Chapter 22 – the rant

15 09 2008

This is basically a more relaxed take on the events of the previous chapter, now that Johnny has calmed down and had time to reflect on the attempted break in.  I think it’s important to note that Johnny’s attack on the burglar wasn’t so much an act of bravery or heroism as a spur-of-the-moment action which he now regrets.

i don’t care what you say, i’m convinced i’m your muse. your character starts school in a new place – i started my frist job. your character was nearly involved in a life-threatening situation – i nearly got hit by a brick by some crazy idiot. your character was stalked on his blog – well, i had a pretty unpleasant on my blog recently too.

wow, me, a muse! i’m just honoured. first, i want to thank my mom, my dad…

If you start calling yourself a “muse” you’ll muddle me no end!

I swear the burglary scene has been in the works from the very beginning! Unless… what if everything I plan for the story ends up somehow affecting you?

Oh, no, now I’m scared of what will happen if I make anything worse happen to any of the characters!

Hey! How can sulz be your muse? I’M the muse! MeMeMe! Well, OK, I am just one muse, not THE muse, and sulz does have some muse-like qualities.
She and Johnny are living parallel lives! spooky!
Interesting that Johnny now regrets his apparent bravery. Hmmm {muses} “what does this mean in the scheme of things?”

😮 i never thought i might actually be living what johnny is going through – i’m the realistic manifestation of whatever johnny goes through??

bobby, please don’t tell me you plan to kill this character anytime soon. and i hope johnny will get some lurve. maybe it’ll rub off me too, haha!

@ museditions: You’re doing a lot of musing, I see. Well, there are nine muses, aren’t there, so maybe you’re both muses?

I think this chapter was necessary for that reason: it shows how Johnny thinks.

@ sulz: The worrying thing is, it’s not only Johnny. Megan was the one who started school in a new place, and it was Bradley who mentioned a stalker.

That’s a pretty spooky thought. Maybe we should see if the next few chapters affect your life before jumping to conclusions. Until then, I’d best treat the characters with care!

I demand a glossary!

OK, I could probably do that. What words are the problem? I didn’t use any made-up words in this chapter.

Well I wasn’t thinking of words so much [although non-Brits might like] but the different time zones and worlds and who inhabits where and why did I get the idea that Megan and Clouds are billowing up my skirt again were the same people? [maybe living parallel lives]-or would that spoil the whole thing?
Don’t take too much notice of me, I enjoy being confused.🙂

Not even my non-story posts are free from Brit words! The characters are English, so they live in a GMT timezone. Megan and CloudsAreGatheringOverMe are the same person; Megan is her real name, but she likes to keep that secret and blogs as CloudsAreGatheringOverMe.

I may put up a glossary in future, but if you don’t mind I think I’d better wait until the plot has progressed a bit more, because there isn’t a lot I can say at this stage.

I haven’t been trying to confuse you, honest! As long as you’re happy, I guess that’s OK…🙂

I am happy, sorry to heckle you, did everyone else know about clouds? I’m not quite so confused as I thought I was. No I’m just waiting for the romance to start now. I’ll get some popcorn in, do I need tissues?🙂

yeah, where’s the romance??😀 will there be a same-sex romance?😛

@ gentledove: No problem, feel free to heckle! 🙂

Clouds’ real name was implied in Chapter 15/16, and revealed by me in the Chapter 16 rant. Good to know you’re not too confused now. Oh dear, I did warn you I don’t read romance fiction, didn’t I? I’ll try my best, but please be patient. I’ve certainly never written a tear jerker before either, but who knows? I would hang on to the tissues, just in case.😉

@ sulz: Oh dear, if you’re this eager for scenes of romance you will almost certainly be disappointed by my attempts at writing those scenes!😦

Patience, please, sulz! I’ve hardly started this story, and romances don’t usually spring out of nowhere in real life! As for same-sex romance… none planned, but this story has a mind of its own, so who knows? But I warn you that romance isn’t the main focus of the story.
