I've been working on my first novel since last spring, and it's about halfway done now (60k words so far). I've been reading interesting posts on this website for months now, and I thought it was about time I finally joined the discussion. Glad to be here.
The book is about mankind's race to escape the earth as a deadly cycle of extinction quickly approaches, threatening to kill every last man, woman, and child. It's a race against the clock as plans to leave Earth take shape in the form of a deep space vessel.
Maybe I'll work up the guts to post a 13-line segment soon.
