LOVE! It's the best one.

I've been hovering for a while but not posted. I write stuff. At the moment I'm writing my second novel. I have 8 days to finish it. I'm just starting the search for an agent - bit scary.

Other writing things I do include interviewing Stephen Fry (I only did it once but it rocked) and writing a blog about my journey to become a novelist, afford the heating bill and keep chugging along despite being a Pov. I'd love it if you'd check it out and love it even more if Stephen did but from what I understand, his life has become very twittersome and other people's blogs may be a little old school for him now. Anyway, for those of you with an interest, the blog address is:

Look forward to hearing what idea you'd be.

Welcome R.W.! I am insanely jealous that you got to interview Stephen.

Interesting question about being an idea. It is entirely too early in the morning for me to think of an answer, but I'll get back to you on that.

Frivolity

The only way is forward. Now where's the bar?

just to fuck with you - exisistentialism

Intriguing... so you'd be inspired by Kierkegaard's philosophy:

'the thing is to find a truth which is true for me, to find the idea for which I can live and die.'

Tricky that one... you'd have to find an idea to live and die for, die for it and then come back as it. Problem is that the concept of 'dying' for the idea would be reduced somewhat by the knowledge that you would again live for it - and because of it - in a kind of live-die-live sandwich. Is that a problem or not? Hmmm. You know, I don't know.

Maybe if you came back as the idea you'd lived and died for it would be so great you'd want to come back as it again but you wouldn't be able to as you'd just be an idea not a human thinking an idea and wouldn't that mess with the nub of your existentialist notions?

See told you it was a tricky one!

But why would it be reduced if I came back as it - if i was an idea I would have no ideals!

I'd also like to come back as reason. Sometimes I'm quite unreasonable, or so I've been told.

Hedonism. After all if you can't have fun what's the point in coming back at all?
