So. All of my current work takes place inside of a universe. I was thinking of a character read a book her mother wrote. What if I wrote that book? Thing is. It has no value. It isn't a story. The book in this case is a guidebook. Or something like that. As in the mother in this case wrote a book about magic. How she learned to use it. As a guide to help others learn. What if I wrote such a book in her voice. Like completely and fully. Her mannerisms, her voice, referring to her life completely as it happened. As in nothing inside the book to give it away. Written exactly as it should be inside the other story. Is that just absurd? I mean, obviously a book like this has no value unless I suppose the universe I am writing in became popular. Even then it may have no value. I am curious if anyone has ever done anything like this. Or if you found out a writer wrote a book mentioned in his book. Would that make you curious? Even if it is a worthless book in the sense that it is a guide to something that doen't exist? And if did this. I would probably go as far as to have it published under the characters name. lol. Because that would be hilirious. lol.
