Mr. Paperman, sir! You ave read my novel! Thank you!

You make an interesting point, and after explaining it to me twice, I think I have it.

Yes, maybe I should do some self referential writing. I am already a big fan of intertextuality, and leave major messages imbedded in the prose, like a sideband message on a regular radio signal. If I add self referential passages and characters, it could be a shorthand sidebar commentary that would be noticed by my regular readers that would be innocuous to the casual reader.

I will ponder on the matter. I predict that you will have converted me to the Robert Parker school of reusable characters and scenery.

Norman Paperman . . . by chance, are you from California? You have such a deft touch as a director; and wanting to direct is a typical Californian trait. ;-) I am guessing that we have met before. If not, I am sure we could become friends… that is, if we could both quickly tell finely crafted truth from full frontal fiction.
