….umm, so I started doing another blog as well.
It my “facebook” page, and is quite a bit more popular and easier to use, than this page. Mine is here.
It has been a very interesting last few weeks for me. First off, I finally “finished” my first book. It is not complete yet, as the graphic novel part of the book is not yet organized. The book is something of a riddle, and my early editors have both asked me, first off, if I think I’m crazy (the book gives that impression and leaves it as an open question).
To address that, not at all. I am starting to feel a bit like Wonko the Sane, standing in the middle of fishbowl, outside the rest of the world.
I am trying to keep up on that other site with some of my new stories. As I have become more comfortable in explaining my “answer” (in my book I think I may have solved “logic” and “math”), I have seen some curious things change in my life.
One, I have much more energy, generally, and have been going pretty full bore each day, trying to reach my goal of being a simple, paid, productive, writer. I have chosen a rather strange path to this goal, asking roughly $100 a year for my services (which includes a book each year). I’m trying to stay, if possible, outside the corporate path to this goal, and am hoping to find a few people willing to take a bet on me and my publishing method (it’s based on the Open Source metaphor, with a twist to keep money flowing in to the central author). I would love to, and will eventually, be giving my book away, but for right now the high price comes with some serious perks.
With that comes some ad-free djing, personal chats and counseling, a very advanced “sounding board” (my brain) which can be used to bounce stuff off of, other surprises, and some peace of mind for me. Peace of mind has been a difficult thing for me to attain, and the book is largely about my quest for the same.
Suffice it to say though, I am shooting for the stars here, and it has proven (as per) more difficult than I imagined, and I thought it would be difficult.
So I’m just going to keep pushing forward and upward and trying things out until it clicks in people’s heads that a) I know what I’m talking about and b) I’m pretty good at it and c) I should be able to make a living at it without totally selling out.
If you are interesting in purchasing a copy of the book, subscribe to the site (link up top) and it should be in your hands before the end of the month, depending on what the early editors (who seem to want to give me everything but what I ask for) say in response. So far the feedback on writing style has been good to great to excellent and the content, which I think is the best part, has gotten mixed reviews.
When you write a book about God and consciousness, expect to ruffle a few feather.
