Oh..to be a ‘ misfit ‘, may not be in the fitness of things!


This probably might not be for those who miss fitting in. I am sorry if it is not for you. Perhaps I don’t fit in. That said, I am happy to be a misfit !


The famous rapper and singer Drake said, “I was born to make mistakes, not to fake perfection “.


If vulnerability is your strength, you might be a misfit..


If standing naked in your own truth is your go-to attire, you might be a misfit..


If your answers are questions, you might be a misfit..


If you are leading as a follower, you might be a misfit..


If you sit comfortably while standing inside your own failure, you might be a misfit..


If you don’t fall prey to the  ‘ wisdom of the crowds ‘, you might be a misfit..


If you are contrarian in your thinking, you might be a misfit..


If you don’t run the wanting to be an ‘ also ran race ‘, you might be a misfit..


If you are open about your ‘ imposter syndrome ‘, you might be a misfit..


If, as a personality, you don’t want to B Type A, you might be a misfit..


If you see shame in being the same, you might be a misfit..


If ‘ out of place ‘ is the place you seek, you might be a misfit..


If you don’t want to be all things to all people, you might be a misfit..



It must have come as a relief that a lot of us misfits so have so many places to go to, situations to be in and standards to be measured by. Perhaps because, institutionalized rejection of difference is an absolute necessity in a profit economy which needs we outsiders as surplus people.


As Sarah Addison Allen put it out it so beautifully “ Misfits need a place to get away, too. All that trying to fit in is exhausting.



Writing It Right !


How do you get it write?


” Our notebooks give us away, for however dutifully we record what we see around us, the common denominator of all we see is always, transparently, shamelessly, the implacable ‘I.” —Joan Didion, “On Keeping a Notebook “.


Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing said Benjamin Franklin


Write something. There is no greater agony than an untold story inside you. Write something. Then improve it. Then write something else.Then repeat it till such time you have enough matter to constitute a post. Then ship it out. Rinse and repeat the process. Throw caution to the winds and to things like ‘ writer’s block ‘.


On the freeway of consistent bad writing is the convenience store that comes up- that of good writing. Fuel up there. 


And as you do that, you will simplify, clarify and amplify your thinking and strengthen your stories. When you are writing, you are looking at your own freedom. Nothing more empowering than that.



Please yourself. Pick up a few words. Stick your neck out and string them like a necklace.Open with a question and don’t answer till the end. The world will wait for an answer..then read out the riot…write act. Rinse..repeat.


From writer’s block to writer’s blog. The Separation Anxiety that we have in our heads is only a myth.


” The first draft is you just telling yourself the story “- Terry Pratchett
