As one experiencing the “first novel” as I type and procrastinate, you write what I have been trying to describe to others for the two years I have been writing. Just when you thought writing as a freelance arts writer could not be lonelier, here comes the need to write the novel. I am almost finished and have even begun to dread the moment when I will no longer have this behemoth in my bonnet everyday of my life. All this to share back and thank you for expressing so well. I will surely go out and buy your book and read it.
