I believe I started to write my first book when I was eleven. It was called The Rebellion, perhaps sounding a bit like what an angsty preteenager would want to do.
I've written a number of (very) short stories over the years but always wanted to write a novel. Now I have. It took me several months (I started before the election), though work on the book was sporadic. The whole process takes far longer than I ever imagined. I admire those who can make a profit on it as it's clearly exceptionally difficult.
And for better or for worse, I've released it into the public domain.

Thank you for reading. (This post, anyways.)
