I know your name.

January 30, 2010 at 19:34 (General)

It has been a fairly good day.
I have spent most of it doing sweet nothing.
And occasionally reading stories labeled as fan-fiction (I am a die hard BBC Merlin fan).
Apart from writing, it is one of my favorite past time activity.
As they say, a writer should read a lot to develop, but you have to be careful not develop in the wrong direction.

It’s now or never…

January 28, 2010 at 18:37 (General)

A vivid imagination can be both a curse and a blessing.
She supplies me with ideas for my stories.
And prevents me from watching horror movies, by threatening to change my dreams into nightmares.
She is one vicious lady.

On why I am fine with not knowing everything

January 26, 2010 at 20:45 (General)

I will try to keep it short this time.
I am fine with knowing a little less than everything.
For one, if I knew everything I am sure my head would explode, or I would spend the rest of my life in a psychiatric ward.
And secondly, it kills all the fun.

Why sometimes more is worse than nothing at all

January 25, 2010 at 21:12 (General)

It will seem as if I can’t make up my mind.
I have complained earlier about the writer’s block that keeps coming back like a boomerang just to annoy me.
Now I am going to complain that I have too many ideas and words in my head.
One can ask:
Is she crazy or what?

On the undoing of even the most promising stories

January 24, 2010 at 19:43 (General)

Hello again,

This time I have decided to face the skeletons in my closet. Ok, maybe just one skeleton and he does not really occupy the closet. He lies comfortably in one of my drawers.
This skeleton is my first finished book.

On me and who am I to tell you how to write.

January 23, 2010 at 22:06 (General)

I know this post was to be about things that shouldn’t be done under no circumstances.

But I have changed my mind.

I thought, here I am, miss wiseacre, sharing insights on writing. And I still have not said anything about myself to prove that I can do this.

Ok, here goes nothing.

On basic plot-building

January 22, 2010 at 20:48 (General)

-You will get tired of this immortality. Once the rush is gone, you will realize that there is nothing beyond this existence. Once you understand that there is no way for you to end it, you will despair. The world will change, the people will change, you will remain. It is a constant game of lost and found. You lose yourself, you lose contact with the world, and then you find yourself, only to get lost again. Over and over.

-Yeah, well tough luck. I am still new to this, so forgive me for not giving a damn. Now, will you teach me all the cool stuff.

I have earlier introduced Samuel, a new-born vampire, who was accidentally changed.

On how to keep yourself out of your books

January 21, 2010 at 00:10 (General)

This is not an easy task.

When the characters are born, they come right out of your head. And they are like your children. They will always bear some resemblance to you, one way or another. This is not your fault. And it is nothing wrong, you know.

Samuel says hi.

January 13, 2010 at 21:32 (General)

Bloody hell. He is annoying. Samuel I mean. He wanted me to introduce him. However, I gave him the privilage to introduce himself.

“My name is Samuel and I am a vampire. You can probably easily imagine an immortal, handsome half-god with shiny fangs. Yeah, that is how I like to think of myself from time to time. Unfortunately, the whole change is way overrated. Twenty years ago, when I have been changed, I was already forty years old, I have been working as an accountant in a small company and I have been married to the same woman for ten years. And the change did nothing to my life.

On people you want to kill even if they’re only in your head…

January 12, 2010 at 11:01 (General)

I have got a problem.

My problem has a name and an ugly face. Ok, ugly is a harsh word, he is at a disadvantage in the looks department. And he is a meanie. He always says what’s on his mind, has a foul mouth and is absolutly obnoxious.

Please, meet Samuel.
