Read as much as you can. Research deeply about the subject areas you are interested to write, and always try to improve your knowledge. It is very important to be knowledgeable. Read life stories about authors and successful people.
Writing daily is a must. Keep a pocket note book always with you and write. Write anything, write down your feelings, thoughts about certain incidents and situations. Practice writing daily and show your work for experts and get their advice. But do not become discouraged by comments.

The best thing about being a writer is that you can create your own world, which sometimes may not really exist. You can create characters you dream of, you can explore and create adventures. The best part is, you can make an impact on the society. A writer is someone who has his or her voice being heard, vision being known in the society. A writer is someone who analyses the society, people and the world around him or her. Simply a writer is someone who pays attention to the utmost simple things happening around him or her. I believe the best things about being a writer is, you are going to live forever through your work, in your books, in the hearts of your readers, in your characters. A good writer contributes to the survival of civilization. (less)

As I enter an unknown world, long forgotten…
No one remembers the name of this land, once glorious, but now in ruins…
I touch the ruins, and feel the heartbeat of a dying civilization,
The air whispers songs of fallen heroes.
I walk through the ruins, as the path beckons me…

Anuradhapura (790) copy

“My dear,
Find what you love and let it kill you.
Let it drain you of your all. Let it cling onto your back and weigh you down into eventual nothingness.
Let it kill you and let it devour your remains.
For all things will kill you, both slowly and fastly, but it’s much better to be killed by a lover.
~ Falsely yours”
Kinky Friedman
Ama liked a quote
“If you become too readily available to people, they begin to take you for granted; pull away, and they will clamor for you. It's a subconscious thing our society has created in the minds of the masses. This is why most of the "greats" didn't become recognized until after their death. If you're overlook, rejoice, maybe your one of the future greats.”

“A father’s tears and fears are unseen, his love is unexpressed, but his care and protection remains as a pillar of strength throughout our lives.”
Ama H. Vanniarachchy

“She is the creature of life, the giver of life, and the giver of abundant love, care and protection. Such are the great qualities of a mother. The bond between a mother and her child is the only real and purest bond in the world, the only true love we can ever find in our lifetime.”
Ama H. Vanniarachchy

“Have we ever wondered a mothers silent cries? Her struggles, her fears and her worries? Do we ever have time for this in our busy lives? Have we ever thought of the sacrifices she has done in order to make our lives happier, and her dreams cut short to make our dreams come true?”
