Today, I feel useless. My life appears to have no plot line, no series of magical events, no meaning at the present moment. I have no faith in my writing, my studies, myself. I don’t feel like doing anything apart from reading Norwegian Wood by Murakami. I just want to stay in bed with tea and a good book. Of course, I’d like someone to be in bed with me, talking to me about literature and art and travel, a beautiful distraction. I feel like I can’t write today. I just feel useless.



  1. Yeah, we all have those days. I understand that feeling. It sucks feeling that way, but a lot of the time you aren’t exactly in control. On a side note, the title ‘Norwegian Woods’ sounds interesting. What’s it about?

    1. It’s about memory. From the blurb:

      “When he hears her favourite Beatles song, Toru Watanabe recalls his first love Naoko, the girlfriend of his best friend Kizuki. Immediately he is transported back almost twenty years to his student days in Tokyo, adrift in a world of uneasy friendships, casual sex, passion, loss and desire – to a time when an impetuous young woman named Midori marched into his life and he had to choose between the future and the past.”

      I’ve only heard wonderful things about it so decided to buy it and give it a go! I’ll let you know if it’s any good :)

Tell me what you think!
