Last evening she sent me the link of the beautifully turned out page that she had compiled and developed, featuring the writing tips that she had received from individual writers and bloggers, which included me. What struck me instantly as I scrolled down these undoubtedly helpful tips that came from people from varied backgrounds was that they were all majorly from women, with only one thing in common – that was their love for writing! What beautiful coincidence that we could see a fruition to this venture on ‘Women’s day!’ After all, it was a coming together of like-minded women (with the exception of one man, I could see only one there!), to share and help grow in whatever they were best at, and that too on behest of a woman who is admired by all of us for her pro-activeness…who else but our dear friend ‘Judy!’ Thank you so much Judy, for this thoughtful initiative.
As the world celebrates International Women’s Day today, I really wasn’t in the mood for acknowledging this day, with the recent spate of mud-slinging on the 80% of ‘bad girls,’ as pointed out by the accused rapists and the lawyers defending them in the brutal Delhi rape case. These are the same people who have self-appointed themselves as the moral policemen of Indian society. I’m proud to claim that I fall in the category of the ‘bad girls.’ A woman who is unapologetic in everything she does to please herself and does not live in the shadow of fear of confirming to the so-called politically correct image of a ‘good girl,’ as defined by a certain creed of hypocrites plaguing the society.Well, what changed my mind and put me in a better perspective to write today was this email that I received yesterday from someone. Judy Yaron, is a dear blogger friend, whom I connected through one of the blogging challenges I had undertaken a few months back. Her blog posts are intriguing, informative and at the same time entertaining with her trademark sense of humor peeping through her words on and off. Judy’s interest is in writing content for learning and information products and services. She recently came up with this brilliant idea wherein she invited a host of bloggers, writers and entrepreneurs to share their writing tips which in turn would be featured on her page: http://www.cutthecrapsolutions.com. The purpose for doing this was with the intent of providing benefit to both seasoned and amateur writers/bloggers alike to help them write better content.
Here’s the writing tip I shared that works for me the most and which got featured on her site:

You, a "bad girl"? 😉 No! Never. But if being bad is good, by all means be bad 🙂 And keep shining your light, wherever you go. And let us in our own ways continue to work toward the day we won't need a Women's Day!
Yes Beloo, I guess being bad is the only way one can live, if you go by the words of these narrow minded men. Being good according to them comes with a whole of compromises that I would never be able to comply too. You're right, let's keep being us to make every day a women's day!
Wonderful post Vinodini !!! Our dear friend Judy, like you, has a wonderful way with words! I love reading both your blogs!
Hey, thanks Lisa! Yes, Judy does have an amazing voice to her words. I've missed having you around here for a long time. Do keep dropping by 🙂
Well, I'm a bad girl too, so a hi from a fellow bad girl to another fellow bad girl! 🙂
Hello bad girl Naba, glad to have my kind of girls around 😉
I would love to be called as a bad girl if the need be. An encouraging post for the day!
Hey, thanks Nibhz! Yes, if being bad is the only way you can be free to pick your choices – so be it!
I understand you not wanting to write or 'celebrate' today being International Women's Day. I felt the same; however, if none of us writers were to, where would the world be? I think we need to add our two-cents worth just like you did – so glad you did! 🙂 Appreciated this post and also love that quote for women! 🙂 I love using exclamation marks! 😉 <3
I'm glad you understand Elly. Judy's mail really pumped me into writing this post. Else I was too done with all the emotional jargon that was going on post the rape documentary. After all, there's also a brighter side to life, and that's what makes you use exclamation marks most of the time….isn't it? 😉 <3
That's a nice one, Vinodini! I love your stories with these twists that you bring towards the end. Happy women's day to you too 🙂 On my way to check Judy's blog.
Thanks Aathira! I guess I enjoy writing those stories with twisted ends too. Hope you enjoy browsing through Judy's blog too 🙂
Great minds think alike, Me Bad too 🙂 Liked the writing tips you shared, will check out Judy's blog too.
Thanks Sulekka! Proud to have so many bad girls around me 😉
Another bad girl tagging along. And I am proud of that! We should be na? 😉
He he he, yes Sheethal we sure should be proud of that!
This is my first time here. Loved your post and the writing tips. Will check out the site. Thank you for sharing 🙂
Hey, thanks for dropping by Shanaya! Do keep coming back 🙂
I say that a lot too! Since being bad is what helps me to be myself, by all means people can call me a bad girl! I don't give a damn about their opinion!
International Women's Day #MakeItHappen
Absolutely Swathi, its best not to care for such petty opinions.
