Analysis: Book 12 in the Metatron’s Army series is available for pre-order.
While I’m excited that Adjudication, the final installment of the series has been turned over to the beta reader, I’m also bittersweet and a bit anxious as the series ends.
I have new material in the works but my mindset has been so focused on this project that was 35 plus years in the development that I’m having to gauge the best way to move on to the next projects.
Ghost Games, Metatron’s Universe, and Dragon Core works.
It’s been a bit like going up and down a variety of staircases, often simultaneously.
Like in an Escher Work.
In spite of the apt visual metaphor, I decided it’s really more like a circle; a circle of creation.
Because the circle is creation and creation doesn’t end.
One project winds down while the next spins up. Thus, the circle remains complete.
Creation as industry is Unique. I once belonged to an organization of executives and former executives who’d come from a variety of industries. During one of our meetings, we went through an exercise in which we were to envision where we saw ourselves in five, ten, twenty-five years, and beyond.
It was a goal oriented exercise.
To my amusement and surprise, I was the only one who could go out beyond ten years.
I explained I planned to continue writing and – creating.
Soon after, I was contacted privately by the facilitator who explained he’d never heard anyone talk about contributing and “working” into their twilight years the way I did.
He was used to people talking about where they would spend their retirement years and what they would be doing.
It wasn’t work and it wasn’t creating.
I’ve heard that if you love what you do, it isn’t work. I think that is a misnomer because every artist I know, though they love what they do, works incredibly hard.
What’s unique about creation is the nature of it. You create. If you have a drive to create, that drive is not dependent on earning a living though you sure as hell try to marry one to the other. Still, if you have a need to create, money – or lack of – won’t stop it.
Creation is a circle that never ends. There’s only a segue of continuity, the constant expression of life in one form or another.
Note: I’ve known many a scientist and researcher who has worked up until the end. That, too, is creation.
