After all, it's a tough job but someone has got to do it.
No, just one of the next great Australian novels. Done it once. Will do it again.
I've worked on my novel "Before the Rooster Crows" for ten years and it's close to completion with editing. It's the hardest thing I think I've ever done, but to me, It's a DOOZY.
And is is as eligible as any to be "The One"!
Hi Jeff, If you're referring to mine, yes, I think it is. I hope it will be the one.
Thanks again Jeff, You're very kind.
Every writer I know would love to write the next Great American Novel and I'm no exception. :)
Although my writing will probably never be considered great, I would like to write a novel that people remember and say "hey that was pretty good." If that's the same thing, then yes, I would.
But well worth it all when you see your novel in print.
Kelli, I sooooo agree with what you have to say. Your comment mirrors how I feel and what I've experienced as well. My novel has taken me ten years to write, and for a long time, I thought I was the only writer ever to take so long to write it. It's always good to know other "great writers" take a long time to complete a story. Let's continue to believe we've written the next greatest novel.
Actually, I would prefer the Canadian novel! <grin>
But having said that, I've recently edited a novel by a new writer whose book could definitely be classified as a great American novel, but as yet she has not found a publisher.
