Notes from An Alien

~ Explorations In Reading, Writing, and Publishing ~

Alexander M Zoltai ~ The Author of This Blog


NewProfilePicI’m a writer with roaring flames in my heart

I’ve published a novel, Notes from An Alien (get your free copy), and the title of the book was perfect for this blog, since I’ve felt like I’m from SomeWhereElse for most of my life.

I also published an e-book of Strange Fantasies for 99 cents; but, you can read all those stories, Free, here on the blog. :-)

I use this Blog to help you explore Reading, Writing, and Publishing—Monday through Friday.

Saturdays and Sundays are still work days—attending to my other writing :-)

If you’d like a quick view of my thinking-style and a glance at this blog’s purpose, check out this post.

Here’s My Amazon Author Page.

~ I have a poetry book at FastPencil; but, you can also get it free.
Plus, here are more books that are free to download
And, a little Virtual Fable  :-)

    Alexander,
    I found your site from Haley Whitehall’s site. I really like the information and opinions that you impart here. One of the things that makes writing so liberating is the ability to let the many sides of ourselves out. I really love the interviews that you do. I am going to check out “Notes from an Alien” soon.

      I’m very glad you like the interviews, as some of my regulars don’t :-)

      I hope to see your feedback and comments in the posts…

      And, I agree about writing letting us explore and show our many sides.

    Happy to meet you Alexander! “…writing letting us explore and show our many sides.” This resonates with me on so many levels as I have only discovered my passion for writing in this, my 57th year. I was unemployed since late 2009 and just about to hang myself when a friend suggested I read her blog. Without the boring details, my life changed from that very moment. I have found a way to get things out and express myself as never before. Why didn’t I think of this before? I have always kept journals, but intermittently and written only superficially within. On the surface, I enjoy humor, but have a very “fiction” side to me. So there it is. That’s why I’m here. I believe this is a good place to make acquaintances with other writing lovers and to learn. Thanks for sharing!

      Terri,

      I wrote little bits until I hit 42. A brief poetry phase happened then I went dark till I was about 63. Now, I’ll be writing till I die :-)

      I recommend you read all the Author Interviews on this blog–many different and enlightening views

    HI Alexander, many thanks for dropping by and commenting on Gils story. I have noticed you on Once’s blog, but hesitated to drop by as your conversations were so involved and deep, that it left me floundering a bit… Totally unsure, therefore backing off slightly, I wonder sometimes about my ability to understand complex ideas.. .
    Strange you should use the word Alien. I’ve felt this way for most of my life, :-D … almost one step out of sync with everything. (or almost everything) and whereas a young child I felt I was older than my years and more sure of myself, I now feel getting older I find myself somehow feeling younger and more…unsure of myself. Terrible state to find oneself in, truly. …. Many, many thanks for your comment and compliment. xPenx

      So

      We share feeling like an alien and feeling old and sure when young and young and unsure when older

      Wonderful!!! :-)

    I’ve just read PlanIt. I’m still not sure whether I was reading a piece of prose, a poem, or most likely, a mixture of the two. Not that it matters either way, it was interesting and enjoyable from end to end. It’s amazing, whatever form of literature it may be claimed under. :-) Thank You again.

      Dear Barbara,

      PlanIt is as hard to classify as Notes from An Alien

      It’s a Virtual Fable Maybe :-)

    Alex, your blog is the bottom end of the funnel that I use to find everything to do with writing. After a little squeezing the world opens up before me. May it always be full and never clog.

      Whoot !!

      Never been the bottom end of a funnel, Barb :-)

      But I can handle that my blog may be that

      This is High Praise you offer me and definitely gives me a surge of commitment to maintain my bottom end :-)

      Thanks, So Much, Barb.

    Just wanted to reiterrate that I think you are an excellant editor. Each comment you made to “A Tretise On Ghosts) was clear and understandable. Besides learning from them while correcting the mistakes I had made, I understood why they were mistakes and easily corrected them each. Thank You very much. Barbara

    Alexander

    I am now, but I write of the future
    While I write, now becomes the past
    I must write faster, or the past will catch me
    And my writing will become the present
    Rather than the future.
    So I must jump ahead five hundred years
    So that I can stay ahead, at least in my thoughts
    But even as I think ahead, my mind is in the present
    So alas, I am currently a writer, and an author in the future
    I am Alex. I travel time through my thoughts and actions.
