We had some light showers this morning and I am happy I got to stay indoors. August has come with its blessings and call for action when it comes to writing.
I did get to read a book I have always wanted to read: A Fort of Nine Towers by Qais Akbar Omar 🧡 and he narratses what it was like growing in Afghanistan, when war broke out, factions increased and what it meant to be on the run in your own home in 389 pages and towards the end he is right. He did bear this grief all his life and he passes it to the reader in such a way that it I couldn’t help but wonder how many times he broke down writing this book. If you could spare a moment, look it up online and buy a copy from whichever retailer you can access.
I am learning to call myself out on writing that needs work and this is because I got to read what I had written so far before submitting it for printing and it fell short of my expectations.
This week, I get to focus on revising that draft and following through on publication and I can’t wait to see how it’d turn out.
That’s all I have in my mind today. Have an awesome week!
