Explore The Unknown
I could utilize Amity Works to grow further amongst what I want to do, learn more about people, learn about how they operate, connect with them better and utilize new connections to grow the business that I'm trying to grow.
Fear of death is common as is fear of betrayal and fear of not being accepted or even fear of not being able to pay bills on time. These are all cases of constant unknowns. They are everywhere and often they cause us great anxiety. But to some, to the explorers of this world, unknowns are little more than an opportunity for edification and adventure.
Videographer, actor, writer, and director Chris Henry is writing a novel series that is about “A family who gets themselves involved in political warfare that turns into a disaster and causes lots of mayhem between them as revenge starts to become a major part in the downward spiral of his family.”
His inspiration for the story is the unknowns of life. Unknowns that he’s no stranger to. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, he, his aunt, and his brother’s girlfriend were alone in a shelter in Texas when a random family offered to take them in. The three accepted the generous offer, and when it was time for them to part ways and return home to New Orleans, Chris stayed. The unknown of living with a strange family, that was not his own, called out to him, and that kind of exploration still appeals to him to this day.
“I like putting myself in a situation where I felt like it would be a good story. So one thing I've done is to stay at people's homes when I don’t necessarily need to.” His home explorations are for the purpose of observation for his writing craft. He likes to see how different family dynamics function and he enjoys building the relationships that come with being accepted into the family of another.
“I could utilize Amity Works to grow further amongst what I want to do, learn more about people, learn about how they operate, connect with them better and utilize new connections to grow the business that I'm trying to grow.” For Chris, friendship is about business as much as it is about connection. He describes his approach to friendship as “Hit or miss,” as he feels that his desire to incorporate others into his businesses has caused others to feel that they could take advantage of his kindness, but it has led to some flourishing partnerships in videography, writing, and life.
“Being friends with other writers helped me write more because I have people around pushing me, which is what I've been trying to do. There was one guy that I was meeting up with every week or two to talk about our books. We were doing that for like two months and then it just stopped and I think that's why I started writing less again.” On Amity Works, Chris could find writing groups galore, to help him turn his 7 book dream into a multi series reality.
