Not NaNoWriMo – Part 2

Hello fellow Internet-users. I’m back with more evidence as to why I really shouldn’t participate in the year’s National Novel Writing Month with another idea for a novel that no-one should ever write.

The title of this non-idea is as follows:

The Darkness Of The Light

This ‘clever’ sounding title is my attempt at literary fiction. I don’t really know what it would be about but the title alone should be enough to tell you it’s going to be really intellectual. I mean how can light be dark? Clearly there is some sort of personal tragedy at the heart of this tale. Perhaps by sharing in the protagonist’s misfortune and consequential stoic optimism we can learn something about our own lives and relationships.

I don’t know.

It all sounds a bit pretentious to be honest.

But it should still sweep to the top of the bestsellers on a wave of critical acclaim and word of mouth before everyone realises it’s actually a bit over-rated and derivative.

But seriously, how can light be dark? My mind is literally blown by my own genius…

    Changing the tone completely from your humourous post, the title of your fictional book reminded me of one of the most affecting books I’ve read called This Blinding Absence of Light. So good. Grim – so grim – but so good. Might have to dig it out again for a reread…

    Hahaha… oh I do hope there are plenty of these still to come! I’m quite a fan of the cover and probably would be swayed into turning the pages on that and the title alone (I can be very shallow and rarely heed the book related saying). I’m also enjoying the change in spelling for the author. Adds to the mystery somewhat!

      Plenty more fake books to come. The name spelling was a typo but on reflection I quite like it too

    Sounds like a lampshade to me
