I have been tagged in "The Next Big Thing Blog Hop" by Pete Denton. His original post can be found here! He too, like I, is an author worth checking out! The Next Big Thing Blog Hop started on She Writes a while back and has spread quite rapidly. So - What does this mean? Well … Continue reading The Next Big Thing Blog Hop
I can't believe a month passed by just like that! What have I been doing - you might ask yourself? Well, lots. Mainly whipping Project 1 into shape, printing it, sending it to people (both in physical and electronic form), looking for novels similar to Project 1 that I can use for my query, written poetry … Continue reading A month passed
I feel bad for not having written anything in a while but I've spent as much time as possible, while trying not to lose my sanity, on revising Project 1. It has been done and the third draft is complete. It is the draft my beta readers will read so I'm starting to send those … Continue reading Non-linear narrative [Choice of Games] & Project 1 update!
I have been back for almost two weeks and only recently began to edit Project 1 (my second novel). In so many ways this is, and probably always will be, the most important text I have written because, as most of you know, I wrote the first sentence of it almost eight years ago when … Continue reading When writing becomes haunting
How time flies. For the past week I've been working on a short story and hoped to have time to write another afterwards before I go to America. Well - no. Time flies, as they say, and when I finished the short story I not only realized I hadn't written anything here in nearly a … Continue reading Time Passes
When I worked on Project 1 yesterday I reached 100 000 words and thought "I am nowhere near done!" I had over 20 000 words left to rewrite and that still only accounted for half the novel. But publishing a YA novel with over 200k words is impossible for someone like me. Then, while pondering, … Continue reading Project 1 finished!
Inspiration is a wondrous thing. It can be a picture, a sentence, a thought - and all of a sudden you sit by your computer again, working hard to finish your manuscript after hours of writer's block. This happened a week ago. I was revising Project 1 when I just couldn't rewrite anything any more. I opened … Continue reading Inspiration: A Poem for Byzantium
Today I rewrote over 40 pages... I hope you can see why I haven't been able to come up with a lot of stuff to post here. It feels like a squid resides in my skull. But as least I'm working diligently! - F H Hakansson
In two hours I will receive the last phone call from my beta readers with feedback on Project 2. I will then proceed to edit the text once more before sending it to my tutor (when he becomes available. He's in the USA at the moment). I also resumed Project 1! This is very exciting … Continue reading Project 1 & 2 update

Copy down the next 7 lines, sentences, or paragraphs as they are written. 4. Tag 7 new authors. Technically, I just resumed Project … Continue reading Lucky 7 Meme
