I'm sure this phrase means different things to different people but, I wonder, do you think you have it in you to write one? I'm talking about the kind of required reading we all enjoyed, classics we loved in spite of them being forcefed. I wonder what form your novel would take, what characters might live within its pages. Who are those people? What will happen to them?
As for me the answer is a definite yes. I just need more practice and more time.
