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!
2nd Draft of Project 2 Complete!
Roughly 10 minutes ago I finished the second draft of my second (yet technically first) novel. Now awaits 6 weeks vacation for me! This means that I'll begin on the third draft on the 31st of December! ... but I probably won't since it's New Years. Which means I'll probably be busy on the 1st … Continue reading 2nd Draft of Project 2 Complete!
Dead lover’s scribbles.
Dead Lover's Scribbles 1. Hollow. A bottomless hole of perdition. In my chest. Instead of a heart. "I love you, always and forever. These feelings will never subside. I know this truly. Because you are the one." These were not lies. I know you meant it. When you spoke. People change. What makes them go … Continue reading Dead lover’s scribbles.
Maggots Blisters ache, they throb, and they scar. I scratch. My skinless flesh leaks pus and blood. Maggot infested are these wounds. And my heart. With lipless lips I whisper to her; "Take it!" - F H Hakansson
Another morning. If only I never woke up. The cameras smile and I am ready. They watch me with respect. They want me. But what if they see how broken I am? The light fades. And my mask falls. I did a good job. Holding out. But I kind of wish they would know. That … Continue reading Another Morning
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
A Tale of Agony

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!
5 line stories
Back at the university we had to write 5 line stories based on a random word given to us. I found three of them a few days ago but one was really bad I'll only publish the first two. Playground I see them laugh, I see them cry. The children are playing cheerfully at the … Continue reading 5 line stories
