A new Swedish prince was born yesterday, Prince Oscar Carl Olof Bernadotte. I love the name and, well, I just love anything royal to be honest. Monarchy is problematic, obviously, but I can’t help finding it beautiful that there’s so much tradition and history that comes with having a royal family. I guess it has a lot to do with my writing, too, because I’ve always enjoyed making up stories about aristocrats and the like, and I love luxurious settings. One of the best parts of writing Entertaining the Sombrevilles was to create the family tree, and give everyone names and titles. Coming up with names for characters has been one of my favourite pastimes ever since I was a child. Which means I always have to create lots of characters, just so I can name them.
If I ever have children, they’ll have so many names. Three each would not be enough!
As you may have noticed, I have a new blog design! I was more than tired of the old one and it feels great that the blog looks nicer now. I hope I’m not the only one who thinks it’s better now than before 😉
I’ve also updated the information about Wavesongs, and added another page for Entertaining the Sombrevilles. In case anyone wants to know more about what I’m working on.
I feel like time has been #1 on my wishlist for years now. It’s long since I wanted 48 hours instead of just 24 – now I want at least 72, so I could do all the things I want to do and get enough sleep. It’s the curse of having a creative mind, I guess, because you’re not satisfied with going to work, coming home, watching TV, going to bed. I have so many projects in my head and it’s depressing when you realise how long it will take to finish even one of them. I think too much about this and I should probably improve my mindfulness skills, because there really is no use focusing on an issue that is unsolvable for the time being. I can’t ask for part time right now for various reasons but I know it would make my situation so, so much better. Oh, well. I’m working as fast as I can with the editing and when I’m done with that, I’m at least a little bit closer to finishing that particular project.

Sleep well everyone ❤
