Can you help?
I have been listening to…
Writing about things and purging things to help others?
Actually I have been listening to Vision Quest Radio and the inspirational Mr Twenty Twenty.
I have picked up a few signals from Mr Twenty, who is a fellow visionary and all round fascinating sort of fella.
Now I am waiting for a channel of thought to develop.
I am surrounded by blocked energy and because I am not sure it is my problem, I am not doing anything about it.
For a moment I had my eyes closed.
I had a moment of synesthesia. The computer made a weird click and a flash of white light, a bit like a camera flash when your eyes are closed, entered my consciousness in response to the sound.
This means I am tired. It means I have had way too much stimulus recently and I am over sensitive.
It probably means I will become more obsessive about my current special interests, which are TWITTER and MARKETING.
I am tired and I am trying to write.
I am jammed.
Jammed with the idea I have to promote a book.
Okay I have written a book and I want people to read it.
It’s not like a record, it’s not over in four minutes. This is something of substance.
Cottage industries are great, only doing everything yourself means that you get to do the stuff you don’t want to do yourself.
You get to do the stuff you are not good at.
For me it is marketing.
Imagine a guy with Aspergers writing copy that will connect with people.
I tried enlisting various people’s help and they don’t get me, think I am some pushy weird nutter or something because I don’t know where the boundaries are and over step them.
Spiritual people saying “stop tweeting me it is annoying”.
I am the guy who thinks everyone else’s advertising copy is bull shit.
I can SEE right through it.
Won’t work on me – I don’t care what you say…
I was GIVEN a free gym membership today worth £750.
Great marketing ploy right?
Who knows. I already have gym membership. I may go along to see if there is a catch.
Maybe they just know once they got me I’ll be there for year two? I know I can’t use that ploy myself.
I want to go back to sitting and thinking.
I want to go back to piecing bits of the Universe together.
I want someone who is great at marketing to come and hold my hand and to sell my book.
If this sounds whingy – then it’s interesting – I have clearly been spending the last two weeks doing something I am not designed to do.
I am not the zappy ad guy in a fake moleskin jacket with a rented mansion and a hire car.
I can’t do that.
What I can do is INSIGHT.
I can crawl INSIDE your head and MAKE YOU THINK.
My friend thinks I have the answers to the Universe.
I think I just know which questions to ask.
So here is a question.
I am a genius, are you?
I need a marketing guy who has a knack for it, in the same way I have a knack for thinking.
I need you to come into my world and help, before I go completely mad.
That way I can start the next book.
See you on the other side of the looking glass,
