|Previous Pre-Covers to my book.|
Every so often I feel I should do an updated "preface" as to what my site and book are about. Sometimes it's easy to forget that someone might be new and not have a clue what you are talking about or referring to. It's like watching a tv show with someone that you have never seen before and they start talking about it like you should know what they are saying.
It's like - wait wait wait - pause the show and catch me up.
How did he become vice president? (House of Cards)
Why does Brandy not trust Lisa anymore? (Beverly Housewives)
Are these people actually friends or enemies? (All housewives)
Is that their sister or their ex girl-friend? (Game of thrones)
I am confused! I don't even know these people's names! Which one is which? Who is that again?
So the really short version is:
"Discovering Da Vinci's Daughter" is a non-fiction semi- autobiographical narrative about the author discovering the enigmatic identity of the Mona Lisa and previously unattributed artistic innovations by Leonardo da Vinci.
Or in other words I lost my mind and basically 'lost everything' when I started to try and write a book about Leonardo da Vinci. Fast Forward 7ish years and after many re-starts, I have mostly gotten everything back together again. "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger" eh? That may be true but I documented and wrote about all of the attempted self mutilations (and humiliations.) In my book they will be called "interjections" which is my story that's interwoven between the chapters.
This blog is what I've been using to post about writing it along the way. My web site: itsjustlife.com was my own personal project before all this started and it has turned into discoveringdavinci.com
"More to go? Isn’t everything to discover about him already discovered? How could there be something ‘new’ from someone who’s been dead for 500 years?"– Good question!
For me to answer that requires a preface of information. It’s like watching a tv – series and trying to start on season 2 without seeing the first season. You wouldn’t be able to understand what is going on, what the character's motives are, who they are, their back story, or why certain things are more important to the story than others.
