So dear writers, are you a shitty-first drafter, or eager re-writer?
I'm sure I'll wake up from this drowsy-dreamlike world, but until I do, here's a wave and a hug from my world spinning parallel to yours.
Have you ever had a similar experience of being in a faraway world of your imagination? Does reading or writing ever put you in this inward spiral? Do you write Inwards or Outwards?
I walked out on the pavements, and also to the Bagan Bookshop (a rather interesting little place with loads of books discarded by foreign tourists selling for a dollar or two each).
Pictured below are the books I found: all of them printed in the 1970's, other than Orwell's book. I read Gore Vidal, and have microwaved all the books now that I'm back: don't want any tiny critters invading my shelves.
What about you? What have you read this new year? What books would you recommend?
Have you been to a literary event recently? Ever listened to a beloved author read? Does the author have the same voice as the book when you read it yourself? Does the Literary or Book Council in your country support literary events like this one?
If you live in Singapore, have you been to Twilight Tales? What sort of literary event do you like the most?
What about you? Does fiction take you outside of you? Does it bring you harmony and rhythm? Do you walk in Beauty?
