PEN NAME MACHIAVELLIAN CRICHTON

THE GENRE OF THE SERIES OF BOOKS UNDER THIS PEN NAME WOULD BE A MACHIAVELLIAN VERSION OF THE UCA PHILOSOPHY.

THE INTRODUCTION:

LET US PRETEND THINGS WERE ALWAYS EASY. LET US PRETEND THAT ON THIS ROAD WE TRAVERSED FOR OH SO LONG, THERE WERE NEVER TRAITORS IN THE MIDST. LET US PRETEND WE NEVER HAD TO DEAL WITH LIARS. US PRETEND WE WERE NEVER CRIERS. LET US PRETEND WE WERE NEVER FORCED TO UTTER THE TRUE WORDS CAUSING OTHER TO SHED TEARS.
LET US PRETEND THEY GAVE A HOOVER DAM ABOUT US. LET US PRETEND THEY DID NOT HAVE A GLOW IN THEIR EYES WHEN THEY HURT YOUR FEELINGS. LET US PRETEND THERE WAS NO GLOW! LET US PRETEND THERE WAS NOT A WHIFF OF SATISFACTION IN THEIR MOMENTUM. LET US PRETEND THEY DID NOT SEEM PLEASED AT THEIR OWN ACTIONS. LET US PRETEND WHEN THEY HAD LEVERAGE OVER US, THEY DID NOT USE IT ANY AND EVERY TIME THEY EVER WANTED TO.
LET US PRETEND THAT THEY SAW US AS EQUALS. LAUGHS. LET US PRETEND THEY DID NOT JUDGE US BASED ON THE AMOUNT OF MONEY WE HAD AVAILABLE AT OUR OWN DISPOSAL. OUR DISPOSABLE INCOME. LET US PRETEND THEY DID NOT ARGUE WITH US OVER OUR OWN DISPOSABLE INCOME OR OVER WHAT THEY THOUGHT SHOULD BE OUR DISPOSABLE INCOME. LET US PRETEND THERE WERE NEVER ANY ARGUMENTS WHATSOEVER OVER OUR OWN DISPOSABLE INCOME. LET US PRETEND. LET US PRETEND THEY DID THE RIGHT THING FOR THE SITUATION AND EVERY SITUATION. LET US PRETEND THEY HELD THEMSELVES ACCOUNTABLE FOR BEING PROPERLY CONDUCIVE. LET US PRETEND THAT THERE WAS NO GLOW.

CHAPTER ONE:

LET US PRETEND, THE GREATEST ACHIEVEMENTS I HAVE MADE TO MY CREATIVE ARTISTRY PORTFOLIO, LET US PRETEND THOSE ACHIEVEMENTS WERE NOT ACHIEVED IN TIMES OF GREAT DANGER. LET US PRETEND SOME OF THE GREATEST BOOKS I HAVE CREATED WERE NOT CREATED DURING MY EXPERIENCING SOME OF WORLD'S WORST EMOTION. LET US PRETEND THEY DID NOT OCCUR DURING TIMES OF THE WORST PAIN. LET US PRETEND THE PHONE GIRL BOOK DID NOT ARISE FROM THE PHONE GIRL SITUATION. LET US PRETEND THE CFK NOVELS. DID NOT ARISE FROM THE PAIN FROM THE JFK ASSASSINATION RESEARCH PERIOD. LET US PRETEND CLEVER LAND HAD JUST BEGUN. LET US PRETEND CLEVER LAND AND CLEVER FIELD WERE NOT CREATED UNTIL AFTER I FOUND OUT I WAS THE VICTIM OF IDENTITY THEFT AND STOLEN TAX RETURNS AT THE HANDS OF MY OLDEST BROTHER.
LET US PRETEND I DID NOT HAVE TO STOP WORKING ON CLEVER LAND UNTIL I WAS IN A BETTER EMOTIONAL STATE AS TO BETTER CREATE THE EMOTIONALLY REQUIRED CONTENT. LET US PRETEND THAT THE WAY YOU FEEL IS THE WAY YOU WRITE. LET US PRETEND CLEVER LAND REQUIRED EMOTION I WAS NOT FEELING AT THAT MOMENT.
LET US PRETEND ROTTEN APPLE IS A BOOK I WROTE DURING THIS TIME WHEN I STOPPED CLEVER LAND. ROTTEN APPLE IS A BOOK MY MOM MADE ME PROMISE HER I WOULD NOT RELEASE IT UNTIL SHE WAS NO LONGER ALIVE. I WROTE IT TO EXPRESS IT, NOT TO RELEASE IT COMMERCIALLY. LET US PRETEND I DID NOT HAVE TO GET THAT HORRIBLE EMOTION OFF OF ME.
LET US PRETEND I WAS NOT ALREADY WORKING ON A STORY WHEN I HAD TO STOP WORKING ON THAT STORY TO WORK ON A STORY REPRESENTING MY CURRENT EMOTION. LET US PRETEND THE EMOTION INTERRUPTING MY LIFE CAN INTERRUPT A STORY I AM ALREADY WORKING ON. IT DOES NOT MATCH THE EMOTION OF THE CURRENT STORY YET IT INTERRUPTS MY CONNECTION TO THE NEEDED EMOTION FOR THE STORY.
LET US PRETEND CLEVER LAND WAS NOT WRITTEN DURING THE TIME I WAS PREPARING FOR LIFE IN THE NAVY. I FAILED THE EYE EXAM IN MARCH 2016. I WAS ALWAYS GOING TO FAIL THE EYE EXAM. LET US PRETEND SOME OF THE FIRST BOOKS I CREATED WITHOUT WRITING THEM DID NOT OCCUR WHILE LIVING WITH MY OLDER BROTHER.
LET US PRETEND I HAVE NOT HAD DIARIES SINCE THE PHONE GIRL SITUATION OCCURED IN MAY 2015. LET US PRETEND EVER SINCE THE PHONE GIRL SITUATION I HAVE NOT KEPT FULL DIARIES AND THEY HAVE NOT HELD MUCH PAIN DUE TO THE FORMAT IN WHICH THEY WERE CREATED. REGARDLESS OF THE CONTENT. LET US PRETEND THAT THE GREATER MY CREATIVE LEAPS AND BOUNDS WERE, THE GREATER THE EMOTIONAL PAINS I FELT AND THE HARSHER THE SENTENCE I WAS TO LIVE OUT.
LET US PRETEND THAT THE MOMENT WHERE I SQUIRM WITH THE EMOTION I YEARN TO NOT SPURN OUT OF ME. CAN ONLY BE STILLED BY SITTING STILL AND REMAINING CHILLED. WITH THE ONLY DESIRE TO KILL IS TO KILL THE POINT ON THE PAGE AFTER THE JOINT COLLAPSES. THE PAIN IS CONNECTED TO THE GAIN...SYNAPSES.
