…that I haven’t abandoned blogging, though it obviously seems that way. I’m as busy as ever, and in my free time I read a lot of books, and that’s basically what I’m doing right now. I’m also working on the Wavesongs character sheets and it’s so much fun, it really is. I’ve known these characters for five years now and this past month I’ve learnt so many new things about them, about the plot, everything. I love plotting, but it’s also always been my weakness because I’m impatient, I just want to start writing the story, get on with it. This time it’s easier, I guess, because I’ve written this particular story already (with a bunch of differences, but still), and I’m at a point where I really want to explore all the aspects of it, and move slowly. I’m more careful with it this time, I know how easily stories can take a wrong turn and I honestly don’t wish to start over from scratch for a fourth time. Third time’s the charm, and all that.
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 know, I’m really bad at updating. It’s really hard to find the time and I haven’t had anything to blog about either, since I haven’t worked on Wavesongs for a long time. But now I’m finally in the process of plotting the story, which has taken a lot of time since I felt the need to write short stories for a while and sort of write freely, without a deadline, without any plans or character limits. It’s been really good for me and I’ve had a lot of fun – I’ll keep writing short stories, of course, but not all the time because I do need to focus on my novel projects.
Wavesongs plotting is mostly difficult and frustrating right now, but it’s getting there, no matter how slowly. I didn’t think I’d need to change that much, but it will be a completely different story – and I’m happy about that. I’ll be able to make my otp happen for real, after all, and that makes me very happy. My hopes are also that I’ve learnt from my mistakes and will write a much better and more exciting story this time. We’ll see, but from the ideas I’ve had already I think it will be a really fun trilogy to write. Much more than before because it will be a lot less angsty.
I can’t make any promises about updating more often but I’ll try to come up with ideas for the blog as well, in between thinking about those pirates 😉
Nu har jag skaffat en ny bloggdesign. Känns väldigt bra, hoppas ni gillar ni också. 🙂 Säg till om ni hittar några konstigheter!
So, the blog has a new design. I’m really happy with it and I hope you’ll like it as well. 🙂 Please tell me if you find anything weird and I’ll try to sort it out!
Jag har inte uppdaterat på en hel månad, insåg jag, och det är såklart inte bra alls. Hela sommaren har varit galen, med mycket jobb och mycket skrivande och två flyttar, vilket är två för mycket. Nu kan jag förhoppningsvis bo kvar på samma ställe ett tag!
Från och med nu ska jag försöka bli lite bättre på att uppdatera, vi får se hur det går. Säg gärna till om det är något ni vill veta mer om eller skulle vilja läsa om här på bloggen!
(Min ambition är att blogga på både svenska och engelska nu, förresten. Så nedan kommer en översättning:)
(I’ll try to write in both Swedish and English from now on.)
I haven’t updated this blog for a whole month, which is really bad. This summer has been crazy, with lots of work, lots of writing, and two moves in a few months, which I wouldn’t recommend to anyone ever. Hopefully, I’ll be able to stay in the same place for a while now!
I can’t make any promises but I will try to get better at updating from now on. Please tell me if you have any questions, or if there’s anything you’d like me to blog about!
