Should you try to write the Great American Novel?


Here’s my latest CreateSpace blog post: The Great American Novel

Want a little taste before you commit to the click?  Really?  Knowing I wrote it isn’t enough?  That’s pretty rude, but here you go:

However,  I don’t believe writers should be in competition with history. That is to say, a writer is likely to fail if they set out to write the Great American Novel. The writing becomes an external endeavor at that point, meaning the writer who sets out to write the Great American Novel is setting out to please and astonish the reader when he or she should be serving the story. A writer’s first priority should always be to satisfy that fictional internal world he or she is creating.

There you have it, your precious sample. Now click, read, comment… please!
