Behind The Scene “Open Your Mind”

Behind The Scene “Open Your Mind” by Indah Riyanti Putri

Juni 2016

Pertama kali saya mendapatkan e-mail dari Antik M. selaku editor, yang menawarkan saya dalam sebuah proyek penulisan buku self-help dan motivasi. Awalnya saya ragu, mengapa tiba-tiba saya  yang mendapatkan tawaran ini? Saya bukanlah seorang penulis, saya hanya seorang blogger biasa yang itu pun juga hanya pernah menuliskan 1-2 postingan tentang hal-hal berbau “motivasi”. Saya pikir, apa saya mampu menulis sebuah buku?

Namun kemudian saya berpikir kembali, bahwa salah satu alasan saya menjadi seorang blogger adalah karena saya suka menulis dan suka berbagi dengan orang lain salah satunya melalui tulisan saya. Lalu, mengapa tidak jika ada kesempatan bagi saya untuk berbagi kepada orang banyak melalui sebuah buku? Atas pertimbangan ini akhirnya saya memutuskan untuk menerima tawaran dari editor. Terlebih saya tertarik dengan konsep dari buku ini yang tidak hanya tulisan, namun juga terdapat beberapa hand-lettering karya Carolina Ratri.

Juli 2016

Akhirnya saya mendapatkan kabar kembali dari Mbak Antik melalui e-mail mengenai jadwal penulisan buku, sekaligus berkenalan untuk pertama kalinya dengan Mbak Carra juga melalui e-mail hingga kemudian kami bertiga membuat grup Whatsapp. Semua pembahasan mengenai penulisan buku “Open Your Mind” ini dibahas melalui chat grup Whatsapp dan e-mail. Jadi semua proses penulisan buku ini berlangsung secara online, tanpa kami bertiga (saya, Mbak Carra, Mbak Melly) bertemu satu sama lain.

Agustus – Oktober 2016

Menjadi bulan-bulan penulisan naskah buku ini, di mana saya menuliskan setiap bagiannya di antara kesibukan saya yang saat itu sedang bertugas menjadi dokter internsip di salah satu rumah sakit. Di mana saya harus berbagi waktu antara kewajiban & tugas-tugas saya sebagai seorang dokter internsip, sekaligus kewajiban saya dalam menulis naskah buku ini. Luar biasa memang, jika dipikir-pikir lagi terkadang saya sendiri pun tidak percaya saya mampu untuk menyelesaikan semuanya. Alhamdulillah, tidak ada yang terbengkalai baik tugas profesi saya maupun  dalam penulisan buku ini. Terima kasih untuk semua pihak yang men-support saya, termasuk Mbak Antik dan Mbak Carra.

November 2016

Saya dan Mbak Carra melihat design sampul untuk pertama kalinya. Senang sekali melihat warna sampul yang cerah dan penuh semangat, sesuai dengan harapan dari diterbitkannya buku ini.

Akhir Desember 2016

Akhirnya Mbak Antik mengabari saya dan Mbak Carra bahwa buku “Open Your Mind” sudah selesai dicetak dan siap untuk dipublikasikan pada tahun 2017. MasyaAllah, antara terharu campur bahagia saya mengetahuinya. Lagi-lagi masih ada perasaan antara percaya dan tidak percaya akhirnya buku ini terbit.

Pertengahan Januari 2017 saya mendapatkan buku “Open Your Mind” untuk pertama kalinya. Untuk pertama kalinya saya bisa melihat, memegang, dan membaca hasil karya saya. Sungguh terharu dan tidak pernah saya membayangkan sebelumnya bahwa saya mampu menghasilkan tulisan-tulisan seperti itu, bahwa tulisan-tulisan saya dapat menjadi sebuah buku. Belum lagi ketika saya berkunjung ke salah satu toko buku, saya melihat ada buku “Open Your Mind” di sana. Sungguh rasa haru yang luar biasa. Alhamdulillah, terima kasih kepada semua pihak yang membantu dalam proses pembuatan buku ini. Semoga buku ini dapat memberikan hal positif yang sama bagi para pembacanya. Aamiin…

Januari 2017 kemarin, Puji Tuhan, ada buku saya yang bisa kembali terbit, meski bukan buku solo melainkan buku kolaborasi.

Sekitar bulan Mei 2016, saya mendapatkan email dari seseorang yang to the point mengajak saya untuk membuat sebuah buku handlettering. Saat itu sih konsep yang ditawarkan adalah membuat buku coloring book dengan handlettering yang kontennya seputar motivasi bisnis atau semacamnya. Saya menawarkan beberapa ide untuk bisa dieksekusi pada Mbak Melly, pihak Metagraf yang mengirimkan email pada saya tersebut, yang kemudian akan didiskusikan dulu dengan pihak penerbit.

Beberapa waktu kemudian, Mbak Melly kembali mengirimkan email, mengabarkan bahwa konsep buku yang disetujui oleh penerbit adalah interactive book dengan handlettering, namun kontennya akan berupa motivasi hidup bagi para hijaber muda. Dan, akan ada yang berkolaborasi dengan saya untuk membuat kontennya, yaitu hijab blogger bernama Indah Riyanti Putri.

Saya belum kenal. Hahaha.
Akhirnya ya kepoin deh. Ternyata beliau ini adalah seorang dokter. Tulisan-tulisannya di blog ya seputar review beauty products dan inspirasi sehari-hari. Ah, cucoklah ya.

Akhirnya disepakati, sistem kerjanya Indah yang menulis konten, kemudian akan mengirimkannya pada saya untuk kemudian saya buat ilustrasinya.

Dan, sekitar bulan September pun kami berhasil menyelesaikannya. Sedikit molor sih, tapi untunglah nggak terlalu lama.

Ini dia buku “Open Your Mind” yang saat ini sudah bisa didapatkan di toko-toko buku di seluruh Indoensia.

Beberapa ilustrasi handlettering yang bisa kamu warnai di dalamnya adalah sebagai berikut.

Nah, kalau mau ngintip lebih banyak lagi, ini ada videonya yang saya unggah ke Instagram.
