I have a completed 45000-word manuscript that falls under the literary fiction category: A retired professor struggles to write the book of his dream. Through imperfect writing, he searches for love and a place where he belongs. He cannot have one without the other.
The novel has three parts: part one is Rahul's story, written in third-person as he struggles to find a plot for his book. He realizes he may not have what it takes to write a major novel. Part two is written in first-person from one of his friend's point of view. Part three goes back to the third-person narrative.
