do you feel better about your writing?

I don’t like it, but I’m proud that it means a lot to some people.

hey benedict, i've liked your writing for a long time and i just wanted to ask how you find out about these bizarre and fascinating things like the glass delusion? just curious

Ah thanks. I’m not really sure, I guess I just read a lot? I can’t remember where I read about the glass delusion in particular. Made for an uncomfortably forced metaphor though so there’s always that.

The wish-wash, the nitpicks, the flip-flop philippics
I’m pissed off, insipid, it’s pish posh, rididic
My wristwatch, the minutes, they tick-tock
I’m lipsticked, let’s lip-lock, I’m listless, the lid’s off my sickness:
Just shit off you dipshit or trip off a bridge or a clifftop
You’re finished. You’re dislodged.

So I try to ignore it and dip to the chip shop

I've never wanted a technology to exist as bad as an Exit Chip. What I wouldn't give for that kind of freedom.

I definitely understand the temptation. It’s that feeling of not being able to live with yourself, yet not wanting to hurt your loved ones. But there’s also a lot of joy and beauty in life, and that’s worth sticking around for. I think the characters realise that too, by the end.

That was awesome. Now: What is it that makes them your favourite?

I like asking you guys questions, you’re all really interesting. Do any of you have a favourite fictional character?

the internet has been missing you this month! :( are you okay?

Aw that’s sweet of you to say. I’m fine, don’t worry about me. I’m even writing. I just realised I needed to reevaluate my style. I’m not happy with anything I’ve put out

Do you have any books?

I had a book but I took it down because I wasn’t proud of it
