21-Year-Old Shares His First Novel And His View Of Managing Creativity Thursday, November 21, 2019 | Sacramento, CA Listen / Update RequiredTo play audio, update browser or Flash plugin. Courtesy of Peter Vickland How’s this for a storyline: a young writer, still in his teens, is talking with friends about their fears about the future. Fears that their vibrant artistic passions would become stifled as they got older. Fears that they’d be forced into jobs they dread. Fears that full self-actualized happiness wouldn’t be theirs. The young man takes this idea and turns it into a novel, called "They Wept Ink." The novel is a ghost story. And he gets it published. He attains a career he never thought possible. This is pretty close to 21-year-old Sacramento native, Peter Vickland’s story.
