A 4’15 video that oddly describes my DIY journey with a debut novel

This video was shot by two daring free climbers as they scaled the tallest building, under construction, in China.

I instantly liked the fact that the location is Shenzhen – a key city for my novel’s main character, ‘Feng’.

Yet watching the 4’15 unfold and feeling a little queasy, then exhilarated, I sensed something else – a mirror, a metaphor, a moment… the selfie at the summit (at 3’30 if you want to jump cut to it) is a classic but the entire video struck a chord, spoke volumes, resonated with my – albeit far less perilous – DIY journey with a debut novel.

Onwards and upwards…
