I've taken a peek at a long novel I've been at work In in some form or another for about ten years now. I haven't been working on it for the past few months as I've been incredibly busy, but I think I have an idea on how I'd like to fix the beginning. I've been getting lots of ideas for it lately and am very excited. When people ask me what it's like, I have a few working descriptions which are only partially tongue in cheek. One would be to say it's like a Gaddis novel written by Leatramonte. Another thing I also like to say is that it's like Willhelm Meister's Apprenticeship written by Burroughs. I've thought about putting excerpts on this blog but I'm not sure what form or what angle I would go with.
I don't expect the book to be even remotely finished anytime soon, but perhaps it will manifest. I'm sure the fruits of my research will manifest in some other form on the way, so one can expect that.
