19th January 2018. I’ve been stuck, stuck in a weird thinking hole that left me a tiny bit useless. Only a long walk yesterday got me out of the fog, back to my desk and back to the writing. Maybe the break was good because I’ve solved a couple of problems and created a couple of new things that The Passing really needed. I’m really excited about them.

Eureka moments while wandering around the Perlacher Forest in the middle of a storm are what creative walks are all about I suppose.

Thinking is underated.
We keep seeing celebrations of startup CEO’s who work 100 hours a week to admirably construct perfect companies, full of hard working passionate folk that hustle to make things that nobody wants or are the same as everyone else.

Extract from the novel
He had felt the effects of Brandsulin almost immediately. His consciousness was flooded by a stream of ideas, messages, songs and blip-clips for a whole range of things and people that he was suddenly thirsty for. He found that he could hold, process and sort through hundreds of these tiny brand messages simultaneously and soon his network was engulfed by high-level glory influencers, all sensing something new, something remarkable.

This was the incoming - Network IN.
Then the Flucermol kicked in: Michael threw his head back, gasping for air, his whole being realising that this was what he had always meant to do. This was the outgoing: projecting his brand, selling his wares, a bright, new, glorious light shining within the Coalition Network, all bursting with an exquisite and irresistible story.

He was now Network OUT.
