About Lex van den Oever:
What’s up! I’m Lex, a 25 year old student of, well, a lot of stuff. Officially, I have a Bachelor’s degree in philosophy, and I’m working on my research master’s thesis. Unofficially, I’m a student of martial arts (mainly Japanese jiu-jitsu), crossfit, music, psychology, literature, seduction, entheogens, diet and loads more. These are the topics I have most experience in, and love writing about. In my spare time, of which I have too little, I love playing video games (good rpg’s in particular), going out to clubs/festivals/parties/what have you, or train myself in doing absolutely nothing- yes this is something worth training, and it’s hard… lol.
I’ve been working on a novel for quite a long time now, and I’ve probably written about a 1000 pages, divided over 20 attempts… More on that later, years later probably!
I’ve also written a lot of papers on philosophy- academic philosophy concerning ethical themes mostly.
But right now I’m focusing on writing concise little kindle books in the self-help and self-development area. Guys and gals who want to develop themselves physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually will hopefully resonate with the stuff I’m producing.
What inspires you to write?
I don’t know. What inspires you to do anything? It’s not a concrete thing that I can name, like, this situation or that object. It just happens, and I happen to enjoy it when I do it.
