…trying to get my novel off the ground, John C. Wright is cranking out great works of fiction. He wrote to place a well-deserved boot on my butt to get me going (he does this periodically out of a sense of noblesse oblige and a brotherly encouragement of my very nervous foray into fiction), so I naturally tried to turn the tables on him with a classic distraction in order to maintain current levels of laziness:
I thank you for this boot in the butt. It is needed and will, I hope, be heeded. I have the first part of the book outlined in my brain. After that, things are fuzzy. My idea is to write out what I have and see where it goes.
So, is there some way I can now cleverly turn this into a tu quoque and put you on the spot for a new novel? Or are you one of those people who is already diligently at work and leaving me with no excuses or hiding places for my sloth?
*POOF* If you go out to Barnes and Noble tonight, this very night, you will see my new novel, JUDGE OF AGES, on the bookshelves. It just came out this month.
I am working on two novels right now, the next in my ‘Count to the Eschaton’ sequence called THE VINDICATION OF MAN, and a Christian time-travel fantasy called SOMEWHITHER.
Lent is an excellent time to be reminded of the fact that I suck. Also to read John C. Wright’s excellent fiction.
