Niel's writing a fuckin' novel!

This is what I am doing in November ... I'm writing a novel bitches! So when I say I'm doing work on my commute to and from beautiful White Plains I will be throwing together my 50,000 words 30 day masterpiece. It's not going to be the great American novel ... But I think for 30 days worth of writing it should be good. I'm not sure what its going to be about, my early idea is about an orphan who gets invited to a school for wizards, and it turns out he is destined to be this great wizard named Larry - I don't think anyone has written anything like this . Really, I am thinking sort of regular guy living in some sort of extraordinary circumstances - it'll probably be about how much White Plains sucks.

My prediction is you write like gangbusters for the first few days, then your story hits a road block and you start napping on the train instead.

You may be right, but as I said it doesn't have to be good ... just long ... so there can be a nonsnesnsical solution to any road blocks.

Here's an idea. How about a story about an amateur golfer trying to get his tour card.
