To All The Party Animals Out There:Get Your Tickets NOW :d

19 Feb

Below is a set of methods for a wannabe who wishes to pursue his/her career in a successful attendance of high profile concerts, fashion shows and, last but not at all least, dance parties. Now I am here to help you all, but hey! I don’t give advice for free and never perform any extraordinary deed without a plan, for, in back of my devilish mind there are ulterior motives, which you need not to know.

This article is for that insignificant sole who does not have any sense of self-respect, or dignity. In short, a high profile looser.

P.S if you do then please skip to the next article, do not waste your insignificant time.

So, open your peewee eyes close your gigantic mouth and listen carefully. In order to be successful there are many methods involved which are as follows.

P.S if you fail in all, try them again, and then again and again, for life asks for a lot of hard work and effort.

Quest: 1

1.       Discovery of a pass or a ticket. (free of charge, obviously)

Tactic 1:

This method is the easiest one possible, all you have to do is to spread your hands right in front of you, fall on your knees, tears, one or two and BEG!!!!!!

(Beg only those who have the object of success) somebody somewhere will show some pity and take you along. But the requirement is to be as “Lichar” and “chichar” as you can be. Dash around and call whoso ever you can think of, let your imagination go wild. Don’t look back, success is what lies ahead, either succeed or die, there is no turning back.

Caution: you might end up getting slapped and spat at but please do not squish your hope like a tomato, these emotionless warm-blooded mammals do not understand your feelings. Otherwise 100% success guaranteed.

But even if you don’t succeed, please don’t come to me with weeping. I have another method for you.

Tactic 2:

This is the easiest way out; all you have to do is to spread the word around, adding the fact, that you’re single. Guys complain that this technique is a total failure. To them I will only advice, use your common sense, times have changed there are many single women seeking single men, and single men seeking single women, and many men seeking single men, and single women seeking single women. So go for it. But even then you don’t succeed, and then I am sorry to declare the fact, that you are a total disgrace to our society and its morality.

Please don’t come to me, weeping. I have another method for you, I guarantee you success will be on your doorsteps.

Tactic 3:

The next method is very significant and complex since it requires a lot of experience and expertise.

Make friends, lots of friends, of every make, model and number, no matter who they are, your motto should be to “meet more people”. The rest will become very easy, invitations will flock around you. But by that time you will be too old and no longer interested so please skip to the next method.

Tactic 4:

This method is usually acquired when all the rest are a total disaster.

This method has a very powerful and a supreme persona involved, and the method involves only one thing to be performed every passing second, and that is to

PRAY, PRAY and PRAYYYYYYYYYYYYY…………………….. HAVE HOPE ONE DAY YOUR PRAYS WILL BE ANSWERED.

If all these methods fail then I am sorry to announce that you are a worthless, insignificant and a hollow cocoon, which can never move forward in life.

Now since you have already wasted my precious time and your time is of no significance please kindly skip to the next article. But if you still need more methods consult the book 1001 ways of success.

Art of writing- First 30 secs- because it all begins with A COPY-EE :D…

18 Feb

Fast and Furious 3 had an amazing opening scene. It caught my attention and kept me involved from the beginning till the very end. But guess what, that is the only part of the movie that I really remember, the rest is dead and gone. I ask myself the question, what exactly is the reason behind it.

Whenever I want appear online and read a new article, I go through the first three lines. Read them and decide whether to move forward with the reading (of that particular article) or not. Most of the time, I don’t. Because the first three lines are never the first thirty seconds of Fast and Furious 3, obviously the rest is history.

These days my focus has been more on reading than writing.  And the key to writing the best article is focusing on the first and the last paragraph.

Inverted pyramid, which I always ignored, has a new angle to it. The inverted pyramid stands on top of another pyramid. They together make the whole article complete.

Important stuff right at the top and the fluff should remain somewhere in the middle in minute quantity, and then resume with the best bit, ending your piece with the beginning.

The first few seconds rate a movie or a written article. These are the seconds which help you determine whether you want to move forward or not. Without them everything will fall completely flat.

Developed my very own style of writing,

because it all starts with A COPY-EE :D…

Kashmir Solidarity Day- Your Contribution?

11 Feb

5th February marked another year for the Kashmiris Fighting hard for independence.

What has been your contribution? Zero…

I remember those 14th August days, when almost everyone was on their rooftop at 8 am in the morning. With paper flags, a dori and bowl full of paste made of water and flour. Used all these to decorate the entire house.

Those days are long gone…

But this year InshaAllah it will be different. With kids coming for holidays, I will make sure that we will celebrate 14th August with all the spirit that used to be.

Kashmiris are still fighting for their lives, and we who have Freedom, fail to realize its importance.

It’s a pity.

Slogan vs. Headline

10 Feb

Would it be wrong to say that writing headlines is exactly similar to writing slogans?

Or are slogans, headlines?

Well afew seconds back I discovered that it is exactly the same and  different at the same time.

What makes is similar: The Jumping Affect

Simple, Short, Clear and catchy.

Whenever I write an article I don’t usually come up with a headline, until I am done with it. But when I am through with it, the headline just jumps into my mind. The reason of this Jumping affect is due to the constant ongoing process of writing. This whole process is also known as brain storming, okay you just dint know it. Oh! I came up with another phrase The jumping Affect. Some also call it the Aha moment.

Aha moment.

So, once you have formed and written something by yourself you don’t have to look here and there for the headline/title. Because the idea, the catchy affect comes directly from within that particular piece. It develops over time and leads towards perfection till you end it, but only through constant practice.

First you need to know your audience, what they want and what appeals them the most. Throw things at them, their will only be two reactions in return. Either they will comment and praise or they will completely ignore and in exceptional cases they will throw stones at you. (this was a joke don’t take it too seriously). It won’t take you long in knowing the result, but improving through the result will require a little time.

In total, you have only two types of audiences. Those who read and those who don’t. Those who read start from the headline, often compromise on their lack of spark (continue reading) because sometimes  the first paragraph makes up for the sloppy headline.

The other, who don’t read, they skim through headlines only, they don’t compromise at all.

The non readers are the real audiences, if one wants to learn copywriting. Get hold of a non-reader and check your headlines with them. They are the real critics.

What makes it different?

You have to produce a line out of nowhere. One line which sums up everything, has the 5 Ws. This is what I have been doing from the past few hours. I ended up writing a whole article on my experience of writing a simple straight forward line. I have come up with many lines during this whole crazy brainstorming process lets see which one makes its mark.
