The joy of creation


I wonder if art is a blank canvas, or blank glob of clay, or a blank page? That there is the start of something formless, shapeless, beckoning out from empty area? That the artist can see like an  iceberg peeking the water? They may not know the full shape, but wonder about the discovery. This is the joy of creation. To explore, through building.

Missing timelines


Timelines are hard for people. I'm not sure if this has to do with our own deaths, or social standings, but not meeting a timeline can be painful. For some reason we think that were less, that we could have been more organized or energetic. While it would be impossible for me to make a blanket statement regarding everyone's timelines, I can say for my own, best I can do is acceptance. I need to accept the good that I've done, with the time that I've had. That needs to be enough. Tomorrow always comes, and I don't know if that's a blessing or a curse.

The fight to write


The fight to write is not about building a fight scene. The fight to write is about finding precious few moments throughout the day. It's about finding time to write, and the inspiration at that any given moment. That can be really difficult, because you may happy thinking about something completely different. However, you still have to find some way to build value and create a new idea. That's why the fight to write is so difficult. Especially writing everyday.

Building a bridge to the Future


Time moves incredibly fast and incredibly slow. It moves incredibly slow, in the short-term. A long day feels extra-long. However it moves incredibly fast words to the years. I think this interplay of time really shows the benefit of building of royalty base. I think having something that's built, that took years, is a wonderous foundation. I can see that building a royalty Foundation will help now, in the near future, and in the long-term. I'm excited to see I can create.

The amazing thing about fiction writing


I think the importance of writing is in the  method of saying I was here today. It's that act of daily defiance, where the hours somehow are captured in a bottle. It's a matter of making something that will last, even if it's just a few words on a page. I don't believe that these words will be consumed by anyone probably other than me. Still, I'm given the option to go back and consume them. That option is not open to everyone. Only authors and people that write down what they believe and think have that option available to them. Fiction authors are able to express commonality in forms of action and adventure. Perhaps that's why fiction writing is so amazing. It allows you to capture that moment in a way that anyone can consume.

The difficulty of choosing


Thinking about what books to write can be a difficult process. It's not so much that ideas are hard to find, it's that there are so many of them. Each idea requires a lot of time and energy. So the difficulty in writing really is in figuring out which ideas are worth writing about. One way to help determine this, is to sit on an idea. If the idea survives or even weeks, then you know it has potential to be a good idea to write about.

Leveling up as a writer


Yesterday I played a game called betrayal Legacy. The purpose of the game is to destroy a monster. The other part of the game, revolves around how the game changes session to session. I think that's an interesting idea when talking about writing. The way you write royalties you make will affect how future writing and royalties work. A lot of work today, even if it doesn't make a lot of money, will help you be more productive in the future. Good royalties can help pay for new projects in the future. I think that this Legacy is a big reason to keep pursuing more and more writing. Kind of like leveling up as a writer.
