Writing as if I have something to say.

Arguing with the nihilists

Posted by Line Larsen on October 20, 2008

The nihilists in this little rant are my bunch of reject characters from my first and only novel, failed as it was. They have started arguing with me.

See, I had a plan. I was going to strip the novel to the bone and turn it into a short story instead, then build on my half finished short story collection. I do tend to think in short terms, thus it ought to fit me well. I was quite happy with this arrangement, ready to dive back in and be the best I can be or whatever. However, they wanted it differently. They are adding to the story in my head, not subtracting. Such rebels! Whenever I take away, they pile on top twice as much.

It looks I am back to attempting to make it into a half-decent novel, whether I want to or not.
