How do I live…



Oh yes, that’s how I lived my entire life ever since my memory recalls. I remember when my vessel was a kid’s size, walking in my neighborhood and answering to my neighbors and friends not by my name, I only answer when they call me Duke Fleed, a character from an old Japanese cartoon I love called Grendizer. Ninja Turtles became the next big thing so I became Leonardo afterward. I had more Aliases as a child than a senior government spy agent.

When I became older, much older I contained my world and characters inside my head, so much that eventually I stray away with my thoughts, sometimes gestures come out from me. Only my younger brother noticed them, and he knew why. My first time to ever share what’s inside my head was when I met a group of students who were discussing the making of a movie, it was about paranormal events that occur inside the students dorm. All I did was gave what I had imagined ever since I’ve been there, every time I looked at the escape ladder, the back alley or even the very unusual set of keys the doorman held… I realized how blessed I was for having a retained imaginative mind.

I believe it is important for a writer to never grow up, or should I say, never forget how it feels to be amazed, and through that, writers will know how to make readers retain or regain their child-like passion to indulge into new imaginations and new experiences.

Happy writing and reading everyone.

    i agree because we live in a time where everything is far to serious! we no longer focus on what makes us feel better or things which make us happy. we worry far to much about what others think of us and how we are perceived. it is time to step back and realise the world is what we make of it, live as a fun person 🙂

      Beautifully said. Imagination is really important for our race, so many people don’t realize that, but if they get to dive in once in a while they’ll notice how good it will effect their lives.

    My 20yr old son wanted to be an actor.As a young boy he loved dressing up and play acting.He would watch movies and recite them over and over! *laughing*
    He did Drama as aTEE subject.
    He tried out for Nida:Performing arts school.(Sydney)
    They only take 25 kids a year from all over Australia.As the day progresses they slowly eliminate those they don’t want.
    He made it to the final 6 every time.. he tried from 17 to 19, then gave up his dream! ..He gave up modelling as well..he’s 6ft3.. (my giant) Lol xx

      Charlie Chaplin entered the Charlie Chaplin look-alike contest and he came in 3rd.
      Being at the top but not winning doesn’t necessary means he’s not that good. I think he should try more if he really wants to be there and never give up. I started my publishing journey 4 years ago, I’m published now and I’m still on that path. Besides, people can be more than one thing, I’m in my last term in Dentistry, having a double life help with my writing through the experiences I encounter, it will be the same if not more with the acting career.

      Best wishes for both of you. 🙂

        How cool!..a dentist!
        But isn’t writing much more fun than smelly breaths? *laughing*
        I’ve always supported his decision..I suppose it was my husband really who told him he had to find a real job! *boo*

        He kind of traveled for 1 year trying to work out where to go next!
        *laughing again* He didn’t work it out! xxxxxxx

        Writing is so much fun of course, it keeps me sane 🙂
        Fathers tend to aim their kids to a sturdy life. I hope your son would do both since we live in a time with more chances.
        Traveling, hmm… How I envy him. : )

    I was an alien from Azores from beyond the Horsehead Nebula. 😀
