How I became a writer. Part 11

Part 11

As I began to write, I didn’t think of myself as a writer or an author whatsoever. I was writing stuff… I was writing and writing and to be honest I lost myself in the stories I was creating. 

The weekends became a blur and before I knew it, it was Monday and back to work. 

Time flew by and the pages filled with words… 

This was not easy, I would spend all day at my desk. Every waking minute spent not writing was a waste. I wanted to take breaks but my mind would not let me. 

From 8 am to 3 and sometimes 4 pm, I would be writing and pounding away at the keyboard of my laptop. The weekends were a sprint within the marathon of writing my books. The stories and the dialogue came quite easily. Not easy but easier than I thought it would when I first sat down to write. 

“Scars” was my first book after Organ house. This book was a series or made for TV movie in my head. 

I took all the things that were happening around me in a teenager’s life and piled them into this book. 

I had plenty of experience with kids. Being a single dad for 10 years will do that to you. Putting myself inside my kid’s shoes and thinking how they may react to things was fun. 

One boy, one girl to raise gave me plenty of experience to relate to the made-up characters. I had some crazy chapter names like “Saved by ice cream.” “Here comes the slut” and so on. I was having so much fun with the book and began to love the process. 

My way of writing feels like I am a storyteller. As if I could sit with you and tell you this story. I am still unsure if I would consider myself an author. I still feel I am telling a story and involving these characters I came up with. All the while telling to about their lives and the drama I am spinning around them.    

But this was not all fun and games…

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
