    They say there is at least one good book in all of us, so with that said what would you book be?
    A single novel, a trilogy, etc....would it be set in the future, an alternative past, a world of magic, a land where myths are history fact...
    I finally have time to do what I've always wanted -> write the great Novel

    I've no idea. Really.

    I suspect it'd be science-fiction, set in the far distant future. I've no idea what would happen though.

    I don't think I have got a good book in me, tbh

    I've been writing two short pieces for my English degree, one is about a man who falls in love with an imaginary woman in his dreams and the other is about a cleaner who finds a story by an unknown author about a frustrated writer who accidentally plagiarizes Nikolai Gogol's short story The Overcoat (it's your basic frame narrative...).

    My next piece is going to be about the true story behind an internet meme.

    To be honest I would not want to attempt to write a novel at this stage, I find the short story to be a much more fun and experimental medium with which to work with.

    Singularity.

    According to some, all that there is, is yourself. My book would be an autobiography, the story of your life. Unfortunately, you will never get to finish it.
