So I'm a novelist now


I was roped into doing Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month), an annual event where people promise to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. I managed to finish earlier today, with a bit of time to spare. It was hard. But I learned a few things: novelists are like PhD's. It doesn't take brilliance to write novels (although it helps). It takes perseverance.

Here's the scary thing: The steaming pile of doo-doo that I wrote is not the worst novel I've ever read.

No, I don't think I'll post it. But I am now not only Athanasius, blogger, but am also Athanasius, novelist!
