How I became a writer. Part 6
All that said, I never set out to be a writer. I dabbled in writing a book many years ago. The book was more about life about people from Asia, in this case, Indonesia wanting to move to Canada or North America.
The book was not very long. Whatever I had written was stolen by my ex-wife when she took off with my laptop. That was then and this is now.
I had a script written for a book titled Organ House. Now in the process, I lose the script somewhere. I most likely saved it wrong or deleted it, but the book remained. This was my first book and admittedly it was a rather strange 3 chapter book. It is more of a movie script-style beginning, middle and end type of things that later I broke up to five chapters I believe.
Not the norm but then who cares. It is what it is, it was my first shot at writing a real novel. It is also the shortest novel I have. This was due to the fact that I didn’t write the book on the fly. It was all done from the beginning, middle and end in my head. I was impatient and just wanted to get it done and out of the way.
This was a sprint and not a marathon and it showed. Everyone must start somewhere. This was my somewhere and I have never looked back.
Organ House was one of many and when the lockdown happened this was my escape.
At the beginning of the three novels, I mention the fact that these books were written during the lockdown. The lockdown itself and working from home gave me an opportunity to focus on writing.
The interesting thing is that the writing began much farther back in time, back in 1998/1999 December/January in Bali.
