The Inspiration behind “Everything Comes Full Circle”

Welcome back to what may be the last blog before “Everything Comes Full Circle”. I am on page 90 and am determined to finish writing today. Maybe tomorrow at the latest.

I wanted to share where the idea for my book came. It really is two fold. First off, my real life experiences. I was an actor in high school and college. I grew up in a small town where we were one of three high schools that didn’t actually have an auditorium. So the struggles that the students in my book I was all too familiar with. A few years ago, the school finally built one. It connected the high school with the junior high school. I have been to visit my home town since, stood outside the auditorium but for whatever reason I never went into it. It felt weird to me, since I had given up acting years ago. I figured it would make me want to get back into it. I was never a star or even near the top of the cast list. There were times in college I had to beg for roles or threaten to quit the production crew if I didn’t get a part. So to say I was not a good actor was probably putting it mildly.

Secondly, there was a song from Aerosmith called “Full Circle” off the 1995 album “Get A Grip”. So clearly I got the name of the book from that. I wanted to share the lyrics with you as well, because perhaps part of it will be paraphrased in something you will hopefully be reading very very soon:

Yeah, yeah
If I could change the world
Like a fairy tale
I would drink the love
From your Holy Grail
I would start with love
Tell ol’ Beelzebub
To get outta town
‘Cause you just lost your job
How did we get so affected (’cause I think)
Love is love reflected

Time
Don’t let it slip away
Raise yo’ drinkin’ glass
Here’s to yesterday
In Time
We’re all gonna trip away
Don’t piss Heaven off
We got Hell to pay
Come full circle

And if
There’s a spell on you that
I could take away
I would do the deed
Yeah and by the way
Here’s to Heaven knows
As the circle goes
It ain’t right
I’m uptight
Yeah and get off my toes

I used to think that every little thing I did was crazy
But now I think the Karma cops are comin’ after you

Time
Don’t let it slip away
Raise yo drinkin’ glass
Here’s to yesterday
In Time
We’re all gonna trip away
Don’t piss Heaven off
We got Hell to pay
Come full circle

Every time you get yourself caught up inside
Of someone else’s crazy dream
Own it, yeah that’s a mistake
Everybody’s gotta lotta nada killing them
Instead of killing time

Time
Don’t let it slip away
Raise yo’ drinkin’ glass
Here’s to yesterday
In Time
We’re all gonna trip away
Don’t piss Heaven off
We got Hell to pay

Time
Don’t let it slip away
Raise yo’ drinkin’ glass
Here’s to yesterday
In Time
We’re all gonna trip away
Don’t piss Heaven off
We got Hell to pay
Come full circle

Circle, circle, circle, circle, circle, circle, circle

 Definitely look the song up. I think you will like it. As I hope you will like my book.
