Gaia is the word for "unity-of-life-processes". The experiment here is to unify the various threads of voice and sense of self together into an undivided unity. Spirituality, economics, politics, science and ordinary life interleaved.

Storytelling Versus Bestseller

The top 4 % of writers are the super elite, according to the 80-20 rule.

Simply put: Twenty percent of writers earn eighty percent of the successes. These are the elite writers.

Of those twenty percent, however, four percent earn 60% of the successes. These are the super elite writers, which this entry will deal with today.

To recap: the difference between the 80 percent ordinary writers and the 20 percent elite is that the ordinary writers write novels, whereas the elite writes create stories.

What is the difference between the 16 percent elite and the 4 percent super elite? The answer is obvious and simple:

The sixteen percent create STORIES. The four percent create BEST SELLERS.

The intention of this entry is to explore the difference between a best seller and a story. I will add more later on. But for now I am posting this to draw the crucial difference immediately.
