Project Write A Book

Thoughts On Being An Author

There are many activities in life that can bring a person happiness. Having a wonderful life is just the start, there are some things in life that everyone should try at least once.

For me, this includes having written a book, or two. Being an author has a special kind of rewards to it. To say that writing an entire book with your own two hands and publishing it is a feat would be an understatement.

Writing your first book will make you pull your hair out. Learning to think in words and writing well, while trying to keep the plot strait, and not loose sight of the goals, it is quite the task to perform.

It gets easier once you write on a regular basis. However the first book will always have a special place in your heart as something you can be proud of having done. It takes an incredible amount of focus and attention to detail to write an entire book.

It is something everyone should do. Really! I think most people should write at least one book in their lifetime. With the technology we have available today, it is not only possible; it is also very practical.

Learn To Write, Learn To Think

People that write, are also people that read. My thinking in this matter is that if people were to write more often, then maybe they would start reading a lot more too.

While there is no proof that writers read more, I think it is sensible to believe that people that write read more often. I know my ability to read and write have improved over the years.

However, I have not undertaken the massive effort to write a new book in some ten years. While I have dabbled in short stories off and on over the years, actually writing a full book; daunting and frightening.

This may be one reason I recommend that others take on this project of writing their first book, because people need the experience of writing that first book and being scared shitless and out of their minds with trying to edit it.

I want the best for you. I really do. Hence, my suggestion that you take the time, learn to write; then start writing your first book. If you start now; four or five years from now, you might make it happen.

Results Are Few, But Worth It!!

Don’t expect success. Don’t expect rave reviews. However, what you will learn about the process and the effort it takes to complete this project are invaluable. It’s the kind of feeling you couldn’t get from watching TV.

Take the time, start today. Write the book that you want to read. Someone has to, because if they don’t; this world will be book poor in no time. There is a quote: Books will get you through times with no money; but money won’t get you through times without books.

That is likely very true. I wouldn’t know; the only thing I have are my books. It might be nice to have a taste of what the other side feels like, but I think I will keep most of my books.

Like I said, there is no experience like writing and publishing your first book. It’s a gigantic task. It takes months or years of effort, and will make you question what you know. You have to write something that you really believe in. See where it takes you; you might like it.

Please write something that puts beauty back into life. We have enough problems with life as it is. However, the issues of how to resolve conflict are subjects of entire library’s. Yet, remember to write something with a sense of hope, and make it beautiful so that the reader wants to read it.

Have Some Love

This takes being really in love with the words you write. You have to have a respect for them. Words and ideas can change the world, given enough time and skill.

As far as writing a new book; I have my doubts about taking on this task in the near future. Maybe someday, when I have the idea that really sits with me like a ton of bricks. My interest is really in putting something beautiful back into life. I’m going to have to work on it for a while.

Thus, you should start today. Because it may take many years for your book to come to completion. It is an important project that everyone should undertake once in their lifetime. It is also something that everyone should have to endure too. It will change your opinion of the task of writing good books.

Maybe if enough people write their first book, they will start to appreciate what good writing is really about? Maybe. One can always have hope. Maybe your book will change the world; give it a shot.

The Humans Vacation

When Tomorrow Is October

Looking back, the life we want and the life we have don’t always look the same. Sometimes they are very different. And knowing what path to take at a young age is seldom obvious.

Seems sometimes you have to fly by the seat of your own pants. Sometimes things are too easy to be fun, other times the difficulty exceeds the skill we have. That isn’t to say it isn’t still a bit of fun. It’s been fun, it hasn’t been great. Sometimes I would dare to say it hasn’t even been good.

Life has kicked the shit out of me more than once. It has been rough going some days. It did however get a lot better. Maybe it won’t always be total crap; things change. People change. Sometimes others are too dumb to see that people have changed. It isn’t always obvious. But what is these days?

I’m bored with the status quo in this world. Life is a lot of mundane boring and trivial times. Seems sometimes its necessary, but it isn’t always much fun. The world is changing. Times are changing. Maybe some will survive this world? No one really knows. Life is rough. A lot of people are unhappy.

I enjoy what I do. I really do. It just seems that I want more from my life. I’m getting old, too old to do some things I would like to try, and should have done twenty years ago.

Life has its ways of making the years pass by, and before you know it; Wham! You’re eighty years old in a nursing home talking about how your car was the best, because you liked it. Life does that shit to people. Happens everyday.

The quality of life can be understood. By how much we love, or the lack of love in our lives. Love is important. There are other things in life that make life worthy of our time. It is important to have our priorities in order. Seems this world has forgotten what matters. Does anyone even know in this modern world? I wonder?

There are things that help pass the time. Music helps. It is a good start in the right direction. So is making music. That is a good positive thing to be doing. There comes a time, when you start to understand things in new ways. I just wish that my understanding would have come to me sooner. There was a lot of wasted years in between the time that I was too young to know better and the time that the light came on.

