I haven’t been posting here as regularly as usual. Did you miss me? The reason I have been a little quiet and absent on my blog is that I’ve been working on something big. I wrote a book. The first draft is finished and it’s just being proof-read now. I have to look at how to make it available, but I expect to be able to offer it as a print-on-demand or e-book.
The book started as a 15,000 word blog post, but I was so driven by the subject matter, that it turned into a 115,000 word book. It’s a book about the dangers of not staying true to yourself and working on your dream, diligently and consistently. You’d be surprised at what that can do to you. I was. More about this later, when it is more available, but suffice it to say that writing it has taken all month. There’s a lot of neuroscience in it and some pretty alarming conclusions.
I learnt a lot, while writing the book and came to entirely different conclusions to what I thought I would, when I started the project. It was also emotionally demanding to write, because I indentify with quite a lot of the subject matter (as do, I suspect, many artists).
Anyway, watch this space. I hope to get the project up and out there soon-ish. Now, it’s back to the music composition and building a web site to make it all available. No rest for the wicked. More about the book, as I get closer to knowing a release date. It will be priced affordably and I hope the information does some genuine good for some people.
That’s enough of a teaser. All will be revealed soon. I hope.
