    Not sure I fully understand, but I like it :).


    • Thanks Karl (or is it Hektor!?), it was playing on a quote from Beyond Good & Evil by Friedrich Nietzsche who said “If you stare into the abyss for too long, the abyss will begin to stare back at you.”


  2. Ah gotcha. No problem.


  3. Thanks Hektor, I’m going to try and put up a mix of general writing interest and publishing industry stuff and see what people enjoy.


  4. P.S. Is that background image on your blog the Cliffs of Moher?


  5. Hektor Karl says:

    Thanks for the pointer. I think you’re right. Have you been there?


  6. Ha, I love it! 🙂 I always wondered how I would feel if I stared into the abyss and it was too busy to stare back.
