i don't feel like my writing is  'nihilistic' or  'about boredom/mundane things'  or any of the other buzzwords people use. it's weird when people say shit like that. almost like they're treating the writing like a magic-eye puzzle where they can just figure out one word or idea to use. most reviews i read ('official' ones and ones people just post somewhere) don't even talk about anything specific in the book.  they just generalize.

feel the same.

used to get really angry when people refer to your work in such a way. especially when they call the nameless protagonist a "loser".

haha shit, oh yeah. forgot about that. i guess that doesn't bother me because i could be convinced i'm a loser. i know it, you know it, hell, everybody knows it. but yeah from now on i'm going to try and incorporate 'group of friends' and a 'social life' into shit to avoid that. or like, a random cruise where the main character has fun. or i'll have lines like, "he checked how much money he had and there was a lot, from his successful business endeavors."

oh and also, since my onions are at near-boil anyway, when somebody says the 'other version' chapters in PERSON are to "pad the book's pagecount" it's like, "helloooooooo, we made the font smaller to make the pagecount LESS, so the book is cheaper, ya fung son of a bitch."
