A room of one’s own
As you can see, my Fazaa simple does not care about my privacy. Stroll right in, Dad. Cast that shadow over my pen and paper. *Sarcasm* This is our beautiful home in Bangkok, Thailand.
Today, I’ma write the opening sentence of my debut novel.
My favorite sentences include (but are not limited to):
“Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins.” – Lolita, Vladimir Nabokov
and of course,
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth.” – The Old Testament, Anonymous
Mine would start off with (Adapted from my best friend, Craig Bright’s Facebook page):
“There’s the right way, the wrong way and the Ploi way, which is just the wrong way but quicker”
Very Alice in Wonderlandish, I hope.
