This blog is not even a week old, and I've already changed the title.
I've done it because my friend Tim (whose film-making misadventures you can follow here) pointed out to me that "Failing Novelist" sounded both self-pitying and as if I were fishing for reassurance that it's not so.
After some thought I decided he was right. I wanted "Not (Yet) a Novelist", but that was taken, so "Not a Novelist (Yet)" it shall be.
It's staying that way this time. Promise!
