Book fair haul!

My favourite yearly event has finally arrived: the Gothenburg Book Fair! This is the largest literary event in Scandinavia and the second largest book fair in Europe. I never miss it (in non-pandemic times) and this year was no exception. To await buying more books than I can afford, I have imposed on myself theFortsätt läsa ”Book fair haul!”

A new writing spot

The Swedish summer is painfully short and rainier that in a lot of other places. So, every chance I get to enjoy the sunshine while it last, I take. That’s why I love to sit in the forest, by the sea or in public parks and write under the sun. I thought I knew allFortsätt läsa ”A new writing spot”

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!”

Time moves differently…

in the woods. Oftentimes, I’ll take a long walk in the forest and when I return I’ll feel like three or more hours have passed. But when I look at the clock, I’ll see it’s only been an hour or so. I find this odd, as time usually feels slow when you’re not having aFortsätt läsa ”Time moves differently…”

Mission failed successfully: avocado lime mousse dessert

On the day of Yule Eve, I was at my parents’ house, watching their cats while they’re visiting relatives out of the country. I am one of the few in my family who celebrates Yule (what we still call Christmas, here in Scandinavia) and with my friends celebrating with their own families, I was aFortsätt läsa ”Mission failed successfully: avocado lime mousse dessert”

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…”

By the sea

Today I went and sat by the sea to write for a bit. Then I took a walk on the beach in search of things to put on that altar I’m still working on. I ended up tumbling upon some interesting things.

A Sol’s Day in the Sun

The summer in Sweden is painfully short so it bums me out that I will have to spend most of it at work. I like my job but I prefer being out in the sun. So, I’m making sure to spend so much time as I can in nature on Sundays since it’s the onlyFortsätt läsa ”A Sol’s Day in the Sun”

Finding another ancestral grave

For the coming couple days I’m staying at my parents’ house and watching their pets while they’re away. Since I’m here I thought I’d take the opportunity to walk through the local forest like I used to when I was younger. I wandered for a while and felt a little lost.
