Little Things 40 : A writer

October 04, 2012

I keep on reading The Malay Male by Amir Hafizi because he reminds me of Neil Gaiman. Although I have never read any Gaiman's book so I can't comment on his writing, but I watched several movies made by him. Still, I can't make any jugdement based on his movies. To comment on his writings, I need to read his works - which until this day, I haven't. 

I guess I don't want to spoil my expectation, he is one of the US famous writer and I love almost all his quotations and the inspiring commencement speech he gave at a university early this year. So I put him on my list, and one day when I am ready, I will read his book. Expectations are odd things that can lead to frustrations. And I really don't want to dislike him.

Back to Amir's blog. 
I guess other than seeing Gaiman in his blog,  I love his bluntness and the fact that he is quite straight-forward in his writing. By the way he writes, I know he speaks his mind out. Bonus, he writes non-stop, when I wake up in the morning, there will be several posts in my +bloglovin' list. If that is not passion, I don't know what it is. I envy him being so outspoken, a trait I failed to have. 

Knowing my readers are mostly young adults, I don't recommend you to read his blog. It is just something I want to share, on pursuing passion and writing. Whether you are in any creative field, with efforts, you can achieve great things in life.

For his efforts and courage, he deserves to be known and read.

  1. Kak Azreen, you misspelled the blog's name, it's The Malay Male, not The Malay Mail hehehe. Btw thank you for sharing :)

  2. Aha, thanks Balqis for mentioning,
    I've corrected it :D

  3. read amirhafizi a few years ago n didn't like. a bit too vulgar to my taste.

    neil gaiman on the contrary is a mix. I like stardust but hated american gods. but his work with terry pratchet was ok.

  4. I read Neil's Coraline and it was nice.
    By nice I mean, someday when I have kid/kids, I'll read the book to them.
