I found it very difficult to come up with ideas for novels I would never write. Basically, I chose genres that I was never really interested in reading and invented storylines along those themes. I'm a little worried as to the amount of work I will have to do for these in the next tasks... ;)


Glutton Notes


1. How does a death rattle 'break' a night?

2. The word 'just' from the second part could also be omitted.

3. Sharp emptiness?

4. This is the contracted form of 'it is' or 'it has', the possessive form is 'its'.
