Apologies and Year of Classics

As you may or may not have noticed, I blogged for two days and then stopped for a week or two. I do very much apopogise for that, as I’ve had some technical difficulties. Hopefully, I will be able to update this blog a few times a week from now on.

Besides my computer troubles, I have decided that, since I’m a bit behind on my classic literature, I am going to read as many classic novels and stories as I can get my greedy hands on. I’ll read a few this year (I’ve already borrowed Jane Eyre and The Wind in the Willows from my library) but I’ll leave majority of them for 2014, which shall be my Year of Classic Literature.

Reading Schedule

Time to neaten up the blog, now that all those poems and short stories are out of the way!

here are the next few books I’m planning to read. As I do, I might slip another in somewhere along the way, but here’s my basic plan:

Words:

Words are magical;

They create wonder in life.

Worlds are made from them.

Music Soothes the Savage Beast

Music soothes the savage beast

Inside me.

Music calms the boiling blood

Within me.

Shadows

Shadows slither ‘cross the floor,

Shadows reach around the door.

Shadows fill the nighttime sky,

Shadows creep to where I lie.

Plans

As you may have noticed, I just posted a few of the short stories I’ve written. Some aren’t great, I know, but I like them enough to share all the same.

I’ll also be posting a couple of poems soon. I’m not sure if I’ll do it later today or tomorrow, but they’ll show up soon, too.

Apart from spammy posts, I’m currently reading the thriller novel, What to Do When Someone Dies, by Nicci French. I am quite enjoying it, and will probably review it here, as I will probably review most, if not all, of the books I’m going to read in the future.

I have a couple of ideas of what I’m going to post in the near future, such a favourite book covers post, or a list of the best and/or worst film and television adaptions of books I’ve read.

But until then, I hope you take the time to enjoy my short stories. 🙂
