I'm a new novel writer with nothing published yet. Starting to work on the "short form proposal" letter. Read Queryshark's harpoons of deft wit. I've done a lot of non-fiction writing with publications in science, terrorism and economics and endless reams in early years of engineering documents beyond stacking. I've written a novel (or maybe it's three @ 216,000 words now) and revised to the point where I think I'm not improving it anymore. I would like to work on making the novel a really good one. I came to Davis from the Bay Area. Lived half-time in Central Asia. Lived on the East coast, multiple times in the Midwest; lived in the Southeast, and in southern California.
With my mind going, I came to Davis for relaxation and years of psychological floggings. Prior, I wrote for West Point/DHS texts, but alas, my sage words were leaves in a gale. Eschewing such communication, I birthed a novel. Ibidem non tu sedeo?
