ok, scrap that...in case anyone is wondering;

Livor mortis or postmortem lividity or hypostasis (Latin: livor—bluish color, mortis—of death), one of the signs of death, is a settling of the blood in the lower (dependent) portion of the body, causing a purplish red discoloration of the skin: when the heart is no longer agitating the blood, heavy red blood cells sink through the serum by action of gravity. This discoloration does not occur in the areas of the body that are in contact with the ground or another object, as the capillaries are compressed...

i found it in an old writing journal...

Livor mortis will clear up during the embalming process as the embalming fluid displaces the body's blood.

There are, I suppose, lots of people called Ruby in Queensland. Now I've seen two of them.

It ties in with what I'm currently working on...

The novella is a work of contrast, not all people will feel guilt, not all people will feel hope, some will ultimately not care; originally my aim is to show that people have lost interest in the dead and have no empathy for the living...in this fiction anyway.

Cause if you were you would have a plefera of material.....why don't you know this?


hi fuzzy butt,

i am from the country, a redneck from the queensland bush. I spent my childhood watching my family work the pigs until my uncle got septicemia, work the dairy cattle until the farm was sold. my father worked as a stock agent for many years; the last couple of years being the hardest as he saw his friends and then ultimately himself lose their jobs. I don't write this for competition but so you can see that I am not naive to what you must be going through, if you are from a farm. Myself as a fiction writer, if I sought to write about Australians then yes, I would have a 'plethora' of material, however my subject matter is not Australian based.



I'm writing a radical fiction and my chosen subject matter has arisen from current and past pograms currently happening or that have happened around the world. Whereas I feel for those Australians and my family that still live out bush, right now, I'm writing about a world consciousness of which I'm sorry to say there is a vast confusion of the terms hope, guilt and care, in regards to my subject matter that is.

I just have to say, I've no interest in wasting time for arguments sake on pure confusion but hopeful that you can understand that I don't feel guilty that you got the wrong end of the stick, rather I just hope things get better for you guys down there.

thanks everyone, was an interesting afternoon. Back to the writing, the fiction writing that is.

That doesn't really give me enough information to choose an option. What is your novella about, what is its subject matter?

In this country (the UK), for instance, there is an interest in genealogy which is shared by many people. As these people find out about their ancestors, they find an appreciation for their relatives' way of life. One result of this is that it also gives them a new appreciation of their own lives by comparison.

Notwithstanding, this only shows an interest in dead relatives. You may be referring to something different to this.
