Celebration Time

Rainbow flags all over the city. Here at the Nordstan shopping mall. The local Pride festival is happening next week and it’s the first non-socially distanced one since the pandemic. So looking forward to it! In other news, I just finished the first chapter of the second novel of the series I’m writing. I’m aimingFortsätt läsa ”Celebration Time”

It is done!

Yesterday, I wrote the last words to the novel I’ve been writing. Finishing the last chapter took a bit more time than I expected but it also ended up being longer than I originally planned. I’ve got some editing and additional proofreading to do before it is ready to be sent to publishers and literaryFortsätt läsa ”It is done!”

So close!

I have only one chapter left before I’ve finished writing the crime novel I’ve been working on for over a year and a half. The book will be twenty chapters and about 250 A4 pages long. I was aiming for 300 pages but I don’t think I can stretch the plot any more without fillingFortsätt läsa ”So close!”

Reflecting on 1 year of Son of Freya

On the 25th of this month, it will have been a year since I started this blog. This has spurred me to take a moment and reflect on what has happened since then in regards to my spiritual journey and my writing. When it comes to my spiritual life, I can see that two mainFortsätt läsa ”Reflecting on 1 year of Son of Freya”

Inspiration…

… works in mysterious ways. It all started in the beginning of last week when I took my daily post-work nap and dreamt of a book project I’d abandoned years ago. Back then, I was a very different person and the thing that changed me happened while I was writing the book. The message IFortsätt läsa ”Inspiration…”

Late night doodling

I’ve never been good at drawing but I often feel compelled to draw characters and scenes from the things I’m writing. Most of the time, these doodles don’t make sense to anyone but me. I keep them really for myself, as a sort of writing diary/idea catalogue. Often, I’ve grown strangely attached to many ofFortsätt läsa ”Late night doodling”

Here is the word dragon

I’d been thinking about buying a new laptop for probably a year and a half. The one I had kept getting slower and slower but I put up with it because I’m the type of person who only buys new stuff when I really need it. But in the last months, my old laptop wasFortsätt läsa ”Here is the word dragon”

An equation for happiness

The other day I saw a man wearing a shirt that said, in Swedish: Inga förhoppningar, inga besvikelser. Which translates to ‘No hopes, no disappointments’. I laughed to myself when I read it because, as Homer Simpson so eloquently puts it, ‘it’s funny ‘cause it’s true’. People have often called me a pessimist but it’sFortsätt läsa ”An equation for happiness”

A little bit of writing

I didn’t do much writing today but it was enough to finish chapter 13. I had some ice cream to celebrate: My goal is to finish chapter 14 before the end of the month. I might have a minor surgery sometimes soon so I’m setting the bar low since I don’t know how I’ll beFortsätt läsa ”A little bit of writing”

A wild strawberry place

In Sweden, we call favourite places smultronställen (wild strawberry places). I think I’ve found a new smultronställe by this little pond in the park. Spent some time writing here this morning. Now, time to go have lunch with a friend.
