Their world has changed. None will live; none now will rest. The dark lord will unleash his Goncools and vampire minions. A sci-fi cyberpunk fantasy.
It all begins with a single word, a sentence; a phrase that is put on paper.
Humans’ love affair with literature began well over 100,000 years ago when Homo sapiens needed to exchange words and ideas. From cave paintings to the bible, first our early ancestors, then modern man, have been putting our knowledge and our understanding of the world on record. Man has always sought to share his knowledge with others, and through the ages, that knowledge would be extracted, absorbed and passed on to others.
From Shakespeare and Hemmingway to Tolkien and Rowling, writers have used their imaginations and sparked generations of writers to unravel their thoughts and create a vast number of tales to be told. Readers applaud them for their creativity and asked for more. Books are sold by the many and enjoyed by millions. Literature makes us laugh, cry, fear and express, all emotions brought on by the unforgettable tales told by the author.
Yet by now wouldn’t one imagine all that could be said has been? Is there a purpose for us to continue to weave and create such tales? Novels can consist of 100,000 words; some much more. The journey to complete one novel can span many months, even years. To devote such time to a single book requires true passion and true commitment.
One thing is certain: writers write because we enjoy the process and want to share our stories with the rest of the world; an endless quest to share our tales that all began thousands of years ago.
