Don't Force it to Fit.

I've just finished writing a bit more of my novel. Whew.

Although I think that wit and humour are going to play a large role in the book (most of the characters are strange and funny), there is a darker more moody side to it.

It's not a Pratchett style comedy, more a Carla Lane style: comedy and pathos.

It may be hard to pull off, but if that's the story, then that's they way it will be told.

There is no way any story should be shoe-horned into a genre. I'm writing the story as it is and if agents and publisher like it, great. I've tried my hand at writing stories that I have no love for and they don't work.

Now for chapter 2.
