True Hard Work is Accomplished Behind the Scenes
We live in the age of social media, and I love updating my followers on the progress of my trilogy, Lord of Columbia, which is actually planned to be two trilogies, kind of like a Star Wars.
Any time I reach a new milestone, I’ll let my followers know. After two months of switching to a deeper point-of-view for my main character, Cain, the ignorant college athlete whose life is about to derail, I made the announcement on Twitter.
But, it took two full months to edit all nine-hundred-plus pages of three manuscripts, while at the same time discovering several typos in each work, but no plot holes. I’d wake up early, as in before six in the morning to get some work in, routinely stay up until one or two in the morning, and even sneak in writing at my place of work.
If the above isn’t passion, I don’t know what is, because yes, I’d be willing to sacrifice a living to get my writing out into the mainstream.
Not because I feel I’m a good writer.
Not because I’m vein.
Not because I think I’ll be an overnight sensation, because I don’t intend for that to happen.
But, because of the trilogy’s message, especially that in Book Three, which is only under a working title, is the true star of the work.
If you’ve been following My Freedom Flame for a while, I talk about pursuing passion, even if it comes at a cost.
But, there’s more to it for the writer. We must get our messages out into the mainstream, at any given cost, because they are held dearly to us.
So, what must we do?
Write for our message. Sure, we may have memorable characters, plots, and scenes. And sure, we definitely want to monetize our work and make an income off of it in time, but the message and theme must reign supreme, or we have nothing.
I wrote an article yesterday talking about how I was in fitness for all the wrong reasons, but I’m in writing for all the correct reasons.
Nothing holds more truth than this, because again, I don’t need fame. In fact, I wish I could do all this in an anonymous setting, as I test as an 85% introvert, but I can’t.
The message and themes in Lord of Columbia is what keeps me going, risking my own primary job to get this thing out into the mainstream.
As you all know, I research sensitive, and I mean sensitive topics, as I’m doing a research series on both the Truth About the Deep State, and the Post-1994 South African Economic Debacle, plus dipping into nation and IQ.
Guys, these are sensitive topics no one wants to talk about; they’re unspeakable in mainstream media. And if one does bring it up in the mainstream setting, they’re either suspended or fired.
So, in addition to risking my own job, I’m also risking being labeled so many names I’m not, as the media in America loves using demonizing terms like alt-right sympathizer, neo-Nazi, anti-Semite, and all sorts of names that are, well, not necessarily politically correct. And I’ll be the first to say I’m none of these.
In truth, there is a discrepancy between, say, ethnicity and IQ, but it doesn’t mean everyone of certain ethnicities share the same IQ. I’ll admit I’m anti-Zionist, which is Jewish supremacy. I’m also anti-White Supremacist, anti-Islamic Supremacist, and we’ll just say I’m anti-Supremacist.
It’s especially true when I bring up ethnicity and IQ because, well, my own ethnicity does not have the highest IQ rating, per the research, so the left really can’t claim I have a bias.
But, back to the point of this article; all I’m saying is while I announce to my small following what I’ve been doing, and when a new work is being released, I’m spending many more hours behind the scenes, working, crafting, and doing all I can to perfect my trilogies.
I’d like to thank all of my readers for coming across My Freedom Flame, please come back soon.
