ticket, dealing with difficult custom officials or getting mugged in a prime location in a foreign country.

Do you remember writing a literary article and feeling quite awful reading it later, you wanted to tear it to pieces because you never felt happy about it? That anxiety is quite normal for first time writers. Everyone, who writes a book lives through and finally overcomes that anxiety. Unlike scientific writings, the literary writings are a reflection on the writer himself or herself. So the author is never detached from his article in a literary writings – he exposes himself to be judged by those who read the article.

The key to overcome this anxiety is to write thinking no one will ever read your book. Allow yourself to be awful and incoherent at times. When you complete a critical mass you will start considering it an intellectual property. You will never tear your work after that stage – rather you will refine and fine tune it. When it comes to final editing – you can be ruthless about it, still your work will survive.
