It’s ISWG day! Every month the ISWG asks a question for writers and this time it’s “Has your writing ever taken you by surprise? For example, a positive and belated response to a submission you’d forgotten about or an ending you never saw coming?”
My answer? Well, I started writing non-fiction for college magazines. My first articles for the Statistics and Zoology magazines were too technical but (*surprise*) actually gave me an editorial internship at a Youth Magazine.
In terms of stories, I’ve actually been surprised to get responses on some posts that many found them relatable.
Just finished ‘Made in Japan’ by Akio Morita. It’s an autobiography of one of the founders of Sony, a popular Japanese company. The book also talks about the differences in American and Japanese culture, economic systems, trade laws, markets and more.
Have started ‘Tell Tale’ by Jeffrey Archer. It’s a book of short stories.
Well, I spent the last month chilling, daydreaming, reading and trying to make comics (The last one didn’t exactly work out, at least the drawing part).
