With Marvelous Things, I was really interested in diving into the head spinning, mind-numbing, self-questioning haze that one can fall into with extreme, extended isolation, as well as the search for meaning and/or identity that could occur within those circumstances.
I would have to agree, we all seem to have an inherent need to shut it all out, and down. If only to dissect every little thing that affects us.
In addition to all of that, I really love bio-synthetic future tech and speculating on various forms it could take. I have always been fascinated by that.
So you've always been a wee bit of a Science Fiction fan or was your interest more about practical application?
And I should add that ever since I was a small child, the blending of human with machine has been an ongoing fixation/morbid curiosity. I perhaps think a bit too much about the different ways flesh and metal could be combined for a variety of uses.
There's nothing wrong with curiosity, morbid or otherwise... It keeps us interesting.
Wow, sounds like readers will be in for a hell of a ride...
When you're not writing I understand you split your time up between California and Istanbul Turkey. How did that kind of traveling happen for you? Has it influenced your work at all?
WOW... I wish I could focus enough to write that many hours some weeks, let alone a day! I applaud your dedication. I know what you mean about the same pot! And you've got yourself a very large pot indeed!! Seeing as you don't just write books.
You've written screen plays, music, and have even produced some video from what my research tells me. Going so far as having written what became NBC's The New Normal. What was that experience like for you?
I may have mis-read, but yeah I'd check it out. LMAO! Still it had to be a great experience, none the less.
Hey look at it this way, after reading your work and looking you up I was willing to believe you capable of having your hand in that honey pot. Which says one of two things.
I'm going with the first one, personally.
It's a long road, but as I understand worth it in the long run. I'm not making any money yet, but I'm doing what I love, and eventually someone else is gonna come along and love it too. And the cash will fly. We just have to keep that positive outlook and keep breaking our assess until that spark burns.
I understand that compulsion. That need to write. I've never been one to run short of words. My first solo novel was going to be 130K, until I turned it into a trilogy, and even then total it's over 300k. But I don't kill any idea, like you said you filter them and file them away.
LOL. Hoorah! As my bro it the army would say!
Thank you so much for joining me today/night. I'm sure that you'd like to have dinner at some point while it's still hot. lol I look forward to seeing what else you have to show us in the next few months. It's been a pleasure.
Absolutely!! And thank you very much as well! Have a great Night!.
Well That's al we have for this day, do check out David's other works as they all should prove to be quite the "Marvelous Things!
