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.”
Either is fine, though Hektor is the first name.
I caught the reference and meant “not sure I fully understand” in a good way :).
Ah gotcha. No problem.
Btw, also really enjoyed your post on the short story.
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.
P.S. Is that background image on your blog the Cliffs of Moher?
I have to admit I don’t know the source. It was a free stock image I chose, not a picture I took (sadly).
I’d bet money it’s the Cliffs of Moher, Co. Clare, west coast of Ireland. More pics here: http://www.google.com/images?um=1&hl=en&safe=off&rlz=1C1DVCL_enSE398SE398&biw=903&bih=444&tbm=isch&sa=1&q=cliffs+of+moher&aq=f&aqi=g10&aql=&oq=
Thanks for the pointer. I think you’re right. Have you been there?
Yeah man, but I’m Irish so it wasn’t that much of a hike, just the other side of the country, about 200 miles or so.
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.
