Sometimes it takes more than willpower, a strong cup of coffee, and nagging plot bunnies to get you to finish that novel you’re working on.

Cory Arcangel—computer programmer, composer, and artist—has compiled a collection of hilarious tweets from various aspiring writers facing the crazy ride that is writing a novel.

What does it feel like to try and create something new? How is it possible to find a space for the demands of writing a novel in a world of instant communication?

Working on My Novel is about the act of creation and the gap between the different ways we express ourselves today. Exploring the extremes of making art, from satisfaction and even euphoria to those days or nights when nothing will come, it’s the story of what it means to be a creative person, and why we keep on trying.
