In the back of a strange used goods store, Josh finds an old Remington typewriter and a fedora with some very mysterious powers. As Josh embarks on his first novel writing adventure, he finds that his new hat has its own story to tell - of a time before history began - and is quite demanding of Josh's attention. As the story consumes him, Josh's life begins to unravel, and he soon finds he is unable to separate himself from the hat and the story. When the last page is written, Josh is left with more questions than answers...both about the story and his own life.
Chuck gives an overview of the book:
Walking through a door one afternoon was a life-changing event for Josh. Earlier that morning, he had made a grand announcement. Grandiose might have better described it.
“I’m going to write a novel, and what’s more I’m going to write it in a month.”
When his friends stopped laughing he said, “I’m not kidding. I saw it on the internet, a challenge to write a 50,000-word novel by the end of November. I’m starting at midnight on November 1st.”
His friends looked at each other shaking their heads. They had heard crap from Josh before, and believed were hearing it now.
In spite of his insisting he would do it, they all turned and walked away.
Hell, he thought, that only takes 1,667 words a day, give or take.
When Josh woke up that morning, he had no idea — absolutely none — that a typewriter and hat would figure into his day. But, if I told you any more now, there wouldn’t be a story to tell.
