WELCOME TO THE NATION
Are you ready?
‘My name is Terra Underwood, by the way.’
‘I know, thought you should know anyway.’
‘I’m Kalem.’ A few seconds passed and then, ‘KalemAkuma.’
She couldn’t help but think it was rather fitting.
‘Well, Underwood means ‘wood that is under.’ What exactly it’s under we’ll never know.’
‘Is that meant to be a joke?’
‘Everything I say is meant as a joke.’
She could almost hear him smile, and that brought her own lips to twist upwards. She closed her eyes, feeling suddenly at ease and comfortable.
‘Goodnight, wood that is under.’
Guest Post by the Author
A normal writing day for me is quite simple.
I wake up and make myself a coffee (sometimes I’ll have breakfast, depending on how late it is). I’ll get washed and then I usually read a little bit before actually writing. It really helps me to pick a book up and get in the mood, so I’ll read for half an hour before. Then, I make sure I have something to drink (usually a cup of tea or some more coffee) and sit down to write.
I tend to go through the last chapter or two to refresh my brain and then, ta-chan! I start writing. I don’t follow any kind of planning; I just sit and write whatever comes to me. Of course, there are always a few things I take notes on, important facts I want included, etc.
I write usually until 12 or 13.00 hours, and by then I need to stop. I currently work as a private English teacher, so I spend a few hours before lunch preparing lessons. Then I eat, read a little and off to work! When I get home it’s usually quite late, so I have dinner and then I sit back down in my little office and write a little bit more before bed.
I don’t have a lot of free time to write because of my work, but I do try to write as much as possible whenever I can.
