Amitava Kumar 36 Features When I was promoted to the rank of professor, the library at the university where I was then employed asked me to send them the name of a book that had been useful to me in my career. The library then purchased a copy, which was duly displayed in one of its rooms, with a statement I had written about the book: This was one of the first literary autobiographies that I read.
Its very first sentence established in my mind the idea of writing as an opening in time or a beginning; it conveyed to me, with its movement and rhythm, a history of repeated striving, and of things coming together, at last, in the achievement of the printed word: It has lasted through the twenty years of my writing life.
The ambition and the anxiety of the beginner is there at the beginning of each book. In the beginning I had to forget everything I had written by the age of I abandoned everything and began to write like a child at school.
I almost began like that. About a decade ago, soon after I had received tenure, Tehelka asked me to come aboard as a writer. I was visiting my parents in India at that time. It was winter, and I went to the Tehelka office to talk to the editors. Later, when we were done, I was taken around for a tour of the place.
There was a pen-and-ink portrait of Naipaul on the wall because he was one of the trustees. These were rules for writing. It was explained to me that Naipaul was asked by the Tehelka reporters if he could give them some basic suggestions for improving their language.
Naipaul had come up with some rules. He had fussed over their formulation, corrected them and then faxed back the corrections. I was told that I could take the sheet if I wanted. A few days later, I left India and the sheet travelled with me, folded in the pages of a book that I was reading. The rules were a wonderful antidote to my practice of using academic jargon, and they made me conscious of my own writing habits.
I was discovering language as if it were a new country. Like a traveller in a new place, I asked questions, took notes and began to arrange things in a narrative. I followed the rules diligently for at least a year, and my book Bombay—London—New York was a product of the writing I did during that period.Writing good user stories can be hard, but these ten tips will help you tell powerful stories.
