writing my first (complete) novel

m. werneburg, 2008

Once upon a time, I sat down to write a novel. It was a project that would take more than seven years to complete.

It's been an amazing experience, and a big part of my life. While very rewarding, I learned a lot of difficult lessons along the way.

This is a small set of brief articles designed at conveying what the experience was like for me, and my recommendations on writing. This advise is geared toward anyone who is interested in writing their own book.

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

Work is about a daily search for meaning as well as daily bread; for recognition as well as cash; for astonishment rather than torpor; in short for a sort of life, rather than a monday-to-friday sort of dying.