Poor Instruction Make Junk

Seems sometimes we have been given bad instructions. That is something I would like to change about this world. Seems the information and teaching needs to change.

The human race needs to go on vacation. Maybe that will give the God enough time to clean this crap up and make it better. Maybe they will be gone long enough to make a difference. In my humble opinion they need to be re-educated. Life is rough.

Most things in life only come the hard way. Seems that we forget the easy way doesn’t always bring results we want. Life needs to change for the better and right quick. It is getting better in some ways. Still we have a long ways to go.

My past blog posts have talked about some of the problems, and offered solutions to some of the more serious problems I see taking place in this world. No one is really reading, I wonder if anyone would ever notice? Maybe someday; like in a hundred years or more.

Sad state of affairs in this world. People are unhappy. Sometimes they aren’t really sure why they are unhappy, but they know something doesn’t add up. Almost as if someone has pulled the wool over their eyes, and they stubbed their toe on something they couldn’t even see.

Maybe that is a good way to put it. A lot of people want life to change. I know that I do. Too often we are in a rush. Everyone going at the speed of life. Sometimes we miss the finer points of what life is about. Maybe we will wake up in time. The world could be a better place to live.

The world has become a cruel place to live. Please start being humble and being kind to each other. I think this is important advice. Life has to get better, and some people just want to be understood. Or loved. There isn’t enough love in life for this world to sustain the current pace.

Love and Kindness

If love and kindness become luxury goods, no one can afford to stay in this world. It just wouldn’t work for anyone. Life has to get better, and people have to change for the better.

The world needs peace. The world needs kindness. Do what you can to be the change that makes the world a little better for everyone. It does matter, and you matter; be the light in a dark place. Once others start to see, they can be lights also.

Maybe life will change. Like I said, the human race needs a long vacation from this world. They need to re-charge their batteries. I think a lot of them have become a little too cranky. Maybe they will get what they think they need and be happier soon.

May you have peace of mind.

Thoughts

Life is what God and men make it. Seems humans haven’t been doing a very good job keeping things in good shape, or running smoothly. My thoughts about this are that peoples attitudes and priorities are not in line with what matters the most.

Seems everyone these days is kind of bent in some way. Maybe this world is some kind of junk box? There is beauty here, if you look for it. However, you won’t find it if you’re looking in the wrong places.

We have to get back to what will really make us happy. I’ve been thinking about this. Sometimes what we think will make us happy, in the long run; really doesn’t satisfy. The world needs peace, humans have forgotten how to be kind. They have lost touch with their humility.

Something needs to change in this world. Most humans aren’t thinking, they don’t listen; and they don’t want to be wrong about anything. Humans need to get back to always being beginners. When everyone thinks they are experts, there is a lot of problems.

This is what we are seeing today. Everyone in their own eyes thinks they are experts, and none of them ever want to admit they are wrong. Because they don’t want to look bad; even for a second.

When you have the right frame of mind, everything else is easy. Too many people today have the wrong frame of mind about their lives. This makes things get out of perspective, and people loose touch with their priorities and then their attitude gets all bent.

Life has to get better. It really does. At this rate, the world will blink and be out of existence. There has to be some changes made in life. Start by being humble in your life. Then work on being kind to everyone. Work on your thoughts until you can live with yourself, and others are willing to live with you.

When everyone gets in the game, life gets better for everyone. That is what we want. Too many today are positive they are right about the wrong stuff. They need to work on their priorities and their attitudes until they are being humble and kind.

Here is some music to start your meditation with. Give it a listen!

Books I have Read

In all fairness, I’m not reading much these days. I have been focused on writing and doing creative things. In addition to writing, I have been making music, playing with making video, and doing photography. That said, I’m including a link to all the books I have read in the last twenty years.

I have however read a number of books in my lifetime. About a hundred and forty to be told. If you are interested in seeing the books that I have put on my shelf, check out my goodreads account.

You might find something new to read. There are a few not on there yet too. I guess I need to update my list again.

I’m thinking that I might start reading again, if I can find books worthwhile to read. Its tough these days. I’m a picky eater when it comes to what I want to put in my head.

My books haven’t sold a single copy. Its tough tits, I had hoped to sell some of my books. Seems I’m not established as a writer in this world and in this day and age. Maybe someday.

You can check out my books on my website: MY Digital Chaos, while you are there, check out the photography too.

This is the current URL for my channel. It isn’t very pretty.

Please subscribe to my Youtube channel and share this message with a few of your friends that might be interested. It would help me a lot to have this for my brand to have a custom URL.

Surprise For You

Read This: Never Human!!

After thinking about it for a very long time. I want to open your eyes. So you can see clearly, and maybe understand a little better.

  • You want to be a politician?
  • You want to be a business man?
  • You want to be an actor?
  • You want to be a rock star?
  • You want to be a dictator?

Really after giving it careful consideration, I never want to be a human. It would never be enough. Not for me. Even if I lived a thousand lives as a human, I would at the end of the day; still be a human.

