Zoom! What was that? That was April!

Now I realized doing Y for Yay and then Z for Zoom might seem to be a bit lazy. But honestly though, hasn’t April just zoomed by? I sure don’t know where it went! And what a month it’s been! A few minutes ago I validated my Camp NaNoWriMo word count (just above 31k), so I am now an official winner Continue reading Zoom! What was that? That was April!


Today’s blog post is sponsored by the word yay! There are a lot of thing in life one might go yay about, but tonight I’m going yay because I just reached my 30k word goal for Camp NaNoWriMo. I still have a few paragraphs to write before the story is entirely done, but since it’s quite late here that can Continue reading Yaaaaay!

X is for Xena, naturally!

To be totally honest I don’t know that many words that begin with X, and the only one that really came to mind was: Xena! Xena (as in the warrior princess, not the dwarf planet currently known as Eris) was my first real TV crush and remains one of my major on-screen heartthrobs. I mean, she’s hot, she’s funny, she Continue reading X is for Xena, naturally!

Worldbuilding – What do I need to Know?

I admire those writers who have outlined the entire histories of the worlds their stories take place in, who can describe every culture present in detail and even had the wildlife and geography of their entire world planned out. I am not one of those writers. I used to think that I would be, but eventually I’ve come to realize Continue reading Worldbuilding – What do I need to Know?

V is for Vocabulary

Vocabularies are funny things. In Swedish, vocabulary is called ordförråd which literally means “word stockpile” or “word storage” so I always imagine a vocabulary being a sort of large cupboard that you put words into. With my Arabic studies, vocabulary has always been my biggest problem (other than, you know, actually having the guts to speak). I’ve had no problems with Continue reading V is for Vocabulary

Undergrad For Life

Okay, maybe “for life” is a bit of an exaggeration, but I have been an Undergrad for quite a while now. It’s nearly 5 years since I started doing Arabic, and it’ll be at least one more year until I get my Bachelor’s Degree. That’s twice as long as it “should” take, but I don’t mind. The main reason why I’m Continue reading Undergrad For Life

Teddies, Teddies everywhere

I’ve always had a thing for teddies. My favorite teddy was given to me when I was only a couple of weeks old and was my constant companion throughout my childhood. His name is Nalle (which is Swedish for teddy) and these days he lives on my bedside table. He used to be blond, with longer fur and a silky ribbon Continue reading Teddies, Teddies everywhere

Sister, Soulmate, Star

When I was in primary school, there was a girl who I greatly admired. She was wonderful: pretty, sweet, funny, she could sing and draw just like from a Disney movie and she had all the coolest toys! I wanted to play with her all the time. Maybe even a bit more often than that. We drifted apart for a few years Continue reading Sister, Soulmate, Star


It’s funny how sometimes you feel tired at the strangest moments. I’ve just had ten days off work, so you’d think I’d be well rested and ready to rumble. But in fact, I’ve been very tired for the last few days, and lagging behind a bit on my writing. I’m not too worried about that, I’m sure I’ll meet my Continue reading Rest

Quite Interesting!

I had a bit of trouble picking a topic for today. I couldn’t think of a writing topic beginning with Q, and I also don’t have any hobbies beginning with Q. So instead, I though I’d tell you about this awesome TV show called QI (short for Quite Interesting). It’s hosted by Stephen Fry and is basically a trivia game Continue reading Quite Interesting!
