Has anyone recycled old off-market or unfinished material for your current work? I've done it and found it a useful creative process. Continue

"Aha!  I have recycled short stories into novels. In one case almost literally at the beginning of the novel. This sort of thing happens to me when the story is complex and the ending seems rushed to me.  At that point it nags at me until I…"

"Chandler is my role model for recycling short story material into novels. For more detail see my blog post at: http://raymondembrack.blogspot.com/2013/01/adventures-in-plagiarizing-myself.html"

Dana King replied to Raymond Embrack's discussion Adventures in Self Plagiarism
"No, unless there are rights issues, which I doubt there would be at such a micro level. Raymond Chandler is famous for recycling plots and sometimes scenes from his short stories into his novels. THE BIG SLEEP is a weaving together of two…"

Jeanne Meeks replied to Raymond Embrack's discussion Adventures in Self Plagiarism
"I wondered about self-plagerism. I hope to publish my first novel, Rim to Rim--Death in the Grand Canyon, someday, but used chunks of the scenery descriptions in an first-person esssay. Does the publication of the essay jeopardize the publication of…"

"I do it all the time. Aside from the creative boost it gives me, it also helps me maintain continuity and consistency in my series."

Dana King replied to Raymond Embrack's discussion Adventures in Self Plagiarism
"Sure do. I never throw anything away. I have one full-length and two aborted novels that have no potential on their own, but there are bits in each I may well use if opportunity permits. Now that you got me thinking about it, i should…"

"I've rewritten finished novels, sometimes two or three times.  It looks as though I'm about to do it again.  Mind you, I hate wasting the time to rewrite a full-length novel, but when something doesn't work it nags at me."

"I enjoy doing just that. I started a manuscript with a character I had written before. The character's voice didnt turn out to be something I wanted this character to be so I rewrote it creating a new character. That novel, Blood…"

Raymond Embrack replied to Michael C. Jacobs's discussion Altman's The Long Goodbye with Elliot Gould. Yea or Nay?
"Next question: Altman's subversive version of Chandler (set in L.A.) or the most faithful adaptaion of the Big Sleep (Robert Mitchum late 70s) but it's set in London?"

I liked Cuba Libre as well. Not sure I can narrow it down to one book. Early on I read Freaky Deaky and Kill Shot and loved them both. Also loved Rum Punch. But my most recent favorite is Mr. Paradise. Great characters. I love how he shares the characters' thoughts. He's a master at it.

Hi Raymond, anyone with a Get Shorty life-soundtrack is a friend of mine! Love that Elmore Leonard!  What's your favorite book of his (besides Get Shorty)?

It's fun...I'll read a book, then have a Chandler pallet cleanser, then another book, then a Hammett.  It's great fun!
