When I look back at my career as a writer / creative person, the one thing that emerges from within all the chaos is that I have always told stories. But also, that I haven’t ever had much of an idea regarding what it was that I was doing. I have chosen work not on the basis of career path but because they were fun and interesting.
Now that I have spent close to two decades doing these things, it seems like time well spent. Because I have occasionally dabbled in work that requires formal clothes and regular hours, I know that I haven’t not missed much. In fact, the amount I have learned fending for myself in what might be described roughly as the story market is priceless compared to what many people get from their jobs.
Since I am making videos about the creative life on my YouTube channel, I figured I will take a look back at some of the creative projects I have undertaken during my career.
And also, before I end this email, Darshan is still available for download at my Instamojo store. It’s a science fiction story set in an India of the year 2050 and features techno-virtual gods, a secretive governing Sangh, and a Drohi who has hacked his way into the Central Temple.
