I just came back from celebrating Midsummer's Eve. In Sweden it's a major holiday (in case you didn't know). It was fun, I have to say, but I did miss not being able to work. I am still waiting for the majority of the agents to respond. Even though I have been rejected five times … Continue reading Midsummer Amnesia
I spent the last three days going through a manuscript I received with corrections and suggestions on how to improve the novel. It also seems my tutor is too busy with his own novel right now that he might not be able to provide me with feedback (oh well). So I might actually start sending … Continue reading Project 2 Update
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

As you might have guessed - I'm back from England. I really wish my visit there had to do with me finding an agent but that is not the case. I went there to have fun and celebrate one of my friends (she turned 22). Now that I'm back I'm processing all the feedback I've … Continue reading Back from England & Other news!
There they stood, the man containing the Core of the universe and the man dressed in white showing but one inhumane eye, gazing upon the rising tower of metal. The pinnacle of man's race - When the sun rose to wake another day they were gone, gone without a trace Babylon, craving in lucidity Babylon, … Continue reading Babylon
I would like to mention that the third draft of my novel, Project 2, is completed and I will send the draft to people later today for review and feedback. Meanwhile I'll work on my query letter. It truly feels like things are starting to get serious now. On another note. I have a … Continue reading The prophecy of Atlas Shrugged and Third Draft Complete!
"Where have you been Fredrik?!" "Well I don't know... hiding in your closet?" No, not really. I have been busy editing (and revising) Project 2. I am currently 3/4 through the novel. It should be ready around Thursday - Friday. Once I'm done editing I'll send it to some friends who will read it and … Continue reading New awards and updates!
Fun fact: 10 minutes ago I thought it was Monday today. Anyway! I'm back from Christmas celebrations. How fun it was. I ate a Christmas cake. Cut right through Santa's face to get a slice. That's how naughty I am! I still managed to get some gifts (can you believe it?) I have written a few poems … Continue reading Human Version 2.0
I'm halfway through my vacation now. Which means that in three weeks time I'll initiate the third edit of Project 2. Even though I am enjoying "doing nothing" I feel lazy and unproductive so I literally can't wait to get started with my writing again! Meanwhile I'd thought I'd give you a quick insight into my life … Continue reading Minor Update (and Star Wars: The Old Republic)
