I think that as a non-fiction piece of text I can honestly say that I holds its own. Originally I was not even suppose to publish “On the notion of Crime” for a few years. However I am very happy that I decided to in the end.
When I wrote it, I wrote it for what I stand for and believe in. Which is an important element when writing because of you write for others, you prevent yourself from producing a truly beautiful piece of literature.
The writers process is very important. I believe that every writer has their own.
I went to Somaliland to my research and write my book because I did not want to write or rewrite a book that had already been written. I wanted to write something new, fresh and exciting. My goal was to write a piece of literature that reflected my values, perspectives and morals.
I believe that over the past few months I achieved that which is a truly amazing thought.
AThere are some really weird thoughts for example the existence of this came into being by a few factors:
- My search for enlightenment
- My visit to Somali Orphange
- My education at university studying Criminology
- Having questions I seeked answers to
- Interviews with famous academics
These ideas and leaving no stone unturned mentality allowed this book to come into being.
I definitely encourage other academics, activist, bloggers and authors to use this process because it does not allow you to grow as a person but it also allows you to have an insight into a global society in which many people as oblivious to.
So ask questions, find answers and travel as much as you can.
During the writing of this book. I also decided to donate all proceeds of this book to Boroma’s Orphans paying for basic necessities. To make a donation to the adorable Orphans, whom I became inspired visit http://www.idrisspublishing.com
