No the title of this post isn’t a typo, but yet another attempt of witty word play. The Hall of information is back from quite a lengthy absence. But why have I been away?
My body had decided to recall an old friend called asthma in between two weekends that I played Robin Hood in a local amateur pantomine. After every arrow fired, men in tights danced and damsels in distress had been saved it was quite safe to say my anatomy was both physically and mentally drained.
So he’s pulling the sick card, I hear some of you say?
No but I mean drained, my right ear is still currently blocked (a sinus issue the NHS has led me to believe)
Quite honestly my energy to blog at the best of times is lousy so throw all of the above in and the Hall of information is a desolate place.
Seems quite bleak, but in adversity comes the best of stories. I have thrown myself back into the words of my novels and never before have I been so driven to write!
A week ago I printed my first novel in its entirety. Holding what I have created for the first time filled me with a drive to continue on. A real book written by me in my hands!
Unpublished, I continue with 2 full novels and a third in progress. Many times I ask myself why carry on with writing Clark Thorn 3? Nobody has offered me any representation for the first book.
Much like when I looked into the audience of Iver Heath new village hall and said to myself,
“I love this place”
I do the same every time I open Microsoft word and look at the pages I have written,
“I love this story and that’s all that matters to me”
People will always doubt and refuse to like my facebook page. They simply don’t believe I will ever get published. That’s fine, it feels better to prove someone wrong anyway.
I am willing to take my story through hell and out the other side to get it out there, and the reason I do it, because my dream is for the world to see my work. Giving up isn’t an option now nor will it be an option later.
There are only a few things you need to be a success in this world at any level:
Talent, which I don’t believe I have an ounce of (so not vital).
A good attitude, check sort of.
Hard work, (pivotal to anybody who is successful)
I love performing on stage but since I was twelve I have loved writing and telling stories. My future will always side to written word.
Right now I am writing book 3 with publication of book 1 firmly in sight!
It will happen one day, that’s a fact.
The Hall of information is back people, whether you like robot criminals or not!
