It is finally here. Right there in my hands...
Neil Gaiman latest nove, Anansi Boys. The one I've been waiting for for quite a while. And I can't wait to read it. The first few pages sound promising and I know mr Gaiman wouldn't disappoint. This is the man, after all, who inspired me to become a writer.
I'll try and post a full review of the novel once I had read it.
Progress on my third (or second?!) novel is right on track. Just a couple of days ago, I had passed the 21k mark. So, only two months into writing it, I am almost halfway there, which is, to say the least, both surprising and somewhat of a relief. Taking in mind that QuixotiQ took almost 5 years to complete and that I have already spend just around two years working on Buried, this is quite remarkable! Mind you, this will be the shortest novel I attempt, with a target of about 45k.
It's funny though, why I'm feeling more confident writing Against, even though it perhaps contains some of the most daring and controversial stuff I have come up with yet. The flow of writing it is very satisfying and I am finding that I am in full control of it, contrary to my debut novel. Having said that, I always found it the hardest when it comes to writing the second half of the novel. So I must be in for the tough part now. It's uphill from here on!
Stay tuned my darlings!
