The Great American Novel

Now here's a novel idea. Writing a novel.

It comes as no surprise that I enjoy writing. What's even more useful than writing the actual novel is finding someone interested enough to actually read the thing once you're done.

I saw a book tonight at Barnes and Noble that basically said you have to "sell" your book to an editor in the first five pages. Sometimes even the first page.

Five pages?

Hell, I have no idea I can write that many in the first place, but I'm willing to try.

I left the bookstore with a couple copies of Writer's Digest; I'm getting closer to starting.

At least I know I have to write at least five pages.

More on my writing here.

(Of course now we have Barnes & Noble) "Libraries raised me. I don’t believe in colleges and universities. I believe in libraries because most students don’t have any money. When I graduated from high school, it was during the Depression and we had no money. I couldn’t go to college, so I went to the library three days a week for 10 years." ~Ray Bradbury
