The Novel

I have loads of work and a truckload of writing to do. Naturally, my solution is to embark on personal projects and see if I can break myself.

I have been writing a novel - this novel - for two years now. And every time I write it, like a collaboration between Neil Gaiman and another author - it gets shorter.

I have a scene I really like. The protagonist masturbates over the dead body of a girl he will eventually fall for.

It's an homage to a scene in Neon Genesis Evangelion. And I might turn it into a movie or telemovie before it ever becomes a book.

For now, whenever I take a break from writing stuff for work, I...write the novel. If I can finish it before 2012, I will be pleasantly surprised.
