OK, here it is. My New Year resolution is the get off my butt and finish at least one book. I've got three in the fire, so to speak. I'd like your opinion as most of you are either successful writers or at least successful readers. Here is a snap shot of the three books, please tell me which one I should focus on.
1. No title yet - SciFi novel. Far future, man is living in domecities, every need handled by the computer, for the most part man is domesticated (as in cattle). Hidden deep in mountain is a Lab. In this lab resides the "other half" of Man, the pure mind. Thye live in a virtual world and they are the ones who maintain the dome worlds, but they don't know this, they are simply doing things as they always have, no idea why. The story tells how a man from the dome discovers the virtual world and how they, the dome dwellers and the virtuals, are reunited according to a mystic plan, clean mind meets clean bodies so Man can reclaim its role as planetary steward.
Book two - Chasing Swallows, A semi-autobiographical novel. It details my journey from middle class America to Communist China. It's a romance, adventure, suspense novel dealing with issue such as internet dating sites, American marginalization of the middle class single white male, American politics and rampant predatory commercialism, Chinese culture vs American culture, Chinese one child policy (which, BTW, I took a risk and violated), and over all its a story of our times at opposite ends of the Earth.
Book three - Drops of Lucidity, a collection of poetry specializing in exploring the minds of people in the news. Not the stars but the school/mall shooters, druggies, war vets, romantics, sucidals, etc.
Also be honest, if none of these sound doable or readable, tell me so I dont waste a lot of time on it. Finally, offer some support cus I don't think I can do it...
