A High-Spirited Creative Nonfiction Memoir/Journal about Souls, Sex, Very Liberal American Politics, and Some Other Stuff

                                            Chapter XLIV

                                             March 2012

  Monday, March 05, 2012 (And my ((CST)) current-time is: 4:19am.)

  Dear www.kickstarter.com community,

  A long story short…

  My creative nonfiction memoir/journal is like no other. It does what none has ever done before. It slaps the gnarly-piss out of our entire traditional book industry, for constantly doing what they have always done. And it also reaches way-down-deep-inside you, and grabs, and grips. Then, it gently rips your spirituality (your soul) out of your physical body. And then, it holds your soul (your spirituality) right-up in front of your face, just long enough for you to get a real-good look close-up. And then, just when my manuscript thinks it has had enough of doing all that stuff to you, it throws your soul (your spirituality) out into the cold-cruel-physical-world-of-reality for all of us to see you differently too; or at least, that will definitely happen to most (of the some of you), who are willing to risk your mind being blown by reading…

  My “Book” (some-way/some-day) called…

  Connecting the Web: A Troublemaker’s Guide to the Universe

  My creative nonfiction memoir/journal starts in October 2002, and it climbs all the way through the calendar to today. And, yes…

  Today’s memoir/journal entry is already in there.

  Today’s memoir/journal entry is the end-all/be-all of Chapter (44) XLIV. And here we go, really deep into all of this shit somewhere…

  I am basically (and blatantly) asking, are we staring at the mirror of the Universe, or are we staring into the Universe's mirror? I mean...

  If we search for the common denominators of our being human, at the end of our long-ass days, we will end-up finding our humanity. And if we search for our humanity, at the end of the day, we will end-up finding (our spirituality) our souls.

  Hello…

  At the end of today’s memoir/journal entry, after all of these long-ass years, I am still just another creative artist of nonfiction. My name is John E Zett III. And I barely graduated from high school. Today, I am just another tortured-starving-artist-nothing-nobody. And…

  This project is all about me, souls, sex, and very liberal politics. And nonfiction can be a prickly-pear, when it comes to the law. I don’t know enough to know what’s what, and what isn’t what, when it comes to the book industry’s laws. I didn’t go to school for that sort of stuff. And…

  I am sitting on the completed manuscript in my computer (9.5 years of my life ((and counting)), 76,000+ words ((polished about as good as I could)), 394 pages ((and growing))). And…

  All of a sudden, I needed to get my shit published yesterday.

  As soon as I can get my stuff to jump through all of the legal hoops nonfiction has to jump through, I’ll be on my way. And…

  Today is the actual sixteenth-anniversary of when all of my personal madness started. After all of these years, from out of nowhere, and for reasons completely beyond my comprehension; I need to launch all of my shit out into the world as soon as I possibly can. Still on my to-do list:

  •Run my creative nonfiction memoir/journal past a big bad-ass attorney.

  •Get this book's ten-pack of ISBNs.

  •Get this book’s LCCN. And then…

  •Run to Amazon and Apple as fast as I can.

  I am asking everyone (who found me here) to pledge a little (or pledge a lot) and get me to $6400 (and help me launch this project.) I pinky-swear-promise, I will work my ass off as fast as I creatively can to get it out into the world. And speaking of working my ass off on all of my projects as fast as I creatively am…

  I totally worked my ass off on my www.kickstarter.com video. If you have the time, please check it out. It’s only, like, 9.5 minutes long, unless you have to hit your pause button once or twice.

  (I only say that, because my Baby didn’t, but I did.) And truth be told…

  “I paused it more than twice. How many times? I aint saying.” And…

  From the bottom-of-my-heart and the bottom-of-my-soul,

  Thank you.
