My First Novel

I recently took a 9 day vacation. Rather than partying in Vegas or taking a cruise in the Caribbean I went in another direction. I wrote 21,000 words and finished the initial draft of my first novel ever, “The Gnostic: Book One”. This is my third attempt at writing a novel length work, and let me tell you, it was a learning experience! As I read over the beginning chapters I am reminded that my skill has improved a bit over a year and a half of working on the novel and various side projects. The first chapters are horrific! That said, the story itself holds up, even when the writing does not, so I should be able to clean a lot up in the first rewrite.

So there’s a benchmark in life… The first novel. I intend to write several more! Or at least a few more…
