... I have neglected what ought to be my overriding ambition: work on the novel.
My rationale has always been that in the time it would take me to progress a work of fiction 400 or 500 words, with the probability of the thing not finding a publisher at the end of the day, I can write an 800 - 1000 word review, have it online and know it will find a readership.
But the concept of the novel won't let me be. It keeps plucking away at my imagination. The sections I've written so far vary between the inspired and the fuck-awful, and I desperately need to reconsider the structure. To this end, I need to have some time away from TAOTM.
However, I don't want to let the blog lapse. I've got about a fortnight's worth of material prepared, and I'd like to augment it by featuring guest posts. Which is why, to reiterate the title of this post, The Agitation of the Mind needs YOU.
No limits as regards length, no strictures as regards subject. Anything cinema-related. Anything arts related. Hell, pretty much anything!
