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.

No zombies, sorry. But I agree, zombies are a welcome addition to almost anything.

Yes, post your first 13. Nothing to fear here. Just a lot of people who spend hours here instead of doing actual writing.

Definitely apocalyptic. Might as well go big for the first one right?

I got the guts to post my first 13 if anyone is interested. After only a few days on here I know inarticulatebabbler always something good to add to the conversation.

Why 118? Surely there aren't that many Nathans here already...

It's just a screen name. The 118 has significance from High School...nothing too exciting though.
