Hi. My name is Scott Couchman. I would like to be a novelist! By this, I don’t mean I am writing a novel, or I’ve written one, I just don’t have an agent or publisher yet. I mean, I can walk into Borders or Vromans and see my book on the shelf. I can secretly rearrange the face outs of the books, so my book gets face time. I can put my book on my shelf and be impressed with that big publishing house’s logo for it on the spine.
Then I can do it all again with the next book.
Currently, I have written a pair of books to completion, and while at first I thought it was the most horrible bit of prose to hit a page, a couple of years later, I look at the first novel and think, this isn’t so bad. With some heavy rewriting, I may get somewhere with it. It is definitely better than some of the crap I’ve read.
So now, I am on the path to rebuilding that novel and shopping it out to agents. I figured I would track my progress to my invisible masses of fans 🙂 with this public diary. To keep in the habit of writing little bits, I’m not limiting the site to just my writing journeys, because there are times I want to just scream to the world about this and that or tell about this great link or program I found, etc.
So I hope you enjoy the blog, and when it comes out, I hope you’ll buy my book!
Scott F. Couchman
