INTERVIEW WITH TAK TSE PROFIT


How did you get started writing? 

A good friend told me of a play she wanted to right and asked me to collaborate on it. We were in 6th grade.

Do you have a writing routine?
Only to be prepared to take advantage of any idle time to continue my project.

Do you write every day?
Once I have started a project, yes: for the most part everyday.

What do you wish you’d done differently when you first started the publishing process?
I wish I had started the promotion process earlier than I did. But the total project lasted nearly ten years, so I couldn't realistically see an end to it soon enough to be sure when to start marketing.

What do you think is hardest aspect of writing a book?
Editing. I tend to do this in phases, and it consumes a lot of time, and you are never really sure you have gotten it exactly right.

How often do you read?
Only during the breaks between completing one section and starting the next section, I do it to clear my mind so I can start the new subject.

What is your writing style?
A great deal of preparation. Extensive research and note collection and distillation to create key ideas, then honing those down to actual specific thoughts for inclusion. Then organizing them in to a cogent theme and putting them to a final version. Also I tend to be redundant, purposely. I write many run-on sentences and do not apologize for them.  They are complete thoughts. Also I like to create a sort of swoon or disorientation in the readers mind with my descriptions. I take my style from Ayn Rand in that.


What do you think makes a good story?
Imagery and word pictures creating the sense of being present in the story.


Is writing your dream job?
No, philanthropist is my ultimate goal, I just need success to achieve it.

Do you have any marketing tips you could pass on to indie authors?
Use technology as much as possible; avoid hand writing as much as you can – it only wastes time.

If you could only watch one television station for a year, what would it be?
Independent Film Channel

How often do you tweet?
Weekly posts, daily retweets.

How do you feel about Facebook?
A great tool reaching a huge population that is sometimes mismanaged.

For what would you like to be remembered?
The love I have for humanity, and my attempt to try and wake it up and correct its course.

Would you make a good character in a book?
I am a character in everything I have ever written, in the future this will become more clear. I am a force for good, but I am not perfect.

What five things would you never want to live without?
Internet Access, Coffee, cool water for swimming, freedom from the struggle to survive, needed medications.

What’s one thing you never leave the house without (besides your phone).

My ink pen.

What do you love about where you live?
The scenery.


What’s your favorite fast food?
Arby's seasoned curly fries.


What is your superpower?
Logic and recognizing probability
.


What do you wish you could do?
If a wish was granted I would ask to be able to control the actions of anyone I had touched.

What would you name your autobiography?
The One.

Would you rather be a movie star, sports star, or rock star?
Movie Star. That gives you the greatest opportunity to impact the widest audience.


What choices in life would you like to have a redo on? 
All the way back to my very young childhood, I should have started doing what I am best at on my very first opportunity to do so.

Who is your favorite fictional character?
Francisco d'Acconia in Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand.

Describe yourself in 5 words.
Driven by love for mankind.


What is your favorite movie?
I claim that it's Pulp Fiction, but there are many close seconds, like It's a Wonderful Life.


What are you working on now?
My next book is two books in one/or two separate titles in Etiam Tu Which Are Whose God? And VIPreA (Voluntary Individual Perception (rational and emotional) re Alignment.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR


The Tak tse Profit spent most of life observing conditions, circumstances and people. In his early childhood he began noting factors such as the influence of the competitive spirit, the importance place on group identity and inclusion, the effects of familia derision on young children and more. He spent most his adult life in service to people known and unknown in one form or another as a defender and utilitarian in his military service, an overseer and protector in his environmental work, or confidant and chauffeur in the service industries. Considering and noting differing factors in life: both in his and others. His reflective approach to life's events and needs for relief from the accumulated negativity he observed and encounter, generated a wealth of insights he would later use to form his philosophy. By the mid 90's his outlook on the future of humanity had become very negative from the years of disappointment he had endured. Feeling humanity was lost and that societal evolution was surely headed a disastrous future he had all but completely given up on any hope for the future. Then as if divinely inspired his young son rejected and admonished his outlook and reminded him that he did not have the right to abandon hope for mankind. Almost clearly telling him that he was, in fact, his brothers keeper. As such he accepted his commission to share the Philosophy of Etiam Tu: inspired by his young son's convicting of  his heart for having given up on mankind.
