Writing a book is a long process that often spans over years. For me, it has been ten years. So, it shouldn’t matter too much if it takes just a few more weeks for final publication!
Writing this book has been a long, exhausting struggle, sort of like an illness that keeps recurring. Yet, at the same time, as every day passes, as I continue to make final edits and move onto the second book, writing becomes a victory against transience. I have created a world and need to see the stories through in my mind’s eye.
A book, a story if you will, is an event in consciousness. The author’s goal isn't to replicate reality, but to change and recreate his sense of it. It is as if the author is putting on a performance in his or her brain and inviting the reader to watch.
Soon, you will be able to watch my performance!
