Once again, the overwhelming desire to create the not-so-great anywhere novel overcomes me, so I enter the competition (with myself) once again. Since I have not written anything but shopping lists and memos over the past year, and an occasional to-do list, it will be, shall I say, challenging (Gulp).
This year I will use the beta version of Scrivener which has just been released for the PC platform. Can't wait until Scrivener follow-up which will inevitably follow.
How about the cliche, "The longest novel begins with the first word."
John Barth wrote, "My last words will be my last words," but had nothing to say about first words.
Work in any direction. Title? Plot? Theme? I think something tennis-based will do. Hmmm.
