Interview with Michael McGinnis, Author of The Essential Revolution
08 Dec 2020
What can you tell us about your new release, The Essential Revolution?
I’ve been working on it for almost four years. I would say that I channeled the book, meaning it was written through me rather than by me. I believe this book can change the world, as it can help change the people who read it.
What or who inspired you to become an author?
I’d never thought of writing before, then one day something told me there was a story that I was to write. That voice laid out the whole thing at once. My parents are both writers. My father also wrote about changing the world, just in a different way.
What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?
The Power of Now, I Am That, Conversations With God, The Autobiography Of A Yogi, and The Four Agreements.
Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?
Eckhart Tolle… Do you ever get upset at anything?
What’s your favorite thing about writing?
The way I get taken over and the words just flow through me.
What is a typical day like for you?
During writing moments I wake up between 330 and 4am and start just before 5am. I continue for as long as I can with only putting lemon water in my body. At about 10am I have a glass of celery juice and go till noon. Then I make a green smoothie and get back to writing for as long as I can. As soon as I eat cooked food the process ends.
What scene from The Essential Revolution was your favorite to write?
I liked writing the second interview scene. The chapter title is Silver for Gold. It took me weeks to finish. I’d say it’s the most dense piece in the book.
Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?
Be the shift you want to see in the world.
