When I was back at home, enjoying the longest holidays, I was pretty sure that no matter how busy I were, I’ll always find time to write. Little did I know how Time can wash you away like a wave and you’re no more than a small twig bobbing up and down those waves.
I did write a few posts since coming here, but as more and more time passes, Work+Life seem to suck me in. Suddenly, there are more important things to do other than writing.
However, I am about to shift to a (more) permanent accommodation in one or two days. Hopefully, once I am completely settled in and fallen into a regular pattern, I will find time to write regularly. The one good thing to this is that I will have a lot of material to write about.
Even though I am not being able to write as much as I would like to, I am still connected to writing in other ways. Today, I wrote a review on Amazon for Chrissy Lessey’s The Hunted, the second book in the Crystal Coast series. The Hunted released on October 15th on Kindle. I had received the Advanced Reader Copy from the author. I loved the plot and the characters but what I love most about authors of fantasy genre is their amazing capability to create believable fictional worlds. Also, this was the first time I read about autism in a story. Tthe sharp images that Chrissy created in this book with a five-year old autistic child will stay with me for a long time. There were few lazy adjectives and some over-used words, but the story was engaging from beginning to end. If fantasy is your thing, do give this author a try.
I am about 50 pages through The God of Small Things. It is unlike any book I have read so far. The very first chapter threw me into the private life of a family, without giving much background info. It was distracting at first. But I am getting used to the author’s voice now. The best thing about the Roy’s writing style is the unusual adjectives. They are so fresh, new and never-heard-before.