This would never do. Not for me. Consider this: I would run a restaurant that serves fifty people an hour. I would control a staff of thirty people that are human shells that I control.

They would serve every dish perfectly on the spot. This would just be the icing on the cake for me. Because you should see what I really do for fun.

Really after giving it careful consideration, being human would never be enough for me. I want life to be a lot better. I’m tired of the limits that being human has. I’m tired of the disrespect I’ve been shown, and I’m really tired of the oppression I’m being subjected to.

The truth is, life has to get better. These people live like house cats. They think a living death is really living. There has to be a way to tell the living from the dead. Would you know the difference in this world?

These humans are magnetic ink, they are living clay with spirits dead. They are nothing more than warm bodies with clean faces. If you ask me they are little more than warm sacks of shit.

The disrespect they have shown me is almost unbearable. I’ve asked them to be kinder, it seems they don’t listen. Damn tired of this abuse. It’s been wrong of them to treat my kind like this. They know it’s wrong, yet; they do it anyways.

That is cruel. Being human would never be enough for me. There is so much more that I could be doing with my life. My skills and and talents are being wasted living like a zombie cat shit, in this world that doesn’t understand me, or my kind.

Life has to get a lot better. Right quick. On the bounce!

Until Further Notice

Until Further Notice

No one is reading. The New York Times had an article about how no one is reading or watching TV. See the Article here. Until further notice, I’m just going to write for myself.

The realization that no one is going to pay attention to me has become very real. I had believed that someone would have noticed me and my work. It simply isn’t going to happen. I’m not happy about that.

The realization that no one cares, not even a little. The best a man can hope for in this toxic culture is to be autonomous from the world. There is no other solution.

In Conclusion

Therefore, this world and its culture are very toxic. It is unfortunate that the world has to be like this. It could have been better. My life could have been better. They were too cruel to care, and their toxic behavior has been noted.

Because we wanted life to be better. That isn’t going to happen.

So much for a better world for everyone!!

Today’s Toxic Culture

Someone Save Us From Today’s Toxic Culture

The modern world, it has what seems like everything a person could want. There is a little bit of everything, and there is always something for whatever kind of taste a person may have.

It also comes complete with about five billion idiots. There is where the problem is. These damn idiots are toxic to the modern culture that would allow a person to thrive in today’s modern world. This culture has become toxic, and if not treated will poison itself and die.

However, this toxic culture leaves virtually no one unscathed. Everyone is feeling the effects of the modern toxic culture. No one is happy with the way this is. Therefore, everyone is upset about something. And some people are actually making money from being upset about stupid stuff. They actually go out looking for something to be mad about.

There is a song about them. The song is “Paradise” by KMFDM. It talks about how this planet is a paradise for assholes. Because, it has not escaped my notice that today’s modern culture is toxic. People are afraid, and some people want them to be afraid.

What we need is someone to save us from this toxic culture. Someone is going to have to identify the parts of society that aren’t working and make adjustments. All too often the only thing driving today’s modern culture today is politics.

Leaders Have Failed

It’s unfortunate that we don’t have any true leaders. The world could use a lot more of people being right in the head. Today’s modern toxic culture is a battle of buffoons.

Today’s toxic culture is set to self implode. At the rate this is going, the world will blink and be out of existence. Too many people are not thinking, too many people have forgotten how to be wise. Seems everyone is talking, but no one is listening.

I’ve seen the neglect that I’m being exposed to. It is unhealthy. I’m not able to change it, and I’m angry about the way this situation is working out. No one gives a shit.

In some ways, we need someone to stop this society from imploding. Something has to be done to bring back the understanding and patience that are needed. People need to be a lot kinder. I’ve been saying this for years, yet; no one listens.

This toxic culture has problems that it is hurting itself. It really is, if a person were to act like the modern culture is behaving they would lock them up and medicate them. People don’t see the harm they are doing, and no one is leading us to salvation.

Someone Save Us From Toxic Culture

Therefore, someone is going to have to teach them a lesson. First be kind, then seek to understand. Then after both of those items are being met, then seek to be understood. Then work peacefully to resolve the problems in ways that makes everyone happy.

A lot of people are going to have to isolate themselves from the world. Because they can not stand others different viewpoints. Too many people need an attitude adjustment. Drinking isn’t helping, nor is the television. Take some time and reset your emotional state of being and think about the problems for a while. Then talk in a reasonable way about what you know.

I’m bored with the world because in order to thrive it seems you have to be an asshole. Because, the problem is, the biggest asshole at the end of the day, is still just an asshole.

However, the point is to live in such a way that you make life better for everyone, and being the biggest asshole isn’t going to solve the problem. You have to teach them how to do better than that. The point is, people need to learn how to be better.

Therefore, instead of a culture of assholes, let’s have a culture of people that are wise, and have self mastery to be great. Because, that is better in the long run. Can you believe that would be better?

Give it some thought.
