Norris, Frank: The Octopus. v1. 06 Aug. 07
Here's a quote from the Wik:
"The Octopus: The Epic Of The Wheat A California Story is a 1901 novel by Frank Norris. It describes the raising of wheat in California, and conflict between the wheat growers and a railway company. Norris was inspired by role of the Southern Pacific Railroad in events surrounding the Mussel Slough Tragedy. It depicts the tension between the corrupt railroad and the ranchers and the ranchers' League."
I hope you like it.
“How to Write the First 3 Paragraphs of YOUR Indie Novel” - by Max Waxwelp1) Always write 3 sentences of exposition; 2) now create some dialogue, preferably no more than 2 sentences; and 3) make certain the dialogue is either inane or humorous. Example:
“Bob, I did not know you wore yellow suspenders,” Sally remarked.
“Gee, Sally, those are not suspenders. I am wearing yellow underwear today,” Bob revealed.
The dialogue above will help produce at least 100 more pages of dialogue.
