A wee while earlier, the first draft of Pauly’s Gumbo, his contribution to this year’s NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) competition, was finished. 54,000 words. After less than a few days off, he begun his second draft. Now that‘s finished. I’m amazed. This is what he’s revealed so far of its contents:
Someone recently asked me… What’s your novel about? I didn’thave an answer at the time because it wasn’t complete. Now after penning over 54,000 words, I can honestly say that it’s 100% pure Americana trash. Indeed, Gumbo is nothing short of purenarcissistic drivel. For all you poker addicts out there, I included a random poker scene. A chapter of the novel takes place at the Bellagioin Las Vegas. Other locales include Amsterdam, New York, and Seattle. I let the self-appointed Tao of Pauly’s sex tips expert, Briana, take a sneak peak at Chapter 1. When she was done she had a horrified look onher face. When I asked her to share her thoughts she muttered, "Wow, you weren’t kidding. Sex, drugs, AND rock and roll." She was only on page 9.
