Key learnings from your writing journey

Whenever you get time and any thoughts strike in your mind, just take pen and paper and write it down. I wrote this article during Covid-19  lockdown. I learnt that we just need to focus and you can convert your ideas and thoughts into amazing writings.

Steps you take to improve your writing skills 

Improvement is a life long process. No one is perfect in everything . So, in order to improve my writing skills, I read books and even watch some English series in order to boost my vocabulary.

What does writing mean to you? How do you plan your writing process? 

As stated earlier, writing for me is therapy, because once you open up your feelings and emotions, you feel more relaxed and optimistic.  

What kind of books interest you? Last book you read?

Actually, I have recently started reading books. The book I am reading at the moment is “Psychology of Money “

Why did you pick to write on women empowerment?

Women empowerment, no doubt, is a very common topic. We live in a society where in many scenarios men are more privileged than women, even though we are in the 21st century. Hence, I think women must be encouraged to make themselves independent. And if my article has encouraged at least one of them then I think my writing is successful. 

What does women empowerment mean for you? How can we empower women?

Women empowerment means giving women equal rights and opportunities. Girls should be treated the same way their brothers are treated.  Women empowerment can start within our home. We must give equal chances to our mother, sister, wife while making important decisions.

You mentioned in your article ‘Women empowerment is important for a better future for the country.’ Why?

Yes, women empowerment is important for a better future for the country because women are multi-talented. And their talent must receive a platform. They are born with the innate talent of managing both house and work at the same time. I would say, they are brilliant time managers.
