Sneak Peek: Properties of Light

Today we have a sneak peek from the new hypernovel by Lin Robinson: Properties of Light.

This is not your ordinary kind of book. A prominent photographer quits, starts selling his pictures on the street. And for every picture, there is a story–or in this case a chapter. Some of the images relate to others, some are single visual poems; some evoke horrible cruelty or shocking sex. Many of them hang on abstruse photo-technique, optical tricks, chemical or photic phenomena: the many properties of light.

Properties of Light is available from Amazon and Amazon UK.

It’s not that I deliberately wait until the eleventh hour to start my piece; occasionally I do get the germ of an idea sometime during the preceding month, that develops unconsciously, and by the time I sit down to actually write the post it virtually writes itself; but not this time.

It’s not unusual for me to write an article without previously having any idea of what I’m going to write; inevitably inspiration strikes and I’m off and running. This time however I’ve drawn a complete blank, no inspiration, nothing, and that is unusual. Is this what’s meant by ‘writer’s block’?!?! So where to from here??? I’ve never been here before, new territory, and I must admit I am finding it more than a little disconcerting… Continue reading “The Blank Page”
