Yep, an interview with me. First one ever!

TheThunderChild.com recently interviewed me about the inspiration for writing The Dao of Dragon Ball book, how Dragon Ball changed my life and other topics related to personal endeavors. They are a science fiction and fantasy website, and Dragon Ball has a good mix of both.

    I haven’t had a chance to read this interview yet but, I still want to congratulate you!

    There are few people who have been more dedicated to their passion as you have and even fewer who are more deserving of recognition for their efforts.

    Congratulations Derek!

    Now that I have read it… WOW! I had no idea you had such an enriched life! You certainly have had a lot of experiences which I hope to share in the future! I had no idea you were on the sopranos game team and I completely support your decision not to encourage violence through your media! It takes a man of strong character to act as you have!

      I’m so used to those parts of my life that I don’t even think about them anymore, but you’re right though, I have been very privileged and need to remember these moments of life and be grateful. It’s easy to forget, but important to remember all the positive things that make us who we are.

      I’m having a hard time finishing the book, because even though I’ve done so much already, there’s still so much left to do. I’m at the point of the race where determination and perseverance are necessary to carry me to the finish line. Words of encouragement really help! Thanks again.

        As I said, you are a man of character and I’m sure there’s nothing that will stop you from finishing the book! The most challenging times are the times where we learn the most about ourselves, are they not? Just think of all the ice cold water waiting for you at the finish line of the incredibly intense marathon of Dragonball! I know I cannot wait to read it!

          Hehe, very true, I am learning a lot about myself at this time. Wherever I have a gap in my character, or an attachment, I falter, and the book’s progress is delayed. Discovering that and getting past it is the key to making progress. Thanks, Cob!
