The novel is finished.

I wrote every single day from November 4, 2015 to March 22, 2016. Final word count: 124,762 words. 493 double-spaced pages. This is a first draft, so that number will come down in the rewrite. But it’s done!

Now, time for a drink.

Oh, and the book is called The Underwood.

First draft of "The Underwood"

Random Writing Quote

"One of the big problems that new writers have, especially thsoe whose star rises really quickly, is that they get the idea they're writing 'art.' Well, anybody who sits down to write 'art' is deluding himself. I always use the same examples, and I don't care if they're now regarded as geniuses: Shakespeare didn't write 'art,' and neither did Charles Dickens. They wrote to make a buck. And to entertain their audience – so they could continue to write and make a buck. It just so happens that they were geniuses, and their work has lasted. But nobody knew that at the time. The test of time is the only way to judge if anything is a classic."
