I want

Posted by Line Larsen on November 3, 2008

I want to find a word that is perfect, a word that makes you smile whenever you read it. I want to build a sentence, construct it slowly but surely until it is everything you want it to be. I want to add sentences to that sentence, until it becomes a paragraph. A paragraph so breathtaking, you can’t read it without feeling it. I want to keep typing until I have a page that catches you by surprise and makes you want to listen. I want to write a chapter that urges you on and makes you crave for more, and more, until the end. I want to write a novel that leaves you satisfied.

I want to write about the world in a way it cannot ignore.

And then I thought: What is more complex than a story? A personality. Can you describe yourself in a six word sentence? I made an attempt.

“Not normal, but close to average.”
