Writing Block and July Book Haul

Oh! Hi. Fancy meeting you here.

Have not written anything in weeks. Don’t know why. I think I may be afraid of delving into the details of the stories. Carving them out of the Blob of an idea I dropped out of my mind months ago.

And I also continue buying books without reading a lot. I mean I have 25 books read so far, but still I feel like I am behind because I bought so many.

Here’s the latest Haul, somehow this year is the year of Trilogies.

  • Misspent Youth [Commonwealth Saga Prequel] – Peter F.Hamilton
  • Judas Unchained [Commonwealth Saga] –  Peter F. Hamilton
  • Pandora’s Star [Commonwealth Saga] –  Peter F.Hamilton
  • The Three Body Problem [Three Body Problem 1] – Cixin Liu
  • The Dark Forest – Cixin Liu [Three Body Problem 2] – Cixin Liu
  • Death’s End –  Cixin Liu [Three Body Problem 3] – Cixin Liu
  • Ancillary Justice [Imperial March 1] – Ann Leckie
  • Ancillary Sword [Imperial March 2] – Ann Leckie
  • Ancillary Mercy [Imperial March 3] – Ann Leckie
  • Descender Volume 4: Orbital Mechanics –  Jeff Lemire
  • Monstress Volume 2: The Blood – Morjorie Liu
  • His Dark Materials [1-3] –  Philip Pullman

Hopefully this writing block is coming to an end soon.

Update and Book Haul June

Hello,

well, yes.

Yes, I haven’t written anything. Not really.

But, I did add one short story to my overall Short Story book, based on a dream I had about an Elk. I wonder what direction all those stories will take. So far it worries me (besides them not being any good), that they might just be a wild mix of everything with no coherent topic or flavor. We’ll see, won’t we. If I ever manage to write more than a sentence a day.

Book Haul, no fancy pictures or descriptions…because I am a lazy person

The Farseer Trilogy: Assassin’s Apprentice, Royal Assassin and Assassin’s Quest
(Robin Hobb) –  Time to get started on this 15 Books in multiple Trilogies that are all interconnected somehow.

NOS4R2 (Joe Hill) –  Big fan of Stephen King, let’s see what his son has to offer.

The Diaries of Franz Kafka (Kafka & Max Brod) –  I like to delve into the mind of great authors / writers. I read an excerpt and know I want to know more.

Sleeping Giants (Sylvain Neuvel) –  There is a Robot. A big one. And other stuff.

The Book of the New Sun (1-4) (Gene Wolfe) – This just sounds a bit bonkers. Sci-Fi Fantasy. I am just curious.

Strange Heart Beating (Eli Goldstone) –  I need some sad stories.

Homo Deus: A brief History of Tomorrow (Yuval Noah Harari) –  I just want to know if this is good or just pretentious bullshit from an “intellectual” person.

Including Graphic Novels (which all had well above 100 pages, I go for the collected Volumes) I am currently on Book No. 23 in terms of my reading challenge for this year. I’m a bit behind, because the goal is around 60, but I was very, very lazy the past weeks. I hope to catch up.
