“I have a good table by the front for you and your friend, Catherine. A beautiful view of the cathedral.”

Catherine took off her hat and F... Read more of this blog post »

Phil Latham Phil Latham's blog:
Who is your favorite writer? You know, the one whose words just seem to sing? More than that, it appears that he (or she) wrote them effortlessly, as if they poured directly from the brain, through the fingers and onto the page.

Don't you believe that for a moment.

Writing is tough work. Your favor... Read more of this blog post »

لن يبقى الحلم حيث تركته، لقد تغير كثيرا.. أبتعد ربما أو أقترب. كل منا يعرف متاهاته في واقعه ويتقن أساليب ضياعه بها. أخر شئ تسطيع أن تتأمله هو نفسك. صورتك الحالية لن تقترب مهما حدقت بها. أغيب أمام وجهي في المرأة ولا أستطيع تحديد ملامحي بدقة، أنا فقط أرى الزمن! نعم.. الزمن يطل علي.. وجهى […]

I don't plot novels. That is not to say that plotting a novel is a bad thing or that it's the wrong way to write a book. Everyone has their own process and plotting has never been part of mine.

The way that my process works is pretty simple. It usually starts with a little grain of an idea (someti... Read more of this blog post »
