I haven’t been doing any writing for a while, but today while sitting bored at my desk here in the library, I decided to complete it. I’m now calling it The Jinn and I hope you’ll like it, although I haven’t had time to run a spell check on it and you might notice I made a lot of grammatical errors.
Why did I choose to write about some Arabs from a muslim standpoint? It’s simple — I’m working on a book called The Farce. Here’re two excerpts: excerpt 1, excerpt 2. I’m going to be taking on two strange viewpoints — that of a muslim, and that of a woman.
My protagonist is a muslim woman called Ramat. For the feminine side, I’ve been reading a lot of books on female psychology (I’m sure my colleagues at the library think I need it to successfully ask a girl out!) and I’m drawing on some of my knowledge of Islam from having studied in Northern Nigeria which is predominantly muslim. Let me know what you think. I’m sorry I haven’t built a commenting system into Authware but I should do so hopefully before January.
I’m trying to read hard for my exams starting next week and for the SAT which I’m taking on Saturday. Hopefully, I should be writing more and more in the nearby future.
