I think I’m going to drop The Book That Wouldn’t Burn in the end. It’s more than 1/3 and I can still only say that it’s about running around a library. I’m just not invested enough to spend two more weeks listening to this. That baby is THICK. And it’s sad because the book has really good reviews on goodreads. Maybe people just like reading about libraries or something. I need a little more than that. I think I’ll pick up something non-fiction next. The Little Thieves didn’t grab me either but that one is short so I might still finish it. I’m barely in 10% so there’s still a good chance I’ll get sucked in and the style is quite entertaining.
Apart from that, not much is going on. I have some family drama happening in the background and it’s wearing me down. I’m not sure how I’d feel if I were still in Poland, watching it all play out from up close. Sometimes I’m glad I’m so far away, able to pretend that some things aren’t happening, didn’t happen. Wake up not remembering, because I haven’t even seen it.
I keep thinking of making some illustrations but I can’t find the time. My writing workshop had ended last week but I put all my enthusiasm into editing my next book, so I’m not sure when I’ll actually draw anything. I thought the rainy season will come and I’ll be forced to stay at home but it’s actually hot and sunny? Not going to complain about that one too much… I’m editing furiously because my writing confidence is on the bottom of the ocean right now so I want to finish that book and send it to people and hear some real feedback instead of imagining it (because I obviously imagine the worst possible feedback and just make myself miserable). The Mind Drummer is dead, I think. According to Reddit’s wisdom, 120k words is nowadays way too long for YA fiction. A white woman writing about a jungle is also a big no-no. So instead of mangling this story, I’ll just focus on the next one.
Sorry for not so cheerful note hah Hopefully you can still enjoy the comic! See you next week!
