I know, I'll write a novel!

What the hell. I'll write a novel. That's what I told myself. I sat down and banged out a short 300 word opening hook and then realized I had forgotten a plot and I had no specific ideas about characterization. Shrug. That never stopped Tom Clancy. He's a jingoistic hack, but people buy his books.

I work long hours, my weekends are taken up by developing a logic programming system for Perl and now I want to start on a novel? What the hell is wrong with me?

Hmm ... I understand the back story. Now to work on the plot.
