This week I saw a young Chinese woman on the MTR reading Life Without Limits by Nick Vujicic. I've seen people reading this book several times in the last year. Later I saw a woman reading what I thought was called The Reader in You, but I couldn't find it on Amazon so I'm not sure I read the title correctly. Does anyone know what it might be? I saw a Western man reading an English paperback in the shade of The Escalator, but I couldn't see the title. I spotted two people reading in Chinese this week.
My Nanowrimo adventures continued this week with a 12-hour write-athon on Saturday. Writers from around Hong Kong joined in for anything from a few hours to most of the day. I showed up at Kosmo Wellness Cafe in Central at 9:30 am (okay I was a little late), and stayed there writing until 9 pm. I took breaks for lunch and dinner, and during one of those breaks I explored the carnival in LKF just outside the coffee shop (pictured above). I wrote about 5,500 words that day, bringing my total word count to 20,004, plus I used the opportunity to do some editing on a friend's manuscript when I needed a break.
How is your writing going this week? Have you spotted any books (or writers) lately?
