There are only three sports: bullfighting, mountain climbing and motor racing; all the rest are merely games." - Ernest Hemingway from "Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly." Franz Kafka "The Zone is where you find your best performance and everything flows. I believe you have to push the limit of an activity to get this kind of experience." from "When you're writing there are times when you feel it's a bit of a struggle. However, at other times you're in what is called 'the zone' and writing just feels effortless. This happens when finding the right words is no longer a struggle; but this heightened state, as with most crafts usually comes with practise. Then words simply flow into your head faster than you can write them down (or can press the keyboard). But you have to really push your writing limits to get this kind of experience. " Then later you look what you've written and think: "Bloody hell. That's good. Did I really write that seemingly without much effort? Wonder where all that came from (a cerebral thing or "outer space"!" - A "nony-moose" writer To the sounds of click on http: // "The greatest mountain we need to climb lies in our own minds." It's not the highest mountain that we conquer, but ourselves, our own mentality. Overcoming perceived limits to reach (attain) the pinnacle of our own minds." - craig (as inspired by the words of Sir Edmund Hillary, conquerer of Mount Everest (1919-2008) "The Zone is where you find your best performance and everything flows. I believe you have to push the limit of an activity to get this kind of experience. You have to practise to find the Zone. If sportsmen repeat this often and practise going step by step into a spiritual state... a lot of sportsmen have worked hard on their mind and many have worked on a spiritual path." "In his finest moments Ayrton Senna found tiny glimpses of a Heaven on Earth to which we can ALL aspire, with or without a pit-pass, as we shall see..." - Clyde Brolin writing in in his fascinating book 'Overdrive: Formula One in the Zone.' ( web site: ) "The untapped potential in every human being is limitless: we are perfectly capable of producing, all by ourselves, true magic." - more powerful (and great) writing from Clyde Brolin in his excellent book 'Overdrive: Formula One in the Zone' (web site ) "I want to write the way Gilles Villeneuve drove and power-slid his blood-red Formula One Ferraria with wild enthusiasm and a sense of abandonment, combined with the artists craft of a Stirling Moss, a Jim Clark, and especially that of the great Ayrton Senna, living on the razor-blade edge of life." "Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of life one that ANYONE can run and win." c 11/11/11 from "Together, one mind, one person at a time, let's see how many people we can impact, empower, uplift and encourage and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials." To the sound of Abba "I have a dream" https: // Dr Martin Luther King http: // and http: // check out http: // Ayrton Senna in Donington 1993 - The most spectacular lap in Formula1 ever! * * Now let's start writing this e-book or perhaps an interactive ebook-video ("e-bidio/ebutube" )* and see where the journey takes us.

About Craig G Lock

SOME OF CRAIG'S THOUGHTS ON THE WRITING JOURNEY: About twenty-five years ago, through a strange set of circumstances and finding himself in a small town near the bottom of the world ....and with nothing else to do, Craig started writing. About 150 books later, this "techno-dummy/bunny" started learning more about the publishing process from his "technoggeek" friend, Bill. He loves sharing "info" on the writing and publishing journey (as well as life experiences) with others "out there.."..and that is his motivation in publishing this book. "We share what we know, so that we all may grow." . "I really value words and the power of them to communicate effectively; so in my various stories try to illustrate and then let readers draw their own conclusions about a certain scenario, as well as the characters searching for their own values in an increasingly complex social and political landscape. However, I do feel an obligation to give a complete picture of the situation, which is often not a clear-cut 'black or white' issue (as in South Africa). I never want to proscribe how people should think and feel my only duty as a writer is to be totally honest." - craig "Life is about finding, then following the dream and one's dream/vision comes to reality through believing in yourself, making the commitment and then creating it." All our dreams can come true...if we have the desire (burning), courage, passion, persistence and patience* to pursue them...long enough." -c * the "three pees" from PPS "Together, one mind, one life at a time, let's see how many people we can impact, encourage, empower, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials."show more
