A journey of self-discovery

Do you ever get the feeling that life itself is really a journey of self-discovery? Sorry if that seems a little 'new age' but I'm feeling a little philosophical after my last section of writing. As I haven't been able to post here for several days due to computer glitches, I'm afraid that's how I'm feeling at the present time given the points of frustration I have experienced as of late, as well as a slight sense of guilt. Hence, my apology for not having written anything on the blog since Saturday.

Nevertheless, I have still managed to write a particularly mesmerising section of the book over the past few days, which does draw on my own experiences of visualisations, meditation and hypnosis. You may recall that my main character suffered from PTSD. At this point, he gets some help with overcoming it. For him, it is a very pleasant journey of self-discovery. For me, it's a starting point for beginning one of the central themes which lies at the heart of this story. What is this theme? Well, I'm a little loathe to give too much away at this point. After all, what would be the point in you reading the book if I've already revealed the plot to you beforehand? Now that would definitely be somewhat unfair and ruinous on my part!

Despite this, I do feel that the time is nearing for the central character to begin realising his true purpose in the story. It will be a journey for both of us – I'm rather glad to be accompanying him and I look forward to taking you along!


About Owen Law

My pen-name is ‘Owen Law’ (real name: Nicholas Davies.) I’m a science fiction writer specialising in dystopian/apocalyptic visions of the future. I’m from Shropshire, England (on the borders with Wales) and I’m in my forties. I have a background in public services and training. I’ve been working on my first novel, Dragon Line, since 2008. I’ve also written several short stories, one of which you can find on this blog (‘Matilda Leviathan‘). I now reside on the border of Shropshire and Wales, and my interests include writing (of course!), current affairs and environmental issues.
