NaNoWriMo Day 14: If you're keeping on track you should have already hit your 21,000-word mark! You've probably also lost a lot of sleep (and maybe even a little bit of your grip on reality), so it's the perfect time to get philosophical about your work.
I present to you Milan Kundera's The Art of the Novel. In this piece of literary criticism, Kundera examines the evolution, construction, and essence of the novel as an art form through the lens of his own work and through the work of other important and diverse literary figures.
You want to be an "important and diverse literary figure" right? Then get your copy of The Art of the Novel here and get back to work!
