My previous book titled, "My Previous Book", has been seen in various trash cans all over the planet. I find this disillusioning. You would think, in this day and age, that people would recycle and put said book in the appropriate bin.
I have been swamped, nothing to do with the British weather, I have been swamped with aspiring authors asking me what's the secret to writing a novel. Yes, slight exaggeration, but I've had a number of aspiring writers forward me their work and asked for my opinion. I've been interacting with one writer, who is doing a very secretive science fiction concept book that entails some hopefully exciting news.
I once wrote a science fiction posting. Thought it might be obvious that the narrator in the story was talking about the sighting of UFO's from a world we are familiar with. The narrator was talking about witnessing people from earth and wondering if these sightings had peaceful intentions. Somehow, the article got lost in translation. Thus, the posting backfired. I thought the ending paragraph might be a bit of a clue. "I stared up into the darkened sky. A neon storm raged and distorted the view of our two purple moons. I thought of what our world had witnessed. Would the lights and the beings within, return? Where do they come from? If they do return; will they come in peace?" There's a lot to be said about writing science fiction that captures the imagination. If you have the time or the inclination, here is the link to my attempt at science fiction, Where Do They Come From?
Another one of my books, written previously to My Previous Book, titled, "How Not To Write A Book", is now available on 'eekPublishing'. A few um 'highlights' of How Not To Write A Book, include alternate definitions to words. Here are some examples. "Condescending", definition: 'prisoner abseiling'. "Analog", definition: 'A diary of all the crap times in your life'. "Analogy", definition, 'the scientific study of assholes'. Indeed, How Not To Write A Book, is strewn with the finest of grammar anarchy, complete with run-on sentences that frankly, leave you gasping for breath.......
Now for something completely serious. I have the utmost admiration for writers, aspiring and published. If you are still waiting for that day that you realise your publishing dream, hold on to that dream and do your best, with dedication and determination, to see your dream become that cherished reality.
My next book, "Fifty One Shades Of Shit", is almost complete. No writing 'constipation' with this one. As a matter of fart, I mean, as a matter of fact, I'm all flushed with excitement knowing this book will be must reading for a wide variety of folks, notably sewage treatment workers. And with that, this posting has reached the bottom.
