I am Marc Gate. And that is not my real name.
But what difference does it make? If you say, “Hey Marc!” I’m going to swiftly respond, “Who’s Marc?… Oh! Yes, Hi there, friend, how can I be of assistance?”
See? It doesn’t make a difference, as long as I respond to it as if it was my real name–despite the short pause of confusion.
I took up this name and started this blog to practice writing, in English. It is the second language I’ve learned after my mother’s tongue and I wish to improve my skills in it, and hopefully become a published author and the richest man on EARTH!
It’s crazy, you know, how people struggle to reach success. They start businesses, follow lucrative careers, build huge factories, etc. But then one person just squeezes his mind and comes up with a brilliant story, and becomes so Rich, famous, and loved that people would scream and faint at his presence.
I know it’s not that easy. Writing a novel is not something that everyone can do. Some writers spend years working on their masterpiece. And the self-discipline that is required to sit and type for thousands of hours should not be underestimated.
It’s even more difficult for me, since English is not my first language. But I will practice and practice until I become the next Tolkien. That’s called being Ambitious, baby! AMBITOUS!
Will I become the next bestselling author? Well, that would be nice! But let’s see if I can keep this blog updated first. My goal is to write every day. And I will write about anything if I don’t have a story to tell.
So to ALL my future crazy-devoted fans, be patient. I will bring you a novel that will let you cry, laugh, wonder, and jump up and down from its excitement.
