I do not want to do this, but they put words into my mind!
Once ,during an altercation,one of my rivals told me my words were sharper than those of any f***er they knew.
My friends warned me I must mend my language lest it will mar my fortunes.
And my mother told me I was inscrutable.
They were not compliments, I know.
But, all these in right measure , I now realize, would make me a crude if not cruel writer, wouldn’t it?
I am Sathya Jith.P.S from India, a mariner by profession and a dreamer by passion.
My body is 39 years old; spirit cannot be said to be as much weak though.
I live in Trivandrum ,State of Kerala, with my sweet wife who is still sceptical about my literary ‘prowess’ and who does not seem to squander any chance to poke fun at my avocation. In fact, it is as much to redeem myself in her eyes as to refine my craft that I joined Authonomy.
I had been writing stories for the past twenty eight years, some on paper and many in my mind. Never serious about the flair, I was content to remain a student and an observer of the world of letters.
Every now and then, I write short stories to test the patience of editors world over. When they boomerang, I find myself thinking either those at the desk have a problem or I was such a pathetic writer.
“CATACOMBS”, my second novel, (the first one although complete requires revision) was originally written in 2002 and is based on a story I heard from my folks .It is complete at 56k words.
I solicit constructive criticism. Anything from literary nit-picking to incisive animadversions will be entertained.
If you think you have written a good story, let me know. Give me some time and I will give you an honest comment on your work.
As for the backing and read swaps, I think I have got to be pragmatic. For, in today’s world, if you want to sell a refrigerator to an Eskimo, you gotta buy some ice in return.
I thank all the Authonomy members for their valuable time & suggestions which ultimately led to the publishing of 'CATACOMBS' on KDP. You can have a look at the book by following this link:-
