To Call Them To Wander

by Nic Olson

I wrote a book. I italicize because the word wrote is being generous, I mostly sent the ideas to my fingers who pressed the buttons in a specific order to make words that form sentences that sometimes made sense. As for book, it is more a short collection of opinion and rage that at times adhere to a common theme, than an actual book. Five years ago someone jokingly told me that I should write a book and five years ago I was stupid enough to think this was a good idea.

To Call Them To Wander was a project that saw me through many lonely nights in a time where I sorted through my values and beliefs more than I sorted through my underwear. And the idea organization likely demonstrates this well. Owing to the help and encouragement from a few key friends it is now finished and ready to distribute in the modest quantities that are willing to read it.

At the end of the process I didn’t even like the writing anymore. I haven’t read it in nearly six months and never plan to read it again. I’ve already found several grammar mistakes. But if you are interested in reading a paper copy or a free digital copy, then please see here.

I never claimed it would be great, but now I can at least claim that the experiment is complete. Thank you for your support and patience.
