Writing Marathon….Saturday Night

I have finally decided , that enough is enough  and lets stop day dreaming and do something concrete.What are my major goals:

To get published before this year ends, well that’s  along term plan.

Before this month ends , I need to come up with 3 stories  , one play in English….and clear cut plan for my novel “Project Irfan” and I want to open a Bookshop cum Cafe named kashmir Book Shop in near future.

And also loose 5 Kgs by the end of this month and go regularly to GYM morning 6 am to 7 am for next 10 days.

But today on this Saturday night I want to start and finish a story write here right now…

But   do I have an Idea, any outline???…I have a couple , normally when I start penning down a story , I start  very enthusiastically  , but somewhere in the middle I loose the plot and then it adds to the list of unfinished symphonies and becomes a source of pain rather than joy. But having finished another couple of books of Archer/Satyajit/Bond, I am confident I can hold my ground this time around and not let the story overwhelm me.

Lets see how that starts

Dated: 15-02-2014…11:38 PM

After a lengthy discussion with my flat mate on the my future , I finally did what i was itching to do from the last 2 months. I finished writing a story after a marathon 1.5 hour non stop writing . I normally type my pieces  in my laptop , but this time I was like  in a trance and I grabbed whatever was close to me , lest I loose  it again
It was a story I had heard long back. I still remember  how that story changed my views about ghosts and everything and how my father had to accompany to washroom that night. I was so frightened after that.

I hope I was able to do justice to the story. Most of it is in first person, and that “flow” problems which I was facing have been partially resolved and I hope my lines will make your brain Imagine  the  various situation and places the story goes into. I have finished its end this time. I have an incomplete novel and 10 other stories lying  in an obscure folder on my company’s lappy. But this time I have gone a bit ahead . The only thing different I did this time was think through the whole story and imagine those things happening to me. Suddenly the fear of another In-complete story was over and a sense of adventure started. All the shitty thoughts took a back seat and only the story remained in my damaged brain. My heart beat followed the ups and downs of the protagonist and it was a treat writing about 12 pages in a single go.

Though forgot to order dinner and now at 11:38 PM all we have are a few loafs of bread left, and my hand is paining a lot.

Now ,tomorrow I will finally type it out and edit . I may have to  read the grammar again and a check for “primary level” blunders in my piece. Its difficult though , but one has to made it readable …..

  1. Primary level grammatical blunders, yes you do make those, but that’s what editors are for. Authors are supposed to flow freely like sand. And you, my friend, perfectly fit that flexible mould!
