I’ve had an idea for a novel rattling around for a while, but with work, child, life and all the other usual reasons-slash-excuses just can’t seem to get off my duff and get the thing actually started.
But November is Nation Novel Writing Month and this time I’ll be in the race.
Today is Oct. 31, so it starts tomorrow. I’m of course deeply concerned I’m about to make a huge—huger?—jackass of myself, but so be it.
This is the time! There shall be writing, or at least typing.
See you on Nov. 30 with fingers worn down to nubs and hopefully a good first stab at a novel.
If you’re interested, you can track my progress here.
Includes Hollywood Dead, Tales from the Loop, Things from the Flood, The Court of Broken Knives, and Port of Shadows.
Nic has a retinal tear and has his vision is saved by a laser.
Includes The Storm Before the Storm, White Trash, Calypso, Tell the Machine Goodnight, Prince of Fools, and Provenance.
The Internet tells Nic to install Ubiquiti gear in his house, so he does, and now he has thoughts.
What I wish I’d known when I started podcasting.
Nic starts a new podcast about—gasp!—American sports.
Mostly excellent non-fiction in this installment. Includes Fantasyland, The Miracle of Dunkirk, Das Reich, The Undoing Project, Waiting for the Punch, Vacationland and Points of Impact.
