RE: Hi, everyone!
Clumsysoul, thanks. I guess by 'dream life' you mean being able to read and write all the time, as a hobby and as a profession.

Well, yeah, it's lot of fun, especially since so far I've worked on projects developing books for kids. For one publisher I abridged 24 English classics. These included greats like Huckleberry Finn, Jane Eyre, Great Expectations etc. So got the opportunity to read many great novels for free :-)

For another publisher, I worked on abridging old, copyright free adventure books. Also developed some original short stories for very young kids and a couple of abridged story collections and original novels for pre-teens. Unfortunately, that publisher has decided to focus on his other business for now (forcing me back in the line of the unemployed). So all these original creations are lying idle for now.

But writing them was really a lot of fun. Just try writing something for a five year old and you'd know. It just makes you smile thinking of a kid's reactions to your words.

RE: Hi, everyone!
Oh, wow, thanks for adding the link to it, Avi.

Okay, when I started writing it, all I wanted was to write a 'beautiful love story.' Wink I had just finished reading the story 'The Gift of the Magi', which I think is one of the best love stories ever written.

Well, as I wrote the book, not one but two interlinked love stories developed in it. The main conflict in the primary story rises from the heroine's failure to understand her feelings, and the hero's resolve to ignore his. He has been rendered handicapped in an accident, so now considers himself unworthy of love. This story brings out the hopes and fears that keep on struggling in the hearts of differently-abled people, and the social prejudice they have to face.

The conflict in the second story that's woven into the book rises from misunderstandings, treachery of a vengeful woman, and a strong difference of opinion between the hero and the heroine. While the hero hates his father, the heroine loves the elderly gentleman and would support him even at the cost of her love. That's what leads to the crisis in the story.

The title of the book is 'Dream's Sake' because both stories seek to explore one single idea. And that is: How far can a person go to fulfill the dream of someone else?

Well, read the book and find out Biggrin

RE: Hi, everyone!
congo Wow, the stories seem amazing. Deep, too! Smile I'm definitely gonna check 'em out.


And yeah, that's what I meant by leading a dream life. Biggrin Right now I'm getting a degree as a sort of fail safe, but soon as that's done I'm going to seriously start writing and stuff.

It's too bad that the publisher decided to put the project on a backburner; it sounded really interesting. I've always thought there's not enough good stuff out there for little kids (unless you count Enid Blyton's books, but seriously, they're getting dated now). Sad

Yeah, telling stories to kids is fun, isn't it? Big Grin I have a little cousin who just loves fantasy and vampires and ghosts, so I keep making up stuff to entertain her when one of us stays over.


Oh, and I forgot to add ... sucks to be unemployed. Hope the situation amends itself speedily. Wink
