Relative to the metrics of your typical Blue Check Twitter liberal, I’m at best a loser and at worst a deranged Internet crank. But I can tell a good story. And things are beginning to move fast with the novel I’ve been working on for way too long.
Everything is falling into place.
I’m hoping to finish a strong first draft no later than my birthday, if not sooner.
There are a few quibbly things I have to overcome, but overall I’m very, very pleased. Big unknowns: 1) will people want to ready anything set during not only The Before Times but also during (an alluded to) Trump Era 2) is my social media output too “problematic” for me to sell the thing 3) will there be an actual fucking civil war / revolution 4) should the Biden Era actually occur, will anyone want to have a cathartic read about the Trump Era?
This is not “A Confederacy of Dunces,” I have a limited amount of time to try to sell this. Anyway, wish me luck.
