More oft, than not, it’s uttered by someone who’s looking for something that is “inside the box”. Every time I hear the phrase, I restrain my derision.
That’s why I humbly suggest that instead of thinking out of the box, you cut that damn box up instead.
Make something out of it only you could imagine. After seeing what you’ve made, some may never realize that you ever had a box at all.
If you need to shape it outside of the view of others until it’s done, that’s fine. That’s what I’ve quietly been up to the past few months.
2015 will bring changes and for owners of my books, art and/or music, some rewards as well, but I’m still cutting and shaping the box.
In the mean time, my newest book, The Gospel of Wolves, Episode One is now available as signed paperback versions from my website (click the image below to go there), as paperbacks from Amazon and Barnes and Noble and as ebooks from Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Kobo.
So here’s to 2015. And Change.
