"It's 'Possession' meets 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.'"! Well... that's the plan anyway. One must have something to aim at.

Oh, the Glory of It All
It's hard to write a good novel. It is even hard to write a bad one, though probably a little easier. Right now I find myself saddled with a new character who seems to have wandered in from Daniel Deronda, and not at all sure this is a good idea. When is a tangent just a tangent, and when is it a powerful message from your unconscious? I'll be damned if I know. Liam and Rachel stuck in St. Giles, breathing bad air and wondering how to get out. It's all a long way from Jane Austen.
