Updates on Writing and Reading

It’s been a week since I got home. However, the truth is, it’s been one month and one week since I wrote anything. When I say ‘anything’ here, I mean, writing to advance a plot or story that I have been working on. I am not bothered by the pace…I should be, but I’m not in the frame of mind to write and I knew I did the right thing by halting the release of Sifuna on May 26th.

What a way to start a post!

Well, have you ever made a decision that you were solely proud of?

I’ve never taken such a long time writing, editing and releasing a book as much as I have with this book. First, I had an idea, I tossed it about for three months, wrote a chapter or two and deleted it and had so many eBook cover changes that I finally decided to let it breathe!

On reading: I got down to Ready Player One by Ernest Cline because of this awesome conversation-> here. I’ll watch the movie!

Ready Player One by [Cline, Ernest]

I read the book in one sitting. Yes, not because it was as remarkable as the star ratings on Amazon, but because I found the 80’s reference too much to my liking and the writing faltered between utter fascination with unnecessary detailed descriptions. I’ll admit that I’m not a Gamer, so the fascination is lost on me, there were some parts where the writing seemed rather clumsy to me. So, here’s the deal…Spielberg’s got reigns of the movie and I am watching it! Ochieng…let’s toast to this “the movie’s gotta be way better than the book!”

I am still reading The Queen’s Fool by Philippa Gregory and cannot wait to finish reading it and get started on these titles!

Priceless by [Miloszewski, Zygmunt]

So, there you have it…I’ll spend my Saturday reading and maybe drinking tea as I wait for my clothes to dry…I might pick up my pen and go over my drafts sometime next week and see where I go with writing.

Have a great weekend!

  1. Yes. Yes! You are alive after reading it. I thought you would spontaneously burst into flames out of sheer boredom. You said it best, the references were just too many.I’ll try to watch the movie this week. Cheers. Apologies for not getting back sooner.
