A Small Turnip

I'm an optimist. One day, I'm going to write the first word of the first sentence of the first paragraph of the the first page of my picaresque romp of a novel. I believe it, I really do.

I'm frankly doubtful that I'll get much further than that, though. Too many cups to tea to make; too many games of Freecell to lose.
