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.

 

Because that’s what Writers do…

Setting up a blog that is and writing. Mainly the writing part.

So hey, here I am writing things. Re-discovered my account that past me had created in 2009 and I shall use it for all things considering my beard. And my writing.

Rundown of the current situation:

Beard –  coming in strong from nearly a 11 month streak, now being trimmed for the past 3 months. I guess its time to let it grow again. Kinda like a reminder to write. Once “something” is finished I may consider a barber visit. Guess pictures will follow.

Writing – Have not practiced creative writing in almost 11 years. Back then I was much into short stories and poetry.  But I think I was not good at getting negative feedback, so I quit. Not sure why I picked it up now again, but I guess a new found old passion is still a passion. Currently working mainly on my short story book, that I plan to finish and then self publish. Also have room for novels but small steps. For now I am contempt that I manage to do “something” everyday and be it just research.

More about each story will follow.

Thanks,

R.
