Re: "BUG" novel chapter sketch (2nd Edit)

I have trouble seeing this as chapter headings for a novel. Is this going to be the kiss and tell autobiography disguised as a novel?

He once said he writes songs so a person hears them. Maybe he's approaching the novel the same way. Good luck with that. I have NO interest.

Re: "BUG" novel chapter sketch (2nd Edit)

I think Ryan needs to look up the definition of the word, 'fiction'. He could have at least changed the names! It seems like he will keep reinventing this book depending on who his latest crush is. First it was all about Leah (FFS!) now its all about Bug (FFS X 100!).

Ryan doesn't know the difference between fact and fiction anyway - he has trouble with the truth.

Definately strange chapter names, I wonder how Akashic is gonna go for these. These women are probably not gonna be pleased. He is clearly reality challenged.

Re: "BUG" novel chapter sketch (2nd Edit)

I'm actually looking forward to reading this if it ever stops being redrafted and redrafted.
I was just asking the other day at RAA if there was a biog out about him. Maybe this it.
As long as most of sentences make sense and its not purple prose nonsense, and entire pages of total wank, i'll definitely read it...hmm, i see my problem.

It doesn't sound like a novel...And by Christmas? I think Ryan may have bitten off more than he can chew with this writing stuff.

Re: "BUG" novel chapter sketch (2nd Edit)

It used to be about a boy and his imaginary friend who find themselves in the middle of the end times ala revelation. How did it turn into BUG?

He's trying desperately to get her attention. Maybe a book will do it. Brother!

Re: "BUG" novel chapter sketch (2nd Edit)

I thought the novel was always a romance. He said that a couple o f times. Almost all first novels are autobiographical, and the line between fiction and fact is always blurred. The two best short stories I ever wrote, and the only two anybody ever bothered to write me about after they were published, were about me and my grandfather, and me and my mother, and they were both about things that had really happened, but rearranged and somewhat disguised (not enough to keep my mother from being ticked off, but
the stories were good and she got over it). I'm reading Infinity Blues, and it's very good. I haven't been posting or reading here, lately and may not again, but really, flaming a writer for writing about his or her life is just silly.

Re: "BUG" novel chapter sketch (2nd Edit)

Hi Sunny

I don't think there is anything wrong with a fiction book based on some form of the authors reality and I have always been open about how talented I think Ryan is. But I think he's revealed to much about himself and others on his blog to write something using their nicknames. I really don't want to know any more about those relationships. It's not peeking my interest. Just my opinion.

Re: "BUG" novel chapter sketch (2nd Edit)

There is a huge difference between a novel with an actual plot and purpose that is inspired by real life and a novel where the content and motive for being created constantly changes depending on who the author wants to impress.

Re: "BUG" novel chapter sketch (2nd Edit)

The bio that's out ends in about 2000 or 2001 if I remember right. A friend of mine had it, when it first came out, and lost it while moving apartments, but not much loss. I can't remember the author's name but it's not worth getting, especially not at the out of print prices I've seen it going for on Ebay and Amazon. Anyone on any RA board could write a better one.

Re: "BUG" novel chapter sketch (2nd Edit)

Yeah, I don't know when it was "written" but I've heard it is just a collection of articles, not even a real bio, and the price is ridiculous. The only one I watched on ebay ended at $124, I think, and it is a small book.
