"Comin’ From the Land of Snow" – Prince’s Autobiography

After publishing my blog entry on Wednesday, I was wondering if I’d find another topic for the week. Well, ask and you shall receive.

Prince just announced that he will publish his memoir in fall 2017.

I received this news at 4 a.m. in this morning. Of course my first response was to freak out, cry and send a frantic e-mail to the professor who helped me with the book. I wondered, “Does this mean I should quit?”

However, after receiving some wonderful encouragement, I’m OK. So, in the spirit of thinking positive, here is why I will keep going:

  • Prince’s publishers, Spiegel & Grau, mentioned that the memoir would be “unconventional” and “poetic.” So it’s likely that our books will be different, especially given that I am focusing solely on his spiritual journey.
  • People write books on artists all the time–even if the artists have autobiographies. It’s not the end of the world.
  • I can use this as an opportunity to push myself and finish the book before his comes out. I still have time. So, it’s time to get back on a schedule.
I am so grateful to have a few people who lift me up during times like these–especially people following my journey online. Here is a snippet of a nice message that I received from someone on Facebook:

 

“I don’t think you should give up….I will buy your book….Your book is a fresh perspective: spirituality. Prince has leaned on his beliefs throughout his career to explain his talents and success. Deep exploration will be fascinating.”
