The Novel

I’m writing a novel.

I have been doing this for the last seven years or so, I can’t remember exactly when I had the idea for it, but I did, and now I can’t write anything else until this one gets out of my head. Which is a shame because I’ve got three other novels waiting to be written, and each of them to my mind is better, more interesting, than the one that sits like a pregnant cuckoo in my imagination.

So occasionally I’ll post up some excerpts from the novel here. A to prove to the naysayers that I am actually doing some writing on this trip and B to force myself to keep writing the bastard, until that first draft is out there and then I can relax and let someone else edit it. Before trying to write the next one.

Ps. I have done this before (written novels), except I was younger and feistier, and had no idea how all-consuming writing novels actually is. So I stopped and went drinking for the next twelve years or so.

But like Fast Eddie says “I’M BACK!”

  1. When can we expect the first draft? Have you set yourself deadlines? Sxx

  2. check out NaNoWriMo in November.

    • tried to do nanowrimo, the last couple of years, and always failed miserably, this year though. Who knows? Will have plenty of time on my hands so is probably a goer…

  3. Fella, got a new email address. Also, my novel is a 94K, looking to get finished in the next three months. Would be cool to hear from you. Take care. D.
