Plans During Christmas

It has been a little while since I have posted here, but that is for a valid reason.

I have a disease for writing, but it is a disease that you want to get contaminated with. I have literally been writing the third and last novel of The Absolutely Fine Trilogy, an undertaking that consumed me to the point that that was all that I could think about. Writing this particular novel was an undertaking that was unimaginable. It is a monumental piece, possibly the magnum opus of the three. For those who are wondering, I have already released the third book to the trilogy, and I couldn’t believe I accomplished the task of publishing three books this year. That is insane! Now, don’t think that it only took me one month to make the third book. I have already had a good chunk of the third book finished before I published the second. I personally don’t keep track of how long I write my books, so I can’t really tell you the whole duration–but I am just glad to cross the finish line.

Currently, I am reading one of the most important and influential works in the history of literature: Ulysses by James Joyce. I am currently a third of the way through and am loving it to death, so much so that I would classify it as the book of the year for me. If you actually check the back of the third book, you would realize that I made a reference to him. Why? Well, you are going to have to read the book to find out.

Also, as a news update, I am actually looking forward to making a new Youtube Channel where I review very unique books while also advertising my series even more. This idea hit me when I was reading Ulysses. After getting through a good chunk of it, I think it would be a great idea to have that book as the first review on the Youtube Channel. I’m excited for that.

During Christmas, I am really planning on reading a lot! That is really the life of a writer, but that is also how one gets better. If you are wondering what my reading list is, here it is:

Ulysses by James Joyce

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey

The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan

A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole

The Secret History by Donna Tartt

The Sea Wolf by Jack London

Fairy Tale by Stephen King

This is only the first seven that are down the line. I am looking forward to all of them. I personally am not a person that asks a lot during Christmas. I am mostly thankful for the fact that I have a bright mind and bright family with me, which is not a privilege that some people have in this world. Okay . . . well, there are bright people in this world . . . but you know what I mean.

I wish you all a Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas!
