Example text

Das alles dachte ich damals noch nicht, und ich war fünfzehn geworden, als ich zuerst etwas zu meinem eigenen Vergnügen zu schreiben begann, und dann war es ein phantastisches romantisch-episches Gedicht, etwas von der Art der Idylls of the Kings von Tennyson. Die Haken Vielleicht ist es unsinnig, ein Kapitel "Haken" zu nennen und die Haken alle aufführen und in ein paar Seiten abhandeln zu wollen. Potentielle Haken kommen ja überall vor, sogar gleich am Anfang, - wenn man einen langweiligen Satz geschrieben hat, unzufrieden ist und eine 33 Pause macht.

In Der süße Wahn hatte ich ebenfalls ein Problem, das mit der Polizei zu tun hatte. Etwa auf Seite 180 hat der Held seine Sachen in Koffer und Kartons verpackt, die seinen richtigen Namen - Kelsey - tragen, sie müssen aber aus einem Haus abgeholt werden, in dem er unter dem Namen Neumeister gewohnt hat. Neumeister hat in diesem Landhaus fast wie ein Eremit gelebt, und die Leute aus der Stadt und die Lieferanten kennen ihn nicht mit Namen; aber trotzdem ist das Verfahren für ihn gefährlich, wenn niemand erfahren soll, dass Neumeister und Kelsey ein und dieselbe Person sind.

Vielleicht könnte ich es vom Standpunkt eines Hotelgastes aus schreiben, der sie beobachtet", sagte ich, aber auch das machte mir nicht viel Hoffnung. Dann schlug mein Freund, der kein Schriftsteller ist, vor, ich solle es doch vom Standpunkt des allwissenden Autors versuchen. Das war doch wenigstens eine Idee. Bei dem Wort "allwissend" dachte ich an Objektivität: der allwissende Autor betrachtet die ganze Sache sozusagen aus der Entfernung. Ich machte mich von neuem an die Story und versetzte mich in Gedanken "in die Entfernung", obgleich ich tatsächlich immer noch alles durch die Augen meiner Heldin schrieb.
