  • How do you create something that immediately can be that resonates with people?

  • How are you able to write that way?

  • Why did you tell the truth?

  • I remember when I was suffering with depression.

  • When I was younger, I was married, got young Children very depressed, trying to read books and trying to find out what was wrong with May.

  • You know, I was tortured by depression.

  • I remember.

  • I remember looking at box and reading things and thinking I need to find the truth.

  • And none of them were giving me the truth.

  • I was reading stuff and thinking This isn't honest.

  • This isn't They're not telling the truth here.

  • I need I need someone to tell me why I feel like this.

  • And they weren't doing it.

  • I remember thinking way back then when I find the truth, I'm gonna tell everybody.

  • So when I eventually did go on the doors and confront my fears and I built a pyramid of fears and climbed up, it became a bouncer.

  • When I found the truth, I decided I'm going to write a book and I'm going to tell the whole truth.

  • Remember my older brother Ray, who was also a writer.

  • He read the first draft of Watch My Back, and he said to me, You sure you want to release this?

  • And I said Why?

  • And he said, Because you're so vulnerable in this and I said, Yeah, but what's the point of doing a book?

  • If I can't be vulnerable, who is he going to help if I can't be vulnerable?

  • I didn't realize Brian, but I didn't realize, but I'd actually triggered on the secret to the tree of Life.

  • There's an old saying in Judaism, says the master sets the table for the servant before he eats himself.

  • In other words, if we want to know something, if you want to find something, find somebody that needs it more than us.

  • It will be given to you so way we receive in order to share.

  • Now.

  • I did that by accident because I just thought that must be loads of kids out there who are suffering like may.

  • Waking up a four in the morning in a cold sweat with their wife.

  • Next, um, in bed asleep who, you know can't help you on your Children next door.

  • And you know you can't explain to them while you're so depressed.

  • And the doctor who wants to give you pills because he doesn't know the answer, either.

  • And you are surrounded by people and nobody.

  • Nobody seems to want to help you or they can't help you or they are.

  • They are, they are.

  • They don't know the truth or they can't articulate the truth or the too afraid to say the truth.

  • So I got up the courage to tell the truth.

  • That's all I do, really.

  • I pick up on the rhythm of the Coventry's very poetic city.

  • I pick up on the rhythm.

  • I love the dialogue.

  • We spoke about it and I love sound.

  • The Japanese call it coated.

  • I'm a Goku, the use of magic sound in Egypt.

  • In Egyptology, they call it Hecker.

  • Same thing, magic sound.

  • So I picked up on that rhythm and recognized it wasn't just the words, just the truth.

  • It was about the rhythm.

  • The rhythm could be healing.

  • I was talking to one of your lads out there, James and he said he read, Watch back in one, sitting in 120,000 words, but it's because of the rhythm is pleasing and it's easy on.

  • It's full of truth.

  • But you know, it's full of truth when you're scared to share it.

  • When you're scared to give it out to somebody, when you're scared to let somebody read it when you're scared to publish it, you know you've hit truth.

  • And the truth means, uh, going inside yourself like a pin in a crab shell and pulling out the last vestments off sin or error or duplicity or fear.

  • Whatever it is that you're hiding from wherever it is, that's inside your wherever.

  • Parasites in there you find it, you pull it out on you, transfer that onto the page, you transform, you transfer the truth, and it becomes you transferring the material into the spirituals, you transforming the dark into the light.

  • So I was taken all of these fears, all of these depressions, all of these kind of conflicting, divided voices, and I was putting them onto the page.

  • I was exposing them to light, and I was giving them life outside of May.

  • I'll tell you a story that I've never told anybody with.

  • Romans had a voice in my head.

  • My Tommy was playing that my stomach was really bad, and I started to communicate with this element in May or this elemental and I said, What do you want?

  • He says, You know what I want?

  • I said, Articulate what you want.

  • I said, I can feel you with me.

  • I can feel you there.

  • What do you want?

  • He said, I want life outside of you.

  • I want life eternal outside of you and I said, How do you want that?

  • He said, You know how I want it And I said, You want me to write Romans?

  • But I said, I've already written Romans Romans 12 20.

  • Then it clicked.

  • There's a bigger story.

  • Romans, 12 20 was about a short version of Romans, which was about the conflict off a person that's been abused at the age of 11 on it, displacing it violently the age of 30 or 40.

  • But there are other elements.

  • It wanted me to talk about the relationship with people, why people deny that you've been abused because they're afraid of it.

  • The police, you know, maybe family, maybe friends.

  • Maybe this internal voice that says you're getting a lot of mileage out of this, aren't you?

  • On it so it wanted It wanted a life outside of me.

  • So I was working with Paul and Ludwik.

  • She imagine who, as you know, I love the visionary.

  • They wanted to give me notes and said they don't want any notes.

  • I don't need any notes.

  • This element inside, he knows what it wants to say.

  • I'm gonna bring, and I'm gonna say it.

  • I'm gonna put in a lot of the things that I'm afraid to put in the things that I'm afraid for my wife to read.

  • The things I'm afraid for my agent to read the things that I'm afraid to put out into the public.

  • I'm gonna put the whole lot down.

  • Why?

  • Why my wife?

  • Why don't you want stop my wife?

  • Uh huh.

How do you create something that immediately can be that resonates with people?
