The book is first person, retrospective. The fictional main character is retelling the events of his life (or some of them anyway). I've been working on it for about 5 anda half years now. It's 2/3rds complete. It is a labor of love, really, because the main character is a part of me. Was a part of me. It's been a long 5 years, and I have more trouble finding his inspiration than I used to. I can't get into the right mood to write 10-30 pages at a time. I can only write 2-5, and it feels more disjointed when I read it back.

Bal Sagoth is helping, though.
