Why I Write...


Pico Iyer

Pico Iyer (Siddharth Pico Raghavan Iyer) said: “The less conscious one is of being ‘a writer,’ the better the writing. And though reading is the best school of writing, school is the worst place for reading. Writing should… be as spontaneous and urgent as a letter to a lover, or a message to a friend who has just lost a parent… and writing is, in the end, that oddest of anomalies: an intimate letter to a stranger.”
