The library of never finished books

The Library of Lost Books.

The library of Dreams.

In his famous Sandman comics, author Neil Gaiman presents Lucien, Morpheus’ librarian, who watches over the library of the Dreaming- all the books that were dreamed of but never written.

This reminds me of one of the peculiar burdens of novel writing, which is that novels take years to write, ergo I can only write a few of these in my life, ergo there will be so very many books and story ideas that I will either abandon or never write down.

This is not to say that other forms of writing, poetry or blogging say, are any easier. It’s just that you can put together a lot of poems or blogs posts in the amount of time it takes to write a novel.

Here’s to the books that I never started or never finished.
