from my fantasy/sci-fi/horror series Tabula Rasa [link]The doctor must introduce a new henchman to the laboratory and explain how the brainwashing drug Tabula Rasa is used.
Help yourself to more of my creepiness.
I still don’t know why I love this guy so much, but I always have a lot of fun writing him in first person. I rarely use it with the rest of my characters.
I wish I could have kept Mr. Hare around a bit longer in Tabula Rasa. He was my favorite minor character (with Mr. Lupinacci being a close second).
Hmm, I guess this isn’t exactly an object since it is verbal instructions. I’ll just say that Dr. Jameson didn’t trust Hare’s memory and wrote it all out for him anyway.
The way I imagined this, it is as if you are listening in on one side of a telephone conversation. I kind of liked writing this way and might try some more later, but do you think it is too confusing or distracting?Edits 6/22/10- smoothed out using suggestions posted.
