    Empress, centuries ago you read the draft of a novel which is finally coming out with Damnation Books, I'm mentioning you in acknowledgments as Empress of the Universe, haha. I'll send over a copy when it's published, should be around June, if you ever give an email where I can send it:) Thanks again for the encouragement back then, I really needed it.

  • I haven't seen you ever since forever, but thanx for beeing one of my first reviewers and followers. Somehow, you made me feel sort of welcome. So yup, just let you know that.

  • Best. avvie. ever! Tom Felton is just... there are no words! :)

    empressoftheuniverse I love yours as well. And I know, I can't wait to see him as something other than Draco Malfoy.

  • Hi there empressoftheuniverse :) Just filling you in on some things about that novel I started planning.

    I have an official name for this novel. It is called The Nation's Slaughterhouse. Like my other novel, Pornography Kiss, it is intended to have a critical message carrying within the words. Even the title itself is meant to grab your attention. For this novel so far, I have been influenced by writers like William Burroughs and JG Ballard, and influenced by albums like The Holy Bible (Manic Street Preachers) and Unknown Pleasures (Joy Division). If you haven't heard these albums, I recommend them.

    I have changed the preface entirely, from the kids shooting up a school to politicians talking around a table in a cafe. I have decided to change the preface because I feel it sets the main message of the novel in full swing, and I hope it stays that way. I may post it on the site. BTW I am British, so when I mention a political party it is a British one, like Labour.

    PART ONE: The first part of the novel is called Temptation. It is in the point of view of a rich, upper class business man who spends a holiday in a small mining town. It is there where he gradually goes insane, but I have yet to fully develop that idea. Perhaps he goes insane because the people are different? The message of this part is that people who come from an upper class background (e.g. Conservatives) do not understand ordinary working lives very well.

    PART TWO: This part is called House Of Knives. It is set in a POW camp during the war of Vietnam. However, instead of being in the point of view of the soldier being captured and tortured, it is in the perspective of the person doing the torturing. Despite the fact that the character does this horrible job, he remains optimistic throughout, therefore creating irony. The main message of this part is how war changes people's minds and makes them become different people.

    PART THREE: The final part is called Corporate Whore. It is in the point of view of a prostitute, and her view of society's portrayal of prostitutes. She is a client for a pimp (of course) and is physically abused alot. However, one night, she and all of the other clients spark off a revolt against the pimp. They torture him and- dare I say it- take turns to fuck him with a strap-on. The main message of this part is that prostitues are humans too. They can protest and have all the human rights they are being denied.

    So, hope to here back from you.

    empressoftheuniverse All of your ideas are brilliant. A few things I would say are: I love the idea of part one, for part two make sure that there are hints of historical context without it being a history lesson: I for one could never write that because I don't know anything about the war in Vietnam. Part three started out as really tired but the ending sounds really surprising, which means your readers will probably find it surprising. It's good that you know the main message but don't smack the reader over the head with it-- although you seem to be pretty good at subtlty.
    Go forth and write it.
