Hello, world! Welcome again to my blog!
I was thinking the other day about how people insult and look down on the average person when they break out in something new. Then, later down the road, some celebrity does the exact same thing and everybody loves them for it!
So here’s my advice to all of you mens and womens and childs… If you want to act or sing or write or whatever, and you have a unique way of going about it, my advice would be to follow your heart.
Do what feels right to you. Don’t let anyone tell you what you should be doing or how you should be doing it. Just don’t.
The world has become the world we know because of unique people just like you and me. I am sure if you read up on how some of those people (people like Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and many others) got their start you will find they were mocked in the beginning.
They were told they would never make it. They were ridiculed and laughed at, but instead of bowing down in the face of adversity, they kept pushing until they succeeded.
That’s what I am telling you, my friend. Not everyone makes it to the top, of course. And even some of those who do are short lived. But who is to say you won’t be the next big thing? Either way, it’s worth shooting for the stars!
Let’s take me, for instance…
My upcoming book, Komplex Sinplicities, is a maelstrom of poetry, suspense, comedy, a bit of horror, and who knows what else. It’s not published as of this very moment in time, but to SOME those I have talked about to about it have kind of sneered at the idea.
Here’s why: When a person picks up a book they expect to see one sort of genre. They are expecting a certain feel from cover to cover, and Komplex Sinplicities kind of goes against the grain of all that.
But I did it for good reason. Things in the world are continuing to evolve and transition from one thing to the next. That’s putting people out of their comfort zones, but it’s the way the world seems to be working now days.
I don’t know if anyone has ever done a book quite like mine, but seeing the changes in the book market as they are, I think there should be a pioneer…a leader in the industry…to begin a new era in how we look at books.
Like I said, I may not be the first, but I’m definitely going to get some nay sayers commenting about it. And you know what? That’s fine with me. But if I don’t start this, for a lack of a much better word, revolution then some one else will.
And the best part? My next book, although very different from Komplex Sinplicities, will be just as chaotic. What can I say? I don’t do “normal” if I can help it. I find it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
So keep your nose to grind stone. Grow ya a tough skin, and do what you want to do. That’s what I have to say about it.
Do you have something peculiar and different from the norm? Leave a comment! Tell us how you plan on revolutionizing the world?
