So... I have been working on my book for a while and that involved taking down some posts from this blog and editing them. Just in case you did not know, I took down over 30 posts from this blog in October last year. If you notice, whenever you click on any of my poems link in the poem tab, you will realized that they are all missing. In fact, that is the answer to the giveaway question I asked in my welcome back post, which no one got till today.
So, as I was saying, apart from the new entries for the book, which have been featuring in the entry game, I brushed up old ones and made them book-worthy. In the process of brushing them up, I realized that I had actually been putting up utter rubbish. In fact, while editing, I felt really bad for my blog readers. I was like ‘Why were they praising my writing? What the hell was I thinking putting such unprofessional works on blog?’ so I now officially apologise to you guys for putting up a shoddy job of some of my poetry and prose.
In case, you are not convinced, check out the poem below and let it speak for itself. It is a poem that was on this blog for a very long time. It is titled Already Taken
Need I say more? That, my readers, is the difference between a shoddy work and a well edited work. In case, you did not know or might have forgotten, I am not only a writer, but an editor (Terms and Conditions are here). Apart from editing fiction and other articles, I also edit poems, without allowing it lose its context, getting rid of unnecessary padding and clots in the process. This is a very sensitive process. I for one would rather edit fictions and regular articles, but if I have to edit poems, I won’t reject the offer. After all, I have to put food on my table.
So let me know... what do you think?
P.S: Thanks to all my new followers. I hope you like the blog. Thanks for dropping by
