Blog! How I’ve missed you!
The truth is that life has taken my sleep and my words and has left me almost robotic, studying and working. (oh, and I moved houses!)
The fact now is that uni has finished for the year (half way to being a qualified publisher/editor), I’m settled into my new home – photos to come – and I’m returning to blogging.
NaNoWriMo is coming up in just over a week and I’m frantically planning my novel so that I’m ready to write my little heart out. My characters have started having conversations in my head at the most awkward times. I’ve been in the shower, driving my car or watching a movie, and have had to stop, pull over or jump out and write their conversation out. It’s taking on a world of it’s own.
I’ve been doing a lot of research lately, too, however I’m a bit worried that the company I need to research won’t help me with information, which could throw me off slightly, but hopefully isn’t too detrimental.
Here is what I’ve read in August and September. Not as much as I’d hope but I was overseas, had exams and was moving houses… I have 8 books in the mail from Book Depository though, which is exciting.
Simone Elkeles - Perfect Chemistry
Simone Elkeles - How to Ruin a Summer Vacation
Courtney Summers - Cracked up to be
Sarah Dessen - Dreamland
Sarah Ochler - Twenty Boy Summer
David Nicholls - One Day
Jenny Han - It's Not Summer Without You
Veronica Roth - Divergent
Jenny Han - We'll Always have Summer
Here is a quote I found recently, from one of my favourite writers of all time, Etgar Keret.
