One of the most commonly asked questions any writer (who does not belong to the select few who actually makes a living by writing stories) is about time. When do you have time to write? Do you not do any chores around the house? Don’t you have any friends to see or places to be? No responsibilities after work, right? Always ordering food online, never cooking anything?
Spoiler alert! The plot is about to take a major twist.
The trick is not in finding loopholes in space-time continuum but in working on ideas on the go. Sitting at a desk, fingers resting on a keyboard, does very little to spark imagination. The thinking process can happen, and most often automatically does, when occupied with something else. Brushing teeth or acting as if paying attention to the boss at work are both equally good times for coming up with new content.
So, there you go. One trade secret revealed.
Of course there is still the matter of finding time to put all those brilliant ideas on paper, but maybe we’ll leave that topic for another time. 😉
Strip Club Shooting has gathered some momentum and I’ve received first reviews from readers. As always, it is extremely gratifying to hear what readers have to say about your work. After all, writing novels, or novelette in this case, is lonesome work and you end up second guessing your choices throughout the writing journey. I won’t spoil and reveal anything about the plot here except that it appears to work well, also the choice to go with first person perspective has received positive feedback.
Generally speaking, I fully understand that it is an effort to write a review or get back to the writer after reading a story, but rest assured, if you do, it will be highly valued regardless if the critique is positive or not. Thank you for the feedback and reviews I’ve received so far! I hope to get a lot more in the future as well.
Elinehto oli – minun täydeksi yllätyksekseni – esillä Frankfurtin kirjamessuilla kuun puolivälissä. En ollut edes tietoinen tästä suunnitelmasta, joten uutinen oli minulle sitäkin suurempi kun kustantaja otti asian puheeksi. Ohessa kuva Kariston osastolta.
Roudan alla julkaistaan myös pokkarina. Kirja tulee myyntiin näillä näkymin kesällä 2012.
