Welcome to “Awful People,” my little National Novel Writing Month project for The Charleston Gazette-Mail.
It’s been a while since I’ve run a proper blog. Please bear with me as I get used to the controls and whatnot.
This blog will begin November 1. Posting of new episodes/chapters/whatever may turn out to be fairly consistent, but then again, maybe happen at random points in the day, based on my schedule.
Please check back often and maybe bring coffee.
Comments will be enabled for this post only –at least during the active writing part of the novel. As much as I love a good literary discussion (and there’s no reason to believe that what I’m writing will lead to one), firing back and forth will probably give me a great reason not to work.
If anyone wants to, we can talk about what I’ve written December 1.
As a NaNoWriMo book, “Awful People” is bound to be full of all kinds of errors. That’s to be expected. Only Joyce Carol Oates seems able to write fast, be eerily accurate with every single phrase and maintain a good story. If this book becomes too much to get through, check her work out, but expect to be traumatized a little.
That’s all I have for now.
See you on the other side, hopefully.
