Chchchchchanges...


Oddly enough, the new hope is emo is on this very subject. Sort of. Okay, the changes I'm talking about don't have a direct relationship to Kafka, or pizza, or calculators. I'm talking about radical changes to the novel. Radical. Changes. To the whole thing. Which is why Ethel keeps trying to come around and cause trouble. So far the duct tape is holding, but I've sent out for extra rolls, just in case.

(cracking up)...

Okay, if the duct tape is working for you, maybe I ought to rip out a roll, since the same thing seems to be happening to me.

Good luck with yours!

Yep. She sure seems to get around. Thank you both for stopping by and sharing the pain of Ethel.

I totally don't get the emo thing.

M.G. - Think Kyra, if she was way more depressed and overly emotional. And had a healthy dose of faux intellectualism. I wanna be hope. She's my hero.

one of hopes lines bit me in the ass last week: "they don't judge me."

i had to delete that from my current ms. :D :D :D


is ethel trying to get you to change everything, or does she want you to work with what you already have?

These paradigm shifts in fiction are at once exciting, terrifying and frustrating. Usually they're for the best, though.

By the way, this whole "Ethel" thing sounds suspiciously like the last twenty minutes of "Fight Club." Just try not to get into any fistfights with this lady and you should be OK.

PS- I bet you thought I'd never post on here, didn't you?

Anne - same characters, same setting, same murders. Major overhauls include different motive/situation for bad mofo killer and a new character that has to come in at chapter one. Hence the evil Ethel. I understand that she's easily distracted by Jerry Springer re-runs. Unfortunatley I don't have cable. Maybe I can hook her up with YouTube. Moving on to industrial strength duct tape today.

Hey Christian. Welcome to the blogosphere. Ethel has absolutely nothing to do with Fight Club, which you shouldn't even be talking about. Rule One, dude.
