Conceiving a Book

desiderata 6

desiderata 2Today I started  writing a book. Why? Because life is one continuous narrative and having worked for 44 years, I have something good to share. How does one start? Begin reviewing one’s body of work.

A body of work has a head and heart. Feel the  pulse of stories by tapping ones’ head and heart which  grow synapse trees. Each synapse tree can remember a time and place where people worked with you, then write without thinking of any form. Listen and  let the hands write manually. Fill up three pages every morning without editing.

After eight weeks, use a laptop and encode what you wrote. As images rise, talk to these images and create the stories.  Another month,make doodles until the  stories come alive. After four months of tapping one’s head and heart, a  book is born.

That is how we  conceive a  book. Short and sweet. No caesarean surgery needed.
