I've finished my first novel which took 28 years to pull from my flesh. Its not brilliant but its not horrible either. It was passed on by an agent however. A friend is reading it to give me advice. He has room from which he can speak. But its time to pound out a 2nd, perhaps more mature, truer manuscript. Something from within? Shall I walk forth into the dark depths a la Eugene O'Neil?
I think the NaNoWriMo 2008 might be a good impetus and structured process.
