I am writing a book called , “Reflections of a Happy Dead Person “, it was started many years ago. Then like many a novel people start, never completed
This little novel has had new life breathed into it, I am allowing myself to be free and let it take on a new life. Which means pretty much starting from scratch with a totally blank canvas and no agenda
As I am writing I don’t even know what is coming next, it’s as if the book is acquiring it’s own personalities and is writing itself. ..I like this. A story nobody has never heard is being written for me 😉
4 years ago I started a book called “Reflections of a Happy Dead Person.” It was semi autobiographical, obviously the title of me being dead not being true!
The book was wrote from a pretend perspective of an idea about the afterlife and reflecting back over my life
The problem was although a good idea, it was laborious writing it as the story was quite boring. Most people’s lives are quite boring, they have highs and lows but not enough to fill a book . I want to state “boring ” is good, if your life was a never ending roller coater it would make a great book but a challenge to live with
Today I restarted by book but this time it is exciting me because although it has the same title and very roughly the same story everything is fantastical, outrageous and not true at all, much more fun to write
Ok…it may not be quite another world but when I enter, I loose this world and step into what feels like another world
My reality shifts, the people I know change. The air becomes heavy with anticipation for what will happen next.
Real world time stops, the familiar comfort of this other world takes over
Yes. …I am reading the next Dan Brown book(Origin) …everyone leave me alone. .I need to know what happens next!
A year ago today I launched my first ever book. ..yup get me 😉
It had the catchy title of,” 30 days to change your life. ” OK, it’s not going to set the world on fire and if I was a teacher I would probably give it a grade of, “could do better” or “lacks personality ”
But I still did it…the second book, third book, fourth book. …I will be better 👍
If there is a little bit of you that wants to check out my ,”could do better book” it’s still available on Kindle for an amazing 99p and here’s the link
