Dotty’s New Novel – Part 2 – This Is Not A Love Story


Before I get started, here’s the link to the first post I did about my novel in case you’ve forgotten I was writing one or you’re a recent follower who hasn’t seen the post.




It’s been a while since I last posted about my novel and progress has been GOOD. I’ve decided (a decision!!) that my novel will NOT be a love story (you might have already spotted that bit in the title), it’s going to be a HATE story because there are far too many love stories in the world and NOT NEARLY ENOUGH hate stories – NONE that I can think of, but I might be wrong. And why is that, you might ask?

It’s because of the RAMPANT and SICKENING hatred people have for hate. THE HATRED OF HATE is WRONG. Hating hate is HATEFUL and DETESTABLE and it needs to STOP. Hate should be allowed the same rights as any other emotion. Aren’t we supposed to be striving for a world of EQUALITY and TOLERANCE? A world in which all are fairly treated and everyone is given the same respect and dues as everyone else? But no it isn’t like that, is it? The world is full of BIGOTRY and DISCRIMINATION. Those who hate hate are nothing but hatists, which, by the way, is pronounced hate-ist not hat-ist so really it should be spelt hateist but then people would pronounce it like atheist, hate-eist and there’s no such word. Oh, wait, hang on a minute — on second thoughts YES IT CAN BE HATEIST because AGEIST has kept the E and no one pronounces it ag-eist (rhyming with raggiest), do they?

So don’t be a hateful hateist full of hatred for HATE. It’s not nice. GIVE HATE A CHANCE.



So now you know the main theme for my novel (hate). And you also know, from what I’ve just said, that my novel will incorporate many elements of my campaign for equality for hate, that within the complex and refined layers and depths of my novel the crusade for fairness will always prevail, transmitting its honour and rightness directly to the hearts of my readers via subliminal messages intertwined throughout my carefully chosen words, sentences, paragraphs and chapters.



Which leads me to the reason for this post. I want to give you the privilege of being the first people to see MY SECOND WORD OF MY FIRST NOVEL. I’ll also give you a demonstration of how my subliminal messages work.


My first word is –


my second word is —



Can you see what I’ve done? Can you?

my first word is THE

my second word is THREAT

my second word includes ALL THE LETTERS THAT MAKE UP MY FIRST WORD with the remaining letters spelling RAT and what is THE RAT if it isn’t a THREAT?



Also, I’ve very cleverly used the word THREAT because it includes my theme word HATE and the remaining letters when you take out the word HATE are the letters T and R which, when put together and repeated fast enough, sound like the word TEAR and what happens when you see a RAT that you HATE and it’s a THREAT? You cry a little TEAR, don’t you? And, if you haven’t already noticed, the word TEAR is also included within the word THREAT. So is the word EAT (what the RAT will do to you) and the word ATE (what the RAT did to someone else).

AND – the word HEART is within the word THREAT.

ART is there too.

So is HEAT.



Fucking brilliant, isn’t it? I doubt whether Kafka or Stendhal or Hemingway could have come up with such LITERARY EXCELLENCE in such a short space of time. In fact, I’m doing so well with this, my first novel, I’m writing so speedily and with such depth, that I’m thinking of making a WHOLE NEW BLOG for my novel in order to show all you wannabes out there HOW IT’S DONE.


Thank you and goodnight.





N.B. — It’s not night, it’s morning. But night sounds better.

  1. Dear Dotty,

    “The Threat” would actually make a great working title for the novel!

    Love, Missus Tribble xxx

    Dear Dotty,
    Fecking Brilliant. Do show us how it’s done, please.
    xoxo, Peaches.

  3. Just when I thought you couldn’t top the first word, you go and do something like this. Pure literary genius. I am in awe.

  4. Sign me up for a copy!

  5. *stunned*

    Wow. I’m not sure I can cope with this… The anticipation for when you might reveal the third word and the associated connections it will have might just kill me. Or send me back into a retreat…!

    • Dear fhc,

      Thank you. When I’ve finished editing my first two words I’ll get cracking on my third. A telling sign of a great novel is when the tension and suspense are heightened to such an extent they cause the death of a reader. I do hope you’re not that reader.

      Love Dotty xxx

  6. Can’t wait for the movie, or maybe it’ll have to be a mini series.

    • Dear Misfit,

      No, not a mini series. I want Danny Boyle, he did such a good job with the Olympics. I don’t know how I’m going to fit a mill chimney in a hospital bed though.

      Love Dotty xxx

  7. This is blowing my mind… Anagrams… rats… and hate. And people hate rats… well, I don’t, I used to have pet rats, but whatever… And wait, are we supposed to hate people who don’t hate enough so we can add more hate to the world, or hate people who hate too much even though this still adds hate to the world?… it is almost too much to take in…

  8. Looking forward to the new “How I Did It” blog.

  9. LOL, made me laugh out loud in a very unattractive way. Tsk, Tsk. I can’t wait for the fourth word. Keep them coming.

    • Dear ttwi,

      Thank you. I’ll have to do my third word first. I can’t think as far ahead as the fourth just now or my rapid creative flow will CEASE.

      Love Dotty xxx

  10. I’m not so sure if I should say I LOVE it or I HATE it: either way it’s GREAT!

  11. I’ve caught up now – the link to Pt.1 for newbies such as myself is invaluable, I hate feeling like there’s something someone isn’t telling me, and I wouldn’t want to miss out on this. I read somewhere… I hope it wasn’t Steve Hely [How I Became a Famous Novelist]… that once you have the title you’re pretty much done. A hate story is good, there’s lots of good things to hate, like the aforementioned novel 😉

    • Dear Ella,

      I don’t have the title yet. I have options for the title but no title. When I have enough options I’m going to put them all in a box and pick one out. 🙂

      Love Dotty xxx

  12. Dear Dotty

    Brilliant! Can’t wait to read the finished piece… which, by my estimation, should be around the year 17012 (that’s on a projected novel length of 90,000 words with a productivity of 6 words per year).

    Who knows, you may have a creative splurge and shave a few centuries of the estimated release date! Any plans of a trilogy?


  13. OMG!! So worth the wait for the 2nd word!!! Awesome! 😀

  14. Dear Dotty,

    That tears it, I’m doing more school so I can write a dissertation on your novel.


    • Dear owl,

      No amount of education will be enough to adequately probe and dissect the hidden intricacies of my work. 🙂

      Love Dotty xxx
