Thoughts on KILLING COMMENDATORE by Murakami 

Last night I finished KILLING COMMENDATORE by Haruki Murakami. 

It’s only taken me a full year to finish it. 

Mind you it is almost 800 pages, but still I’m not that slow at reading. For some reason I liked reading it in the h...

I spent today reading my own book. I was re-familiarising myself with the "new" novel, after having spent some time on the "old" novel. It was a pleasant experience, and though every page is scribbled with yellow "CHANGE THIS" ink, I felt that relief, that soft feeling...

April 27, 2019

I woke up this Saturday morning thinking of my first novel. It’s a (as far as I can remember) a 190.000 word tome about an Icelandic woman who, in the process of moving back to Iceland, looses her name and the journey she needs to take to get it back sets her on a stra...

20th of January 2019

It’s 2019 and though my world looks nothing like that of Blade Runner I still feel like I’ve stepped into the future, which I guess I did one minute at a time. I was recently in a local mall and I found it half empty, some of the stores that were th...

Friends of mine have been reminding me of the magic in the world this year. Through the year they have taken time to remind me that the world is almost as exciting as it was while we still had white areas on our maps and didn’t know if the Kraken existed.
