how's your novel coming along?

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

it makes me feel bad because i feel like maybe that's too fast to be any good. But then i remember i will rewrite this shit to death probably anyway

Good job, y'all! I published something for the first time in a while this week and it was tight.

Just discovered this thread. I've been writing a novel, it's an ambitious task. I've got about 90-100 pages so far and looks like this is gonna be at least 800 pages work. The sheer size of it scares me and I know that I procrastinate too much but there were so many things happening in my life, as some of you may know, that I try to relax and take it easy: i may finish it or not, there's no deadline, I am doing it for myself. So sometimes the regime I impose over myself works, but lately it does not, I've been watching stupid TV shows or listening to the music all day. And I've fot perfect conditions: a quiet house in a forest, not much friends around, and a patient partner...

At least I have the complete story and all the characters in mind and I think about it all the time.

also, what sort of response times did you get from your agents when you queried them? like, did you get a surprise e-mail six months later, or are people pretty good about saying, 'no, i'm not interested' in a timely fashion. thanks hipinion authors



my book came out the other day

just keep wading through the shit everyone until you get to the far side of the river
