Earlier in the week, dared me to start a novel the next day. To prove I’m above such obvious attempts at manipulation, I waited two days to start. So there.

Here’s the opening of the first chapter.

You know about Occam’s Razor, right? The law that posits that the simplest solution to a problem is usually the right one? Like when your TV doesn’t work, the first thing you check is to make sure that the plug is actually in a socket. Well, in my house we have something called Bill’s Razor, which posits that the first step in fixing anything broken is for my dad to give it a good whack.
