Working on my #novel

A newly published book by US artist Cory Arcangel has sourced from twitter 127 tweets which include the phrasing in whatever personal context “working on my novel”. It’s a book about the creative process of writing a book: the struggle and conflicts, the time, the feedback and support. Apart from its cute concept, which kind of reminds me of an episode of Seinfeld when Kramer comes up with the idea of a Coffee Table Book about coffee tables. The prototype of his idea, he demonstrates further by adding legs to the book so that it can be used as a small coffee table in itself and it gets published, now that was hilarious! Maybe the pointlessness of it, is the motive for its publication.
