De viruscode is een van de prologen van de hitserie De labyrintrenner van James Dashner. Ik had niet zo heel veel met deze serie en toen ik het boek ontving wist ik ook niet helemaal of ik er wel zin in had om nog een verhaal te lezen over Thomas en Teresa. In De viruscode […]

The summer of 1927 might be the height of the Roaring Twenties, but Bonnelyn Parker is more likely to belt out a church hymn than sling drinks at an illicit juice joint. She’s a sharp girl with plans to overcome her family’s poverty, provide for herself, and maybe someday marry her boyfriend, Ro...Read more of this blog post »

Tidak salah memang jika perempuan dinisbatkan sebagai perhiasan dunia. Apalagi kalau mampu melengkapi satu syarat, shalehah.

I KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE HEARD ABOUT ME You say that I am a madman. You say that I am dangerous. You say that I am the one who has been abducting women, slaughtering them, and burying their corpses all around this city for years. You are wrong, because only part of that statement is […]

Evil is a matter of perspective. This is a quality which is extremely relevant to grimdark as it involves making sure even the most reprehensible characters have a point.

I’m gonna tell you something that might not help, but it’s the best I’ve got. When I wrote my first novel, the artist mood swings were incessant. Now that I’m writing my next novel, they’re super rare. The reason why? I learned through experience that it only gets harder.

If I were going to rank writing-related questions from least to greatest, “how do I beat writer’s block?” probably falls quite high on the list, if not at number one.
