To write one hundred hopeful words every day for one hundred days


‘I think I understand now why you don’t think Gideon was mad. I’ve thought about it, but really, your argument is the same as mine. It’s not really about sanity. It’s still about love. You think he just doesn’t conform, he doesn’t believe what he should believe, and I agree. He’s so fucked up because of his childhood that he doesn’t believe in love, and so he can’t believe in anything. He has no solid ground, so he falls into the Black Jaws to where the Devil is. Then he believes in the Devil because the devil is him. The devil is his own pain and loneliness and he can really feel that, so he can believe in it.’

The Testament of Ally McClay

My favourite author is James Robertson, who wrote 'The Testament of Gideon Mack' as well as other incredible novels. This is a character from one of my stories, talking to his lover about that book.
