Obsession… what does she do? And how far she will take you?

She is a woman to me, for it is the only way I can relate to how I am… I am obsessed with my ideas. I dream about them, but not too much because she won’t let me sleep. I feel happy when I describe her, I feel off when life gets in the way. She has never let me be, she is always with me. I always feel the need to write, but I am chained by my obligations, while all I really want is to share her story with the world.

We have those moments where we feel like we are fulfilling our destiny, even by doing a simple task… the sense of euphoria that surges within, god’s way to tell us that he is pleased with what we do. I sit in a lecture hall, and I get the feeling like someone is whispering into my ear, she reminds me that she’s here. She shines a light on a new idea, and I find my self treading on the thin line between the real and the unreal, where only my subconscious is awake, and my conscious is not aware of my reality.

How far will she go? Only I can tell by following her to the end…

Your ideas are your purpose, obsession is your guilt from being away from your purpose… make time for your ideas, or she will stop talking to you… once you lose her, you lose your purpose.

Be creative… be happy… be with purpose.

An author’s great moment

One thing an author likes to see is his/her impression on their readers, we are a cup which we like to fill with different kinds of compliments, amazement, appraisment, appreciacion… Et cetera. But I hit the holy grail on that one last week.

I took a week-off to see my loved ones back home, which was a long list. One of the favored ones were my brother’s family. His teenage kid came to me with a stack of papers, filled with words of his own, and he told me that he wants me to tell him what I think… I knew all along that he is a fan of my fiction thriller novel, and that he had enjoyed reading all the 423 pages in a couple of weeks, during his exams period (which in a way I feel guilty about). But to inspire him to unleash his own imagination was the best reward I received for writing my novel, giving the next generation the spark to go fill their own cup. I hope with all my heart he will be a great writer, better than his own uncle… God bless you Kiddo.

 

Another step for my book

 

This is kind of a big one for me, as I’m sure it is a good indication for all authors. This bookstore ordered a large quantity of my book, and here it is.

My book is growing, its not a newborn anymore. Now, my book started to walk on its own.

God bless (That Al Salasil bookstore) and their new branch in Avenues mall. I only hope this would be a good omen for what is to come for my novel.

I hope my novel would find its way to your shelves, now I’m more confident that it will.

The weight we carry pushes us forward

‘We take our lives one step at a time, laying the pavement before each step’

This figure of speech, of how life goes, is overwhelmingly close to describe our days, as it represent how it can be a labor to live a normal life… let alone to try and accomplish in it.

We ask every day how can we proceed when we carry our own obligations; our families, our educations, our work…. our dreams. The more we introduce, the more hindrance we think we produced to our ongoing lives that we come to think that it came into a halt.

Our complicated lives makes it hard to pin point our true answer, because it is simple… We use our baggage.

I can only use my self as an example, so I hope people can relate.

Once a dropout of college, ex-engaged, who had never read a novel in his entire life. I had a lot of baggage that only keeps adding up. It is in the darkest hours that the light can be more prominent. I added to my baggage education once again, and the thought of writing came after I shared a couple of my ideas. My weight helped me in my ideas, using a clay of my own life in my novels proved to be useful, studying took time and energy, which I applied eventually on my book, I placed some of my medical knowledge I obtained and asked for from my professors. And the fact that I am in a university gave me access to a lot of information, where I could ask about mass communication, business, medicine, pharmacy… and the list goes on. Every time something is added to me, I try to see the good side, and how can it inspire me for my dreams.

So here I am… a published author, still walking when I really want to do is run. But I have to take it one step at a time… with my novels, my studies, and with my new love, who shares my dreams and hopes for our future.

 

Allow what you call weight the chance to inspire… let them speak to you, help you, and carry you onward, never give yourself the chance to stop. If you are a dreamer, then be sure everything that happens is happening for you.

 

What my book cover reveals…

 

This is my book cover… by artist Gida Sameh. She was the one I picked after I talked to her about my book, and after she was able to use her very unique imagination to come up with the idea for the cover.

It represents the transitional phases of my character… Here’s what The cover is trying to say:-

The men in the bottom, middle, and upper left are the same person. The first in the bottom is the time where the truth behind his tragic event of his birth was revealed… it brought him inside an asylum for a while where he, after a brief time with his doctor, learned to love psychiatry.

The second represents one job that he has, he became a psychiatrist, and the knowledge he obtained from that field came in handy with the other job… the one he is aiming a bit higher for.

The third representation on the upper left will be the soldier of fortune he wants to be… for those who read the synopsis in my older posts or my blog, this represent his time in this first book of the series, where he is taking parts in events to gain experience in that field.

That leaves us with the woman in the bottom left… well… I hope one day you will all find out who she is.

Best regards to all avid readers and thriller seekers.

To create is to have a purpose

That’s how simple it is… everyone is trying to find his/her purpose in life, thinking that they will be happy if they did. Trust me when I tell you this, they are absolutely right. To have a purpose, is like having an assurance that there is a divine plan for you, and it gives your heart the calmness by knowing that you are not life’s byproduct.

Everyone have their own purpose. Learning, working, finding love or getting married… they are necessities, like breathing, and they define our race, nothing more. But a purpose, is something else, its using the very bit of the divine soul that created us all. A purpose is to create, to use that little fragment inside you. Give it shape, give it a sound, let that soul talk, it is the manifestation of your purpose. It wants to write, it wants to draw, it wants to film, it wants to sing… it may wants to do everything, unleash it, let that fragment that created you guide you, it will make you a better person.

I gave shape to my fragment, and thus came a book. I wrote a fiction thriller, and found my self becoming better in my other aspects of life. So please, try to create something in this world, be with purpose, be happy. Let your words enlighten every reader, give them the chill, make them feel romantic, or force them to sit on the edge. Let your drawings capture our hearts, force us to comment, and makes us imagine the story behind its colors and shapes. Let your songs spread joy, sadness, love, or even laughter.

All the best for everyone, may you all give shape to your purpose, and eventually, to your selves.

What made my new thriller

Every thing in the universe exists because there are certain elements allowing them to fill the space. So what gave shape to my novel… ‘Psychs’?

Here are the elements of my fiction thriller, and I hope through that, you will get to know and love the soul of my book.
