Do you keep a “good idea” notebook? I do. I’m not sure why because I so rarely acts on these ideas. But I will. So they’re still mine. You can’t use these ideas for your own work. Oh don’t you dare. I mean it.
My (as-of-now) unwritten books:
A religion comprised entirely of mumbles.
A place where “reality” only exists in shadows.
A book of unobservable phenomenas.
A mix of hard and soft within the same text, both flowy and structured.
Use bewilderment to resolve the unresolvable.
Bacteria in the form of August.
A raving lunatic who is always completely calm.
An empire without meaning.
Feminine pollution activists and their love lives.
An imaginary history based on an imaginary time.
A reality we can neither see nor describe, but existence we may deduce.
A woman’s brother dies. She goes to each of his past lovers and tells her, “You were the love of his life,” even though it is a lie.
Soldier goes up to a corpse and explains how war is complicated.
