Bad blogger is Back! Wooo-hoooo-hoooo
So what are you doing today?
And what I’ve done in the past three days?
To tell you the truth – not much. I’m still in the middle of the ‘Limitless’ tv-show (about the guy who’s using a special kind of drug each day and it is making him a smart ass. Ops! He’s of course working for FBI and solving different crazy cases). I don’t know, I just like the guy I guess…that’s why I’m watching it. Haha
About the novel. Don’t focus on ‘the description-post’ much – I got it. I know how to steal. Because do not forget:
“Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different. The good poet welds his theft into a whole of feeling which is unique, utterly different from that from which it was torn.”
T. S. Eliot
To sum all this up -> always “Steal like an artist”, the advice that Austin Kleon gives you in his book with the same title (reading now).
A couple of words about the reading. It goes slowly. Very SLOWLY. I don’t know why, but I’m blaming the weather. Or maybe it is just lazy me. The weather is really awesome right now, +26/27 Celsius. And all I am doing – sitting in the garden with my dogs, watching the wind passing by…
What to expect this week? Not much, because the weather report says it will be 3-4 more days of the sunny hooootness. So all I can promise: Two Book Reviews (one – the book about Autism, and second – crime novel about ‘what to expect from the weird dating webs’).
I’m also going to post ‘Pilgrim’-play on Luke Copyright. I’ll probably reblog it or leave the link in the next post, it depends on. And I’m going to post 1 Ayurveda/Mindfulness post.
Also I re-read my novel (‘The Dulcinea Project’). I liked it, the vibe…and I think after the second draft it will be ready for the proof-reader (definitely). To tell you more about it:
- I don’t care really about the genre. I D G F. I’m just writing the way I want. So it probably will be messy: some kind of mix -> non-fiction and sci-fi.
- Yep, it is officially YA novel (don’t we all writing YA? Kind of…). Mmmm, should I say – I don’t care if it does look like YA or not. The hero is 15yo. I don’t think about her much and I do not create any story around her, I’m just telling the way she sees things. That means I AM telling you the WAY I’m seeing things. The story is mine and the visions I’m telling in this story are mine too. Yeah, I’m sure they are crazy some way, but who knows what the world is.
- More details: 5 friends, school for the BIOTECH research, powers, crack in the universe, what is the reality, the usual day of a teenager, why parents are always lying, re-birth of the matter, good and evil isn’t always good and evil, the code, DNA, love, pool-party, Sweden, deaths after deaths after deaths, experiments/tests on humans, code, non-human and much more.
I’m going to check (= read your posts this evening). And have a good week ahead! If some kind of inspiration will strike me – I’ll post. If no: then it will be 2 book-reviews only as I told above.
My personal deadline for second draft – 25 may, because 26 may my mum will come with a visit again. We are planning to go to Prague, but about it later.
Do not forget about ‘The Hero’s Journey’ contest – rules right here
Ray loves you ✌😉
