Tonight I read something strange that could really get your imagination going. It was just a simple meme, but I tend to overthink about the things that spark my creative side. It went something like this:
“What if there are multiple yous living in alternate dimensions and your dreams are you viewing what your other selves are doing.” (I’m not sure who said this. I only know it’s a meme somewhere.)
That really makes you wonder sometimes.
If by some totally random chance this is true, I don’t know if I should feel sorry or be completely jealous of my other mes. Some of them live crazy, exciting lives, while others are constantly fighting to get away from the bad guys. Of course, I’d be all over the me that has the super powers and saves the human race from total destruction. Then again, I wouldn’t mind being the bad guy who takes over the world. (Just kidding!)
I suppose it’s statements like this one that really works at my imagination and drives me to write even more. I live through my characters and let them do the risky events that keep them alive and most of the time there are a lot of bad guys chasing after them. In all honestly, I don’t think I’d last a day with the other mes in my head. I’d be on the ground, in the fetal position, waiting for it all to be over with.
Well, the time has come to set out with publishing Eternity. I began the arduous task of formatting this evening. I’m not sure exactly when the release date will be, but I’m hoping for later this year.
This is the first of two books, set in the future during not-so-great times. It has a hint of science fiction and time travel, but it’s mostly a thrill-ride that will keep you hooked until the very end.
More details will come a little later. I just wanted to give the world an update.
Well, I think I finally finished the final draft of Eternity. I don’t know what it is, but every time I read it, it sucks me in and it’s hard to focus on editing rather than enjoying my work. But, I cracked down on myself and went line by line in vigorous editing until I feel that it is perfect. I’ve been sending out query letters the past few weeks (that explains why I haven’t been on for a while) plus I’ve started the untitled sequel.
I’m looking forward to my science fiction, suspenseful thriller to be out to the public one day.
Lately I find myself working on various projects at the same time. I believe that’s a big reason why I haven’t posted much lately. My mind is wrapped around all of my other ideas that I haven’t been able to find the time to actually sit down and write a post. So, here it is.
I’ve finished a novel, 117,000 words long, titled Eternity. This is the first one of two books and I’m currently working on the second on. It’s untitled as of right now, but it’ll come to me. With this one, I’ve chosen to set aside my self publishing ambitions for a moment and focus on finding an agent that will land me the great pleasure of accepting my work. Naturally, I’ve gotten a few rejections back, with one of them being more positive than negative.
It’s a tough road to pour your heart out into something you can’t imagine not doing and risking everything on the off chance at making it big. Of course, I have no intention of letting the rejections or the negativity get me down or ruin my life and whatnot. I’ve come to terms with using those rejections and forcing myself to try harder. Even if it takes longer than I anticipated, I don’t plan on stopping until I find my needle in the haystack and land an agent. Who knows, maybe one day I’ll be seeing my book being transformed into a movie and my name will be on the big screen.
For now, I’m happy to sit back, let my fingers bring my imagination to life, and never give up.
