Hello all, As you will (hopefully) be aware, I am in the process of writing a novel, as explained here. This novel is now in its third incarnation, with the first being a completed piece of roughly 35,000 words and the second never finished, and was first inspired by a short story I wrote for a college competition in early 2007. Now, it will be brought forward for real, and I hope to release the finished version - all 70,000+ words of it - not later than October 30th next year! If I may, I would like to use this thread as a "press release" measure for giving updates on my work. Come this evening, I will have an important announcement to make, and even plan to provide a copy of the opening 2,000 words or so! I would like to thank you all in advance for any constructive suggestions and criticisms you may have, and for your patience. In the meantime though, if you haven't already, please read my thread "A request relating to Brighton station" - and if you are able to provide help, it would be much appreciated. Lastly, please note that this thread's name will change upon the upcoming news release to reflect my novel's title. Also, please note that I will not post on this thread again until the time to reveal all arrives later today. I intend to make the all-important announcement at precisely 1900 hours tonight. Stay tuned...!
