I’m not dead. Not yet anyways.
But I’ve been working hard on life, work and my book, that already has two drafts though still unfinished.
The problem with me, is I like to edit and if I didn’t have deadlines in my work, I’d probably keep editing the articles until I reach perfection…i.e…I’ll edit forever.
But next month promises to be full of experiences; I’ll travel a lot and hopefully it will help me get some inspiration and find the right route for my book.
I’ve also kept my resolution and started reading outside my comfort zone. The Strain by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan is definitely NOT something I would normally read. The vampire horror book set in our days is quite good actually. I have to admit it took a couple of pages to adapt to the writer(s) style; some phrases and words in sentence were used in a very strange context. But it’s a fast read and once you get used to, it’s a pretty good thriller.
Before I leave you and disappear again in books and writing, here are few lines excerpt of the book I’m writing. It doesn’t give away anything really, but I can feel the emotions between the words and letters of these lines. And this is also what I’m trying to achieve; put felt emotions in words.
Or maybe I just feel them because of February and Valentine’s Day.
Yeah that’s probably it.
She leans against his chest and he wraps his arms around her, gently stroking the back of her neck with his fingertips. When she lifts her head, he keeps his eyes fixed in hers as he gently slides the coat from her shoulders and caresses her bare arms.
Until next time.
