“Whatever happened to me in my life, happened to me as a writer of plays. I’d fall in love, or fall in lust. And at the height of my passion, I would think, ‘So this is how it feels,’ and I would tie it up in pretty words. I watched my life as if it were happening to someone else. My son died. And I was hurt, but I watched my hurt, and even relished it, a little, for now I could write a real death, a true loss. My heart was broken by my dark lady, and I wept, in my room, alone; but while I wept, somewhere inside I smiled. For I knew I could take my broken heart and place it on the stage of The Globe, and make the pit cry tears of their own.”
William Shakespeare in “The Sandman” by Neil Gaiman
It’s been a while since I gave an update on the book I (re-)wrote. The second edition of “Organizing Creativity” has now been downloaded well over 1000 times (1140 times to be exact, the last 4 were done by me ;-)).
This is a very conservative number — given that Google Analytics does not track everything.
I also received a very positive and nicely (and well) written recommendation.
Someone once said that feedback is the life-blood of an author — and I agree. If you can imagine a massage for the soul, these recommendations are very much like that … only better. It’s good when people find it helpful what you have created — and give you feedback on how to improve your current and future work. Hmm, but in all honesty, that I have written four postings within the last two to three hours has more to do with the fact that I am motivated, negatively motivated, than with the feedback I have received (sorry). Life happens and sometimes doing something you love can distract you from other things that you … feel ambiguous about.
But anyway … I would like to take this moment to thank all the people who have downloaded my book, commented on my postings or wrote about my blog.
Thank you very much. 🙂 🙂 🙂
