I’m reading through a pile of books (both in paper and on the web – thanks ebrary) on aspects of narrative, and stumbled upon a passage in the book From text to hypertext claiming that “painting can of course, only suggest narrativity” which got me thinking about the choice of the reader. Like choosing to watch certain aspects of the painting in a certain order, och flip from one page to the next in a book. In the latter the convention is stronger, but it is still a choice. Movies are the same thing, though admittedly harder in a cinema. So… without going more in to detail at this point, I think I’ll write something about these moments in a story. The moment of choice. I’ll read some more and come back to you (perhaps with a totally different take on the problem).
