I Wish I’d Written That

Have you ever read a story and thought about how you wish you’d thought of it yourself? I just read one in the book The Gate 2: 13 Tales of Isolation and Despair. The story was from Daniel Pyle and and it’s called Night Night. The ending blew me away and since I love twist endings, I wish I’d written it myself. There are also a couple of stories in there by my pals, David McAfee and David Dalglish. So I guess I’m pimping out this awesome book of short stories. Well, at least so far it’s awesome.

My point is that sometimes you think of neat things and want to write about it but there are times you read something spectacular by someone else and wish you’d written it yourself. That’s how I feel about this book. Great job Daniel and I can’t wait to read the stories by the two Davids.

  1. I often feel that way. But then, with many books, I feel very glad that I wasn’t the one who wrote it! Guess it all depends on the story and the language, huh?
