It's Saturday morning already. My husband is going to meet his client. My little daughter and I are having rest in home. She is playing in her bedroom and I'm resting my feet on the couch and going online with my notebook to check emails and online writing course blogs and Yahoo Groups. Everything is fine and I hope these courses will end successfully. Fiction class will end soon next week and the mentor will add a free-week of additional module to all students. I gave her permition and the students seemed happy to get it. They are now preparing their first chapter for their novel + its synopsis. I think they are excited to write it.
One of the the students is writing the story like Rowling version. I saw she is very talented to write a fiction story like that. I will challenge her to finish her novel and send it to an Indonesia publisher. Who knows? Probably a new JK Rowling from Indonesia will be born one day soon . . . Then I would be proud of her, especially she is one of graduated students from the online writing course that I'm leading. Also I'm planning to challenge all of them, including mentor and myself to finish our novels by the end of this year. (I think it's hard for me since I have full time job, he he he . . . Well, who knows? Maybe I'm able to finish it or I would be the last person who will finish writing our novels. I will see then . . .)
Talking about novel. I still have 8 books (softcover) of Enthusiasm in home. If anybody is interested to order from me, please, let me know. You will get my autograph and bookmark. If you would like to buy directly online via Paypal, you may visit my online Media Kit, enter and go to "Buy".
Right now Enthusiasm is till in the editing process for Indonesian version. That was I heard from the Director of an Indonesia publisher last month who bought my book right. I hope all Indonesian readers who are waiting for, please, be patient. It will take several months to edit and prepare everything before that book is published. They would also plan the marketing strategy for this book. I hope everything will go smoothly and it will be welcomed well in my homeland.
Last month I tried to copy and paste my whole first chapter of Enthusiasm to an online system and I got its result: I WRITE LIKE VLADIMIR NABOKOV. That is a cool website. It is fun to know about a similar things of mine comparing with other famous writer.
Who is Vladimir Nabokov? According to Wikipedia, he was a multilingual Russian-American novelist and short story writer. Nabokov wrote his first nine novels in Russian, then rose to international prominence as a master English prose stylist. He also made contributions to entomology and had an interest in chess problems.
Nabokov's Lolita (1955) is frequently cited as among his most important novels and is his most widely known, exhibiting the love of intricate word play and synesthetic detail that characterised all his works. The novel was ranked at #4 in the list of the Modern Library 100 Best Novels. His memoir, Speak, Memory, was listed #8 on the Modern Library nonfiction list.
