Pittsfield, MA (PRWEB) October 15, 2012
JohnHattaway.com is announcing that writer John Hattaway will write and submit the winning story to New Rivers Press (location) Many Voices Project: Prose. Mr. Hattaway is posting a Part and Chapter outline of the book and will write, beginning to end, prior to the November 1, 2012 deadline. Additional information about John Hattaway’s submission piece can be read at his website.
Mr. Hattaway anticipates the submission will be a surrealistic look into questions of religion, faith, and existence using characters that are irrevocably tied together based on the needs of the needs of reality. "I look forward to writing this and talking about the process as I go along. The work will be hard, the days long, and the outcome uncertain, but I feel like I have the talent and natural story-telling ability to succeed and win."
When asked why Mr. Hattaway was writing an entire novel online he said, “I think it’s an interesting exercise. I put new fiction on my website every day of the week and am always thinking about story, what I want to write, and the questions I want to answer.”
Mr. Hattaway went on to share, “I think it’s interesting that someone would choose to write an entire novel where people can see the writing happens in real time, but I think that is disingenuous to the process. There is way too much that goes into a novel and characters that, while possibly interesting to watch, is better explored through questions and answers and fresh, daily submissions.”
A section of the Brass Knobs, Oak Doors website has been set up specifically for questions, answers, and explanations of the writing process.
John Hattaway is a graduate of Fairfield University’s Masters of Fine Arts in Writing program. He works as a Technical Writer and currently lives in Pittsfield, MA with his wife and son.
