Tobin here. I happened upon the post Teagan made earlier and I feel the need to respond. All humans are different and unique. Each must choose what viewpoint makes the most sense and then what to do with that knowledge. When the truth of this story is realized, the public will also have to decide what to do with the responsibility inherited with the knowledge.
Teagan knows my thoughts and beliefs on this subject. I think the main difficulty she is experiencing is her desire to help others. She recently told me she has been inspired by a couple she knows to give to others. She wants to help, to give of herself. There is nothing wrong with that.
However, the best way I know of for her to help is to get the story out so that others can make an informed decision on the ideas it presents. I have every confidence she will learn the formatting process well enough to publish the next book in the series on time. After all, that is the first true glimpse of my own story. For all the issues Teagan says she has with computers, she is actually very adept at using them.
I must take my leave now to attend to my new scion and his mother. I will write again soon. Until then, I wish you all calm and gentle peace-filled nights.
Hello again. I'm back with a short description of a new issue I've recently realized I'm experiencing. I find that there are so many things mentioned in my story that I want to talk about with people, but I can't because only two of the seven books have been released.
How do I deal with this issue?
Granted I ought to simply be happy that I actually have a whole story waiting to be released. But I want to talk about it because I think it would help many people with some of the things affecting society today. The terrorist attacks, the natural disasters hitting one right after the other, etc. I see the struggles people are going through and I know my story will have a profound effect on society and that it can help people understand and deal with so many things.
Then again, there will be many who will either see the story as pure fantasy or who will rail against its message, who will claim the story is an attempt to kill God and all religion. I cannot dictate anyone's viewpoint. People will simply have to make up their own minds as to what they believe the story's message is. They'll also have to live with that decision.
Well, I guess I'm just gonna have to figure out how to deal with this thing on my own. Thanks for being my shoulder to lean on whilst I struggle with this issue. I appreciate it.
By the way, I'm still working on the formatting of the eBook version of book two. Hopefully I'll have that done by tomorrow night.
Thanks again. Either Tobin or I will write again soon.
Teagan here. I wanted to say that I agree with everything Tobin said in his post below. But I'd like to add that we are thinking of all the victims and their families and loved ones who are suffering from this tragedy.
I have never experienced anything even remotely similar, but my imagination has conjured up enough to make me feel heartbroken for anyone involved in this. From the deepest parts of my heart, I wish you peace. It's little consolation, if any, but I wish it all the same.
Tobin here. This will be a brief statement on recent happenings in the United States. I have seen and heard many things over the past two days that might lead one to believe mankind has lost its sense of humanity. The very act of violence that resulted in the deaths of so many might have been enough to jade some. But there is another side to this that should be considered. Indeed, it needs to be emphasized anytime this subject arises. The heroism shown by so many during the crisis must be put in the spotlight.
