Working on my novel

On Reddit today, I saw a post about the Twitter account that re-tweets people who tweet “working on my novel.”

I’m shocked and sickened by how new-media aware it is of me to blog about social aggregator post about a meta-twitter account. Also, when I finish this, I’m going to post it on Facebook. Maybe when I’m done with that, I’ll take a screenshot and put it on Pintrist while filming myself for Youtube. Foursquare. LinkedIn. Justin Bieber Forum. What was I talking about…?

The reason why I think this is interesting is “working on my novel” is what I’m supposed to be doing most of the time, including right now. When people talk to me and ask if I’m still working on my novel, the answer is yes. That’s what I do. There’s not much else. Seriously, it takes a lot of time.

Well, I guess I should go and… well, you know.

    It’s only really bad when after you say yes, they immediately go “weren’t you working on that like eight years ago?”


    But, I think that obsession to work on the novel is something that happens to writers. We write and feel guilty when we aren’t.
