Who is Afraid of the Big Bad Double Dragon?
Tuesday, May 21, 2002  2:18:00 AM

by Jozef Imrich

End of e-publishing history? End of the e-book? What we really need an end to, is fear of our permanently risky, uncertain, but exciting future.

If you’re going to create, create a lot. Creativity is not like playing the slot machines, where failure to win means you go home broke. With creativity, if you don’t win, you’re usually no worse off than if you hadn’t played
-Scott Adams

We hear often of the sweeping developments that take place across the world. Cold Wars, Hot Wars, economic booms and busts, the rapacious scramble for resources: we hear the warnings of countries, the shouts of other countries in greedy triumph. We rarely see the ways in which these changes impact mere individuals.

My small personal voice dreamed and dreamed about telling a story. All dreamers are, however, aware of Gumperson law of corollary. Gumperson put my dreams to tell my story together in his now famous law which runs like this: "The probability of something happening is in inverse proportion to its desirability."

Storytellers cannot live exclusively in an unreal world born of the rejection letters, because when we cease to hope and dream and imagine wonderful things to come, our very souls and spirits wither and die. Bookies have a saying, “There are three horses who have never come in win, place, or even show. Their names are Coulda, Woulda, and Shoulda.” Bookies live—and sometimes die—by the accuracy or inaccuracy of their predictions. The same can said of storytellers.

Anyone involved in the bookselling race is aware that getting published without rejections is like sex without sin or the taste of real freedom without dizziness.

It is said that telling writers how to get published is the same as trying to explain how to ride a bike. Think you can tell a child how to ride a bike? "It is rather easy," I was once told. The same thing I recently told my daughter Gabriella.


Hearty e-places such as the Double Dragon Publishing (DDP) and The ABCTales are in a process of teaching me how to ride that bike. Above all else, they are to teach writers like me to DREAM the right DREAMS. At e-pubs and e-zines, the philosophy begins with the assumption of the power of story in human lives.

It is the creative e-pubs that seem to offer storytellers like myself the opportunity to express our small personal voices with a speed of light.

My articles seemed destined to fade from memory as just another survivor’s story. Then, one fine day in October 2001, one of my articles was recommended as the ‘Story of the Day,’ (for five days- grin), at the ABCTales. Now I have several readers knocking at my door demanding admission to the full story.

The mysterious aspect of success is that those who seek it as such never find it. It is not a destination or a goal, it is written in the ink of imagination. It is only found as a byproduct of our ability to dream. Many people spend an unhappy life searching desperately for that which is always within their reach, never realising that it is a treasure not to be found from without, but from within. A storyteller is a storyteller is a storyteller whether they are published or never published. Storytellers touch people, inspire listeners, move them to action, change their mind-sets, and open their eyes to imagination and dreams.
