According to the popular type of writing today, two prominent styles can be identified---first, writing about people and second, writing about ideas. For example, in the first category, one can count the following of my previous entries---Rahul Gandhi [Rahul Gandhi, a Godsend and an Angel and Rahul Gandhi Shoe Hurling Incident], Mahatma Gandhi [Mahatma Gandhi, as I Appreciate the Man], Anna Hazare [Who Guides Anna Hazare?], P. Chidambaram [P. Chidambaram and Rape in Delhi], P. J. Thomas [P. J. Thomas: A Critical Dismissal], former Pakistani President Musharraf [PAKISTAN: AN INTERFERING NATION], Baba Ram Dev [Delhi Police, With You, For You, Always to…], former Karnataka Chief Minister Mr. Yeddyurappa and former Libyan ruler Colonel Gaddafi [Libya and Karnataka] and Aarushi Talwar [Sorry Aarushi].
Simultaneously, regarding the ideas, one can consider the topic of motivation [Three Aims That Keep Me Motivated], which of course is a valuable concept and idea. It is the topic that is searched by a huge number of people who visit the Internet on everyday basis.
The noticeable point here is that the number of my write-ups on ideas is less. There is a big reason behind this discovery. Generally, when you are searching for a story about a popular person, you will find that the news papers and other sources of information are replete with the articles on such individuals. Thus, it becomes easy to write about them; you just read the story, analyse it properly, conclude some basic and advanced points about the facts related to that individual and write an article on him or her by adding your viewpoints about that particular individual. However, the same cannot happen when you are dealing with an idea, such as motivation. Of course, you can always look towards the successful men/women of past and present, read their life stories and “cook up” a write-up on them. Well, that would be an “OK” thing, but would also be the easiest task to do.
Then, how to do the same task differently and make it more interesting? Simple! Look at your own life; examine and analyse each and every incident that changed the ways of your life and created unlimited opportunities to grab success in your life, make conclusions about what happened, how it happened, what it led to/ its impact, and what could have happened if that “turning point” would not have appeared in your life. What do you do in this way? You simply introspect, visit happy or sad moments of your life and relive them to engage into a learning experience. Your perspectives about your life change and new ones develop. Along with these benefits, you also get access to the “readymade material”, just like you have when you look for stories related to people about whom you want to write, on which you can easily develop a coherent, lucid and attractive write-up. Therefore, this seems the easiest, simple and most beneficial answer for the question “How To Write About Ideas”.
When you become the master of this process, i.e. examining your life to get good ideas, you can start applying the same for the lives of those whom you think that they have turned their lives around from darkness or negativity to brighter side or positivism. This may include your family members, in-laws, friends, relatives, teachers, bosses or employees. When doing this, the main concept to always remember is to think about the “application and context of a particular idea [such as motivation Three Aims That Keep Me Motivated]” in somebody’s life. There is a great chance that you will analyse the life experiences to their depth and come out with the real stories, which are always interesting and a delight to read, to tell about a particular idea and a particular individual.
