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.

They could cry an ocean and no one would wipe themselves off with a scowl and tell them to stop it, to pull themselves together, to get on with it.

Don’t mind me!

Posted by Line Larsen on October 22, 2008

Don’t mind me, I am just eavesdropping. I am just listening in, while you talk to your friend or lover or ex-husband. I just want to watch you while you pick your child up, try to pay attention to the way your hair moves and the look on your face. Do you mind? Let me see how you walk. Maybe you have a special style of moving your feet, unknown to me to this day. Maybe you have a smile worth a thousand words. I need to record it!

Limitations of personality

Posted by Line Larsen on October 21, 2008

I wonder if I have the potential to write just about anything. Could I compose the most tear-inducing romance novel if I just applied myself and practiced every day? Can I write horror? Or beautiful poetry? Or a great American novel?
