In trying to get When One Man Stands to the printers I find myself experiencing what I call the Kreig dilemma. See a friend and Author Andrew Kreig Presidential Puppetry: Obama, Romney and Their Masters told me when writing his last book that the biggest struggle was deciding what information could be left out in order to keep the book at a respectable length. I am experiencing Andy's dilemma in putting When One Man Stands together. There is so much information and I want to make sure that the reader has a crystal clear picture of what took place and in some cases is still taking place, that I can't decide what to trim.
When I think back in my conversations with Andy I remember thinking, 'I would rather have too much information as opposed to not enough.' One area I am torn in is how much information I should publish on those who decided to take it upon themselves to proclaim they are the authority on all things Sinclair? See the fact that these people have publicly made it their published mission to expose all things Sinclair, and have done so in a very public way despite knowing 98% of their claims and post are false, they have forfeited any right to privacy, so just how much about them is enough for the reader to see them for who and what they really are? For example is a mans probation pertinent to showing who and what his mother is? Or is a daughter-in-laws arrest for Deposit Account Fraud necessary? Just how much information is enough to expose ones hypocrisy? Is it necessary to expose one by their married and maiden names? When an individual makes claims online to have family in law enforcement providing them information from databases for law enforcement use only, is it necessary to name all the known members of the family to determine whether they were telling the truth or just blowing smoke up the world wide webs ass?
When people monitored everything published by you online by setting up Google alerts to notify you over the Social Security Administrations computer systems is it okay to publish how ones family members may be connected because of their employment with the State of Maryland?
What about when someone continues to publish that you are engaged in insurance fraud or to claim you are being investigated for insurance fraud by the insurance company you have been insured with for years and are to this day still insured with, knowing their is NO truth in a single word of it?
These are just some of the questions that I am struggling with in just how much information (out of a whole treasure chest of it) is enough to let the reader know the whole story?
One editor I am working with has recommended that I keep chapters in the book around 10 to 12 pages, but that is a difficult task when there is so much information and I like to walk the reader through it in chronological order.
While I am experiencing what I call the Kreig dilemma, I am being told by those working with me that When One Man Stands will be yet another book that the reader will not want to put down. Though one editor did ask me "who is writing this for you," after the chapters sent for editing revealed very few edits being needed. I told them, no one, I am just taking the advice of a friend, and doing this one right.
