I have been away for too long, 8 days without blogging can be ages for me. Having an outlet, a channel for your river of creativity to flow in is essential for our own mental health. Blogging is the place where you pour your heart out.
In the past days I have been busy in so many ways, my physical world and my mental world have been per-occupied with so many thing the dam I call my skull could burst,but not in an all bad way, mostly in a good way, some in a great manner.
I got out from my castaway island, I have been stranded since my internet got sick, now healthy as an ox I can mention the great news and the important things that have happened to me in the last days, something beautiful.
I’ll be away for a while, I need to visit my friend in the hospital (one of the things that had me occupied lately). I’ll be back for more, hopefully today.
Have a great day everyone.

Well, it’s finally on track now.
My fiction thriller got the good acknowledgment that I was seeking by releasing the E-Book edition first. As we know, when you enter a bookstore what attracts you to the book is the reviews written on them, having the word of mouth can really help the reader to get some idea about that book from someone other than the author.
Psychs have received so far only positive reviews from Kirkus, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Authors, Bloggers and goodreads.com. So now comes the second step for the Psych series, the new paperback edition which is now marked with reviews.
2012 was a very productive year for my thriller, and now I’m starting 2013 with a bang.
Soon, perhaps later today, I will be able to share the new soft cover for Psychs.
So, until then, you can visit my website and learn more about my thriller, you can also get linked from there so you can get to read the full reviews.

Your mind is a universe… you can always spot a star in it…
You’ll never know what might come out from your head… so go ahead and try to find out…
~ A. H. Amin
I think this is kind of refreshing and I believe everyone should do that once in a while.
Today I went to the grocery… Yes, we writers need food too… It was early and the streets were empty, so I did something like what’s in the picture; I imagined something abnormal in a normal place. It is a good exercise for the brain, you get to give your creative part lying in there a start up.
Try it out, even if you are inside your house. It will revive the kid inside you. That kid is really important for us, it is a part inside you that will never gets old and will always keep you entertained.
Having a kid’s imagination with an adult’s means of expressing those imaginations is what differentiate a true creative artist from an artist. Art has many ways to reveal itself, through writing, through music, through… well, you can fill in if you want to, but art will always start from a picture from your head, imagined to be seen by your eyes, imagined to be heard through your ears, tasted through your lips… imagined.
I will look through the window after this post, to see through my inner kid’s eyes my words disturbing the clouds as it leaves to you.

I saw this painting today and I immediately felt the connection. It shows exactly how my thoughts, if not everyone’s, are created.
I always say best ideas are originated from the subconscious, since our consciousness is too busy with our reality. The trick is finding a way to reel it in. The guy fishing represents the subconscious, and the fishing pole is what anyone would use to reel the catch, the bait can be different, different baits, different ideas.
To get to the subconscious one must be isolated from the reality, my ways… my favorite baits are music and jogging, they are not the only ones, but they are more available to me, and they really help me escape my surroundings.
The fishing is on hold for me until the end of this month, my graduation is only weeks away from me, and I am in the process of releasing the paperback copy of Psychs. So until then, my subconscious would have to do everything for me, and once I have the time, I’ll try to summon him.
How would you do it?
