National Bob Loblaw Month

Boy, that NaNoWriMo site is just a hornet's nest of slow load times, browser incompatibility, busted links and non-working Flash and Java, ain't it?

Anyway, I got about 2100 words done last night. There's a sample up here. How y'all doin'?

Also, not that I have pretentiously placed mine in the 'literary fiction' genre, because I am a lame defensive shit who doesn't really cotton to his precious work being called a 'thriller' or a 'mystery' even though it's about people who kill other people for money. In addition, even though I have given my story the most awful title imaginable (plucked from an Eggs song, to give it an extra frisson of sad-little-clownistry), I spent like ten minutes this morning flipping through other peoples' profiles so I could laugh at the terrible titles they give their books. I am a bad person.
