Lee Writes A Novel

Lee Writes A Novel

By Lee Ragans
Join a writer while they work on their next novel. Not a professional novelist. The writer may have a tendency to get distracted. Subjects covered could be: Professional Wrestling; What the cat did; What the cat is currently doing; what the cat is eating; what show was great last night; what show was bad last night; What game is so distracting that it is keeping the novel from proceeding; That power outage three weeks ago that might happen again, justifying not writing today.
