I wish that subject line was the title of the new novel that I've been writing. Sadly, it's a declaration of defeat. While I thought that I had the time and discipline for such a audacious effort, I found that I would not likely be able to keep up with the 1,667 words-per-day pace that would be required to put forth a 50,000 page novel by November 30th. Someday, maybe my schedule will allow it. For now, I'll have to back-burner the Great American Novel. That is all.
