Finished

A few minutes ago I shed a tear. Two in fact. Tears of joy. I honestly cannot recall the last time that happened. Was it something wonderful I ate? Or maybe I cried when laughing with a friend? The first draft of my novel is finished. 124 873 words. I can finally play Battlefield 3 … Continue reading Finished

Questions about the Live stream

As most of you have noticed there a "Live" section of this website where you can see a direct stream from my webcam. A lot of people message me on facebook saying it's always offline and if it, on rare occasions, is online it's just an empty chair. The truth is - I'm invisible. When … Continue reading Questions about the Live stream

99% Complete

So, it finally happened. I have written over 400 pages. Even though it feels like a momentous achievement there is more to be done! Four more major events need to happen so it might, unfortunately, be up to another 100 pages before I call the first draft complete. That would bring me back to 80% … Continue reading 99% Complete

Women of the Future

I wanted to do this post a while ago but never had time. So here we go! As a science fiction author one must have a vivid imagination (of course) and be able to foresee social and technological advancements. Not too long ago the Canadian game developed BioWare held a voting competition on Facebook.  In their upcoming … Continue reading Women of the Future

Project 2 update!

I wanted to publish a post about Mass Effect 2 today but since that would make five non-literature posts in a row I decided to give you a brief update instead. The work on Project 2, my debut novel, is going really well. Though I am afraid I will go beyond the 400 page limited … Continue reading Project 2 update!

Over 75% complete!

It is done. Over 75% of my novel completed if everything goes as planned. For a few days I was afraid that I would go way beyond the 400 page limit I set myself but now it seems as if everything is back on track. Not sure what more to tell you. Everything is coming … Continue reading Over 75% complete!

Over 50% completed!

For the alert readers out there you might have noticed that the percentage mark on my "completion scale" for my first novel has reached past 50%! Which is great new. This means I believe more than half of my novel has been completed. If I am honest - I didn't actually like my novel (project … Continue reading Over 50% completed!

My interview

The interview with me was published yesterday in Ystads Allehands. It is, unfortunately, in Swedish so you can't read it. Luckily I'll provide you with summarising bullet points. The headlines is: "His dreams become science fiction." My burning interest for writing took me to the University of Birmingham to get my BA in English with Creative … Continue reading My interview

Prose piece – first chapter of an untitled novel

As mentioned in yesterday's post: this was a University assignment that I chose to publish without making any additional editing. Styles change and I know this piece does not reflect my writing as it is now. Still - it functioned as a step in the giant ladder I'm climbing to become an author - and … Continue reading Prose piece – first chapter of an untitled novel

Update, and what’s to come!

I would first of all like to thank all those who took their time to answer the post-apocalyptic survey! I'll keep it online for a bit longer in case there's anyone who chickened out the first time and would still like to give it a go! I would also like to tell you a bit … Continue reading Update, and what’s to come!
