Alternate worlds of an author-wannabe

If I were to become “an obscure novelist whose work will be admired and studied by a select few for decades,” I’d probably have been writing about the Era of Me-Philosophy.  The book will provide a vivid and gory depiction of the society under the rule of social media platforms — while at the same time hatch a good theory for tracing the Mother Author – the culprit of these crazed architecture.


As a “popular paperback author whose books give pleasure to millions,” my books are probably about the emergence of radical movements.  One movement would be about the environment, say the retaliation of vegetation to human abusers, hence turning everyone green save for their teeth.  That’s going to be comical; but internally, it’s just a novel-length satirical piece.  Another movement could cover feminism, say an attempt at fictionalizing Roxane Gay’s “Bad Feminist” essay.


But sorry — those were just fleeting stories during my usual daydream sessions.

The star of my fantasy picture?  That “literary-minded witch!”

  1. Bravo. Great observations. Social media platforms do exert an influential strangle hold on modern society. George Orwell’s Big Brother has been outdone by Facebook, Twitter and a host of other user friendly electronic apps. Sign in and Veg out is the mantra of the day.

    1. Thank you, Gerry. Indeed, this amusing form of slavery has been taking place. And like most forms of abuse, the social media platform makes it easy to lose oneself and become oneself at the same time.
