RE: The Dying Body Chronicles 8: Story of my life
Despite the narrator's intention, we do have a character and we do have conflict. The character of course, is the nameless creator, the author of this dark exercise. And we do have conflict. The conflict is between the author and the reader. The narrator--the author--is antagonistic. There is a challenge to not engage, to not believe.
The narrator throws convention to the wind with contemptuous disregard for the reader's expectation. The voice of the narrator is Brechtian in its refusal to entertain. There will be no diversion from the dark truth.
Despite your assertion, @warpedpoetic, this is a story, an extraordinary story that does not bore. Thank you for posting the story in the Ink Well community.
