I will write everyday and write how many words I made during that day to keep track of it all. I was inspired after Nonowrimo. I really think 2013 will be a good yer of writing for me :)
 
 

The Fjällbacka Murders


This is my 100th entry! :)

Some days ago I just had to watch Camilla Läckbergs "Fjällbacka murders" based on her novels. I have some of her novels but never read any of them until after I watch the first movie in the serie. I really thought it was awesome and exiting as i tried to figure out who the murder was. I know she has gotten much critisism about her Tv adaption but I didn´t care. I wanted to make my own opinion. I loved it!. After watching the first movie I know reading her novel "Tyskungen" and I really imagine Erica and Patrick and all the characters after whatching the first movie. I think that camilla writes in a easy language and it´s easy to follow the characters and the plot.

 
*Sofia Zouagui
*Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum
I like the Character Erica Falck who is played by Claudia Galli Concha. I really think she resembles Camilla Läckberg a little bit. And the actor who played Ericas sister Anna really looked as she could be her little sister. She was my favorite character. All I could think of as I watched the first movie was how she reminded me of Lady Antebellums singer Hillary Scott Tyrell. Thats what I told myself several times during the movie. I think they have similar eyes.



 Well... I am definitely going to watch the other movie too. Camilla Läckberg is without a doubt Swedens Agatha Christie of writing. Crime novels have never been my cup of tea but her I like. And as a writer myself I can´t help but analyzing the plot.
 
 
*None of the pictures are mine. I found them on the internet. All right goes the the owners.

Untold Story

by Monica Ali. Thats one of the books I want for Christmas. I just wish I had one of them owls like Harry Potter had. So it can get me that book and fly it over here to me.

I just had to read the tagline and I was hooked. So intresting and I want to read it now!
Monica Ali´s - Untold Story
What if Princess Diana hadn’t died?
 
Diana’s life and marriage were both fairy tale and nightmare. Adored by millions, in her personal life she suffered heartbreak and betrayal. Within a life of privilege, she frequently felt trapped and alone. Constrained by protocol and precedent, she refused to follow the rules.
Untold Story takes the life of the world’s most famous woman as a point of departure, examining the past and imagining a future. The fictional princess who is the novel’s heroine is at breaking point and, believing that the Establishment is plotting her assassination, she makes an irrevocable decision: to stage her own death and begin a new life under an assumed identity.
After a period of intense upheaval, Lydia (as she is known) settles in small town America and establishes a fragile peace. It is threatened by thoughts of what she has lost: not the glamour and glitz of royalty but that which is most precious – her children. She is, at least, safe in the knowledge
- having altered her appearance and ten years after her ‘death’ - that her secret will never be uncovered.
But then a chance encounter with a member of the paparazzi robs her of that certainty. Will he recognise her? Should she flee or remain calm? Is there anyone she can trust and turn to, or will she inevitably be betrayed?
Untold Story is a novel about family and friendship, intrigue and obsession, the meaning of identity, and the peculiar calamity of fame.

I think im might dream about babies

tonight, that is after several hours of researching every week of a pregnancy. Just so I better can understand and write about it. Now I just have to plan it in into the plotline of SURFING COWBOYS. I guess and know  I´ll write on my novel tomorrow.

But I have come to know that one of the characters is going to have a very important roll and I really didn´t know about that from the beginning. That is why it´s so fun to write.

Speaking of babies. I am a proud Preemie. I was born 3 months premature in the 27th week, I was 525 gram & 30 cm tall.

A picture and two minutes ago...

 That was all it took and just like that I had scribbled down a new novel story. I have so many of them and it keeps getting more and more of them. I have a map full of stories for the future.
 
I love to visit harlequin. com just to look at the wonderful covers that gives me inspiration and of course read about all the books. But everytime I just take one glance of a cover and just like that I have a story of my of in my head.
 
It´s just the simplest things. A picture, lyrics from a song or just about anything and I have a brand new story.  
 
In this case it was this book cover that triggered my inspiration and fantasy...
 
The Rancher and the Schoolteacher - Judith Bowen
 
Beautiful cover isn´it? I bet her book is awesome too it´s seems intresting.

What I have learned from NaNoWriMo...

Is that anyone can be a writer and all aspiring authors out in the world coming together during this month every year is so amazing.

One dream and one goal

I think it´s so cool to say that "Im in this contest. Im going to write 50.000 words in a month". And it´s so powerful to know that there are so many people all over the world who really writes just like me trying to reach that goal.

Its a wonderful project and contest were you can meet, people from all places and from all walks of life. I wish I could have got to know more friends during this months but I was just to busy to write.

I learned that to have a deadline like that is so good. And it´s fun to watch your wordcount going up reaching closer and closer to 50K.

To have an outline and been doing your research before Nano begings is even better.

On November 30th the deadline date. I happend to get to quit workd early. I had the plan all worked out. Write every minute of it. But somehow i was just to tired and sleept away 5 hours!! I woke up and had only an hour to write and I gave it my all.

As for my story. It was so fun watching it grow as I got to know my charachters and to write every day spurrs me to really continue. So If I can pretend it´s still November it would be great. Perhaps I get my 50 K during this month. But I almost got half way trough it. And It´s much better than last year. perhaps November 2013 is my year.

They say 3dr times the charm!
