Why People Regard Virtual World A Safer Place For Their Intellectual Expressions?

Virtual world
We have so tied our dependence with the virtual world that we’re enslaved to their magnetism.

Since the advent of online technology and subsequent rapid expansion of virtual wonderment that it manifested in the lifestyle of people has categorically delineated one very significant virtue, that virtual life is over-dominating the real world of human beings.

In view of the circumstances that intellectual expressions of people are getting confined to the precinct of digital world or virtual world, there is stark conclusion signifying the next generation would have incurable obsession of this cyber world, which would be confidently regarded as the most preferred rendezvous for the likeminded to speak their mind.

Why Do People Regard Virtual World A Safer Place For Their Intellectual Expressions?

Social media platforms, especially Facebook and Twitter are attributed to have distinctively inspired people to have their say safely, either through pseudo profiles or as a passive expressionalist over the subjects which they intrinsically feel to have their “expressed dissatisfaction” with.

As a matter of fact, we have so much deluded ourselves with the phony reputation of this virtual world that we deliberately tend to overlook our own existence with the real world to the detriment of family, friends and relationships.

Based on my intellectual obsession with knowledge and the developed subjective experience, I’ve reasoned out as per my own standpoint with regards to the question aforesaid:

Textual Expression Overweighs Verbal Expression:

The communication of belief or opinion through textual delineation, as I have personally observed myself, is very stronger as compared to the verbal expression wherein the speaker or commentator often fumbles for right words to convey message effectively.

The communication of opinion through verbal expression in open space is not a preferred choice for most.

In addition, those with agoraphobia (fear of public places) syndrome typically acquiesce to virtual places to speak their mind rather than ensuring their physical presence in open places and have their intellectual expressions stammered with nausea.

Virtual World Is A Tireless And Prompt Access To People’s Intellectual Expression:

How long will it take to tweet your intellectual expressions over a burning issue of your nation?

Less than a minute, I guess.

And that’s exactly what most people adore virtual platform for the least time-consuming verbalization of their intellectualism which could otherwise have been annoyingly time-consuming and less creative in an open place.

With smartphone powered by non-stop internet connection, getting an access to virtual world is technically very, very easy.

Well, that may not be an entirely true, as we’d witnessed the frenzy mob of demonstrators in support of establishing laws and orders in society or demanding justice against social menaces or apprehension of perpetrators.

However, witnessing such incidents in real life is quite exceptional as today’s smartphone-equipped generations have their deep-seated affinity with virtual world to have their say because that does the job instantly.

We’re Developing A Bystander Syndrome, Willingly Let The Sleeping Dogs Lie:

Well, the virtual world is certainly not a factor behind developing such a syndrome; most people deliberately subjugate themselves to their unwillingness of interfering in the status-quo, signifying “that’s none of my business” characteristic (a willingly and cunningly manufactured habit).

Such people take resort to social media and anonymously express their viewpoints, as somewhere deep-down, they crave to have their dissatisfaction expressed namelessly.

Introverts Evince Their Preferential Treatment To Virtual World

The way the consumption rate of online technology is increasing, we’d be besieged by the deluge of overwhelming power of digital world. Meanwhile, the increasing number of introverts is yet another fearsome contributory to the mounting popularity of virtual world, as they impulsively tie their affinity with the virtual social places so as to speak their mind safely without others intruding their ‘sweet home’ world.

No doubt these people deliberately cut off all social contacts and zero their presence in public places to express their thoughts.

If You Want To Be A Good Writer: Write A Lot

In my previous post, If you want to be a good writer – Read a Lot, I’d narrated the one significant quotation of Stephen King where the statement emphasized the importance of reading books for anyone wishing to be a writer in their life.

Now, this blog post highlights significance of his another statement to which he suggested writers ought to write a lot in order to be best in their niche.

What are the salient benefits of writing a lot, especially when it is an emphatic point behind improving one’s writing skill?

A scintillating improvement to your creative expression manifests due to writing a lot:

One of the most remarkable benefits of writing that you may experience is visible improvement in your creative expression, albeit the condition behind manifestation of such a notable improvement in your writing is subject to persistent practice backed by your commitment and dedication.

Writing is indeed a commitment of giving your hundred and one percent to this lexical aspect of contextualizing words. Apparently, you must ensure that the continuity of the practice is unbreakable even though it may sound physically and mentally demanding task.

Writing a lot gives you an improved understanding of your subject matter:

I’ve personally observed over the five years of writing that I’ve mastered over many subjects with an improved insight of their subtle meaning.

Though I was professionally obliged to comply certain rules and regulations associated with my professional association with my employer organizations in relation with writing contents for their marketing purposes, however, my contribution also helped me with an improved insight about those subjects I wrote contents about.

Writing a lot qualifies you for a host of writing jobs demanding someone with specialization into writing:

If you believe that specialization in writing comes through having yourself enrolled for a writing course in a university, then I don’t think that is actually the most realistic and trustworthy way to gain the specialization. Rather, I tend to believe that if one is hell-bent and labors hard for writing with dedication, very soon he will gain the required expertise.

Moreover, in due course of time, his month-long persistent practice will help him qualified for writing jobs demanding specialized writer. Yes, this is possible, but such an excellence comes through persistence.

I do not want to demean the credibility of such writing program offered by university and different institutions worldwide, for they are certainly credited to have given the world numerous writers who are respectively known among us for their creative or unique expressions.

I just want to point out that writing a lot with dedication and constant practice can also give you the required excellence and specialization that you may have sought otherwise through those creative writing courses designed to make you expert at your niche, but in return of monetary charges.

Writing develops your communication power convincingly:

If you indulge yourself into writing with dedication and perseverance, very soon you gather an improved communication power; you can actually master the art of persuading or impressing others. This is not an overnight result at all; you need a lot of time to finally master this art, but make no doubt that if you continue writing, you’ll have the communication mastery.

Writing a lot, conclusively, is one of the most effective techniques to improve your writing skill together with giving you additional awesome benefits. Though I’ve personally observed that most writers are introvert and usually confine themselves into their introversion believing that’s the safest room in the world to create a masterpiece.

And no doubt that most classic books that we find today were actually originated from the mind of those writers who confined their world into the wall of their own introversion.

However, to be a good writer, you don’t have to be introverted or aloof, just enjoy your writing and when finished,  give it a good visual check to ensure correctness of sentences in terms of grammar and syntax.
