Experience of writing my first book

Writing a book is a very emotional experience, especially when the experience is for the first time. And I am telling this from my own experience. On March 2nd, 2024, my first book was published on the Kindle. A few days later, the paperback and hardcover versions followed on Amazon and then on Notion Press.

The word Utopia, coined by Sir Thomas More in his 1516 book titled Utopia, typically refers to an imaginary community or society that possesses highly desirable or near-perfect qualities for its members. Utopia describes a place of ideal perfection, an impractical scheme for social improvement, or an imaginary and indefinitely remote place. The word “utopia” originates from Ancient Greek, combining “ou” (meaning “not” or “no”) and “topos” (meaning “place”). It translates to “no place,” signifying any non-existent society described in considerable detail. Nature: Hypothetical utopias focus on various aspects such as equality in economics, government, and justice. I am not trying to suggest we will ever achieve this perfect and ideal world. For simple reasons, we are in the reality of a mimetic world. Now before getting to the Mimetic World, let's understand how an algorithm works. What is an Algorithm? In the 21st Century, all li
