    Default About 75% the way through the first draft of my great NOVEL

    The sense of fulfillment I will feel deep inside when I finish it (even if it is the first manuscript, with a long line of edits in its not so distant future) will be immense.

    Rough aim was around 85,000 words (that'd be the average length novel a debut writer can usually get published, before 80k is too little, after 90k is too much) but I think it's gonna be around 110,000 so I'll need to cut it down. It's ten chapters long, all of varying lengths.

    No.
    Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."

    hooray. i'm working on one. it's kinda hard to make a story where your protagonist is rapist/serial killer/sociopath. hide that fact from the readers when the story is a blend of first person and third person (depending on the chapters and who is in them).

    The rise of social isolationism in the advent of the technological age would be the theme running throughout it I suppose. It's like ten short stories that take place over two years.

    I plan on writing a novel one day but I can never seem to find the time to actually start.
