I have a few ideas for more books but, right now, I’m focused on the launch of I’M TELLING THE TRUTH BUT I’M LYING on August 20th. I just recorded the audiobook and I love it! I’m so excited to hear what people think of the book and the audiobook. It’s a pretty amazing time and I just want to enjoy it. (less)

What I do is set a timer for five-ten minutes and give myself permission to write whatever is on the top of my head—even if I’m just writing about the fact that I can’t write. Sooner or later, I will either, locate the source of the block or I will find one useful line, thought or idea. However, not actively writing is good to. Go do something else and you’ll be surprised how your brain relaxes and an idea pops up while you’re doing something else. (less)

Bassey and 6 other people liked Eeva's review of The Regulars:
The Regulars by Georgia Clark
"DNFed at 17%
I wish I could give this book zero stars. Or negative bazillion of stars.
It's the worst book I've read this year, and I''ve been reading some pretty shitty books, mind you.

The idea of the plot was very interesting and I was excited to rea" Read more of this review »

"I must have missed something here. I've never read a book that has inspired such a bad review and I'm going to try and keep my emotions in check.

“Because I know how that dog-eared page persists and insists you return to it. I know how the brain and the heart and the spirit fight daily to stay in the book and not write themselves out of the story. I know. I know. I know.”
Bassey Ikpi, I'm Telling the Truth, but I'm Lying: Essays

“ANXIETY IS ITS OWN creature. Anxiety asks me to focus on the terrible things I’ve done. The people I’ve hurt. The promises I’ve broken. Anxiety tells me to make a list. Mistakes. Regrets. Lies. A litany of shortcomings, a coil tightened, ready to spring.”
Bassey Ikpi, I'm Telling the Truth, but I'm Lying: Essays

“I give them the suggestion Allow yourself morning. I tell them it means that today may have been a rolling ball of anxiety and trembling, a face wet and slick with tears, but if you can get to morning, if you can allow yourself a new day to encourage a change, then you can get through it. Allow yourself morning.”
