I've decided to write a novel.
This, in itself, isn't crazy. Lofty, perhaps. The crazy part is that in the past few weeks I've been intentionally culling my workload down to where I can focus almost all of my attention on this book throughout the summer.
Have I mentioned it's been nothing short of a miracle that I've managed to build up a relatively steady clientele?
So, now you get where the "crazy" label applies.
The biggest problem is that I'm not sure what the novel is about. (Yeah -- that's kind of a big deal.) The thing is I've got no less than 4 potential novels outlined (or copiously noted), so now I've just got to pick the one I want to spend the summer writing.
It's not as easy as it sounds.
Should I go with the story of a young, yet washed up screenwriter? The straight-laced HR manager who begins living different versions of her life? The niece of a famous advice columnist who accidentally rewrites her aunt's column? Or the story set in the afterlife?
Which would you want to read?
