...is a serial novel I'm writing while my children sleep...
well that sounds ominous! but couldn't get the link working - will try again later. xxxx
Yeah, it is interesting, however I don't think I've got it working as a link (i'm still learning how to do this) so you'll have to cut and paste - sorry... How do you get hyperlinks?
OK, how did you do that? (and new chapter will be forthcoming if toby decides he's going to sleep this arvo!)
hey, thanks Robert! for some reason the cutnpaste wasn't working for me but that did. Lucy to do that you have to go [a href="stick the address in here"]Write the text you want to show up as the link here [/a].Like that, only you replace those square brackets with pointy ones <>. complex, eh? as for the article, I think he was kind of joking but I wanted him to end up saying that in the end the point of fiction is not portraiture - that any portraiture is an incidental ingredient - but maybe he was saying that in a light-hearted way.xxxx
I actually think he ended up being relatively serious - in that he was going to live on as a character in a book (tho somewhat warped in appearance!), that writers were bower-birds collecting life to make fiction. While the ideas aren't new to us and the tone was light, I thought he came to the conclusion that fiction changes life? L xx
PS, I think I have links working with Robert's help, let me know if they work for you now...
