Ecmandu's Book

This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

Ecmandu's Book

Postby Pedro I Rengel » Thu Dec 17, 2020 12:33 am

We can keep this as a sort of informal discussion to spitball about how to compile, edit and present this book.

Tell me what you think about this Ec: we keep the writing in the Second person, so that it is as if you are addressing the reader. Think of a first person monologue at the opening of a movie.

"You probably..."

So the format of the book is you are speaking directly to the reader.

I further think we should keep a main narrative line that starts with this new stage of yours, where you are confident and have overcome your previous weaknesses, I think you know what I mean, we discussed it. And then we add previous posts to that along the way, but I don't yet rightly know how.

The thing is,

As interesting as you think I may be. My book is nothing without a co-author. I’m incapable of this.

The idea that you want to work with me through space and time is highly appreciated by me.

Sure, I can always say cool shit, that’s how I’m wired, but the perspective of another being is indispensable...

You always need a mirror to see yourself.

And remember that this is all spitballing, we aren't committing to anything.

Oh fuck,

I never trust commitments. We’re still just having casual conversation on ILP.

I could probably write the whole damn thing myself if I wanted to; but I’m not arrogant, the perspective of at least one other is indispensable and invaluable. It makes books (and life) always better

I see I'm just gonna have to assemble this myself and just ask for your signature at key points.

Not even close. I’ll edit anything and everything you you compile. You’re the most important part though. You are another being! You’re an intelligent being! You’re a sarcastic being! I love all of it.
