So, I've been writing this thing lately... it's a rather large thing... in fact, it could be termed, let us say, a novel. And being that it's only the second time I've tried to really write a novel in my life (the 40,000 word monstrosity, written as a fifteen year old, does not count), it is rather... difficult.
Not difficult in terms of the actual writing craft because I'm rather solid on that. Not perfect, but solid.
Rather, it's difficult in that I cannot blab about it on the internet. I cannot blog about it because on the off-chance that it is marketed, it will probably be submitted under a pseudonym, to avoid the appearance of nepotism. (No, I will not submit it; Lori will submit it and when it is sold, reveal that I wrote it; this is done a lot.)
And I desperately, desperately want to blab about it, and instead, am limited to a small group of friends who are very patiently putting up with me. And the husband. Except, he's sort of obligated to put up with me because I blab at him while he's defending space things and stuff on Eve Online and is not allowed to leave his computer before he docks. (I'm tricksy, I am. =)
So all of you out there, who can freely talk about your novels on writing blogs? I envy you immensely.
And thus, I declare this an open thread for you all to babble away about your books to your heart's content. I've got 7000 words written on mine and that's all I can tell you for now.
I'd have to kill you, otherwise... =)
