Time Away

Hey everyone, how are you?

From tomorrow I will be spending some time away, so I thought I would blog now, as I may not have much internet when I’m away.


I have been thinking over the time that I have not been blogging and I know that I still want to write and blog, but I don’t think that I can blog daily like I use to. I also do not have as much time for writing fiction as I use to. But since I am going to be away for the rest of this week I am going to try and make some headway on the novel. I have some other things that I need to do at the same time, but it will be nice to change it up from academia to fiction writing, it will help my brain switch off. Plus I do not know how long I am going to be away for and I want to take more than I need to in terms of things to work on.

I have not looked at the novel in maybe six months, I am not sure, but I am constantly thinking about it. I know how the first draft is going to end and my aim for the year is to get a skeleton draft done. This is so I can spend the next year fleshing it out before going onto editing. I am still looking to get this book published and it will be the first book of a trilogy. I know that it is going to take a lot of time and that is why I am looking at years in my plan rather than months. Alongside this I am going to be lecturing and writing academically for publication so that I can apply for a PhD by publication. I have some projects that I am already working on for that.

I am going to also get back into writing poetry and novellas, so there will be more content this year on this blog. Which I am thoroughly looking forward to and I am always reading so I am making sure that the creative side of my brain is being filled. I have just finished “The Outsider” by Stephen King. My aim is to read forty books this year and that will be a mixture of fiction and non-fiction. Also, over the last year I have gotten really in Japanese fiction so I will be reading more of that as well. My long book for the year is “1Q84” trilogy by Haruki Murakami I’m currently about one hundred pages in.

Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
