Random elements is something I’m going to try and include in every novel this year round, within reason. I’m not going to have pink rabbits romping through a scene with Elliot for a start, but I think, given I’m interested in symbolism and Linguistics, that this is a good challenge.
If you think about it – what’s the hardest thing to include in a story – something that patently shouldn’t be there – so the only way to blend that away is to find a way to include the element contextually. Why yes, I do feel very self concious saying stupid things, thanks for asking 😉
Audience (From Molly S) – A freak Snowstorm in July(from JC), and from my beloved I got – A datacentre on fire/A penguin from Edinburgh Zoo.
