That’s the only explanation I can think of.
See, this all started a week ago.Â I’d asked Norm-who I met way back at World Horror last year-to read a novella of mine.Â Well, I heard back from Norm last week.Â He loved the book and agreed to blurb it.Â
But then he said it…
“If I have any problem with this, it’s that it reads like the first act of a novel.”
Seconds after reading that, the gears started to turn in my head.Â Norm thinks I have a great chance of selling the book at novel length during World Horror.
World Horror is in three weeks.
Three weeks to write a novel.Â That’s 60,000 words (at least) added onto a novella while working forty hour weeks and attempting to buy a house.Â I figure 2000-3000 words a night on weeknights, while shooting for 5000-6000 a day on weekends.Â Ouch!
Norm, if I die you have to help Shawna move.
