I've always wanted to be a writer, or at least for as long as I can remember. I have been published by a few small literary magazines, but than was back in college. What I really want is to write a great novel. Not just any novel, but a really great novel that people would remember. I started once. I was very happy with how it was coming. About a hundred or so pages into it, my computer crashed. I had no backup. It was gone. All gone. I tried several times to start over but it was too frustrating. So I gave up completely. Lately, however, I've been thinking about starting again with a new story and leaving that one. Maybe I just need to start fresh. Maybe one day I will finish a novel, just not that novel. And maybe one day I will get back to that one after all.
