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)

Quotes by Bassey Ikpi  (?)

“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 thought about the way my mind wanders, how I drift through days losing hours, forgetting to remain in my body. How they call me absentminded, forgetful. The way I am mercury spilling over surfaces—solid and liquid, here and not.”
