So I started the blog OMG The Cake Shrinks! in May last year with weekly posts from my project Land Of Cloudberries. The lengthy pieces of prose were not originally meant to be published in the blog format, but in the end I guess it worked out this way too. In a nutshell, it’s a story about a 20-year-old woman looking for her place in the complex cold maze of modern society. At the moment the story is available only in Finnish language. And now, 32 chapters (plus intro) later it’s time to move on and start a whole new story in this remote corner of cyber space.
What to expect of this season? Briefer, more dynamic, to the point texts that surely suit these chaotic times. We’ll start with a short story about a couple having an evening walk in a visibly hostile environment. Then we’ll continue with a bigger one taking place in the U.S. in the midst of the 2020 mayhem. It’ll be reported from the perspectives of three utterly different characters. The nerd. The conspiracy theorist. The yoga teacher. The upcoming project is going to be obviously a “try and see”, as I’m learning to write in English as we’ll go. But that’s in a way always the case when you’re writing something new and exciting, isn’t it? A leap of faith. A sail to the open sea.
