Can you write a book in a week?
From July 26th to August 1st, I did just that. My name is Paul Carroll, Dublin based writer and author of Balor Reborn. The book brings Irish mythology and folklore to the 21st century, reviving the old tales of the nation of story tellers.
I call it NaNoWriMo on fast forward. As an added element of excitement, I did it on camera. The purpose of live-streaming the creative process is to demystify it. The global climate stresses an importance on creativity for personal happiness and business success.
You might be wondering, why an old story? It’s simple: I wanted to write a book that would mean something to the country. We’re famous for telling stories, and I don’t want to let the old ones vanish. Bringing the story of Balor into a modern light will hopefully remind people of the old Irish stories. If I do it right, it might revive some of the magic of Ireland.
