Close, so close....

The finishing post is in sight for my thesis. 93,000 words written; 7,000 to go. Then a bit of editing, and I'll magically get some free time back for reading...

Hi Vanessa, nice to hear from you again.

Cormac McCarthy and the Cities of God, Man and the Plain.

An analysis of McCarthy's fiction and how some of his preoccupations come to compromise the work.

Wow, lucky. I'm currently trying to get my first "novel" published. I put it in quotations because it's hardly a novel, only 35,000 words. The problem is - it is completely finished to me. The problem is, novellas are much harder to get published... good luck with the rest of the novel!
