We trust the Gods
Yet fear them
We fear the demons
Yet trust them to stay out of our way
Would we crave for light the way we do
If there never was a moment dark?
And would we be happy the same way
If we didn’t know what it meant to be sad?
Questions exist to be answered
Complications are there to be solved
Challenges arise to be conquered
Failures are there to be won
One exists to give other the life
The duality prevails to keep things whole
The Yin Yang of life is beautifully simple
Yet the Yin Yang remains unknown
Abandon the predictable
Isn’t worth it
What’s worth it
Won’t be easy
Inspired by BBH London’s “Black Sheep” ad campaign line (When the world zigs, zag) for Levi’s.
In which, Gladwell suggests:
He arrives at this magic number after studying the practicing patterns of several individuals who are the masters of their craft — right from Beatles to Bill Gates.
I haven’t finished the book, but this current chapter is about the good old war between innate talent and deliberate practise.
Let’s see who wins. 😉
Designed a speculative book cover after a long time. Had so much fun, it left me wondering why I don’t do it more often!
The smoke could do with more work, I think. It’s far from the finished work. But I’m fairly satisfied with the overall manipulation of the hand, so I wanted to share with you all.
It’s still a work in progress, so, as always, any feedback would be most welcome. 🙂
Halfway through October, writers all across the globe are preparing for the big writing event in November that is NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).
Very quickly then, for those who are not familiar with it… NaNoWriMo is an annual event, where writers all over the world take on a mammoth of a challenge of writing 50 thousand words in one month. The reward for all the trouble is internal satisfaction, peer motivation, and a feeling of camaraderie. Also, it really helps to get the 1st draft done! (see also Camp NaNoWriMo?)
For this year’s NaNo, which is my third, I am trying to continue (or rather revamp) the story that went unfinished during last NaNo. The title of the book is “Liberty Crisis: A Book of The Shade Saga”, and it is a fantasy book set in my The Shade Saga world.
As the world of writers busy themselves in planning, plotting, or simply ideating their novels, I kept myself busy by trying to come up with book cover designs! Procrastination at its best.
So what do you think? Which one do you like better?
And are you participating too? If yes, how about buddying-up!?
Writing is all about finding the courage to write. And courage is all about realizing that some things are more important than fear.
