Lourenço Torresini asked Mokokoma Mokhonoana:

With so many ideas, how do you start writing a book?

Mokokoma Mokhonoana First thing first, I'm sorry for such an embarrassingly late reply. For some reason, I did not get notified when you made that enquiry. Anyway…

Once I have an illusion, or a collection of illusions, I'd like to expose if not shatter, I try to arrange the major opinions and/or facts I have with regard to the subject or subjects of the book into chapters, and then I confront one of the most challenging literary endeavors: writing a page—the very first of the book (excluding the introduction, of course)—that will leave me with enough pride and excitement to fight whatever obstacles that lie ahead.
