Finito!

 

ninja_avatarMy book is finito, complete, done, a wrap… now I wait for publishing! What a nightmare! I had no idea what I was getting myself into!

My word in all of this is NINTAI, patience in Japanese!

For now, you can keep up with me via Twitter. I have already begun writing Book II!

the beauty of writing…

I’m wrapping up the end of my book! I’m very excited and I hope you will all enjoy it half as much as I enjoyed the journey it took me through. What a wonderful and horrible process writing is: God burdens you with a story and you get to labor out the details…much like giving birth!

Oscar Hammerstein II said, “I know the world is filled with troubles and many injustices. But reality is as beautiful as it is ugly. I think it is just as important to sing about beautiful mornings as it is to talk about slums. I just couldn’t write anything without hope in it.”  

The goal of my writing is to make people talk about the beauty in mornings and sing about slums. If I can do that, then all this hard work will not be in vain and I will feel as if I contributed a small yet significant part in the repairing of the fabric of shalom in this world or in others words, justice!

Love & hugs – ck

my three muses…

mythreemusesThey sit at my desk, atop my printer: Ichigo, Mustang and Edward, “my three muses” – bringing me inspiration, courage and a bit of luck!

where did my muse go?

Going through a bit of writer’s block – ugggh! I haven’t really experienced this before and I’m so close to the end of my book! It feels like false labor!!! I’ve been bombarded with so much lately that I just don’t know how to sort out my thoughts to make them work to my advantage. And I’ve tried everything – music, staying up late at night when everyone else sleeps, prayer, reading, connecting with nature, etc…the list goes on and on but my writing has ceased!

I think I’ll hang out at the ocean this weekend and meditate on the power and majesty of the waves as God’s tender yet treacherous caress of a fallen world. Love you all – cck

sketching the dream…

What started out as just a random sketch in a small doodling notebook I was messin’ with, soon developed into an idea for a manga. Then it evolved into what I thought would become my first graphic novel. Imagine my surprise when it took a serious and philosophical journey of its own and morphed itself into the novel I am currently writing – incidentally, not entitled LAZY BONZ. I plan to do a graphic novel with that title following the book.

I’ve been working solid on my book (no, I will not be revealing the title) now for four months and I’m nearly complete. It is an arduous task; but somehow delightful as well. Actually, it is much more than just a delight…I’m in love with it…that’s it…writing this book is much like falling in love! It has a mysterious and seductive life of its own. Its like a symphony begging to be written after you’ve been hearing its familiar beauty in your head over and over again. Somehow the characters are telling the story to me and I am in love with all of them!
