Therefore a large number of writers in third world have no choice but to adopt writing as secondary profession.
Majority of people leave this world without even knowing that they have guts to write, consequently they deprive us from bulk of knowledge in shape of life time experiences. Many of us are in deception of writing memoirs and Travelogues after retirement.
People who are towing such dreams are requested to start writing important events of their lives and preserve them in their daily diaries. Almost every writer and poet in literary world is in habit of notes taking.
