Salam alaikum wbt.
It had been few months since I'm officially known as a novel writer. A writer who wrote about love story/stories - which I find it very amusing as I myself is not in any relationship neither married or is interested to do so, and its been few months since I started my research as a PhD Researcher with the university. I thought I want to stop writing - for the time being - until I'm done with my PhD or at least until 2015, but it seems so empty when I don't write. I feel like as if I'm indebted to God for not sharing what He have lend me with all the others. For all the experience, the thought, what I see and what I hear - so far.
But I should say my life is like rubber meet the road now- busy as a one-armed paper hanger esp lately, and most of the time stuck with all this engineering work, hoping for progress and ended up stressed. But that is life, and I slowly learn how to work like all the English, Swiss, Chinese, Iranian and Greece office mates- who are working together in the research team (I'm a newbie - but nobody consider newbie as an excuse to act professionally and perform).
With the summer - or rather say late spring, at least it is not as stressful as to see the darkness reach us as early as at 4.30 pm during the winter, and at least now, I could see bunch of flowers - tulips, dandelions, daffodils, and etc etc - greeting me while I'm walking home. Even tough Maghrib is now at 9.00 pm ..but I like day longer than night.
I know everyone is waiting for Bab 28 and is absolutely waiting for - Haydar's or Hana's reaction during their second meeting, but I seriously have no heart to publish it here. Seriously. I want the surprise to remain. Just be patient a bit :) and wait until the novel is publish. And yes, I'm done writing it. My aunt (who used to be an English translator for TV3) is doing a proof read - due to grammatical complaint before.
What I can say is, it will be about 72 or + chapters. Seems like I break my own record. Haha. Hope its not gonna be too thick. I hope you guys gonna like the whole 13 Jam A380 storyline! but all in all what gonna happen later will only happen by Allah's will - either it will be liked or else.
I will update it here or in FB once I send the mms to KS ( already told boss about the mms - I promised him to send it by next week) , and once KS told me when it will be published. I hope I will consider doing teaser etc, but I dont feel like doing it. Because. I think 13Jam A380 is a bit different and I want to protect my own idea (I'm not accusing anyone on plagiarism etc but I believe I have the right to do this. Plus, many other authors normally write the whole thing - send mms - when its about to be published - then they publish part of the story in their blog) So just wait. Again. And thank you for your patience. =)
( my own illustration of 13Jam A380
- if u r good at translating abstract painting then u might get the idea of the story)
Thank you guys for you patience. For your keen and interest in the novel. For your never-ending support. For your doa, and for everything.Will surely update about WHEN will it be published once I have got the words from KS.
Loads of Love,
