Another poster recently said "What do you do when the character is in risk of undoing the plot or the consistency of genre without killing their vitality?"


I don't constrain myself with genre or plot. I'm a Journey without clear Destination person (as destinations are relative and journeys are here for us now).

If I did genre, I'd pervert it a bit, maybe add mythic and other symbolic asides. Like "Erasers" by Robbe-Grillet (turned a Mystery into vaguely Oedipal, obsessive story), or "Passing Time" by Michel Butor (terribly boring, but unusual).

also terribly boring ;)
