Thank GOD… errr.. why.. thank me…|||

In the process of novel publishing, once publishing house signed a contract with the author, they ask for the whole manuscript of the novel for professional editing. (at least in my case.. as my English language is not that powerfulllll….) So about a month before my editor in rainbow publishing house started editing my novel. Few days back I started getting the edited chapters for my consent and review as author. They also gave me deadline which was very close.
“ I had some other work as well so I needed to finish it in two days” I thought.
She sent me 3 chapters the day before yesterday and sent the remaining 8 chapters excluding prologue and epilogue and asked me to review and give the script back for the second time editing and proof reading.
Few days back I used to think that writing is heaven but I got to know that its not heaven but it’s the place exactly half way between earth and hell if there is any…
It’s the most boring job ever to read over and over again and again whatever one has written. (My respect for the editors has increased enormously since yesterday.)
And at this point of time I realized that I enjoy conceptualizing plot and scripting a story but I am not quite enjoying this job of reading the same story that you yourself have written.
Anyway but I had to do it.. as I have taken the responsibility of being a novelist now..
Yesterday I decided to devote full day for this review and get it done by tonight. But..
I woke up late as I slept at 1 30 AM yesterday.. (was busy doing 1st writings for my scond novel..). So today I woke up at 10 o’clock. I had my coffee and sat for review.
I did completed two chapters and my comments till 1 PM and had lunch..then I sat again for review at around 2 30 PM .. but was feeling extremely sleepy.. so I slept and woke up at 4 13 PM..
I had tea and decided that I need to change the place so that I can concentrate fully on the work.
So I went in to shivaji park Shee Shee Dee for coffee along with my note pad and laptop. It’s a place where one can sit and enjoy the atmosphere, girls and what not..
So I sat and ordered usual coffee and started working. There was no crowd in there just a few couples. But man.. they were acting horribly…
The first place where I sat, there was one couple right in front of me. And they were fighting in public place.. not literally but cat and mouse fight.. they were having an argument over what to take to eat. Then that girl smoothly shifted the topic to his smoking and started throwing at him some bad words.
I could nt concentrate and I changed the place which was a complete corner of the shop. But my fate and me. I still could see one couple. And the thing was, they were sitting in the corner just in front of the table that I had chosen as my next spot. Boy .. that girl was HOT like …(opps.. this is public place I can’t express my inner feelings here .. can I?)..
And the boy was Punjabi stud types. And the funny part was.. when I was approaching the place, they were in the middle of passionate KISS…... (I guess they had no shame..It was they who should have felt embarrassed and stopped the act then and there itself but in reality they kept doing it.. )
I sat and started working. The kiss ended after a long time.. Then that girl started crying and was telling him how she missed him and bla bla bla..
My concentration went off just seeing that hotti…(In my defence.. I would say it was my moral responsibility to see that hotti in act of making… so..I don’t have to blame myself for not completing the work.. DO I?..)
Anyway so I returned home at around 6 PM without doing anything…
After Gym and dinner I sat for the work of review at around 10 Pm and finished it at around 4 AM , I sent the email back to the editor with my consent and changes and review…It was 5 AM and then I thought why to sleep now.. there was actually no point in sleeping for like 3 hours.
So I wrote this blog and reviewed it as well….
Oh.. GOD finally… FINALYYYY.. I completed the job required. .
Thank GOD… errr.. why.. thank me…|||… It was I who completed it…..

Anand Pethe.

    Pan on a serious note. :) nice blog!! Keep it up.

    By the way happened to ask number of that hotti?? :P

  17. Are tuza dinakram kaay lihilayas sondya? Ithe jara changala lihi, kahitari, "krantikarak, deshahitakarak, dharmopadeshak...."!!!! Finally editing kelas tyabaddal congrats! Ani take home message is, dusaryachya porinwar najar nako, get your own! Be original! hehe!

    Good writing by the way! He pahile lihiayala hawa hota na!


  18. didn't get any comment from any Gal...Well, the stuff was no doubt hot from boy's point of view! But to be frank was not so romantic....of course from Girl's point of view. Have you read Hridayastha by Dr. Alka Mandke? No, its not a love story pan Dr. Nitu Mandke ani Dr. Alka hyanchi bhet, mag prem ani nantar lagna hoiparyantache varnan etake mantarlele, prasanna ani sundar...thodkyat romantic kele ahe ki bass apan mohun jato tyat...parat parat vachave asa vatate ani pustak theuch naye ase vatate. Arthat lekhikene te mantalelepan swataha anubhavalele hote mhanu ti evhadhya takadine mandu shakali ti swataha lekhika nasun.
    i think you can pay attention to 50% of your readers too! (50% of the population is women)
    Keep writing.


  19. andya.....jekahi lihila ahes te chaan ahe but the doubt still remains.....tu kharach editing karyala gela hota???and dat too with concentration....tasa asta tar....u would not hv seen ne where else....but keep the incidences u dat u could include it in ur next novel.....but dont try to do 2 things at a time....u might mess up everything....

  20. Blog thoda change zalela disto tuza..looks better now :)

  21. aanand,
    tuze blog vachun maza pan tasa kahi lihinyacha vichar hota ---pan pudhachi balantapana mala zepanari nahit !
    vichar cancel !!
