Two Candidates Walk Into A Bar: Chapter 15

The latest chapter of “Two Candidates Walk Into A Bar,” can be found here. It explores a mysterious new coworker, in addition to presenting an experimental description of an online setting. But enough stalling.

 

Why did I miss yesterday’s update?

 

I have excuses to give, but only one of them matters.

 

Writing is a lonely profession, as many people know. And it’s one that depends on long-term gratification. To help myself with that, I take on occasional projects that have immediate benefits. Right now, I’m trying to write a novel, lose weight, prune my song collection, secure a job, and learn more about blogging. At best, I’ll see results for one of those at the end of June. All long-term and no short-term makes Nick bury himself under his covers for a day.

 

The next Trudge-Along Tuesday will be different. I will present to you five ChapterBuzz stories I think you should read. My goal is to get more involved with that community, so that they have a reason to read my own work, and I have someone to write that work for. A bit of short-term feedback will keep me going.

On the next Trudge-Along Tuesday, I will present to you five ChapterBuzz stories I think you should read.

Eagle-eyed readers may be wondering: How did we get to Chapter 14? The last update was for Chapter 2.

You’re not the only ones to notice that. Originally, I uploaded the first part of this novel as two mega-chapters. My proofreaders recommend spacing out the content, and I obliged. Tell me if you think the current format helps this novel, or hurts it!

I submitted Two Candidates Walk Into A Bar for a novel workshop class this year. Here are a few of my classmate’s positive responses. Of course, not everything said about my novel was complimentary.

The Fate of “Two Candidates Walk Into A Bar” rests with YOU!

For each Trudge-Along Tuesday, I plan to show you what I did to advance my writing goals. Ideally, I present something concrete each week, like a new chapter for my novel. But throughout the past few days, my unconscious mind took over my musings on a problem. I wanted to say I finished Amal’s character sheet today. Until I solve this current conundrum, I can’t develop much else.
