For a short time I am allowing myself to call myself a writer.*
As it is snowing, I am stuck indoors (Ich hasse Schnee) and I want to do something constructive. So, as I have decided that my hobby is writing and it is not something I do regularly enough, today is the day to start to plan something wonderful.
I started a book and, against everything that any writer has ever said to me, I’m not going to finish it. I don’t like it. I wouldn’t pick it up to read it myself. It is not the genre of writing I want to write. It can’t be amusing and it isn’t science fiction.
In short, it’s my bloody hobby and I will do what I want.
I have ideas for science fiction all the time and they need to be explored more. It is the genre I am drawn to more than anything. So, that’s what I am doing today. Exploring some more ideas and trying to shape them into a story or even a book.
Anyway, I am also motoring through Carter Beats the Devil. Which is proving to be another excellent book.
*Disclaimer: This post is not a procrastination. I have already written today and started to plan the rest of the story.
