A : I'm Jo, previously Jus d'Orange née Just Obfuscation.

I like to write but, honestly, your six-year-old could probably do better. I'm afraid the sophistication train left without me.

I'm very left, very late trans. Manqué in most things. I love a lot, talk too much, eat too much, drink too little, worship nothing, believe in the Absurd.

Pay no attention to me.

This morning I’m wondering if my novel isn’t genre after all but rather a . Maybe one is just the vehicle for the other. Maybe everything is a Bildungsroman to some extent. Or maybe it’s all just autobiographical and it’s really about my own journey as I write my first novel... 🤔

Does this happen to all writers or is it just my personal craziness?

Really glad I reread advice today by @ScottSigler on 'How to write your first novel: a five step plan.' It's at least ten years old but so funny and so true!

If this is your first (like it is mine) this might just help.

I can’t believe I’m doing .
It hasn’t sunk in yet. But after day 1, I’m two chapters and 1600 words in. 🤪

Surely I can’t sustain this AND complete two online courses at the same time. (Two weeks on podcasting; six weeks on Humanism.)

I must be crazy. Yes that’s a more likely explanation.

Igor, prepare the corner in which I will jibber
