A professional micromanager with words, I keep having a hard time writing blogposts suited to sparking and maintaining a conversation.
There must be a reason why I keep doing such things.
Orwell and Freud, according to statistical analysis. Are these algorithms our Digital Age’s new Über-Ich, filtering out everything deemed unsuitable and socially disruptive?
It’s either the universe, or I’m too organized.
Some form principles, it turns out, are surprisingly robust and can sustain even the most nonsensical content.
Ein historisches Dokument, gewissermaßen. Denn im Gegensatz zu Scheinen lassen sich Leistungspunkte nicht in humanistischem Tonfall parodieren.
I barely remember this poem of yore I happened to come across the other day. It creaks & grates, and I have only the most vague idea about what it was supposed to be about.
I always loved “Home on the Range.” Here’s a variation on this song, situated in a 21st century where humanity is still kept, or keeps itself, from being free.
Ein Gedicht über Wölfe im Schafspelz und Schafsköpfe im Wolfspelz nach Abmahnungsmotiven von Jack “Hit the Road” Wolfskin im Geiste von Wilhelm Busch.
My latest nanonovel: Ouroboros
My nanoseries didn’t suit Green Tentacles’ i.e. Thaumatrope’s needs, though I’m not sure what they meant. But I never self-publish submitted and rejected texts.
I’ve got an idea for a new nanonovel, a murder mystery. It’s an idea related to a chapter in Robert Coover’s novel Gerald’s Party.

My next project: An epistolary nanonovel. The problem is, that ultrashort dialog often doesn’t sound dramatic, but rather droll.
My next nanonovel will be a conspiracy thriller. Will take some time; I’d only write a nanonovel with a plot that I’d also appreciate for a regular novel.
Fabia Maxima, Consul & General
A nanonovel should be similar to regular novels in structure and content. You can squeeze a lot into a few words; check out Wired’s six-worders and Thaumatrope.
For a nanonovel, you have to stop being generous with regard to concessions to formal aspects. “The End” is out.
