The Writer’s Tao – MC Simon
Two years ago, when I was told to consider the option of becoming a writer, all the cogwheels inside my brain started to turn rapidly.
Oh! Did I just say “rapidly”? Actually, a hurricane started up inside my brain. The storm met up with a volcano, and soon all my being was under fire.
“Why not?” asked my heart. “The man you love sees it inside you.”
“You should think more,” argued my brain. “You have a stable engineering career ; why should you bother?”
“But… what about the dream–my childhood dream? It was told that I was already a writer”, whispered my soul.
The soul’s victory came fast. The project manager residing inside my brain planned the details.
In a blink, the writer inside me was born.
After the first two published books, again my life turned to an interesting direction. Because of my passion for blogging, soon I started earning as a web content writer.
What’s next? Of course… quitting my engineering job to become a full-time writer.
But… there is one thing that was not mentioned above. My first published book is not the first book I started. My beloved unfinished novel, “Memories of an Arcturian” has been locked away, awaiting rediscovery.
But… I have great expectations now.
Because 2016’s JuNoWriMo starts.
“Memories of an Arcturian” is a blend of personal experiences in the corporeal life and the parallel dimensions of my dreams—dreams that started in my childhood. Do strict borders exist between these worlds? What are these boundaries?
What is true and what is fantasy will be up to YOU, the reader .
12-year-old girl has a revelation one day while at school and decides to run away from home. She wants to find her true family which she suddenly thinks it’s not from this planet. She takes a small luggage bag, writes a goodbye letter to her parents and leaves home. While walking the streets without having any direction she meets a mysterious beggar who finally convinces her to go back home. But they continue to meet almost daily. Until one day, he takes her on a trip.
