• The science of stupidity

    Block that writer, right away.


    They say the purpose of a writer in this world is to keep civilization from destroying each other. That may be true but for a writer surviving in this little world is as difficult as swimming peacefully in a popular holiday swimming pool.

    "So you are writing a book?" she asked, nice way to start a conversation.
    "Oh yes, my first ambitious novel," I beamed, "After writing so many short stories, I decided to go for the big novel."
    "Nice. You know I also plan to write a book, but when I retire and have more time."

    Crash and burn. Straight face smiley. :|


    "Wow you write books also?" he said.
    "I am writing only one book," I clarified.
    "Nice, my life is fairly easy, I go home and sleep, wake up and come to office." he informed.

    Not a thing you should be proud of.

    The best one yet was very recently.

    She, "What is your book name?"
    I told her the working title of my book.
    "Oooh..."
    "Yes," I simply replied.
    "Wow, is that book published anywhere?" she asked.
    For 20 secs I was shocked. Wasn't it published but I took the higher road.
    "If the book was published anywhere, would I be writing it?" I asked simply.

    Writing a book is not as easy is it. You have writers block, creativity block, idiots blocking your way and your characters killing each other.

    About Me

    My Photo

    Hi My name is Siddhesh Kabe, Indian and proud.
    I am a story-teller currently based out of Bangalore. Born in the cultural hub of Maharastra, Pune, I have travelled to and lived in more than ten cities in India. I work on various medium including but not limited to graphic novels, comics, novels and film scripts. I see the way things are without the way things should be. I challenge beliefs and minds to show you world beyond your wildest imagination. I mostly write on science fiction, fantasy, mythology and sometimes thrillers. My upcoming projects include a novel that scourges the dark underbelly of mad science and a fantasy graphic novel that is going to shake your roots
    When I am not writing, reading, drawing and arguing you will find me riding my bicycle in the city or crossing state borders on my bike. I prefer making my own tea and exploring new things.
    Feel free to get in touch in any way possible and together we will change the world over cup of hot coffee.
