They looked like oranges, peeled like oranges, tasted like oranges and, unfortunately for them, arrived, in Florida, in spaceships that were the size and shape of orange boxes.

Robert Day is on page 349 of 434 of Archform: It's funny that this type of story starts to get exciting so near to the end of the book. Makes you wonder why they just didn't put some exciting stuff near to the beginning too, just to even things out.

Arundhati Roy
“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”
Arundhati Roy, The Cost of Living

“It is only in alert silence that truth can be.”

Jiddu Krishnamurti
“You are this, which does not satisfy, so you want to be that. If there were an understanding of this, would that come into being? Because you do not understand this, you create that, hoping through that to understand or to escape from this.”
Jiddu Krishnamurti, Commentaries on Living: First Series

Albert Einstein
“I believe that Gandhi’s views were the most enlightened of all the political men in our time. We should strive to do things in his spirit: not to use violence in fighting for our cause, but by non-participation in anything you believe is evil.”
Albert Einstein

Robert Day Hallelujah! The floodgates have opened, the constipation is over, the words have flown their coop! I have written my first short story since my schooldays and I feels good! ok, it's probably quite short - 8 pages x 23 lines x 7.5 words per line = about 1380 words, but that's not the point - I have written - yay!

It just came to me while I was reading 102 Ways to Write a Novel: Indispensable Advice for the Writer of Fiction that I know all sorts of things about how a story shouldn't be, so why not just write like that deliberately, in a jokey, kind of self-depreciating manner, without worrying how it comes out, and then at the end of the story I can just, kinda demonstrate that I do know what I'm doing (hopefully); so I did just that.

I sat down at 6am this morning and started writing and it flowed really easily, once I'd decided not to worry how bad it might be; in fact that was the point: to make it bad and break all the rules. Then as I was walking to work, the rest of the story just came to me, and then (naughtily) wrote it down when I was supposed to be working.

I'm really happy now. Wheee!


Little Miss Esoteric Best to you, Robert. :D:D
