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!
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
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
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
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!
It had been ten years since I saw this movie last time. It was at the Cinema in Ystad, Sweden, 2001. Like everyone else I was expecting a great movie closely related to the Final fantasy franchise. The two projects had the same father and shared the same name. Of course the movie was greatly … Continue reading Re-watching Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within
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!
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!
